Panasonic TX-P42GT30 review

 

Extensive spec ; impressive pictures across the board, with contrasts an authentic highlight

3D glasses are a cost option ; takes a little fiddling to bring out its best

Our 2011 TV product of the year. There isn't a TV in its class to match it

Panasonic TX-P42GT30B review

 

No feature has been left unturned by Panasonic's 3D-ready 42-inch plasma HD TV with Freesat HD and Freeview HD

Rich, detailed 2D picture quality ; Freeview HD and Freesat HD ; Clean, crosstalk-free 3D performance ; VIERA Connect IPTV portal

No active shutter 3D glasses supplied ; No side-mounted AV inputs ; No EPG for non-Freesat services

Panasonic TX-P42GT30B

 

Panasonic is among the best when it comes to plasma TVs, with the snappily titled Panasonic TX-P42GT30B offering more features than you'll ever need. This 3D-ready TV measures in at 42 inches, and boast a Full HD image, Freesat HD and Freeview HD. The...

Despite Panasonic's stingyness on the specs front, we still love the Panasonic TX-P42GT30B. It should top the list if you're in the market for a 3D HDTV, and fancy plasma over LED. Panasonic TX-P42GT30B is tagged with Panasonic TX-P42GT30B, Panasonic...

Panasonic TX-P42GT30 42in plasma 3D TV

 

Review With its high contrast Infinite Black Pro panel, net connected features and 3D compatibility Panasonic's new GT30 plasma TV range clearly isn't looking to shortchange buyers. The screens even come with both Freeview HD and Freesat HD tuners, to...

Panasonic TX-P42GT30B

 

Good Picture - especially for realistic looking images for movies (not overblown with colour) - although not perfect (see bad points) Very thin - excellent for wall mounting Good 3D (from original 3D sources)

2d to 3d conversion mediocre at best. No 3D glasses included. Active 3D glasses expensive and cause flicker if room lets in daylight (passive 3D better in my experience, despite theoretical drop in HD quality with this technology - I sit 8ft from a 55"...
