Panasonic's 65-inch TH-65PV500B plasma TV reviewed


With the World Cup set to start in less than two weeks, it's time to extract the catheter, re-prioritize, and go big. Trusted Reviews just posted a giddy review of Panasonic's 65-inch Viera TH-65PV500B plasma TV calling it "one of the very few truly...

Panasonic TH-65PV500 review


Huge. Massive, even.

Displays HD pictures in all their lovely glory

Maybe a bit too big? ; Only one HDMI port

A lovely cinema-sized TV. Perhaps the only way to watch HD, but still very expensive

Panasonic Viera TH-42PV500


LCD televisions have been hogging the limelight recently and it's easy to forget that for all their glory they're only now catching up to the level of...

Superb image quality, HDMI input, high definition

Could do with more in-depth image controls for the tweakers out there

One of the best plasma units we have seen - and good value too

Panasonic TH-65PV500B 65in plasma TV


If you have a living room the size of an aircraft hanger, Panasonic has just the TV for you.

As you’d expect of such an uncompromisingly large TV, the 65PV500B is fully HD Ready, with a native resolution of 1,366 x 768 and compatibility with the required 720p and 1080i formats. In an ideal world we’d have loved the 65PV500B to also take 1080p...

Everything's integrated in this streamlined set: from the single HDMI input to the digital TV tuner. You can even view video footage via the recordable SD card slot

Blessed with more curves than a J.Lo video, the Panasonic combines great looks with a hugely enjoyable picture

Panasonic TH-42PV500A HD plasma television


Panasonic has updated its Viera range of flat panel displays, with the new 42" TH-42PV500A plasma leading the charge.

Outlook At AU$5999, the TH-42PV500A represents good value for a high def plasma that features some impressive specs as well as good looks. The new range of Vieras should win more fans for Panasonic.

Panasonic TH-42PV500


Part of Panasonic's much-heralded Viera range, the 42PV500 looks sensational in its crisp, black, glossy suit - especially if you splurge a bit extra on Panasonic's matching floorstanding cabinet.

Cracking looks, stunning - and unusually source-flexible - picture quality, superb sonics

Slight grid-like artefacts occasionally visible over some backgrounds

"Best purchase in a long while"


Spent 2 months solid researching which TV to buy, LCD or Plasma and went with this choice. Have never regretted it. 2 people from work have also bought it no regrets and a third is also looking to buy. Harvey's tend to give a great buy with 5 years...
