    This marks my forth Sanyo Plasma TV. My first was a 42" that cost me $1599. That only lasted only one year, but I blamed that on my daughter dropping her end when we got it out of the box. Just in that one year Sanyo 50" Plasma's came down to $999 and I bought another. (I actually bought a LCD to replace my first one but then took it right back to the store after firing it up. LCD TV's cannot hold a candle to Plasma in a quick motion race.) A year later I bought yet another 50" Plasma to use in my den when the price dropped to $799. And just today (another year gone by) I picked up my fourth Sanyo - another 50 incher from Walmart @ $498 bucks - so cheap that I can afford to give this one to my parents for Christmas. As this trend continues there is no sense to buy the top of the line TV because a year later they are obsoleted by price and features. My last one has a USB and PC connection built in. I like the Sanyo and I'll take a 720p Plasma over a 1080p LCD anyday. More pixels doesn't equate to a better experience.

    This is my first big screen TV experience. I really wasn't sure what to expect but I'll share my thoughts. My first concern was would there be that motion blur so many tv's this size have being 600hz. So far, there have been none. I've watched baseball, basketball, racing and havent seen a single thing be blurry. 720p vs 1080p. I've looked at a lot of these while deciding on my purchase. This is the best 720p I've ever seen. Crisp, vibrant picture and colors. The edges are sharp and it looks great...especially in HD. The sound is good but don't expect to be blown away. Mines hooked up to surround, so I use that for movies and games. The inputs are in the back and difficult to get to. That would be my only complaint. If you're using the stand and placing your tv in the corner. Be prepared to move it out a lot if you have things like laptops or USB cords to hook up and unhook. It could have REALLY used a video input on the side or front. I guess if you were hanging it on the wall, it would be a lot easier to access. Overall I love this TV and would recommend it to anyone. 50" plasma for under $700. Can't be beat.

    Pros: Great picture. Great price. 720 dpi is very good high def. If you don't tell your friends I doubt they would be able to tell the difference between the higher res TVs. The sound is OK. I love this TV - especially for the price. Cons: USB port not very useful on the rear of the TV. In fact, there are no front-side jacks at all. I dislike having to toggle through all the inputs (2 tv, 3 hdmi, 3 video, 1 usb, etc.). Like most Plasmas, the screen is quite shiny and reflective so there is some glare. It works best in a dark room.

    I just purchased this tv today. It is a great value and an excellent product. I could not be more satisfied with it. The picture is great, the sound is great, and it has more than enough inputs and features. The only issue i have is with with the dimensions that Walmart has specified under product details. they state that the "product dimensions in inches" are 19x39x57. These are not the dimensions of the product. they are the dimensions of the box that it comes in. the Television itself is (WxHxD) 49x33.2x14.2. i measured a space out and rearranged my living area to accomodate the specified dimenions and they were incorrect. the dimensions i have stated are what is stated on the box itself for the product details. Once again, the product is EXCELLENT! Thank you for taking your time in reading this. i hope it helps.

    I have owned this TV for 11 months now and have had absolutuely no problems. When I saw the the price which was just over $500 with tax for a 50" TV I was simply amazed. The picture is amazing on this thing compared to much higher priced televisions. The picture makes you feel as if you are there it is so clear! The sound is good, and any movie, sports, or games I play are just awesome. Use a decent HDMI cable to get a better quality of sound and more crisp picture. Cons: The TV was heavier than I expected and was also hesitant about hanging it on the wall but did so without any issues at all. The plug ins for your blu-ray, cable, video game consoles, and surround sound (I don't have one yet) are awkward to get to and not the easiest. Overall, I would recommend this television set to anyone that is looking for a great big screen with super picture, that doesn't want to break the bank. It has truly been a pleasure up to now and still look forward to watching it daily.

