One Sheet of Glass Design

Beautiful, elegant, and functional -- a single pane of glass covers the entire front of the television, including the bezel. This design reduces or eliminates the "halo" effect that can occur around lettering and logos with traditional 3-pane designs

Amazing color reproduction

The incredible black reproduction of a Panasonic High-Definition Plasma TV results in impressive contrast and beautiful, natural colors. So you'll get warm, accurate skin tones, gorgeous greens, breathtaking blues and vivid reds. For color that's as rich and bold as life itself, look to a Panasonic Plasma TV.

Consistent brightness from any angle

A Panasonic Plasma combines anti-glare and anti-reflection technology with the natural light-emitting properties of plasma, to give you a super-wide viewing range with a crisp, beautiful image from almost any angle.

Smooth, graceful motion

When you're watching sports or movies with fast-motion graphics, you want a TV that can keep up with the action. With over 900 lines of moving picture, self-illuminating plasma displays eliminate afterimages in fast-action scenes. So whether you're watching a sporting event or an action-packed movie, you'll always get the most impressive viewing experience possible.

24p native reproduction

Movies are shot at 24 frames per second. Unfortunately, TVs operating at 60Hz can only refresh 20 times per second, which means they must drop every fifth frame. With its 2008 Viera PZ85, PZ800, and PZ850 models, Panasonic introduces 24p native resolution, which means 24 frame per second movie content is reproduced frame for frame exactly, making for true-to-source smoothness of motion.

1,000,000:1 Contrast

The Panasonic's Real Black system (a pre-discharge suppression system) and improved panel production processes combine to reproduce outstanding blacks with superb contrast. Each image is richly expressive, from bright scense, like scorching desert landscapes, to dark cave scenes. Compare the image produced by conventional HDTV on the left to the Real Black image produced on the right

More Colors

Viera HDTVs support the xvYCC color profile (Extended YCC Colorimetry for Video Applications), or "x.v. color" for short. Standard RGB color space allows the display of a portion of the colors that are viewable to the human eye. The next generation "xvYCC" color space actually offers? an available range of colors that exceeds what human eyes can recognize.
  • Next-generation "xvYCC" color space supports 1.8 times as many colors as existing HDTV signals
  • Lets HDTVs display colors more accurately
  • Enables displays with more natural and vivid colors

deep color eliminates visible color banding

Deep Color

Where x.v. color expands the available range of colors your HDTV can display, Deep Color increases the number of colors your HDTV can display within that range, for smoother transitions from color to color.
  • Lets HDTVs and other displays go from millions of colors to billions of colors
  • Eliminates on-screen color banding, for smooth tonal transitions and subtle gradations between colors
  • Enables increased contrast ratio
  • Can represent many times more shades of gray between black and white.

Connectivity

Viera flat panel HDTVs interact with an array of high-definition devices and services, making it easy for consumers to access and enjoy content as never before. As of 2008, Viera Link is compatible with Onkyo and Yamaha home theater systems.
Videos and stills recorded on SD cards can easily be viewed via the SD slots on Panasonic Blu-Ray Disc players and Viera HDTVs. Viera Link means easy connectivity via HDMI cables. Finally, consumers can easily operate their Blu-Ray Disc players, DVD recorders and home theater systems with a single remote control device.

long life

Long Life

Panasonic plasma panels are rated to last 100,000 hours, which is about 30 years of regular or 11 years of non-stop usage before the brightness of the display is halved.

Get Full HD with Blu-Ray Disc Players

A Panasonic 1080p plasma television is able to render 1920x1080 pixels, but standard DVDs have a resolution of just 720x480. Blu-ray discs output true 1080p High-Definition resolution and have a storage capacity ten times greater than standard DVDs, so no pixel gos to waste.

Customer Reviews:

  • Flicker? What flicker?
    If you can still find this discontinued model, buy it! To probably repeat what others have said here, the 800u PQ is second only the $5000 Pioneer Elite model according to Cnet's ratings. Everything looks great on this TV: Bluray, HD cable, broadcast channels over the QAM tuner, video games, standard definition.

    I'm at the 200 hour mark now, and the "haze" and "dimness" of the THX mode that some have pointed out is already lightening up, giving the most accurate picture I've ever seen on a flat panel display. Also, the flicker issue that some have mentioned occurs when engaging the 48hz rate for 24p bluray sources is also not that big of a deal in my opinion. I've definitely seen it, but it happens so infrequently (in very bright areas like open sky or brightly lit white walls) and even then for such a short period (as long as that shot is displayed) that it's a non-issue for me. Besides, to my eyes, it's hard to see the difference between 48hz and 60hz anyway.

