  • 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...

  • Superb 2D image quality, Great media streaming, Crosstalk-free 3D
  • No built-in Wi-Fi, 3D is a little dark, Expensive
  • Beautifully built, ambitiously equipped and blessed with a stonking AV performance regardless of your preferred dimension, the TX-P50VT30 is a cut above the majority of highstreet flatscreens. This is a display of legendary finesse. It may be expensiv

  • 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....