    I had a 42" Panasonic 720p Plasma. Which I baught from Costco in 2008 for $840.00, before getting this TV. Although not loaded to the rim with features it should more than cover the needs for most, if not all buyers......especialy for $650.00! PROS: Plasma tech, Big beautiful 50" screen(1366x768p....not 1024x768p...FYI once u get past 42" ALL 720p tv's are 1360,1365, or 1366 by 768), comes with base already attached, no signs of burn-in(even in the first few weeks, but take the 100-200 hour break-in time seriously!), ECO key, 3 1.3b HDMI's(accepts signals up to 1080p...FYI the tv will then down convert signal to 720p), 2 component(accepts signals up to 1080p FYI.. again tv will down covert signal to 720p)/(one of which can be set as a 2nd composite imput), PC imput, 1 composite/S-video imput(FYI S-video will overide composite), semi-backlit remote(does not come with batteries), almost perfect black level/shadow detail, little to no noise, great volume(mute holds your volume level), good speakers(although not quite as good as my Panasonic), uses less power and produces less heat than my 42" did!, very good color(once you fiddle with the settings), accepts a 24p signal(via HDMI and 3:2 pulldown),very little color banding, sleep timer goes to 3 hours, very bright(sometimes too bright!),exellent motion(which is normal for plasma!), and makes non HD,HD cable,Blu-ray,DVD,HD DVD, XBOX 360,and my PS3 all look better than ever! CONS: Screen is too glossy(my Panasonic had a anti-glare filter), imputs take a tad too long to change/come on, no numbers in the picture settings menu(which makes it hard to set and/or carry over your settings to other imputs), both red and contrast are a pain to get 100% right on, stereo and coax digital audio out NO optical, skimpy user manual/menu system(figure it out yourself style/typical Sanyo!), no explination for what each aspect ratio setting is for, NO color temp controls(although this tv seems fine without), audyssey volume fuction confusing, and room light sensor doesn't judge light correctly. Other than the few negative things I listed, most of which are not really big deal breakers... this TV is GREAT! A key thing to remember is your tv's only as good as your sorce and you cables. As far as quality, I've never personaly had issues with Sanyo products. In fact Panasonic as of Dec 2009 has owned Sanyo. Even before then Sanyo has had close ties with Panasonic,Sony, and Samsung for many years. Which includes using Panasonic,Sony, and Samsung parts in their products(this tv in piticular uses a Panasonic plasma panel). Of corse someone has to get a lemon(s), but that goes for any product you buy. Nothings 100% for sure, just sheer odds there!

    there is a reason this product has received a 5 star rating so far. its the best size vs value while maintaining excellent quality. I have owned both lcd and plasma tvs and i will never to back to lcd. when you are in the store under those bright flourecent lights, lcd might look good, but try watching your favorite movie or tv show in the dark at home with the lights off.....PLASMA GIVE THE BEST CONTRAST RATIO. This tv is the best i have owned without having to spend a ton of money. The previous review is right, your friends will not be able to tell its not 1080. HD looks amazing, blacks are dark and with excellent detail. 50" is the perfect size for most living rooms. lots of connections and the color is perfect. I will own this tv for a long time.

    It took time to convince my husband to agree to get this brand because it is an "off-brand" but with the warranty offered by walmart he agreed with the comforting thought that if anything went wrong it would be nothing coming out of our pocket. So far the 50' PLASMA has been AMAZING addition to our room, the picture quality is great. As far as sound, as long as you don't crank the volume past 36 your fine, but if you go past that the sound becomes very distorted. We don't have any problems with it because we just use our surround sound. Plenty of inputs for your electronic needs. Remote is user friendly. Easy set-up guide.Switching inputs has a couple second delay, but nothing major. The base is sturdy. The tv is heavy!!!! GREAT TV!! GREAT PRICE!!

    I've owned this TV for approx 11 months. I always wait for some time before I review any product because I don't always trust reviews made a few weeks after purchase. This TV has performed great. After some minor adjustment, the picture is fantastic with NO blurring or artifacting and the sound is great also. This only negative comment would be it is to heavy for me to handle by myself. Overall its a Great TV and I highly recommend it.

    I purchased this tv on 8/15/09, the tv picture went out on 4/30/10. Sanyo advised me to put the tv in the shop they choose for warranty repair, which I did. As of todays date (6/09/10) I have not received my tv back and all I get is excuses from sanyo customer service. I even spoke to a supervisor about how long the tv has been in the shop and he was even more insensitive and incompetent. Each time he promised a return call with the status, I had to call him back because he never returned the call. Not to mention that this tv did not make it though 1 year of service without a breakdown. I am REALLY sorry I purchased a sanyo tv. I see why sanyo is at the bottom of the list in electronics. The product is of poor quality and the customer service is even worse. If you are considering purchasing this tv...DON'T!!!
