Panasonic Viera TC-P42G10 Plasma HDTV

 

Panasonic's current lineup of plasma televisions is remarkably affordable compared with plasma sets of a few years ago. At $31 per diagonal inch, the new TC-P42G10 is far cheaper than even Panasonic envisioned in the caviar days of flat panels.

An Advanced menu includes additional controls. I left most of these in their default settings. The Light setting for Black Level reproduced above white and below black. Size2 on the HD Size control produced the lowest overscan, but as with several...

Panasonic VIERA TH-42PZ800A

 

1080p 42in plasma with a 30,000:1 contrast ratio

Great blacks, excellent contrast, rich accurate colours, good motion handling

Minor noise issues, calibration options lacking

Another great plasma from Panasonic. The TH-42PZ800A produces a great picture with some of the best blacks we've seen; it only suffers from a few niggling issues.

Panasonic TH-42PZ800

 

Yet another fine Panasonic 42in. If you're a fan of the brand, or simply can find a good deal, it's well worth a look

Fine picture, with good contrast and resolution ; strong sound ; extremely comprehensive spec

Only its key rival, the Sony KDL-46W4500, is a little better in some regards, and a fair bit cheaper

Panasonic TH-42PZ800 review

 

First full HD 42in plasma is packed with features, but expensive

Excellent HD pictures ; great operating system ; good connectivity

Price is too high

If HD now takes up most of your TV viewing time, the 42PZ800 is a great performer

Exceptional performance, at a price ..

The TH-42PZ800 is an exceptional flat panel performer that comes at a price. Other Panasonic plasmas come close in performance terms and offer better value for money (especially the 'Freesat' enabled model), but if you want the best ...
