Oct 31, at The reason for my late post was to get it set up, running misc content, and get it calibrated. So I'll be giving you Panasonic Viera TH-P42UT50Z TV review of my 42UT50 based on the limited time I've had with it thus far.

As I mentioned earlier. I planned on ordering both the 42 and 55UT50 but I decided to hold off on the 55" until I at least got the 42" for the bedroom to see how it met my standards which are high. First off I want to get this outta the way What a tv this is.


So to say I'm accustomed to jet blacks, near perfect color accuracy, fluid motion, and a tv able to handle any content pal, ntsc, sd, hd, etc with ease is an understatement. There is no one area that my Kuro outperforms the 42UT Let me repeat that I'll break this review down in segments hoping not to leave anything off. Blacks- Obviously we all know contrast ratio is the most important aspect of picture quality, rivaling color and resolution itself. Panasonic Viera TH-P42UT50Z TV

The blacks your tv is able to reproduce tells us exactly what we're dealing with. I was expecting the worse here from my previous experience with Panasonic plasmas, and in Panasonic Viera TH-P42UT50Z TV every other tv that didn't bare the logo "Kuro" or "Pioneer" on it. I will ignore local dimming LCDs due to the fact that their pixels shut off and to me it's not a proper measurement. Black crush, blooming, etc not in the same league.


I had a 42ST30 for a short time before returning it last year. It was a long shot from my Kuro to the point blacks looked grey with this demo disc, and nearly every Blu-ray movie I tried on it. Even calibrated I wasn't satisfied with the color either, but I'll cover that later.

Anyone else with a dead (or repaired) Panasonic Plasma?

The blacks on this tv will satisfy anyone. The scene in particular with objects and fish swimming in an all-black environment had my jaw dropped. In my man cave in which Panasonic Viera TH-P42UT50Z TV do all my critical viewing in the dark you could see nothing but the fish or object on screen. The bezel of the tv, along with the walls and room itself vanished. I could barely make out the black on the tv.

In fact it at times it had more pop than my Kuro due to a brighter picture. Panasonic Viera TH-P42UT50Z TV tested this with some of my favorite movies with dark scenes including The Thing, Sin City, and Batman and not once did I pay attention to the anamorphic black bars. Outside of the Kuro there is no other tv that impressed me like this. Even with last year's top of the line sets I found myself distracted by the greyish bars to the point Panasonic Viera TH-P42UT50Z TV couldn't enjoy dark films.

It was certainly not the case here. Anamorphic Black Bars- Not including LCDs with local dimming, this is the only other tv other than the Kuro with black bars vanishing in all but extreme dark scenes. When the screen goes Panasonic Viera TH-P42UT50Z TV then yeah you can see a slight glow. The only difference is with any content present and I give the nod to the UT50 due to more brightness and pop not lcd fake pop but overall natural pop.

During the first couple Panasonic Viera TH-P42UT50Z TV of Sin City I sorta noticed the bars like any other quality plasma Kuro but for the rest of the film it Panasonic Viera TH-P42UT50Z TV once your eyes get used to seeing that much dark. I sound like a broken record here but I don't know how to describe it other than being very Kuroish. At first I wasn't satisfied with the default hdmi settings similar to the ST30 it just lacked.

But as soon as I changed it to graphics is where it came alive. Now the colors aren't overblown in your face and more subdued Panasonic Viera TH-P42UT50Z TV the Kuro. Skin tones are spot on. I'm sure Panasonic Viera TH-P42UT50Z TV I had the Kuro professionally calibrated it could be better but to me there was always a reddish skin tone that I couldn't defeat. It's still okay but I'd notice it now and then. I haven't seen any skin tone problems yet with the UT I've only spent about 10 hours with it now but this is a problem I usually notice right away with any panel so I believe this one is good to go.
