With all the 3D LED LCD TVs flooding the market place, we seem to have forgotten about plasmas. While they may still be a power hog, there's no denying the fact that they still produce some of the best black levels and they are quite a bit cheaper than LCDs.
In Q4 of 2010, Panasonic launched its version of 3D plasmas in India and today we'll be bringing you a review of the 50-inch beast, the P50VT20D. This full HD TV comes packed with features like VIERA Cast, THX certified display, memory card reader and USB ports with support for AVCHD and DivX HD. According to Panasonic, the TV supports a 600Hz sub-field rive engine, which is supposed to give a smoother, flicker free video. The TV is shipped with a single pair of 3D glasses that I've got to say look really slick. Sadly, it comes with only one pair of 3D glasses.
The glasses don't have a rechargeable battery like the one LG uses, instead they work on a button cell. There is a power button to turn the glasses on and off. The TV comes bundled with the remote, some batteries, instruction manual and wall mounting bracket. The overall look of the TV is very understated and simple as compared to some of the flashy LED TVs in the market. Since this is a plasma, it isn't exactly thin and quite heavy at 30Kg with the stand.
