From AV Forum Review and I quote:-

We have seen a number of excellent TVs from Panasonic this year but sadly the TX-50A400B is not one of them.

In fact it's one of the worst TVs we have reviewed so far, failing on almost every level to deliver the kind of performance, value and features we would expect from even a budget TV.

The design itself isn't too bad, with contemporary lines and a glossy black plastic construction and the build quality is acceptable for the price point. There are only two HDMI inputs but the remote control, whilst small, at least gets the job done. The lack of an 'S' suffix in the model number means that the A400 has no real smart features but at least the media player via USB is very effective. The sound quality was passable but for a TV of this size it really should have been better. At least the energy usage was minimal and the input lag was excellent at 28ms but that's about it for the positives.

Once we move onto the picture quality, things take a serious turn for the worst. The greyscale performance was very poor, with a huge excess of blue in the darker parts of the image and a cyan tinge to the whites. The gamma was clipping hugely in the brighter parts of the image, robbing it of detail and the black levels were very poor. So the dynamic range was very weak and as a result the images had no impact at all. The colour accuracy was also poor and made worse by the issues with the greyscale but, with no calibration controls, there was absolutely nothing we could do about either. At least the video processing and Full HD panel weren't too bad, although the motion handling was also very mediocre.

Ultimately the Panasonic TX-50A400B delivered a very weak image that disappointed, even for a budget TV, and at £499 it isn't even that cheap.

Frankly, there are plenty of better and cheaper alternatives available.

Leave well alone - at any price

Ignore the above review, that is the opinion of a reviewer who probably sits there with a magnifying glass to see if the blacks are black. I have had this set for a little over 5 months and yes it's not a smart to, but it can't be faulted for anything else, sound is good and pic quality is crisp. Use it for ps4 mainly. Freeview hd is nice and crisp.

50"?
Under £500.00?
It must be great.

****.
Cold.

I've got this tv, it's fantastic, try reading some user reviews elsewhere. Great for gaming or TV. Heat
#7
Trouble is, you only know you have a sh1t TV if you compare it to a decent one next to it ..... so you may think it's great.

I suspect it's as the review says - cr4p.

The mickey mouse price backs up the review.

Pay just £350 more and get something worth the lounge space .... it's just 2 days pay after all, it's common sense.

mr ree is right I bought this tv about 5 months ago advertised on here from asda at £259 glad I didn't pay any more than that, its only a stop gap anyway until 4k becomes cheaper and better .on a dark screen there are grey patches in the corner terrible sd but hd channels r good, red seems overblown on mine there must be better out there for the price
#9
Put things into perspective guys. It's a 50" branded TV for less than 350 quid.
I got this TV about 3 months ago for the kids to play the ps4 on, and I think the HD quality is every bit as good as the Samsung in the lounge that cost 4 times as much.
It might not be smart or 3d but the picture quality is just fine.

Pay just £350 more? Wait! That's twice as much!
I bet this TV is a lot better than the "crap" they were all fighting over on Black Friday!
#11
Great deal! Nice find!
#12
I also bought this tv from asda for 259 to be faur sound quality is ok. The looks are ok but apart from that so not buy it at that price terrible standard channels its a reason it is cheap the screen is worse than an hitatchi/argos tv

Surprised at the reviews, aren't all Panny's excellent? Or just their plasma?

Yes you must ignore this review. I mean why on earth would anyone want to read an independent review when you get get the 100% truthful information from 'BargainJunkieExpertReviews.com' - the only reviews that really matter.

For the price you can't fault it. I have had the TV for about 2 months now. I only use it to watch movies or play games. It has its faults (blacks are not dark enough) but what do you expect for a TV costing less then £350???

You will need to calibrate it when you use it the first time. Once that is done the picture will improve quite a bit.

If you want a better TV then you will have to pay double. Simples!
#16
I have this tv and for the money can't fault it. It looks good and does what it's meant to. The picture quality is fine and if your gonna complain that the quality is not that of a £700 plus tv, then stop being tight looking for a deal on here and go and buy a dearer tv. I for one are happy with the tv and the extra money in my pocket

I've got this tv too for £439 at Amazon. I've worked in TV over 20 years and the picture quality is great! Very happy with it

Sad that Panasonic could release such a bad TV. Used to be consistently good quality.

Twenty years?

Can't believe how cheap 50'' LED TVs have become over the past year!
#22
Sorry but can anyone confirm this price? Just before I venture down to my local Tesco superstore. I don't mind risking £335.20 if it really is this price.

Had the 42" version of this TV and returned it. Nothing special about the picture quality at all on these sets, and it's average at best. Even blu-ray upscaling on mine made no difference compared to a Samsung we have. Maybe it was a faulty set, but the reviews were spot on imo.

av forums mentions poor motion , other than gamining id use for watching football, anyone who has it offer any comfort that its good for motion
