Panasonic Viera TX-P42GT20

 

It is not cheap, but when it comes to 3D this plasma television is the best sub-£1,500 set we've seen to date.

Panasonic TX-P42GT20 review

 

A smaller 3D screen from Panasonic, this 42 inch plasma is a solid all-rounder and a good starter for those wanting to move to 3D

Great specification ; decent picture performance ; 3D images free from crosstalk

2D picture can be bettered ; 3D images lack a little vibrancy and punch

A competent all-rounder; a good shout for those looking to make the leap to 3D

Panasonic TX-P42GT20B review

 

Panasonic takes 3D plasma to a smaller level, and throws in its first 2D to 3D upscaling

Nearly crosstalk-free 3D pictures ; Good black level response ; Decent 2D to 3D conversion ; Good price for a 3D TV

Contrast not as good as the VT20 series ; One or two colour tone issues ; 3D images lack punch

The jury may still be out on just how badly the public actually wants 3D, but the arrival of a third TV dimension is undoubtedly great news for plasma.

Panasonic GT25 / GT20

 

Panasonic has released their new lower priced 3D plasma-TV called GT25 (in the US) / GT20 (in Europe). The GT series incorporates the Infinite Black panel as well as the new phosphor also used in the high-end VT25/VT20 series. This probably means very...

THX picture quality; Color accuracy; 3D picture quality; Very low phosphor trailing and fast response time

Black level slightly reduced; Inputs pointing towards the back wall; Minor retention; Internet functionality limited

Panasonic’s new GT flat panel TV has much Panasonic’s functionality such as Internet, DLNA, USB and recording (on the EU models). The design is almost identical to the other mid-range 2010 models from Panasonic’s plasma range of TVs but the color of...

Panasonic GT25 Plasma TV Series

 

(Editor's note: This review of the Panasonic GT25 series is based on our hands-on testing and evaluation of the 42-inch TC-P42GT25. According to the manufacturer, the image quality and features should be equivalent for each TV in this model line.)

Inexpensive 3D TV ; Full set of Internet-connected features

Blacks sometimes too black ; Oversaturated colors

The GT25 has great features for the price, but the image quality issues will deter discerning buyers with a bigger budget.

Panasonic TC-P42GT25

 

The 42-inch Panasonic TC-P42GT25 plasma HDTV delivers solid 2D and 3D imagery at a reasonable price.

Relatively affordable. Very good 2D and 3D picture quality. Deep blacks.

Limited Web apps. Only 3 HDMI ports. Some standard-def image noise.

The TC-P42GT25's menu system is easy to use, and contains a solid selection of picture and audio settings to help you achieve the best possible image and sound experience. The Picture menu offers all the basic settings like Contrast, Brightness, Color...

Panasonic TC-PGT25 review: Panasonic TC-PGT25

 

Superb black-level performance; accurate primary colors in THX mode; great color saturation; effective antireflective screen; uses less power than previous 1080p plasmas; VieraCast provides access to select Internet services and improved customization;...

Cannot properly handle 1080p/24 sources; loses some black-level performance over time; introduces artifacts in 3D mode; fewer streaming services and apps than the competition; uses more power than LCDs; does not include 3D glasses.

Although it does deliver excellent 2D picture quality, the 3D-compatible Panasonic TC-PGT25 series can't match the overall performance of the competition's best plasmas.

Panasonic Introduces the GT25 Plasma Line

 

Panasonic's 3D plasmas have met with some fine reviews, but they don't satisfy every need.  They're big, to start with.  That might not be a problem for most, but in ...

Review: Panasonic GT25 Series 3D TV

 

The GT25 has great features for the price, but the image quality issues will deter discerning buyers with a bigger budget.

The GT25 is very much an incremental update to their G25 line of TVs, so the design, remote, port selection, and general user experience are pretty much the same. The initial setup wizard lets you choose the language, switch between home mode and store...

Panasonic TC-P42GT25

 

The Panasonic TC-P42GT25 ($1699 MSRP) is a 42-inch plasma TV that displays 3D content (as well as 2D, of course). We're still not entirely sold on 3D TVs, but we're sure that at this point, plasma TVs have the advantage. This is a relatively...

If you're setting up a home theater, the Panasonic TC-P42GT25 has three HDMI ports for newer devices, along with two composite AVs and two component AVs for older devices. The only notable omission here is the lack of an analog audio output
