Panasonic's TH-P50G10A is a 50in plasma television that sits near the top of the company's range. A modern design houses a plasma panel with bleeding edge technology and the quality of the picture is exceptional for this price point. It may not be as attractive as Samsung’s TVs, but Panasonic has done a good job with the design of the TH-P50G10A plasma television. The bezel is less than an inch thick for the most part and has a fading silver accent on the bottom lip. Unlike Panasonic’s previous stands that were chunky and rectangular, this television has a curved one. The stand uses a bracket mounting system that prevents it from swivelling. The remote control is simple to use (if a little boring), although we noticed that the location of some buttons had been shifted around from previous Panasonic remotes.
The menu system is easy to navigate. It has a simple blue and yellow colour scheme, and a few icons to spruce things up a bit.
It’s fine for changing settings and adjusting picture quality, but we found it a little slow when switching between inputs. We can understand why this was the case, however: there are plenty of inputs to choose from. Three HDMI, two component, two S-Video, one VGA (D-Sub) and four composite ports means that you’ll be able to connect more digital video devices than you can poke a remote. There are no USB ports, but Panasonic includes an SD card slot. The TH-P50G10A's picture quality is its crowning glory.
By chance we had the Pioneer set up as well, so we decided to see whether the TH-P50G10A was a worthy spiritual successor to the much-loved KURO plasma TV range. The minimal difference in quality was impressive, given the thousand-dollar disparity in price tags. Black levels are very impressive.
In our The Dark Knight test Blu-ray disc, we were able to see detail in the darkest areas of the picture, while flat black scenes were pure and inky. The screen excels with high contrast scenes as well, with bright white and coloured segments of the screen in stark contrast to pitch black sectors. Colour from the Panasonic TH-P50G10A was well balanced after some tweaking, with blues and greens quite realistic. Reds were a little over-saturated for our liking, but if you prefer a warm picture the default settings are fine.
A full 600Hz sub-field drive refreshes the screen within milliseconds. This means fast panning in documentaries and action movies will be smooth. Power consumption is this Panasonic plasma’s stumbling point. Competing LED and LCD TVs get energy ratings of four stars and upwards, while the TH-P50G10A nets a disappointing two star rating. This may work out to the order of only a few dollars per year, but if you plan on keeping this television for a long time, tack on an extra couple of hundred dollars to the cost. Despite this, the Panasonic TH-P50G10A is an exceptional television. We fully expected Panasonic to inherit the mantle of Pioneer in creating the best consumer plasma televisions.

The hole that Pioneer left when it announced it was leaving television was significant — television reviewers and enthusiasts the world over wept openly in the streets, clawing and clinging to each other with fat-fingered hands and gnashing their red-wine teeth. However, with Panasonic's new range of NEO plasmas the potential of the is almost — ALMOST — a distant memory.
The V10 sits in the middle of the series and combines the price-friendliness of the with the slim styling of the. We were mightily impressed with the G10, can it be that the Viera TH-P50V10A is even better? Design There is a definite 'Panasonic' look the company has given its televisions over the past couple of years. To some it may look a little dowdy, to others simply conservative.
The V series is suitably dour with its black shell and splash of silver. Now, we don't think that what we're about to say is an important consideration when buying a TV but it feels good to touch.
The TV is encompassed by a metal frame which is cool to the touch, and the tapered back of the TV is elegant and well constructed. The panel may be two inches (50mm) at its thinnest point, but like the it's much thicker at the bottom. So, while Panasonic says it's a slim panel it's still 84mm thick — almost three times the thickness of the.

Of course, thickness is redundant if you're not wall-mounting a television as you watch the front, and not the side, of the screen. The size of the stand has more of a bearing, then, and in this case it's one of the egg-shaped numbers the company has employed in the past. What can we say about the remote?
Not much, as it's virtually identical to the G10 one. Get a decent and chuck this one in a drawer. Features The Panasonic Viera TH-P50V10A is a 50-inch plasma that features a full 1080p resolution and a high 40,000:1 native contrast ratio.
Picture processing is one area that the V series focuses on and to this end it features a 1080-line motion resolution (which means no interlacing on movement) and a (which means there's no lag from signal to display). Other picture processing goodness comes in the form of Digital Cinema Colour which involves an additional colour filter on the face of the screen, but there's very little content at present that supports it. When it comes to picture presets, manufacturers such as LG and Pioneer have chosen to align themselves with industry body ISF, while Panasonic has chosen a more populist route in George Lucas' THX. It's a specialised mode which sets the 'colour space' to better match the original DVD source, which is far fewer colours than the Digital Cinema Colour filter displays.
