Panasonic Viera TH-50PZ800U Review

July 20, 2008 – 1:47 pm, posted by Oliver

2008 is the first year where HDTV sets are a common item across the world, now taking their place in the living rooms of millions of people, but if you haven’t made the switch to HD yet, and have a bit of cash to throw around, this TV is definitely worth considering.

Sleek isn’t even it; this TV represents the pinnacle of modern design, with it’s black surround and stand, and incredibly thin profile. As a finishing touch, Panasonic took a sheet of glass just slightly bigger than the TV and placed it on the front to protect the display and provide a clearer picture, which also completes the design with it’s tiny overlap.

In terms of the technical aspects, the Panasonic Viera TH-50PZ800U sends out the highest quality colour you’re likely to get from a TV, providing the viewer with a crystal clear image with very little false contouring. The picture quality is boosted even further by the TV’s THX mode, which takes away the need for in-depth calibration, therefore improving the picture quality even further.

If you don’t want THX mode, then you can step down to the lower spec TH-PZ85U, where everything else is much the same, but most people find the THX mode well worth the extra cost.

50 inches of pure viewing pleasure come complete with the Panasonic Viera TH-50PZ800U, as well as a 1920×1080 pixel resolution, and can be purchased for as cheap as $2,199 in some places. Definitely worth considering if you’re looking for an HDTV this summer.
