I want to get a new 50 inch TV. Looking at maybe a Plasma something like Viera TH-P50X30Z.

Any thoughts on theses. Dont need all the smart TV bells and whistles. Just want a good picture quality in 50inch for around $1500.

Well you won't get anything with an anti-reflective coating on that budget, so I hope you live in a cave.

The 'X' anything = the crappiest panel Panasonic produces each year.

You get what you pay for. On that budget this might be a decent product - LED LCD not plasma

What kind of television do you have now?

Panasonic's plasma model numbers work like this
X: junk, do not buy it
U: bottom end
UT: I think this is a U with 3D
ST: low end
GT: mid end
VT: high end

I think you will have to spend more money unless you have an idea of good picture quality that doesn't match a dedicated videophile's expectations. I advise against buying a 768p plasma like the X.

With that budget you could afford a P50U30Z. It is available for $1600 but is periodically available for $1500 or less.

50U should be able to be purchased for under $1500, get that instead. :-)
