The Good The Panasonic AS530 offers competitive image quality and pricing among its Japanese and Korean peers; Colors are well saturated and skin tones are natural; the design is one of the best out of the Panasonic factory yet; it has excellent off-angle viewing and uniformity.
The Bad Colors, particularly red and yellow, are a little "out" compared with the best at this price; the smart TV system seems clunky and dated but it's brand-new; shadow detail and black levels could be better; no dedicated gaming mode; only two HDMI ports; terrible sound.
The Bottom Line The Panasonic AS530 series LCD ain't no plasma, but it offers attractive design and decent image quality for a budget price.
Yes, it's a 50". Too bad. I remember when Panasonic had 58" plasma's. They ran close to $3000 and were the very best sets on the market. How things have changed (and stayed the same as far as image quality).
