Panasonic VIERA TC-P50U50 50-Inch 1080p Full HD Plasma TV just dropped to $599.99 on Amazon. It's usually priced at more than $650 I think. This is my 1st post, so I hope I didn't mess up. There's an old thread about this TV in "Deal Talks", but if you are like me, then you probably never go to there. So I thought I would start a new thread here.

Why the hell does this huge TV only have two HDMI inputs? Horrible...
If you have a receiver already like I do, you do not care about 2 HDMI lol

So my Best Buy did have some of these in stock, but are refusing to price match to the Sam's Club price because their website doesn't show a model number. How did you guys get Best Buy to price match?

Sam's Club website does have the model number plain as day (see attached)

Has anyone who owns one tried playing games on it? I hear this and the UT50 have atrocious lag but I can't figure out why the ST50 would be such a big difference for input lag.

The people who got the ST30 last year at BB for $600 I hate you. Such a steal.
Why would a plasma have lag? That's an LCD thing. Panny plasmas have a game mode even. I play games on my '08 Panny plasma all the time, there's NO lag.

Huh, I think I didn't see it at all because it's out of stock. Thanks for the attachment, I'll use that to get BB to price match.

Only LCDs lag. Plasma don't and if you need more HDMI ports get a hdmi switchbox from monoprice for cheap

In terms of picture quality, Plasma still better right? the down sides are that they don't last as long and use more power?

I wished that Amazon do not charge sale tax in California. Tax kills a lot of deals from Amazon, at least to me. CA gov is ripping consumer off.

Top of the line vs. top of the line, yes. No proof they don't last as long but they'll likely last as long as a CRT at this point and they use marginally more power year over year ($30 vs. $50 if you want some average numbers.)

Tell me. If only LCD's lag then why would this TV even have a game mode? And why are the MLG pros using LED computer monitors? Hmmm?

Lot's of misinformation is being posted here. If you think input lag is only for LCD's then you probably aren't that serious about games anyway. Look it up.

Again, 100% NOT TRUE. What do you think gaming computer monitors are?

Slugbom, your the only one spouting misinformation, samijubal and banditking are correct, plasma's do not lag, there is image retention in plasma's but thats not the same thing as lag.

You must be the most clueless person ever. LED is LCD, the only difference is the backlight. Plasmas do not lag. The game mode is to bypass upconversion. I hope you're not trying to say people are choosing LED monitors over plasmas, there's no such thing as a plasma monitor, never has been.

The Sam's Club model is TC-50PU54, the Best Buy model is TC-P50U50. Technically, they are the same TV but Best Buy may refuse to PM. My Best Buy did not PM since they gave me the same excuse, model number not available on online.

Since I knew the two model numbers were different, I didn't pursue it any further. However, YMMV.

Just got mine today! Picture quality is BEAUTIFUL with blu-ray films. Still tweaking for gaming, but looks awesome regardless. Good buy! No lag while playing games either haha. Don't know where that rumor came from. In game mode or not. You don't even HAVE to use game mode. It is just some screen color/sharpness tweaking presets.

Very nice of them to use different model number for the same TV, to prevent customers getting the same price elsewhere MadBig Grin
