TC-P50GT50 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great purchase This product is easy to use and has one of the clearest pictures we've seen in many of the other televisions we have used in the past. It is better than our Vizio. We would definitely recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy I was looking for a TV and i wanted a Plasma because of the 600Hz for gaming. I saw Panasonic and knew they where the people to go to for Plasma. So I made the purchase and never looked back

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best 50" Panasonic Plasma Ever Built This was a replacement of a 47" Panasonic TC-L47E50. If you own this 47" led then you might have a problem with lines going from top to bottom that are 2 or three inches apart. And they look like bars.I have owned the TC-P50GT50 tv since April 2013 and it works perfectly as day one. This has to be the best tv that Panasonic has made in 2012 or ever. I don't know what to list and tell you about first. The picture is better than amazing and so are the 8 train speakers w/subwoofer. And all of the other features are wicked awesome as well. If you can still find one, and I bet you can get a great deal on the price then go out and buy it. You can't go wrong with this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST PLASMA ON THE MARKET! Purchased my Panasonic TC-P50GT50 and loved it right out of the box! Super great colors with deep blacks and a sleek design along with a faster computer processor for wireless entertainment. Paid a little extra to get the TC-P50GT50 for the THX viewing mode and love it! The sound from this television isn’t the best, but then that seems to be universal for all plasma/LCD/LED televisions. I went ahead and hooked up my plasma to a Panasonic sound system (SC-HTB350) and it’s perfect for my man cave. However, as much as I love my TC-P50GT50, BE WARNED… SOME OF THESE PANASONICS SUFFER FROM A BUZZING NOISE PROBLEM. I had read prior reviews regarding the problem before purchasing my TC-P50GT50, but figured it wasn’t a major problem. Well, within a few hours of turning on my TC-P50GT50, I detected a buzzing noise that was more noticeable than my other Panasonic plasma (TC-46PGT24). I also noticed the buzzing noise got louder the brighter the screen got. I immediately called Panasonic’s customer service and they promptly scheduled a repair technician to come out and inspect the television without any hassles whatsoever. Within three business days a technician was at my home and ultimately determined the main motherboard was malfunctioning. Five business days later, the technician was back at my house replacing the motherboard with a new one. Now, my TC-P50GT50 works beautifully without the annoying buzzing noise. Overall, great support from Panasonic’s customer service and warranty department.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 50GT50 plasma Met all my expectations. Great blacks, colors, and sharpness. Very life like picture. Good on tv hd movies and blu-ray is superb. It is 3D and looks as good if not better that Imax 3 D. Glassed Ok but cost too much. Should only be about $40. I woud not trade it for any other TV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy it......! This is my 2nd Panasonic Plasma TV. My 1st 3D. Very happy with my buy. Great picture, easy to setup. Will up scale veiwing to 3D. Did not come with 3D glasses, but bought 2 pairs that are 100% better than the free ones from other brands. Great value

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am really amazed by this unit! I have nothing at all to say about this unit but awesome. Easy networking and straming of Netflix. Awesome picture quality in both 3D and normal. No distortion or pixilation with fast movements like I have seen in other units. Every day I like this unit more and more. This is one fun, very smart, very cool video unit! It is a disservice to call it a TV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TC-P50GT50 The first plasma I ever purchased. The picture quality is excellent with HDTV Programs and even better with blu ray. This replaced a 47 inch LCD. The plasma picture quality is by far better than the LCD. The smart features on the Panasonic are a plus. I also purchased the Panasonic 3D Blu Ray BD-320 to go with the tv. The remote takes some getting use to on the Blu Ray. Overall both of the Panasonic products perform great.

  • What should I do if my TV will not turn on and the power indicator LED is not flashing?
    Follow these troubleshooting steps:
    • Make sure your TV's power cord is plugged into an electrical outlet.
    • Make sure the electrical outlet the TV is plugged into has power by testing known working device in that outlet.
    • After verifying the TV is plugged into a working outlet, try pressing the [POWER] button on the TV instead of the TV remote.
    If the outlet is working and the TV will not turn on after pressing the [POWER] button on the TV, please consider having the unit serviced. Click here for Panasonic Service Locator.
  • What should I do if the front Power indicator LED light is blinking?
    1. Unplug the TV's power cord.
    2. Unplug all cables.
    3. Power the TV using a different power outlet (do not use a power strip or surge protector).

    If the problem persists, please consider having the TV serviced. Click here for Panasonic Service Locator.

    Note: Count how many times the LED light blinks. This can help a technician troubleshoot the problem.
  • What should I do if I can access all of the TV apps except Netflix?
    1. Change the DNS setting of your TV to
    2. If you are able to access the Netflix splash screen, use the TV remote to deactivate your account by pressing Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, Up, Up, Up, Up. After this process, try loggin back into the Netflix TV app.

    If the procedure is successful a screen will come up with the option to deactivate your device from your account. If not try the process again. Once you have successfully deactivated your device, you will need to activate it by opening Netflix and at the main screen selecting Member Sign In, then following the on screen prompts until activation is complete.

    If the Netflix app still fails to open, but all of the other TV apps work, visit for more support.

  • What should I do if I have bars displaying on the TV screen?
    Change the format (aspect ratio) of the picture by pressing the [FORMAT] or [ASPECT] button on the TV's remote control. If you still have bars, check the aspect settings on your external video source, such as Cable/Satellite box, DVD/Blu-ray Disc player, etc. Note: Some content, such as film-based movies, are available in extra-wide format. Top and bottom bars are unavoidable.