    So do yourself a favor, if you see this or the 50" model, buy it before they are all gone!...more info
  • Wife thought it too big.... until she got into it
    Great picture and given the chance, I'd buy again. Remotes are OK, not easily assimilated into other remotes. Center flip open connection area should be on the side. With a Blue Ray and some kickin Bose speakers, it will wear you out by the end of great action picture.Awesome! Works well over my gas fireplace which was nice. Very clean looking....more info
  • Excellent TV.
    A little information about myself: I've been working in high tech Product Development for about 10 years now. I subscribe to the idea that when technology is done right it becomes indistinguishable from magic. I like to have products that perform very well, and require minimal input from the user. To me, the ideal product will do the basic things very well, and have very few bells and whistles which increase the price, and are seldom used (who has time to tinker with the various equalization curves available on most electronics?).

    I purchased this TV about one month ago, and have been very happy eversince.

    What you'll like:
    1/ excellent delivery - I bought the TV from Amazon, it arrived within 3 days, and the delivery company (Pilot) was professional.
    2/ excellent price - Amazon has a superior business model to Best Buy, and they can afford to sell for less.
    3/ great image - the THX set-up offers an excellent experience, and takes away the calibration guess work. Dramatically superior image when compared to any other setting, and indeed as one of the reviewers mentioned, most other settings seem to generate cartoonish images. THX was not a factor I used in building my short list; however after I started to use the TV, I converted.
    4/ very good sound from the TV's speakers. I have a decent stereo set-up which sounds better - as it should... but the TV's sound is not boxy, and it can fill a big room without getting tiresome. This is especially good for the wife and kid - they can watch (and manage) the TV without turning the amp on.
    5/ modern look - the one sheet of glass design is beautiful, modern, and has an excellent Wife Acceptance Factor.
    6/ good remote, easy to use, balanced.
    7/ excellent playback of digital pictures.
    8/ good number of HDMI ports. You will eventualy need all the ports you have on the TV - don't buy a TV that doesn't have at least 3 HDMI ports.

    This TV is not for you if:

    1/ you want high contrast. If this is the case, buy an LCD.
    2/ you have the money to buy the Kuro Elite. The Pioneer will give you a better image. I saw a demo of both at Bay Bloor Radio in Toronto, and the Pioneer was in a different class......more info
  • Great TV but no white glove delivery
    Though I originally wanted the 42" model of the 800 series as it was going in a room that wasn't very large; the 46" was $300 cheaper!? It arrived before the estimated delivery date but when Pilot shipping called to set up a time for delivery I was told that they couldn't do the "white glove service" as there was only one guy available to make the delivery. Consequently I helped the guy take it off the truck and carry it in the house (not an easy task on my part as I am recovering from a back injury). That being said, the delivery person was very cordial and did help me to unpack it and set it up on the stand.

    Onto the TV...I had been researching flat panels for about the last 3 years in Consumer Reports and online and had pretty much decided on a plasma since I watch so many DVDs from the library and wanted the best possible picture for movies. I further narrowed it to Panasonic based on past performance and the brand reputation for reliability. I wasn't dissappointed in the TH-46PZ800U; the picture is very realistic and the THX setting is a great overall calibration for various sources, but is especially appealling for watching movies. Unlike the sometimes overly bright LCD screens, the picture is far more natural. There are still many settings I'd like to experiment with, but out of the box and set to THX is a great place to start. It does have a bit of glare on the glass screen so I would not recommend it for very bright rooms. But if you want the best picture for the money this TV is the way to go!...more info
  • Fantastic Plasma
    This is a great Plasma TV. Only two things keep it from getting 5* is when in 4:3 mode the lines on either side are grey instead of black. You do get used to it, but, why they didn't make them black is beyond me.
    The other minor nuisance is the reflection. Any light in front of the TV is definitely reflected on the screen.
    However, I'm going to take care of the reflection problem by getting a double arm mount cantilevered wall mount which has side to side and up and down tilt. This will take care of the reflection problem.
    Picture quality is fantastic!! You really get lost in the movies as they appear so real. Very black blacks. Highly adjustable controls so you're sure to get a picture that suits you.
    Oh, and please, whatever you do, get a professional to calibrate this TV for you or else you're not getting the full benefit of this great Plasma TV....more info
  • Beautiful Picture
    When I first received my tv (from NewEgg), I was very disappointed with the THX settings that everyone seemed to rave about. The image was much darker than my friends and I consider acceptable (even in a dark room). After doing a lot of concerned reading in the AVS forum, I settled on the Custom setting and am finally getting what I consider to be a beautiful and natural picture. I think my viewing style lies in the middle of the die-hard-accuracy camp and the high-contrast (LCD) viewers. From my perspective, the colors on this tv are now rich, natural and a pleasure to view! Blue Ray material looks awesome and regular def programming looks surprisingly good (but make sure to output 480i (not 480p) from your cable box and let the tv upsample). One last point is that the picture seems to improve over time - I'm at three weeks (roughly 3-4hrs per day), and I'm more and more pleased every day....more info
  • Amazing TV - Zero buyers remorse.
    Like many, I spent a few weeks agonizing over which TV to purchase. I finally settled on this one and I could not be happier. I have zero buyers remorse over my purchase. It has an amazing picture and does what it is supposed to do with out any fault.

