Panasonic Viera TC-P50VT20 review: Panasonic Viera TC-P50VT20


Panasonic Viera TC-P50VT20

Superior black-level performance and excellent shadow detail; accurate primary colors in THX mode; great color saturation; effective antireflective screen; reproduces 1080p/24 cadence properly; VieraCast provides access to select Internet services and...

Relatively expensive; last year's Panasonic plasmas lost black-level performance over relatively short periods of time; non-adjustable grayscale in THX mode; some artifacts in 1080p/24 mode; fewer streaming services and apps than the competition; uses...

With both 2D and 3D sources, Panasonic's flagship TC-PVT20/25 series plasma TV delivers outstanding overall picture quality.

Panasonic TC-P50VT20 3D Plasma HDTV Review - Intro


The Panasonic TC-P50VT20 is the second 3D HDTV to hit the scene, but it's actually showing up with all the necessary gear: it's currently being offered as a bundle with a set of 3D glasses and a 3D-capable Blu-ray player. While this bundle makes the...

The Panasonic TC-P50VT20 didn't exactly wow us. It's picture quality was average, its online content was fairly sparse, and it's 3D experience doesn't seem particularly robust. Don't get us wrong: we're grateful you can actually watch 3D on it at...

Panasonic TC-P50VT20


You cannot pretend anymore. Your television is completely out of date, even if you just bought it in December of last year. Why? Because 3D home televisions are finally here. The TC-P50VT20 is the first 3D model from Panasonic, and it manages to...

Panasonic Viera TX-P50VT20B 50in Plasma 3D TV


It's Panasonic's first 3D TV and as far as televisions go, it's pretty awesome.

Good 3D performance, with almost no crosstalk ; Freeview/Freesat HD tuners included ; Unbeatable black levels

Doesn't side-step the usual 3D issues ; Weak 3D glasses design ; No 2D-to-3D conversion

The P50VT20B is comfortably the finest mainstream TV Panasonic has ever produced, and one of the finest TVs ever seen period. And that's even before taking its 3D talents into account.

Panasonic TX-P50VT20 review


The Panasonic TX-P50VT20 is a superb TV in its own right, so you can afford to regard 3D as a bonus

Outstanding ability with 3D ; fine 2D ability, with some mild reservations ; comprehensive specification

3D glasses aren’t especially comfortable ; sound’s not great ; Sony's new HX903 is even better

An excellent TV: the only thing to count against it is the presence of Sony’s new, and even better, rival

Does plasma still cut the visual mustard? Panasonic proves it does

An excellent TV that shows plasma still has a place in this 3D world

Panasonic TX-P50VT20 review


The 3D Panasonic VT20 is here, and it doesn't disappoint

Smooth, involving 3D ; Excellent 2D picture ; Freeview HD/Freesat tuners ; DNLA networking ; Calibration options

3D glasses uncomfortable ; Average audio ; Clunky user interface ; Ad-hobbled Freeview HD EPG ; Intelligent Frame Creation artefacts

The Panasonic VT20 is Panasonic's first 3D TV, and it's a belter.

Panasonic TX-P50VT20 review


Panasonic is preparing to unveil its brand new family of 3D televisions in the coming weeks. The 50in TX-P50VT20, though, is the last explosion from last year's range, so don't expect there to be unlimited supplies available.

Is Plasma a dying breed? Well it wouldn’t be the first time market forces have seen the superior technology lose out, but we hope there’ll be a place in the future for plasma technology. The quality of the 3D on the Panasonic TX-P50VT20 is stunning, as...
