Panasonic TX-P50V20B review

 

I recently stumbled across a 30-year-old article from a trade magazine, which predicted that the domestic TV would become a ‘home-entertainment' hub. Looking at TVs like Panasonic's TX-P50V20B, you have to admit they were right.

Plenty of advanced features; stupendous HD pics

Only one tuner at a time; disappointing SD pics and sound

Panasonic TX-P42V20B review

 

If you want top plasma pictures but aren't fussed about 3D, the P42V20 is the telly for you

Superb picture quality ; Good feature count ; Straightforward operation ; Good multimedia tools

limited USB HDD recording compatibility ; Images not quite as bright as similarly priced LCD sets ; Occasional slight bias towards green

Panasonic's V20 sets deliver most of the premium picture quality features developed for its top-end VT20 3D series without costing as much or limiting you to massive screen sizes. The P42V20 reviewed here, for example, is a 42in model for the...

If you want the picture quality of Panasonic's latest 3D models but don't need 3D, then this 42in plasma television is the answer to your prayers.

If you want the vast majority of the picture quality of Panasonic’s latest 3D models but don’t need 3D, then the P42V20 is the answer to your prayers. It’s an outstanding 42in TV in almost every way, and as such manages to make its £1,160 price look...

Panasonic Viera TX-P42V20B review

 

It's an absolutely stunning TV, but Pansonic's own G20 series televisions have nearly identical image quality and are a fair bit cheaper.

Panasonic TX-P50V20

 

Not cheap, but its considerable achievements make the V20 one of the most desirable TVs around ..

Black level ability, colour

SD pictures a 'soft' for some

The TX-P50V20 slugs it out with the flagship VT20 toe to toe, matching it in every respect. With stunning High Definition and Standard definition picture performance, the TX-P50V20 is one of the best all round TV we have come across.

The colour of the surround is excellent much better than the usual black which is very reflective.

Panasonic TX-P42V20

 

Fantastic depth, picture movement and sharpness.

Although the set up is easy, the other features are quite tricky and a false move can leave you without a channel for half and hour whilst you try and re-set!

Panasonic TX-P42V20

 

Excellent picture quality and easy to use. Design is very stylish and is finished in a "grey/silver metal" effect. I did a lot of research prior to this purchase and this television lives up to my expectations. Sound could be better, but that is being...

Sound could be better, if you were being really critical.
