Panasonic TX-P50VT65B review
|Review: May 2013|
In a nutshell: The Panasonic Viera TX-P50VT65B delivers reference quality blacks, flawless 3000Hz motion, superb Smart TV and a stunning 50 inch design. It's the best 50 inch TV we've ever reviewed!
This is the 50 inch version of the VT65 series TV that we reviewed previously. We described the 55-incher version as the best TV we've ever reviewed. The 50 inch model is £600 cheaper, so if the size or the cost of the larger version deter you, then you should seriously consider getting hold of this one.
Read our detailed review of the TX-P55VT65B for a full assessment, but in summary here are the key reasons why you might want this TV:
- Perfect picture quality with reference quality blacks, high contrast, accurate colour reproduction, THX mode and minimal screen reflections
- 3,000Hz refresh rate with flawless 24p and 50Hz performance
- Minimal lag for gaming
- Outstanding active shutter 3D
- Excellent Smart TV and graphical user interface
- Built-in camera for Skype
- Excellent audio quality with dedicated subwoofer
- Dual tuners - watch and record simultaneously
- Wide range of connectivity options
- Stylish design with V-shaped stand
The C-class energy consumption is about twice as much as an equivalent LED TV, but you won't find any other reason not to buy it, apart from the price.

I've gone from the legendary a 50"Pioneer Kuro to this model & i'm very impressed. It took me ages to find the replacement(for the king) but this is it! & the cheapest.
