Expert review by:

Panasonic VIERA TC-P42GT25 42" Plasma TV

 

Think you're priced out of the 3D TV market? Think again. Panasonic's 42-inch plasma TC-P42GT25, the 3D version of their G25 line, is on sale these days for as little as $700 from some retailers and it's not a bad buy at that price.

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

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 Viera TC-P42GT25

 

Panasonic GT25 series information: The review of Panasonic's Viera TC-P42GT25 is based on our experiences with the 50-inch TC-P50GT25 television. According to Panasonic, the GT25 series TVs have identical specifications (save dimensions and weight) and...

Great price ; Excellent 3D, 2D ; THX option for 2D ; Decent backlit remote

No glasses supplied ; No wireless LAN adaptor ; Blah styling

Panasonic's Viera TC-P42GT25 offers an excellent 3D experience at only a fraction of the cost of most comparable 3D sets on the market.

Panasonic Viera TC-P42GT25

 

Panasonic's first 3D TV, the TC-PVT25 series , earned our Editors' Choice award for its 2D picture quality, and in our opinion is currently the best overall TV you can buy. It's expensive, however, so the company decided to release a slightly cheaper...

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.

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

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

Panasonic TC-P50GT25 50" THX 3D Plasma with 2D Conversion First Look

 

At a fairly reasonable $1,700 for the 42" TC-P42GT25 and $2,100 for the 50" TC-P50GT25, you're not exactly going to have to mortgage the house to one-up the Jones in the race for a 3D television.

If Panasonic decided to throw in a couple of pairs of glasses (or decrease the price of the ones they sell), the price of the GT line would be much more attractive. At $1,699.95 for the 42" TC-P42GT25 and $2,099.95 for the 50" TC-P50GT25, the price...

Plasmas have gotten a bum rap in the market for all sorts of nutty reasons. They break when shaken? No, not unless you're talking about dropping them off the delivery truck, or them falling off the wall in an 8.0 trembler. In either case, you can kiss...

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

A scientific, in-depth analysis with side-by-side comparisons

The Panasonic TC-P42GT25 ($1699 MSRP) certainly won’t wow you with a brilliantly sharp picture like some of the more expensive LED-lit LCD televisions. In fact, comparable Samsungs can produce 2x to 3x the contrast ratio. But then, that’s not where...

Panasonic TC-P42GT25 Plasma 3D TV Review

 

In this review of the Panasonic TC-P42GT25 Plasma 3D TV, we will look at the 2D and 3D performance of this HDTV along with all the new features in the Panasonic GT25 series. The GT25 series is the mid-range Plasma 3D TV offering from Panasonic that...

The TC-P42GT25 probably has all the competition scared stiff. While it might not have a fancy cabinet and styling and also have slightly lower specs when it comes to contrast ratio, one thing is abundantly clear from this review of the Panasonic...
