Panasonic TX-P42S30B review

 

If you can live with its limitations, this plasma is still a decent budget TV

Good contrast ; Fair value ; Very natural pictures with no motion blur

Currently underwhelming online service ; Pictures lack brightness ; Chunky design

It's fair to say that Panasonic has had a pretty good year, thanks predominantly to the critical and commercial success of its latest 3D plasma models.

Although the P42S30 doesn't have 3D or use Panasonic's top-level plasma technology, it's still a great value TV.

Brilliantly affordable ; Good all-round picture quality ; No motion blur and wide viewing angle support

Not the latest Panasonic panel technology ; Currently limited online features ; Uninspiring design

While the P42S30 isn’t as stand-out brilliant as so many other TVs in Panasonic’s 2011 range, if you can run it in a reasonably low-light environment it’s still better than you've a right to expect for its money.

If I can set this up on my own, then it's got to be simple, looks great and really cheap too
