  • Excellent picture quality, Affordable for a 50in Panasonic plasma, Good multimedia features,
  • Not the brightest picture, Some jaggedness with 50Hz sources, Not helpful for wall mounting, Recommended by TR,
  • Interestingly, Panasonic hasn’t flexed quite all of its picture quality muscles with the P50G30, saving one or two tricks exclusively for its 3D screens. The result is that it’s not quite as good a performer even with 2D as most of the 3D models. But i...

  • Great picture quality, Excellent contrast ratio: 6000:1 in THX mode, Very wide viewing angles, No Blackfloating in THX mode, Good audio quality
  • Glossy screen susceptible to reflections, Power adaptor makes annoying noise, High energy consumption: 252 W in THX mode
  • The Panasonic G30 is very similar to the GT30, except it doesn't have support for 3D. Once you're in THX mode, the picture quality is good, with accurate colour reproduction and high contrast ratios making it the ideal choice for Home Cinema fans....

  • Smooth, fluid and cinematic hi-def images, Viera Connect portal, Tidy design and solid build quality, Plenty of picture tweaks available
  • Lack of uniformity across the menus, Remote control needs revamping, Bland audio performance, Average brightness
  • Panasonic has had such success with its 3D plasma TVs over the last year that it's a wonder the TX-P50G30B even exists. But while a high-end, 50-inch plasma TV that holds no truck with the third dimension is unlikely to get tech-heads salivating, it sh...

  • Deep black levels and rich colour, Good Web services, including iPlayer, Effective SD upscaling, Above average sound quality
  • Poor Freeview guide, Boring design
  • The Panasonic G30 delivers great looking SD and HD pictures, comes with a good line-up of features, including BBC iPlayer, and has better sound quality than most flatscreen TVs. If you're not interested in 3D, we think it's a great buy....

  • As a mid range flat panel offering, the TX-P42G30 is hard to fault and is just about the most sensible buy for the price. If however, you watch a lot of TV in a bright environment then an upgrade to the GT30 or higher with its Infinite Black Pro screen...

  • Abstract:  Panasonic's G Series has found itself given a promotion this year. No longer does it sit as the mid-tier plasma - third in the range. The TX-P42G30B is now the highest specced 2D only Panasonic plasma money can buy so we'll be interested to see if the G30...

  • Abstract:  Last year’s Panasonic G20 series emerged from 2010 as the Plasma HDTVs to beat at the mid-range price point. 2011’s midrange model, the new TX-P42G30B, has been with us for the last few weeks for in-depth calibration and assessment. As it happens, the ...

  • Panasonic G30 replaces the much acclaimed G20 model from 2010 that gave buyers a remarkable value-for-money proposition. G30 comes with many of the same multimedia features such as USB recording and DLNA. But G30 has also extended the multimedia offeri...

  • Bonne qualité d'image, Excellent taux de contraste en mode THX (6000:1 en moyenne), Angles de vision très ouverts, Pas de "blackfloating" en mode THX, Bonne qualité sonore
  • Ecran brillant sujet aux reflets, Léger sifflement du transformateur d'alimentation, Consommation électrique élevée : 252 Watts en mode THX
  • Le G30 offre une prestation similaire au GT30...la 3D en moins. Une fois passé en mode THX, il affiche une bonne qualité d'image. Couleurs fidèles, taux de contraste élevé, il est parfait pour les amateurs de Home Cinema....
