Panasonic TH-46PZ85U


The Panasonic TH-46PZ85U introduces a new screen size for plasma televisions while delivering significantly improved picture contrast.

Impressive contrast ratio. Excellent SD video processing.

Slightly oversaturated colors. Overscan with 720p video sources. No 1080p input with VGA or component video ports.

As a plasma display, the TH-46PZ85U delivers excellent picture consistency from a wider range of viewing angles compared with LCD TVs. But in a brightly lit environment, the set's antireflective screen surface is no match for the diffuse filters used...

Panasonic TH-46PZ85 review


Neatly straddling the gap between 40in and 50in TV screens, this 46-incher gives a lovely big image from its compact chassis

This is a great TV occupying something of a nice market – we’ve seen better, but not for this amazing price

Panasonic TH-46PZ85


Aesthetically the 46PZ85 is a touch disappointing. Not ugly by any means, but certainly a touch staid in its straightforward black bezel and angular lines.

Mostly terrific pictures, fair price considering the quality on offer, lots of good image processing

Intelligent Frame Creation can cause artefacts if not used sparingly, occasionally some red colours look a little orange

First Plasma


The shipping was fast! The delivery guy was very cool! He was very helpful and nice, had a conversation about my TV and even though it was an at door delivery he helped me walk it inside. They told me it would arrive between 2-4 it arrived at noon! Go...

This is my first HDTV/Plasma. I must say I did a lot of research and did my homework on hundreds of TV's Let this review be a deciding factor. That there is no flaws. I love this TV. It has a crystal clear picture, no motion blur, I have a window...

There is not one Con I have on this Plasma. It's outstanding. Anything that you could call a con would just be a preference

Shipping was great! AIT had my TV here fast. Newegg is great. CC going out of business close out + 30% off prices still can't touch the deals here at Newegg. Great Price, free shipping, no sales tax, I couldn't have gotten a better deal anywhere, I...

I debated for over a year on whether to buy LCD or Plasma. I read internet articles. I visited local CC and BB showrooms. I helped my dad decide on a 52" LCD for his home. He has a large room with lots of window and needed something very bright and...

None really. Standard plasma complaints. TV is heavy. Wah! How often do you really pick your TV up? I wall mounted mine and now I don't have to worry about it. Wall mount supports up to 200 lbs. This TV only weighs about 80. You do the math.

Excellent Product


I am a patient researcher and lookedfor months. I had already had an HDTV (Sony 36" CRT) for years and finally decided to get a new larger TV. Chose plasma for the obvious reasons- haven't found an LCD that competes with the detail and blacks.

Easy Setup, Variety of inputs,/outputs. Gorgeous Picture ; one of the best I've seen including KURO. Best HDTV for the price by far

None so far

I've owned several HDTV's including two Samsung 1080P LCD's, and they've never come close to the stunning picture I get with this Panasonic Plasma. I never really noticed how much motion blur and lag the LCD's had until I set up my new Plasma. I'm...

The only con is that the first one I ordered came with a broken screen, but Newegg worked with me and had a replacement to me in 3 days. When they saw how displeased I was, they immediately acted to make the situation right, which is refreshing to see.

AVS forums have break-in directions. First 100hrs it is recommended to turn the picture setting to 50 or less (Panasonic specifies 0). Keep tv viewing with static images and gaming to 2hrs or less. Why? The first 100hrs of a plasma's life is when the...

Phenomenal picture. Beautiful colors, no motion blur. Plenty of hookups. 1080p Dish|HD, Ps3 and 360 look incredible. I'm glad I bought a plasma instead of an LCD.

Absolutely none.
