  1. Okay, firstly I own the vt30, great tv but what on earth is there no independent web browser. They dropped the ball on that one. And still consumers they can implement that tech in the vt30 with an update but they won’t. Because they want u to buy their vt50. Also ppl stop complaining bout the Samsung bezel looks better troll crap. Now Panasonic are looking like them. Stupid right. I bought an Samsung d 8000 strictly b/c it had an web browser. Deeper blacks how black do you want it. Also, consumers please be smart if the developer doesn’t utilize these new ideas in the movies games etc . It will not show . Your wasting your Money. The vt30 is good the vt50 is just an upgrade. Unnecessary upgrade. Thanks be wise.

  2. I hope, the P55VT50 will be available in Germany soon!
