Hallelujah! Panasonic has super-sized its high-end NeoPlasma display. Steve May basks before the glory of a 65in VT30

Dazzlingly detailed 2D hi-def, immersive and crosstalk-free 3D; excellent media streaming

3D spex not the most comfortable; wi-fi isn’t integrated

Overall, though, this is a traffic stopper of a TV. The quality of Panasonic’s VT30 panel and the accompanying picture engine isn’t diminished by the size of the screen beast. Indeed, if anything it’s enhanced, with 3D a spectacular beneficiary. It’s...

The Panasonic TX-P50VT30 sports a 50-inch 3D panel is one of the most advanced plasma TVs on the planet, says its maker.

Superb 2D image quality ; Great media streaming ; Crosstalk-free 3D

No built-in Wi-Fi ; 3D is a little dark ; Expensive

Beautifully built, ambitiously equipped and blessed with a stonking AV performance regardless of your preferred dimension, the TX-P50VT30 is a cut above the majority of highstreet flatscreens. This is a display of legendary finesse. It may be...

This is home cinema heaven. We can spot a blackout-bound plasma screen a mile off, but the backlit remote control in the TX-P50VT30's box – it glows a dark red behind the buttons to delicately help with operation in the dark – is the first clue that...

Colour, contrast, BBC iPlayer, impeccable 3D, involving 2D, audio

3D specs subdue black levels, USB slot positioning

A stunning performer in both 2D and 3D that also makes SD looks as good as possible, and has a decent range of Internet-based features

Is this the best home cinema plasma TV around?

Contrast and black levels ; Freeview HD & Freesat HD ; Smooth, sharp motion ; Upscales SD ; Immaculate 2D & 3D

High price ; 3D images lack brightness ; Inconsistent handling of digital files ; Small buttons on remote ; Some image retention

There's online fun, access to free HD broadcasts and a sumptuous design, but at its core the Panasonic TX-P50VT30B plasma TV is the ideal option for anyone after home cinema-grade AV equipment.

Flagship Panasonic plasma is 3D screen royalty

Overall, this Neoplasma meets our high expectations. It combines wonderful design with best in class 3D and videophile image quality. Intriguingly, this set’s strongest competition doesn’t come from another brand. Its key rival is Panasonic’s own,...

Ever since Pioneer pulled the plug on its highly-rated Kuro line of plasma screens, enthusiasts have been looking for a new hero brand to fill the void. Panasonic has always been the favoured candidate, not only because it has consistently enjoyed...

Beautiful 2D images with vibrant hues and huge contrast, crosstalk-free 3D, content rich IPTV and apps portal, bullet-proof file support and media streaming, elegant design with plush remote control

IFC picture processing can bring unwanted side effects, undeniably expensive, Panasonic’s 3D glasses can proved uncomfortable if worn for prolonged periods

Panasonic’s TV engineers have topped themselves with the astonishing TX-P42VT30. It’s a class leading 3D TV that combines a refined performance with elegant design. Rival screens may be able to challenge the VT30 in individual areas such as design or...

The P55VT30 is the best domestic plasma TV John Archer has ever seen – and believe us, he's seen plenty of 'em

Incredible build ; Stunning cinematic picture quality

Picture lacks a little brightness ; Needs a 3D picture preset ; Judder with 50Hz

Panasonic TX-P42VT30B review


Sophisticated 3D plasma TV with superb performance and extensive multimedia capability

Unrivalled picture performance ; Ships with two pairs of 3D glasses ; Wi-Fi dongle included

Expensive for a 42-inch TV ; Extra contrast filter can make its pictures a little dim ; Some judder with 50Hz video

The TX-P42VT30B is TV made for AV enthusiasts. Its uncompromising spec leaves no stone unturned in its bid for 2D and 3D excellence, it has professional-grade calibration aids and is beautifully built. Its 50Hz judder issue and slightly compromised...

Size does matter. Both my wife and the Swedish au pair tell me this constantly, particularly when it comes to our home cinema.

Dazzlingly detailed 2D hi-def, immersive and crosstalk-free 3D; excellent media streaming

3D spex not the most comfortable; wi-fi isn’t integrated ; Performance: 5/5 ; Design: 4/5 ; Features: 5/5 ; Overall: 5/5
