Panasonic TX-P42GT20B review

 

Panasonic takes 3D plasma to a smaller level, and throws in its first 2D to 3D upscaling

Nearly crosstalk-free 3D pictures ; Good black level response ; Decent 2D to 3D conversion ; Good price for a 3D TV

Contrast not as good as the VT20 series ; One or two colour tone issues ; 3D images lack punch

There's no doubt that the P42GT20 marks a definite step down in quality from the sensational P42VT20. So much so where standard definition is concerned, at least, that the extra £300 for the higher-spec model is we'll worth finding if standard def...

Panasonic Viera TX-P42GT20

 

It is not cheap, but when it comes to 3D this plasma television is the best sub-£1,500 set we've seen to date.

3D images are darker than those on LCD screens ; Boring design

The price difference between the Panasonic Viera TX-P42GT20 and the 42-inch VT20 model is currently around £350. The VT20 certainly has better black levels and, for purists, the premium is probably worth it. But, if you can't quite stretch to the...

Consumer review by:

great system!

 

The first TV that was delivered turned out to be faulty- the 3d glasses only sync'd with the screen when we stood up! After a bit of a faff to-ing and fro-ing to the store and phoning customer care, the TV was replaced by a fully working model!
