Panasonic's plasmas have been hugely impressive this year, with the ZT65 , VT65 and GT60 all delivering gorgeously-deep black levels, along with rich and natural colours that make movie watching a pleasure on these sets. The Panasonic TX-P42ST60 slips...

Excellent black levels; Rich, natural colours; Good upscaling; Decent 3D performance; Premium styling.

Smart TV system could do with more premium apps; Not as suitable as some LED models for bright room viewing.

The Panasonic TX-P42ST60 is a superb TV for the money. Its picture performance puts many sets costing twice as much to shame thanks to its excellent colour handling and deep black levels. It also has decent sound quality, easy to use menus and a...

There's life in the old plasma TV yet

Can Panasonic still deliver plasma class at a cheaper price point?

Stunning black level response ; Good value ; Excellent Smart TV interface

Picture quality reduced by high levels of ambient light ; Surprisingly high input lag ; 3D motion judder

And whatever else you do, avoid the Dynamic preset and turn off the Ambient sensor if you know what’s good for you (though this advice applies to any Panasonic plasma set, actually).
