Panasonic Viera TX-P46Z1 review

 

The Panasonic Viera TX-P46Z1's performance is generally very good, but, given the set's price, we can't easily forgive the few picture-quality issues it has. We like the wireless connectivity, though, and we can't see any problems in using it in most...

Wireless hi-def video transmission is awesome and far more reliable than we expected ; Good sound ; Picture quality is impressive for the most part

To afford it, you'll probably have to sell some children, flog your car and maybe auction some organs ; Styling is confused and we hate the black parts of the bezel

In terms of alternatives, see if you can get a Pioneer Kuro PDP-LX5090. Although these are no longer being made, there's still some knocking around. You'll save about £2,000, get 4 inches more screen real estate, and a better all-round picture. If...

Panasonic's new flagship range is mightily expensive but appears formidably equipped – including wireless video streaming straight out of the box

Desirable and capable, but that price is a hurdle – rivals offer either a better picture or more screen estate for the money

Panasonic Viera TX-P46Z1 46in Plasma TV

 

The Panasonic Viera TX-P46Z1 is a truly stunning plasma TV, but comes at a price.

The P46Z1 is a truly stunning television, combining cutting edge design and technology with professional-grade AV standards. To see one in action is to desperately want to own one.

As a wireless TV, this really fits the bill. Whether it's worth the money is questionable

Really, truly wireless ; fine facility with motion, black tones and contrasts ; half-decent sound

Eye-wateringly expensive relative to overall performance ; not as slim as it pretends

Panasonic Viera TX-P54Z1E

 

Looking for a wafer-thin, top -quality, big screen Plasma TV with wireless capabilities? Then look no further – the Panasonic Viera TX-P54Z1E which was released in the UK during the latter half of last year, is still one of the best out there…………

OK, there’s no doubting that the Panasonic Viera TX-P54Z1E is an extremely beautiful piece of kit and has performance levels up there with the best we have seen at Shopexplorer. It’s easy to operate, comes packed with loads of good quality features and...

Panasonic TX-P46Z1B wireless plasma TV

 

The UK's first wireless plasma gets a seeing to

Terrifically dynamic pictures thanks to its 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio and 600Hz processing, wireless connections box, VieraCast internet portal, 4x HDMI connections

It ain't cheap, wireless transmitter and receiver are a bit unsightly, VieraCast still has limited partners

Wireless' is a slight misnomer of course, since you'll still need to plug it into the mains, but that detail aside, the rest of its connectivity options reside in a separate box which then transmits picture and sound to the screen. This can be done...

Panasonic TX-P46Z1B wireless plasma TV

 

This is a screen that has everything - skinny good looks, an astoundingly dynamic picture with super clear sharpness and resolution, plus a full array of connections that you can tuck away neatly out of sight thanks to its wireless connection system.

Stunningly good pictures thanks to its 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio and 600Hz processing, wireless connections box, VieraCast internet portal, 4x HDMI connections

VieraCast still has limited partners, wireless transmission boxes could have been neater, and it has a hefty price tag

Panasonic TX-P54Z1B Full HD 1920x1080p Plasma display with Wireless HDMI capability.

 

At the top of Panasonic's range of 2009 model Plasma displays sits the Z1 series. Available in both 46Â" and 54Â" versions (we're reviewing the latter, for what it's worth), these displays are luxuriously styled and almost unfathomably thin. Like the...

NeoPDP contrast performance and black level are excellent, Extensive connectivity options - one of few displays to include built-in Satellite tuner, Calibrated THX mode has excellent Greyscale accuracy, Colour accuracy in THX mode is also excellent,...

No colour management system means that colours are just short of perfect, Standard-def video processing still has some performance holes (NOTE: this is irrelevant if an Upscaling DVD player or AV receiver is used), Other than aesthetics and Wireless...

Excellent
