TC-P50GT30 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tv I love this tv. I also have a 55 inch ST50, and I'm happy to say that the picture is better on this one. This is the 6th tv I have in my home, so I know a good one from a bad one. I couldn't ask for more in a Plasma (without going o the V series).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expectation-Shattering Value Straight out of the box, this TV performs well across everything I've thrown at it. The picture is crisp, yet color gradation is superb. THX mode makes everything better. When I was purchasing this TV, I overheard one customer extolling the picture quality of the Vivid setting. I laughed to myself and told the salesperson to sell him an LED. Thank you, Panasonic for this magnificent machine. I hope to enjoy this set for many years to come!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 48Hz Flicker I have owned the 50gt30 for the past 3 weeks. The picture quality is amazing and black levels as well as white levels are good. Colors are stunning and the menus provide an easy setup as well as good apps in viera link. The built quality of the set is robust in every way shape or form. While this set is very nice, I have been trying to ignore one problem that I have noticed while using the 48Hz setting to watch movies which has been mentioned everywhere online and can not look beyond the problem. Flickering is very difficult to ignore as it damages the quality of HD video during or watching movies. I have look around to see if the problem has been addressed by panasonic, but have found nothing to that effect. I have come to the conclusion that while there are a lot of good things with this set I feel that to me the quality of the picture means a lot, after all that is the reason I myself decided to buy the new technology. I have been in the field of electronics as an engineering tech for over 30 years and I understand that not set will be identical based on components as may fail right out of the box to failures down the line that no one can stop during or after manufacturing. While this true in all electronic devices, I have also participated in the problem solving of many electronic devices and unless there is a bad irreparable problem like in this instance the screen that most of the other problems can be resolve, but I have yet to see any resolution to this problem. So I decided to return the item this weekend as much as I enjoy this plasma tv because I can really enjoy the set by trying to ignore a problem that I myself can ignore the minute I turn it on to enjoy HD quality video. Sorry for my long review and I hope panasonic takes action towards resolving this problem before more people come to the same conclusion I have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from one of the best tvs on the market great tv been looking for three month before i decided on the g-series plasma. THX mode give a stunning picture right out of the box. great viewing angles and darker blacks makes this tv worth every penny. wireless, full 3d hd. does not come with 3d glasses,and panasonic glasses are some of the most expentive out there. could use a better remote for search on viera connect. overall better than 90% of tv out there.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great TV exceeded expectation Slimmer and lighter than what I expected in plasma TV. Metallic finish on the edges give nice look. Out of box settings and colors are good I did not find any fluctuation it is quieter Even after running for hours it produced very less heat. Less screen reflection with better viewing angle. But only few popular apps some lack content hard to do all operations and search with remote control. Iphone remote control app has reduce some burden.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Entertainment Center We Have Purchased This TV has the highest quality picture that I have seen in any brand. Although we have not yet used the TV for 3D movies, the electronics built into the set create the best 2D. With HDMI cables it coordinates well with our receiver, Panasonic Blu-Ray player, and set top box. The menus are intuitive for the most part and updating is easy. Because the set can accomplish so much, the instruction manual is extensive and in a few instances requires some paging back-and-forth to understand a procedure.

  • I can access other Apps on my TV, but cannot access Netflix. How can I fix this?
    Symptoms:
    • When the Netflix app is selected, the Netflix splash screen appears, then Netflix closes and returns to the VIERA Cast home screen, Network Services screen, or HOME screen.
    • When the Netflix app is selected, "Unable to Connect to Netflix. Please Try Again Later" is displayed
    • Netflix can be accessed, but when a title is selected, "Unable to Play This Title Right Now. Please Try Again Later" is displayed.
    • Netflix can be accessed, a title can be selected, but during playback the picture blanks out, buffers, or freezes frequently.

    Additional Information:
    • Network applications on Panasonic products are only accessible on networks with high speed internet access.

    Suggested Solution:
    • Power the Netflix ready device on and allow at least 90 seconds for it to connect to the network before performing a Connection Test.
    • Once the Connection Test has passed, attempt to open the Netflix application. If the Netflix application fails to open, manually change the Primary DNS settings to 8.8.8.8 and the Secondary DNS to 8.8.4.4. If there is only one DNS setting available, change it to 8.8.8.8 (click here for a TV network troubleshooting tutorial.)
    • Once the DNS has been changed, perform another Connection Test.
    • Once the Connection Test has passed, attempt to open the Netflix application.
    • If none of your applications can be accessed, unplug the power cord of your modem or router for at least 10 seconds.This will reboot your modem or router.
    • If the Netflix application still fails to open, try another network application. If other applications function properly but Netflix does not click here for Netflix Help Center or call Netflix customer support at 1-866-716-0414.

  • The power light on the TV is on steady, but I do not have a picture, sound or both?
    This could be caused by a few factors:

    First check to ensure your TV is selected to the correct input (Source). If you are watching cable or satellite, following the cable from that device to the back of your TV.
    If it is connected to antenna, HDMI 1/2/3, component or video you must also have the TV input select to match that connection. On the remote push the input button to check what source is selected on your TV.
    Very important, you must ensure your cable box or satellite unit is turned on.
    On some cable and satellite boxes, you may get audio with no picture if the box is turned off. If this does not resolve your issue, you may require service.
