"Best picture, color and blackness in this price range!"5.0 starson by nelsonabreu
Pros: First of all, the P50 is sleek, it looks like a screen twice it's price. The amount of inputs is very impressive, let alone on a mid priced television. HD input reveals true to life sharpness that will maake you think you are looking out a window.
Cons: The amount of heat generated by this screen can practically heat a room in the winter. Very low bass at high volume is definitely the audio weakness, but paired with a surround sound system that doesn't really matter.
Summary: Overall, you simply cannot beat the performance for your money. I have seen this screen with identical input next to high end Sony and Panasonics, and the contrast and trueness to color right out of the box are shockingly superior. Watching a football game or car race live in HD shows the processors strength, keeping the in focus object sharp and clear, without blurring the background that is moving by at high speed. While the audio yields to Sony and Samsung, this is not a screen likely to be found without a surround sound system, so using the internal speakers as a center channel or not at all is the more likely scenario. I personally recommend disabling the "extra features" and concentrating on getting a good input. Feed a Blu Ray over a decent HDMI cable will leave you so immersed in the movie you'll forget you are in your living room. Avoid bright lighting behind the viewer, as some find the bezel a bit too reflective.
