Panasonic TX-P42GT60 review

 

Ultra HD and OLED are the current buzzwords in AV, and plasma TV technology feels even more besieged than ever before, with confirmation from Panasonic that its 2013 range of plasma screens will be its last. Thankfully, it's come out with all guns...

Stellar, film-friendly 2D and 3D picture quality; excellent Smart TV interface

Minor motion issues; slightly bland design; not enough video streaming services currently available

Panasonic's first plasma TV of 2013 is so good it's scary.

Groundbreaking 2D and 3D picture quality ; Brilliantly thought through and straightforward interface ; Good multimedia support

Touch Pen feature is silly ; Missing LoveFilm and some TV catch-up services ; Design is just so-so

Likely more interesting to AV enthusiasts are the P42GT60’s endorsements by both the THX and Imaging Science Foundation (ISF) organisations – endorsements earned by both the quality and accuracy of the images the P42GT60 can deliver and the amount of...

The Panasonic TX-P42GT60B TV shows that reports of plasma's demise have been greatly exaggerated

Picture quality from any and every source ; Ergonomics ; Smart interface

Uninspiring styling ; Unyielding sound ; Nonsensical Touch Pen ; Only 3 HDMI imputs
