PANASONIC VIERA TXP50S10 50 inch Plasma TV 1080p HD Ready Freeview

The Panasonic TXP50s10 shows Panasonic HDTV design at its boldest and most impressive.

Featuring a brand new, G12 Full-HD plasma panel, the TX-P50S10 offers a stunning contrast ratio of 2,000,000:1 - that's an impressive 33% improvement on the previous model. Improvements in panel performance have come about from improved production process incorporating the new Real Black Drive system (a pre-discharge system) and raising the base illumination. All signals also benefit from 100Hz technology. 100Hz technology gives a more stable picture with less flicker and reduced motion blur. In addition to 100Hz technology this Panasonic plasma also offers 400Hz Sub field drive. Although different from 100Hz technology in not offering a true interpolation between frames, the 400Hz technology works by pulsing each frame 8 times, thereby upgrading the standard 50Hz signal to an effective 400Hz one. This technology helps give the TXP50S10 superbly fluid motion and stunning realism.

As ever, we'd always recommend a separate home cinema system for the best sound quality, although the built-in system offers enhancements over previous models. V-Audio Surround gives a spacious sound based on actual room measurement from the onboard digital signal processor. Combined with the invisible speakers, it gives a crisp, well-detailed sound quality. The addition of an optical digital output also allows you to maximise the potential of digital TV sound by outputting the signal into your home cinema system.

In this age of HD, it's good to see that the latest Panasonic plasma TV has 3 HDMI sockets - ideal for an HD TV receiver, Blu-ray player and upscaling DVD. One of these is side-mounted making it ideal for an occasionally connected device such as a games console. In addition to this, twin SCART sockets, VGA (for a PC) and component inputs are on hand for analogue sources. A slightly more unusual fitment, but still welcome nonetheless is a SD card reader. This easily accessible slot is perfect for showing pictures taken on your digital camera. The HDMI VIERA link has been upgraded to allow the connection of Panasonic LUMIX digital cameras. Once connected you can use the TV's remote control to playback stored images on the camera.

With a softly contoured, swivel stand and sleek new finish, the TX-P50S10 looks smarter than its predecessors. Always a class favourite, the new 1080p Panasonic TX-P50S10 is now better than ever.

Full HD or not?

1080i is HD Ready
1080p is Full HD Compatible (as long as you have a HD Source, like Blu Ray or Sky HD)

OP should delete "HD ready" from the title, this TV is full HD.

Why? The Richer Sounds website lists this as HD Ready?

Full HD ready is of course HD Ready as well, its a superset if you remember Venn diagrams from school!

My point was that.

We all know it can do things HD ready, but may put off people who arn't sure on the terms.:)

50" eh? Where will this size fight end I wonder.

And the terms are NOT defined - only discussed.
HD ready means it will accept an HD source - nothing more than that. Whether the electronics need to upscale or not depends on the actual resolution which means "read on".
This is a 1080p HD ready. This means it is 1080p resolution (Full HD) and that it accepts an HD source.
No that it matters, Virgin Media and Sky and Xbox360 still limit to 720p anyway, so this is really only going to be at best picture with B-R DVD's and a PS3

Anyway, an astounding deal as I bought the previous Panny 720p model (which is incidentally the mutts plums) at over £1K not so long ago.When you look at the technology that goes into manufacturing the plasma 1080p display, I cannot fathom how they can do this AND ship it in/pay taxes/shop commission etc for the money

There are 60" and 100" available too if you REALLY want to go big.
I have had a 50" for some time. Lovely size!

Is this the 3D 1080p 24fps vreal eieio model?

Its getting cheaper

How does this compare with the G10 / 15?

3d for 700 notes, what do you think?

It's not 3D

xbox360s can output up to 1080p....

2,000,000:1 contrast ratio? :-D

I'm sure they just make these numbers up.

excellent telly, but is it worth waiting for 3D tvs which will drive the price down more?

oh god here we go now everytime a tv is shown people will start jumping out and shouting about 3-D, yeah hope its better than the last attempt at 3d tv.....
was bad enough that 1080p was always being moaned about now its 3D....

zAndy1;7750751

Really;-)

So it is? £700 is a lot.

Would not purchase a new TV without a DVB T2 tuner in (HD freesat), I can see these old sets getting a serious price reduction.

This isn't true. The Xbox 360 can do full 1080p. Sky HD/Virgin Media goes up to 1080i.

Do you mean DVB S2 or do you mean HD freeview?

Cheers, Des.

Got the 50-inch HD Ready Version from Very for £300 less...

Ordered mine from hifibitz for £679 on Monday, being delivered on Saturday. I think this can be got for a similar price from other places.

Depends on the wall This is my 50" on a big wall :

I have the same TV in 60" for an even bigger wall, as I say depends on the wall/room

Not quite true, I'm afraid.

'HD Ready' means that the set can take a 720p or 1080i signal *and* that the set has an HDMI/DVI input that accepts encryption *OR* a component connection that'll accept an unencrypted signal. 1080p HD Ready adds 1080p to the mix, but also specifies the minimum resolution of the set to be 1920x1080 pixels. Full HD is basically a marketing term for a set that has a native resolution of 1920x1080.

As to virgin and sky, they both output 1080i signals (although 720p generally gives a better picture as it's not interlaced) and the xbox 360 is capable of 1080p output. Plus you can also run a media pc through the device to give resolutions in excess of 1080p if you really felt like it, although there's not much point in doing that for the sake of video.

I think it's only the M&S free whiskey of before XMAS

I'm waiting for the lcd v plasma debate to kick in :thumbsup:

If you buy one of these don't forget your hdmi lead from the poundshop - make sure its gold plated - non gold plated make the 1s and 0s too small which makes the picture blurred and the sound too quiet to be clearly heard.

One more thing - if you want to know if the tv has a particular feature why not try this link instead of asking other people to find out for you -

Xbox upscales most of its stuff to 1080p so its not native.

Panasonic TV's are excellent - I have a 46'' G10 this is a brilliant TV

:-D.......v sharp!

Good TV, basically the 2008 PZ80 but in a different chassis.

However I'd either go for one of the G Series ones or wait until the new models start to appear next month.
