The Panasonic TH-50PHW3 is one of the top of the line plasma televisions and has a 50 inch screen size when measured diagonally. The set is costing somewhere around 11 to 12 grand which makes it a prospect only for the super rich. With most of the plasmas today costing between $3000 and $4000 (even though not all that cheap) but much more accessible to the middle class.
The full display resolution of the set is 1366 by 768 which is just a bit higher than 720p. The difference between the horizontal resolutions is not big enough to be differentiable. All the input signals are scaled to fit the native resolution. The set gives an aspect ratio of 16:9. The dimensions of the set are 47.6 inches in width, 28.5 inches in height and 3.9 inches in depth. The set weighs in at less than 100 pounds which is quite commendable. The small depth of the set is sure to catch the attention of plenty of people as it makes the set look very sleek.
The performance of the set is much more than noteworthy. Out of the box the set offers an excellent picture with really high brightness and sharpness. With a little bit of calibration (which I am sure that you will be able to do at home) the picture showed even the finest of details. Some of the plasmas show excessive video noise especially during dark scenes but the picture of the Panasonic TH-50PHW3 was quite stable and did not show any noise. Even though the set has better black levels than most other plasmas some of the details during the dark scenes were lost which is a fault with the plasma technology itself.
