Stunning 2D hi-def images, File-friendly media streaming, Crosstalk free 3D performance
No 3D glasses in the box, No integrated Wi-Fi, Design lacks wow factor
Let’s not beat about the bush, the TX-P50GT30 is a fabulous plasma display. While we’d like to see greater design flair, the panel compensates with a high def image performance that shows 90 per cent of its rivals a clean pair of heals. We’d rate this
Crosstalkfree 3D, Peerless contrast, Good value for what's on offer
Not the brightest pictures, especially with 3D, Judder with some sources
While recent TVs from LG and Samsung in particular have reminded us that Panasonic could still do with injecting a little more brightness into its 3D pictures, overall the P46GT30 renews our belief that we as AV enthusiasts would rather watch 3D on a Pana...
One of the things we love about plasma TVs is the fact that colour reproduction is often excellent, with the Panasonic TX-P42GT30B proving a great example. Colours are bright, vibrant and realistic, and movies look fantastic. The integrated 3D technology also promises to bring films to life. You'll be able to access programmes from both Freeview HD and Freesat HD, with channels scanned for and sa
It's a struggle to find anything wrong with the Panasonic TX-P42GT30B itself, but there is one big omission – the lack of any active glasses to go with the TV. Instead, you'll have to fork out an additional £110 per pair if you want to watch content in 3D.
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 a...
Great picture in 2D and 3D, Excellent contrast ratio: 5310:1 in THX mode, Almost no crosstalk, Very wide viewing angles, No Blackfloating in THX mode
Very average audio quality with muffled sound, Glossy screen picks up reflections, Power adaptor makes annoying noise, High energy consumption: 340 W in THX mode and 230 W in Professional mode
The GT30 has more contrast than the older GT20, has a great quality picture once you set it up in THX mode. The most demanding viewers will probably prefer the VT30 for getting closer to perfection, the GT30 is almost certainly better value for money....
Overall, I would rate the TX-P42GT30 as an outstanding TV. And should you want to spring for those expensive Active Shutter glasses, the 3D image is clean and immersive, its network functionality is first rate and 2D image quality is deeply satisfyi...
Viera Connect, 3D pictures, extraordinary 2D high-def, contrast, colour
3D glasses not included, wired LAN only
Killer blacks, peerless colour and the best 3D performance we’ve seen so far; this 50-inch “neo plasma”, complete with multimedia features including BBC iPlayer, DivX playback and Skype video calling, sees Panasonic in confident mood. If Wi-Fi and 3D g...
Extremely deep black levels, Stunning colours, Topclass 3D performance, Good range of features
Design could be slicker still, More Internet services would be welcome
The 46-inch Panasonic Viera TX-P46GT30B is an outstanding TV. Deep black levels and rich colours make standard- and high-definition content look wonderful, while its 3D performance is also top-class. We've no hesitation in recommending this plasma beau...
