Introduction

The 65-inch VT50 series plasma HDTV is Panasonic's best in show, top-of-the-line flagship for this year. It'll cost you just a little under four grand (at MSRP $3699), and it's served hot with all the toppings: full HD 3D, dual 8-train speakers with an integrated subwoofer, Panasonic's Viera Connect smart platform, 2500Hz Focused Field Drive motion, the new Touch Pad controller, and a gorgeous glass and metal design. Mama mia, that's a spicy meatball.

The Panasonic Viera TC-P65VT50 is swinging for the fences, and both our objective and subjective tests have shown that it's a home run. Accurate color, smooth motion, and well above average audio quality are just a few perks this TV brings to the table. Whether you're just looking for a TV with solid core performance, or are more interested in 3D movies and streaming content, or want a suitable host to your home theater hub, the VT50 is an expensive, but smart, investment. But don't take our word for it; the P65VT50's test results say plenty.
