What a waste.
Pros: Great picture out of the box.
Cons: The THX picture mode disables the anti image retention features. After 2 days of unsuccessfully using the image retention wipe function, the Cartoon Network and NBC Olympic logos appear to be a permanent addion to my picture.

Good TV, but already some image retention.
Pros: Very good picture quality.
Cons: Image retention when using the THX video mode because the anti image retention measures are disabled in THX mode. After 2 weeks of use, I have a Cartoon Network logo and NBC Olympic logo retained on the screen. Am frantically trying to eliminate it with the image rention wipe tool. This would be easily a 5 star TV if this would not have happened in the first 2 weeks of use. I have owned a Pioneer Elite plasma for years and have NEVER had a problem with image retention.

Panasonic 50" GT50
Pros: Color Quality, Black Levels, THX Mode, Sleek Look
Cons: Cost of Compatible 3D Glasses
Other Thoughts: Beautiful TV! Flagship level picture quality at a fraction of the cost. Black levels are near perfect and color scale is second to none. The 3D on this set is also simply amazing. Put it on THX mode and calibration is unnecessary! Input lag for gaming is also very low, it's going to take some getting used to but that's not a bad thing at all. Better looking than the ST, THX cert., and cheaper than the VT ... This is definitely the route to go if you're in the market for a plasma!
