Panasonic Viera TH-PZ85U review: Panasonic Viera TH-PZ85U

 

Panasonic Viera TH-PZ85U

The Panasonic TH-46PZ85U can produce one of the deepest shades of black we've ever tested; it has punchy color; a relatively effective antireflective screen; and sleek styling.

Poor noise reduction; less-accurate primary colors; fewer picture controls than many HDTVs.

A couple of issues keep its picture out of the top tier, but excellent black-level performance still makes the Panasonic TH-46PZ85U plasma TV stand out from the pack.

Panasonic TH-42 PZ 85 E

 

The Panasonic gives sharp images at full HD resolution., Deep black and neutral colors make for a great picture., Even 24p format is beautifully presented

Standard PAL (576i) via HDMI is blurry and flickers a little., Fine details are missing from TV pictures., The sound is a bit feeble - Panasonic can do better

Panasonic Viera TH-42PZ85 42in Plasma TV

 

Panasonic strikes again with another great 42in plasma TV.

The 42PZ85 is yet another hugely accomplished Full HD 42in plasma TV from Panasonic. And as such it's another potentially lucrative string to Panasonic's bow, given that no other manufacturer has managed to squeeze 1,920 x 1,080 pixels into a 42in...

Panasonic TH42PZ85

 

Feature packed and highly accomplished all round performance ..

The PZ85 joins Panasonic's PX80 series of Plasmas as one of the most accomplished flat panel TV's we have reviewed. In virtually all areas the PZ85 is outstanding. This performance no longer comes cheap however - this is a mid-level plasma offering...

Panasonic TH42PZ85B Review - 42" 1080p Plasma HDTV

 

Hot on the heels of the TH42PX80 HD-ready plasma television I reviewed just last month, the Panasonic TH42PZ85B – boasting their Intelligent Frame Creation (IFC) and 24p Real Cinema technologies in addition to full HD native screen resolution of 1920 x...

Great TV

 

With all that being said I think this is a great tv and well worth the price. I paid less than 1000 for it and I think that is a steel considering it blows most if not all tvs away in this price range.

Amazing TV. The best Blacks I have seen on a TV other than the Pioneer's ; No Jaggies, No blur, Blue Ray looks amazing ; The fake surround sound is neat. Sound quality is good

No Headphone jack. Not a huge problem ; Up close (within 3 feet) you can see a decent amount of video distortion. They could have shielded it better ; Colors are not as Rich as other T.V.'s ; The Menu options are very limited for piturte adjustment ;...

Awesome!

 

This is my first HDTV and couldn't have been happier with my purchase. Also picture settings make it nice and easy to go from gaming on my PS3 to watching Bluray movies.

This is a great TV. I had the plasma vs. lcd battle going on in my head for a while and figured since I watch more television at night time, plasma would be the superior choice. I could not be happier with this tv. Great for gaming. I have my PS3...

none so far

Love this TV

 

I shopped for at least 6 months for an LCD set for our bedroom. After I looked at this set I could not make myself go with an LCD. Big bright beautiful color picture!!!

Gorgeous picture, brilliant colors, good sound (but I use a separate audio system). This set blows away comparable LCD's.

Wow this thing generates some heat. Well worth a little heat for the quality of the picture.
