Panasonic Viera TH-46PZ8OU Plasma HDTV Review - Intro

 

The Panasonic TH-46PZ80U is a good example of the pluses and minuses of plasma displays. We were quite impressed by the viewing angle and reproduction of blacks. We were less happy with the poor brightness, and as you turn brightness up you lose color...

The Panasonic TH-46PZ80U offers many of the strengths that we've come to expect from Plasma televisions, including an excellent viewing angle and deep blacks. Colors were a mixed bag, keep the brightness low and you get accurate colors. Turn it up,...

Panasonic TH-42PZ80U Plasma HDTV

 

With the rapidly depleting prices of flat-panel televisions in the current climate, 1080p is quickly becoming both a buzz phrase and a necessary technology to common consumers instead of a strictly enthusiast's tool. The fact that a rash of 32" 1080p...

Panasonic TH-50 PZ 80 E

 

Error-free 24p playback; Impressive motion clarity in 50 Hz mode; Movie-like picture; Very high peak contrast

Blurry 576i picture via HDMI; Not well-suited to daylight viewing; Standard playback of DVD movies evokes occasional line flicker; High power consumption

Typical of plasma flat-panel TVs, Panasonic's TH-50 PZ 80 E shows its strengths best in dark surroundings, where it gives a natural picture representation from all viewing angles and a structured reproduction of dark picture details. On the flip side,...

Panasonic TH-46 PZ 80 E

 

Accurate portrayal of 24p Blu-ray material; Differentiation of dark picture regions is comparable even to top CRT sets; Respectable sound for a flat-panel TV; DVDs and TV pictures in the conventional PAL standard look natural; Effective contrast, at...

Built-in receiver on this European model (denoted by the final 'E' in the model number) is a bit lacking, and cannot handle HDTV pictures at all; Higher operational power consumption than comparable LCD models; Built-in tuner is only suitable for...

This Panasonic is the insider's tip for price-conscious home-theater fans. At budget price, it offers top-class contrast and pure black, excellent HD quality and decent sound. The picture looks natural, and this Panasonic has done away with the typical...
