Panasonic Viera TX-P42VT30

 

Panasonic's flagship VT30 TV range is here. And our only complaint is that we want a bigger one...

Mesmerisingly good performance standards ; Practically no crosstalk with 3D ; Huge feature count

It's not cheap for a 42in TV ; Optimised pictures not spectacularly bright ; Some judder with 50Hz PAL

The P42VT30 is another stunning Panasonic TV, with class-leading black level response, wonderful detail resolution and the cleanest 3D picture yet seen. It’s also beautifully built and rich in multimedia features, as well as being reasonable value when...

Panasonic TX-P42VT30 review

 

Flagship Panasonic plasma is 3D screen royalty

Overall, this Neoplasma meets our high expectations. It combines wonderful design with best in class 3D and videophile image quality. Intriguingly, this set’s strongest competition doesn’t come from another brand. Its key rival is Panasonic’s own,...

Panasonic TX-P42VT30

 

Ever since Pioneer pulled the plug on its highly-rated Kuro line of plasma screens, enthusiasts have been looking for a new hero brand to fill the void. Panasonic has always been the favoured candidate, not only because it has consistently enjoyed...

Beautiful 2D images with vibrant hues and huge contrast, crosstalk-free 3D, content rich IPTV and apps portal, bullet-proof file support and media streaming, elegant design with plush remote control

IFC picture processing can bring unwanted side effects, undeniably expensive, Panasonic’s 3D glasses can proved uncomfortable if worn for prolonged periods

We think the TX-P42VT30 is a fabulous 3D TV. Its picture performance, whatever the dimension, is outstanding. The screen also sets the pace when it comes to media streaming and online connectivity. The TX-P42VT30 may be a little rich for some pockets,...

Panasonic TX-P42VT30B review

 

Sophisticated 3D plasma TV with superb performance and extensive multimedia capability

Unrivalled picture performance ; Ships with two pairs of 3D glasses ; Wi-Fi dongle included

Expensive for a 42-inch TV ; Extra contrast filter can make its pictures a little dim ; Some judder with 50Hz video

The Panasonic TX-P42VT30B looks terrifyingly good on paper.

Panasonic VIERA P42VT30B review

 

For this review we tested the 42in model in the VT30 range, but it's also available in 50in (TX-P50VT30B), 55in (TX-P55VT30B) and 65in (TX-P65VT30B) screen sizes. All models have identical specifications except for their dimensions and power usage....

Everything you could want from a TV, including fantastic image quality, but the GT30 is better value

Very pretty with all sorts of functionality. Basic television operation is very simple.

Unless you are really into the technology it takes some serious concentration to use the full functionality.
