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...

Panasonic Viera TX-P50VT30 review


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...

Panasonic TX-P50VT30 review


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

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,...

Panasonic TX-P42VT30 review


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...

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

Panasonic Viera VT30 (TX-P55VT30B) review


The 55-inch Panasonic Viera TX-P55VT30B plasma TV doesn't come cheap, but it packs great 2D and 3D pictures, beefy audio, and smashing Internet features into an attractive chassis. It's one of the best TVs you can currently buy.

Excellent contrast performance ; Deep black levels ; Delicate and nuanced colours ; Impressive 3D ; Good Internet features

Pricey ; Annoying Freeview EPG

The Panasonic Viera TX-P55VT30B is certainly expensive, but, other than that, it's difficult to find any faults. With both 2D and 3D content, it delivers fantastically rich and detailed images that have bags of contrast. Add in good sonics and...

Panasonic Viera TX-P42VT30


Panasonic's flagship VT30 TV range is here. And our only complaint is that we want a bigger one...

Mesmerisingly good performance standards ; Practically no crosstalk with 3D ; Huge feature count

It's not cheap for a 42in TV ; Optimised pictures not spectacularly bright ; Some judder with 50Hz PAL

The P42VT30 is another stunning Panasonic TV, with class-leading black level response, wonderful detail resolution and the cleanest 3D picture yet seen. It’s also beautifully built and rich in multimedia features, as well as being reasonable value when...

Panasonic Viera VT30 hands-on test


The Panasonic Viera VT30 range has us very excited. The VT20 line-up that it replaces was superb in its own right, so we're expecting the VT30 range to deliver the best picture quality we've ever seen.

Excellent picture quality ; 3D images could be the best on the market

Slightly boring design ; Horrible 3D glasses ; Viera Connect Internet service is still disappointing

The Panasonic Viera VT30 TVs are likely to be the audiovisual highlights of the year. The VT20 tellies were amazing in their own right, so a few tweaks here and there should enable the VT30 range to win our hearts. The question is whether they can...
