Panasonic TC-P65VT30


For the last couple of years Panasonic's best plasma has been the most highly anticipated TV review on CNET, and 2011 is no exception. The top-of-the-line Panasonic TV-PVT30 series is the most clicked-upon TV on our site and my most asked-for review on...

The Panasonic TC-PVT30 has outstanding overall picture quality, with superior black-level performance, very good shadow detail and accurate color points in THX mode. It can handle 1080p/24 sources and bright rooms well and exhibits the nearly perfect...

The VT30 is very expensive, and last year's Panasonic plasmas lost black-level performance over relatively short periods of time. Its color is not as good as the best current plasmas and it uses significantly more power than LCD TVs.

Superb all-around picture quality, anchored by the deepest plasma black levels of the year, make the Panasonic TC-PVT30 series the best-performing TV we've tested in 2011.

Panasonic TC-P55VT30 Review – 55-inch Plasma HDTV


It wasn't too long ago when Panasonic was lagging way behind the race in the highly competitive TV market. But, with the announcement of its TC-PVT30 series last year, it was party time for Panasonic as it bagged many awards including the Best of the...

It has VIERA Image Viewer which enables you to play slide shows and even play videos in your SD Card using the dedicated slots on the panel. Above all, the panel offers a flurry of connectivity options which include multiple HDMI 1.4 inputs, analog...

Panasonic TC-P65VT30 Review – 65-inch Plasma HDTV


Of all gadgets in the home entertainment category, none has evolved quite dramatically as the television over the decades. The latest revelation by Panasonic reaffirms this statement. It might be gross exaggeration to say that Panasonic VIERA® VT30 is...

The panel also has a new and improved Infinite Black Pro 2 Panel that improves the luminous efficiency while lowering pre-discharge to provide the viewers with more subtle, delicate blacks in both bright and dark environments. It goes without saying...

Panasonic TC-P55VT30


With technology ever improving, it's senseless to spend your hard-earned entertainment budget on a 3D television that is already trumped by a more advanced option. Invest in a top-of-the-line 3D machine. We recommend the Panasonic TC-P55VT30 because it...

A brilliant picture and a 600Hz refresh rate make this TV a solid competitor, even by 2D standards

Only one pair of active 3D glasses is included with this television

This TV will not disappoint even the most 3D-skeptical consumers.

Burn in image in less than 6 months of buying the TV caused by listening to Pandora music, even though Pandora does not have any still images for more than two minutes. Panasonic figured out this was a problem and pulled Pandora from the available...

Picture quality is great

Easy burn-in problems

"Best TV ever!"


This has the best picture quality I have ever seen. Very deep black levels. Easy to use.

should come with 2 pair of 3d glasses

Best Value For The Money!


If you can get the GT31 Bundle from Best Buy, I would buy it over just the GT30. 2 3D glasses, the Skype cam, the wireless card with dungle, and Avatar Bly-ray 3D is well work the little extra. Do the math if you were to buy the parts extra and you...

The picture is very crisp and the colors are vivid. I used my PS3 to watch Avatar 3D, which came in the bundle from BB. If you like this move in 2D then you will love it in 3D. Had to get a special box from Comcast to watch 3D movies OnDemand

The sound is not the greatest. Wonder if the VT with the subwoofer would sound better

Consumer review by:

Great picture very high quality.


LOVE IT. Slim design is very attractive!

Very easy set up - took less than 30 minutes from out of the box to on table top. Outstanding picture in all modes. Have not yet watched a BRDVD and can't wait

The batteries for 3D glasses is different. Also, no directions on what else I may need beside a 3D Blu Ray player to make work. I run all cables through my Denon 1909 receiver, which is not 3D capable

"Simply Superb Television!"


This is my 7th Panasonic plasma and the best. 2D and 3D performance are superb. Wall mounted it really looks great. It is very thin at 1.6" but is not so thin as to be delicate to handle. The menu system is Panasonics best yet and easy to follow. There...

+ 2D and 3D performance are superb

- I don't have any complaints
