Panasonic VIERA TC-P42GT25 42" Plasma TV

 

Think you're priced out of the 3D TV market? Think again. Panasonic's 42-inch plasma TC-P42GT25, the 3D version of their G25 line, is on sale these days for as little as $700 from some retailers and it's not a bad buy at that price.

Full set of Internet-connected features ; Inexpensive 3D TV

Blacks sometimes too black ; Oversaturated colors

The GT25 has great features for the price, but the image quality issues will deter discerning buyers with a bigger budget.

Panasonic TC-P42GT25

 

The 42-inch Panasonic TC-P42GT25 plasma HDTV delivers solid 2D and 3D imagery at a reasonable price.

Relatively affordable. Very good 2D and 3D picture quality. Deep blacks.

Limited Web apps. Only 3 HDMI ports. Some standard-def image noise.

The TC-P42GT25's menu system is easy to use, and contains a solid selection of picture and audio settings to help you achieve the best possible image and sound experience. The Picture menu offers all the basic settings like Contrast, Brightness, Color...

Panasonic TC-PGT25 review: Panasonic TC-PGT25

 

Superb black-level performance; accurate primary colors in THX mode; great color saturation; effective antireflective screen; uses less power than previous 1080p plasmas; VieraCast provides access to select Internet services and improved customization;...

Cannot properly handle 1080p/24 sources; loses some black-level performance over time; introduces artifacts in 3D mode; fewer streaming services and apps than the competition; uses more power than LCDs; does not include 3D glasses.

Although it does deliver excellent 2D picture quality, the 3D-compatible Panasonic TC-PGT25 series can't match the overall performance of the competition's best plasmas.

Panasonic TC-P42GT25

 

The Panasonic TC-P42GT25 ($1699 MSRP) is a 42-inch plasma TV that displays 3D content (as well as 2D, of course). We're still not entirely sold on 3D TVs, but we're sure that at this point, plasma TVs have the advantage. This is a relatively...

If you're setting up a home theater, the Panasonic TC-P42GT25 has three HDMI ports for newer devices, along with two composite AVs and two component AVs for older devices. The only notable omission here is the lack of an analog audio output

A scientific, in-depth analysis with side-by-side comparisons

The Panasonic TC-P42GT25 ($1699 MSRP) certainly won’t wow you with a brilliantly sharp picture like some of the more expensive LED-lit LCD televisions. In fact, comparable Samsungs can produce 2x to 3x the contrast ratio. But then, that’s not where...

Panasonic TC-P42GT25 Plasma 3D TV Review

 

In this review of the Panasonic TC-P42GT25 Plasma 3D TV, we will look at the 2D and 3D performance of this HDTV along with all the new features in the Panasonic GT25 series. The GT25 series is the mid-range Plasma 3D TV offering from Panasonic that...

The TC-P42GT25 probably has all the competition scared stiff. While it might not have a fancy cabinet and styling and also have slightly lower specs when it comes to contrast ratio, one thing is abundantly clear from this review of the Panasonic...

"10 Red Flashes of Death"

 

Bought the Panasonic because it was priced less than a comparable Sony. Replacement television will be Sony.

Nice picture/adequate sound for the 16 months I've owned the TV. The television was used fairly lightly; it's located in the master bedroom...the big Sony in the media room carries the bulk of the family's television watching.

Lasted 16 months. Pop...10 flashes on the Power LED...no television. Lots of bad experiences with Panasonic Viera televisions are chronicled on the net.

Just amazing!

 

The remote is okay and has all the necessary functions associated with the Display. It's just not a very stylized design, but the red backlight is pretty cool. Viera Cast is a neat feature for owners that don't have an HTPC setup or Modern Game...

Pros ; THX Mode is an instant PRO! The calibration is near perfect ; The screen quality is simply jaw dropping. More so, when viewing Blu-Ray films and playing HD Games. The details are superb, colors and black levels are proper, and no screen lag when...

I have no real CON against this display. Just some minor grievances with Panasonic ; The Shutter Glasses are just too expensive to consider an instant purchase. The Glasses should have been included with the package. It makes it seem like Panasonic...

Contacted Panasonic for return/fix after 2 weeks and was just given the run around. Customer service is horrible. If you want to get into 3D for cheap, I don't think you can find a cheaper tv than this. But if you purchase it, i think you will be...

3D. Online capabilities. Remote lights up. Cheap. Not much else

1 HDMI port doesn't work (out of 3). Another HDMI port has audio sync issues, but that could be related to the tv in general. USB does not work so don't bother trying to read picture files or videos from a flash drive ; Viera Cast is slow to respond. I...