    I have not used the built-in speakers, but if you are buying a large, flat screen TV like this, then you need to be purchasing a surround sound receiver anyway.

    The display is crisp and clear. Black levels as dark as night. Contrast providing an amazing rainbow of colors.

    If you find a good deal on this TV, do not hesitate. You will be satisfied with your purchase....more info
  • Panasonic Fan
    I purchased the Panasonic 46PZ800U back in Nov '08 and I have enjoyed every minute of it. I have been a fan of Panasonic for several years and happy to say I have never been disappointed with any of their products (I have owned about 3 Panasonic TVS in my lifetime). The colors are fabulous, especially in THX Mode. Put your TV in THX mode and your work is done. The THX takes the guess work of what the right colors should be. You may have to make minor adjustments (depending on preference)but otherwise nothing else needs to be done. The TV also offers "game mode", "standard mode" etc. I tried the standard, but I realized that the adjustments that I were making were similar to THX mode (so wasted my time there).

    I have only one issue, but has nothing to do with the product, but with the "white glove delivery" services. The delivery service was wonderful, they actually delivered the TV several days earlier than scheduled (they called and confirm and picked a date that was convenient for me). As part of the "white glove delivery" they are supposed to set up your TV in your location (just setting up the swivel stand w/your TV and connecting the cable to your TV). If I did not stop them they would have walked out without doing that service. For some people that may not matter, because you are not paying extra for it.

    This size is hard to find because Panasonic is not making this model anymore, but if the 46 is good, can't imagine that the 50 is bad. I understand the PZ850u are similar in style and feature. Overall anything Panasonic is worth looking at....more info
  • Great TV
    I bought this TV for my birthday and have been very pleased. I used to work for a retailer and always preferred plasma's over LCD simply because of the quality colors. This TV is amazing, THX Mode made it easier to set up. Would recommend running the plasma break-in DVD as well....more info
  • Bad Mutha TV in yo FACE!!!
    First off, the delivery service was super. The guys from Pilot brought the unit into my 2nd story living room. They then held the TV while in stalled the wall mount brackets, then held the tv IN THE AIR while I attached the cables. Those guys were awesome, considerate (they offered to take their shoes off) and certainly went above and beyond my expectations.
    The TV is... ridiculous. It's pretty darn huge when sitting 8' away. The picture is spectacular for sports. THX is the bomb-diggity for watching everything. Colors look real, images look real. LCD images, to me, looks a little cartoonie, but this plasma is spot on.
    I have a PS3 hooked up to it, and the gaming is the sick nasty ridonklaous stuff you dream about.
    Why not get this tv? It's a bit more expensive than others, but the quality is killer.
    The screen smudges easily, but why are you touching the screen anyway?
    Computer input is average, but streaming netflix movies look pretty good.
    Hurray Awesome TV and Killer Service!...more info
  • Wonderful Picture Quality. THX excellence!
    This is one great looking TV. I bought this just before Black Friday as a package deal with the DMP-BD35K for $1400 shipped. I am so glad I have both this and the Panny Blu-Ray player as they are both top-notch A/V units. I'll get into some things I like about the TV...

    - Menu system is easy to navigate and has nice options.
    - I haven't watched a calibration Blu-Ray disc yet to test the TV, but THX setting looks pretty darn close to calibrated. Nice to not have to worry about all those other confusing picture settings or check AVS forums to see if someone found optimal values. Just enable 'THX' from the picture menu and you're all set.
    - TV is lightning fast for gaming. 'Game' picture setting livens up the picture whereas 'Cinema' (aka THX) would not be ideal. For watching HD-DVDs on my 360, I can just switch the picture setting back to 'Cinema'.
    - Offers 'Size 1' or 'Size 2' for HDMI inputs. Basically Size 2 will not crop any pixels from the input of 1920x1080. This allows all the pixel information to be displayed and usually works well on most quality components. If there is junk at the corners of the screen, use Size 1 to crop some of the pixels to display a clean image.
    - Great TV for HTPC. PC input is pretty clear even though it's not at 1920x1080 (or even close). Unlike my Sony RPLCD, which really annoyed me, there's no messy picture geometry. Everything is nice and square on the screen. DVI-HDMI vs. VGA input for PC shows no noticeable difference @ 1280x1024.
    - Viera Link is a nice feature although I don't use it as I have a Harmony remote.
    - 4 HDMI inputs are plenty. One of them on the front makes connecting my Vixia HV30 camcorder a snap.
    - Does not get too hot. Has an array of cooling fans along the top on the back of the set, but they're not loud.
    - Swivel base is nice, but I don't need that as my entertainment cabinet has a swivel base already.
    - Set is very attractive with glass screen and gloss black finish. Note: be very careful when cleaning or handling the glass. It has an anti-glare coating on it. I am reluctant to use Stoner's Invisible Glass cleaner on it even though it's the best glass cleaner out there IMO. I nearly chucked my cat across the room when she wanted to use the screen as a scratching post!
    - Switching inputs is fast. Changing cable channels are fast too.
    Viewing angles are really wide. Wide enough for anyone's needs.

