I have an exciting new plasma television to talk to you about today, folks–the absolutely beautiful Panasonic TC-P50G25. This thing has plenty to like about it, and you’ll see why I’m enamored with it in just a moment.
The Panasonic TC-P50G25 is a fifty inch 1080p plasma television that offers Skype compatibility, an anti-glare screen, two ten watt speakers with a surround mode, three HDMI inputs, two composite video inputs, two audio inputs, a PC input, a digital audio output, a USB port, and an SD memory card port.
Now, when you look at this thing, it’s absolutely fantastic. Panasonic is widely known for its top of the line picture, and the sound is also pretty sweet. The question here becomes one of longevity. Now, obviously, I didn’t handle one of these steadily over the course of a year or more so this is a case where your mileage will likely vary, but it is becoming something of a standard in the industry that Panasonic’s black level falters the longer it’s been played. It’s almost a case of the flame that burns twice as bright burning only half as long, except with black levels. They’re great to start with, but some have said that it doesn’t last. Like I said, your mileage may absolutely vary, but it’s something to keep in mind. And when you consider that this is retailing for as much as fifteen hundred bucks out at Amazon (though there are better deals out there, you have to do a little shopping around), it is certainly something you’ll want to consider.
But it’s definitely a good quality system, at least when you pick it up. You may not like the longevity on the Panasonic TC-P50G25, but it’s great out of the box.
