Panasonic Viera TH-PX80U review: Panasonic Viera TH-PX80U

 

Relatively inexpensive; produces a deep shade of black; accurate initial color temperature; solid connectivity with three HDMI inputs; handsome, understated exterior.

Color decoding accentuates red; inaccurate primary color of green; ineffective noise reduction.

Panasonic's TH-42PX80U 42-inch plasma sets the picture quality-to-value standard for entry-level plasma TVs.

Panasonic Viera TH-42PX80U

 

The Panasonic Viera TH-42PX80U keeps it simple for those needing a good TV without all the bells and whistles. The design is pretty straight forward. It is mostly black with nothing to really gawk over. A panel below the screen opens to reveal some...

Panasonic has been known to make some of the best plasma TVs, and the TH-42PX80U shows us why.

Panasonic TH-42PX80 review

 

A superb 42 inch talent from Panasonic

Outstanding pictures ; Good connectivity ; Price

HDMIs not v1.3 ; Colours could be more vibrant ; Occasional orange tone to rich reds

Panasonic’s seemingly unstoppable plasma roll continues apace with this stunner despite LCD’s best efforts

Panasonic TH-37PX80 review

 

Quite dull on the outside, but this plasma has a lot to offer within

Terrific picture quality ; good connectivity

HDMIs not v1.3 ; non-vibrant colours

The 37PX80 proves that plasma is anything but a dying technology, giving LCD a run for its money

Panasonic Viera TH-37PX80B review

 

Plasma TVs tend to be bigger and more expensive than LCD TVs, but this one's price and size put it in direct competition with the LCD TVs here.

This is the kind of TV people will move house to accommodate – available at a bargain price

An excellent big screen with big-name cachet for under a grand. What else do you want?

Panasonic TH-37PX80B 37in Plasma TV

 

It's one of Panasonic's latest plasma TVs, so can we expect great things for its keen price?

If you can take your LCD blinkers off for a minute, you'll find that the Panasonic 37PX80B is a startlingly good plasma TV for what is, in the circumstances, a crackingly competitive price.