    Here are some things I didn't like...

    - Major drawback IMO. To my knowledge, there is no way for user to update firmware. The manual doesn't mention using the SD slot, so I'm assuming only the service center can do it if there even is an update ever available.
    - Set is heavy, so be careful. This is inherent of plasmas though. make sure it's on a level base because with the glass screen it's slightly front-heavy.
    - While the TV doesn't get burning hot to the touch, it will make a medium-sized room noticably warmer. It's important to keep it well-ventilated especially when near a big and hot receiver like an Onkyo 606.
    - While the anti-glare coating on the glass is nice, I'm really freaked out about damaging it with cleaners. The manual says to only use soap diluted 100x in water. Seems kinda pointless to clean then. There was someone on AVS forums who talked of damaging the coating and the viewing was affected.
    - Optical output (there's no input) only does 2ch PCM. Good thing I'm buying an upgraded receiver. I'm outputting cable TV from optical and only getting Pro Logic II on HD sources.
    - 48Hz setting for 24p input is a joke. The flicker from that low of a refresh rate is definitely noticeable although probably won't make your eyes sore. What was Panasonic thinking when they decided on 48Hz vs., say, anything over 60?!?! I leave that setting on 60Hz and it looks just fine to me. Maybe they'll come out with a fix for it. There's talk over at AVS forums about it.
    - PC resolution will be best at 1280x1024. That's a long way from 1920x1080 - something that a 1080p LCD display probably wouldn't have a problem with.
    - I am still scared of burn-in. Kind of annoying when you have to keep in your mind that something can't be on the screen for too long.
    - Plasma sets use allot more wattage than LCDs. With this TV displaying such a beautiful picture, I want to sit on the couch for hours, which is really going to hurt my pocket every month. Plus, my huge battery backup (which kept my Sony RPLCD alive for 5min during an outage so it can properly shut down) will not even stay working with this TV plugged into it and AC voltage available. This TV draws way too much power for it.

    All in all, the picture quality on this set more than makes up for the lack of firmware upgradability or and of the other dislikes I mentioned. I was all set to get the Sammy A650 or LG 47LG70 for Black Friday, but I know this set looks way better than either. The PQ will really blow you away. This set will want to have you on the couch for hours so set aside some more $$ for your power bill....more info

  • Panasonic Viera TH-46PZ800U
    The Panasonic Viera TH-46PZ800U has proven to be everything advertised, a quality plasma HDTV option. This set arrived from Amazon in perfect condition, the white glove option worked perfect. The only glitch in the process was my lack of having ordered a HDMI cable from which to connect my Dish network to the HDTV (a necessity). The swivel base makes access to the back of the TV very easy. I would highly recommend this product!...more info
  • Wow !!! Definitely worth the wait
    The Panasonic Viera TH-46PZ800U has proven to be everything CNET claimed it was and more. It's not too big and doesn't overpower the room with its size. I found the 42" a touch small and the 50 " was just too big. I purchased from Amazon in Mid-November and the white glove service is worth it. As to to picture quality, I will agree with the majority of users, at around 200 hours of time, there was a definite improvement in the picture, not that the picture wasn't eye popping in its sharpness before. The THX mode is where it stays and I have no problems whatsover with the picture being too dark. I added the Panasonic BD35 Blu-Ray player and couldn't be more happy. Running everything through an Onkyo 606.1 receiver including the DirectTV dish feed and wondering what will be next. (FYI - Direct TV is X-mitting some channels in 1080P). Also, Wii looks fantastic and this set is large enough to support the 4 user option in games without shrinking the ind. areas to be teeny-tiny.

    If you can find it, buy it. You won't regret your choice. There is a difference between this set and the lower end models and LCD's available. But, above all, stay within your spending limits....more info

  • Can someone explain?????????
    Have been reading alot of reviews for this television and am about to take the plunge on my first HDTV. Could someone explain why this 46" is more expensive than the 50" 800u? Everything that I can see is the same except for the size. What am I missing and why would a larger TV by the same company with all the same bells and whistles be less?

    Also Best Buy is currently selling this 46" Panasonic Plasma for $1499.00 including free shipping.
