  • To end our analysis with a much needed conclusion, we think that Panasonic's Viera TX-P50VT30 isn't a great improvement over the VT30, but it works well and won't damage quickly....

  • If you're interested mainly in 2D viewing and want the biggest, and by most people's estimation, the best consumer Plasma TV available at the time of writing, then this is it. Running the newest system software (firmware), the Panasonic TX-P65VT30 is a sl...

  • With small rather than revolutionary improvements in virtually every aspect of its performance, Panasonic's flagship TX-P50VT30 deserves to be recognized as one of the best TVs money can buy. 3D ability, Colour reproduction, black levels Could be bet...

  • Abstract:  With prices starting at around £2,500, the Panasonic Viera TX-P55VT30B is probably not a 3D TV for the faint of heart - or the light of wallet. However, with Panasonic's TVs consistently in end-of-year charts and awards, they are always worth a look, w...

  • Excellent contrast performance; deep black levels; delicate and nuanced colours; impressive 3D; good Internet features
  • Pricey; annoying Freeview EPG
  • The 55-inch Panasonic Viera TX-P55VT30B plasma TV doesn't come cheap, but it packs great 2D and 3D pictures, beefy audio, and smashing Internet features into an attractive chassis. It's one of the best TVs you can currently buy....

  • IFC picture processing can bring unwanted side effects, undeniably expensive, Panasonic's 3D glasses can proved uncomfortable if worn for prolonged periods
  • Panasonic’s TV engineers have topped themselves with the astonishing TX-P42VT30. It’s a class leading 3D TV that combines a refined performance with elegant design. Rival screens may be able to challenge the VT30 in individual areas such as design or n...
