Panasonic TX-P50GT50

Panasonic TX-P42GT50


Panasonic's P50GT50 ‘fills the gap' between the ST50 and VT50s in outstanding fashion.

Panasonic TX-P42GT50


Excellent off-air images, brilliant detail, punchy colours, simple to set up and use

Some rivals do slightly better smart features, but it’s nothing to lose sleep over

A sensational all-rounder, the TX-P42GT50B shows Panasonic has lost none of its plasma magic in 2012
