Panasonic TX-P42ST30B review


The P42ST30B is the most affordable Panasonic plasma yet to offer viewing in the third dimension, and in terms of both spec and looks, it is the runt of the brand's 3D plasma range. Its appearance is somewhat unrefined with its grey-green screen,...

Solid picture performance; lack of artefacts with IFC; Viera Connect portal

Drab styling; Freeview EPG issues; 3D specs not supplied

Panasonic TX-P50ST30 - Pocket-lint


Whether or not you've been impressed by 3D enough to have it at home, would you seriously consider buying a big, expensive TV that couldn't flirt with

Freeview HD tuner, great with SD as well as HD, colour, contrast

No home networking or Freesat HD tuner, lacks ultimate hi-def detail, no 3D glasses included

If you can't decide if 3D is for you or not, Panasonic’s latest giant plasma is the ideal starting point. While you save up for 3D specs, the ST30 will wow you with colourful, and sharp images from Blu-ray, Freeview HD and digital files via USB.

Panasonic TX-P50ST30B review


A decent 50-inch 2D plasma TV that can be upgraded to 3D later

Clean, involving 2D images ; Built-in 3D transmitter ; Excellent 3D images ; Clean pictures from all sources ; Viera Connect hub improved ; 2D-3D conversion option

Drab Freeview EPG ; 3D specs cost extra ; Lacks some home cinema settings ; No DLNA streaming

That a 50-inch, 3D-ready plasma TV originally on sale for over £1500 can now be had with over a third off is proof of how short-lived a fillip the third dimension has given TV sales, but there's a big reason why the Panasonic TX-P50ST30B can be had for...

Panasonic TX-P42ST30B review


An ugly, yet affordable 3D plasma capable of delivering very impressive pictures

Effortlessly good 3D images ; Excellent 2D pics ; Viera Connect and multimedia capabilities ; Good build quality

Ugly design ; Lacks a couple of vital manual tweaks ; Horrible Freeview EPG ; Picture tweaks buried in menu system

The Infinite Black Pro-toting TX-P42ST30B is 2011's most affordable active 3D plasma screen. It has been shorn of one or two fancy features that Panasonic reckons the mass market won't feel deprived of, but is still crammed with the latest plasma...

Panasonic TX-P42ST30


Impressive all-round performance, 3D is comfortable, plenty of smart services including BBC iPlayer, Acetrax, detailed, sharp pictures

Typically anaemic flatscreen sound

As good as half price, from its initial release it’s no surprise that this set blows our socks off

Panasonic TX-P50ST30


Strong performance in every area bar sound, the price/screen-size ratio is good

Robust competition from within the family, not the most handsome device

Impeccable big-screen performance at an eye-catching price

Panasonic Viera TX-P50ST30b review


You might expect a 50-inch 3D plasma set from a respected manufacturer to put on a great show. In that regard, however, the Panasonic TX-P50ST30b might disappoint you. Sure, it has all the right features - Wi-Fi, a generous selection of internet feeds,...

Panasonic got a lot right when it designed the TX-P50ST30b. Unfortunately, the image quality wasn't one of those things. The picture isn't awful, but it should be better.

Panasonic TX-P46ST30


Although it's missing a few multimedia features, this is a pleasingly affordable way into Panasonic's 3D plasma range.

Almost crosstalk-free 3D pictures ; Excellent contrast ; Decent price for what's on offer

Some brightness shifting ; No DLNA functionality ; Motion dithering

So long as you don’t mind the P46ST30’s lack of DLNA PC streaming support, the P46ST30 is the most affordable way out there of getting your hands on a satisfyingly large screen equipped with Panasonic’s latest 3D technology. Plus it just so happens to...

Panasonic Viera TX-P50ST30 review


Stunning black levels and useful internet TV functions make this a fantastic mid-range 3DTV, although the next model up is better value.

In every other practical respect, it's an identical set. And even if you might only use one or two of those, it's not a lot of extra money for a TV this expensive already. That makes the GT30 the better buy for most people.
