Introduction

The Panasonic TC-P50U1 is a pretty basic model, at least as basic as they come in the 50-inch plasma category (that's a lot of screen real estate, mind you). Skipping the fancy, and frequently pointless, special processing features, Panasonic has made a TV that delivers acceptable performance for a decent price.
