Panasonic TC-P55VT60 Review

The TC-P55VT60 is a direct replacement for the fine TCP55VT50 from last year. This 2013-2014 model has some new features but keeps the exceptional Infinite Black Ultra Panel. The 3000 Focus Field Drive produces images of 1080 lines for 2D for crisp, clean image motion. Read More...

Panasonic TC-P50S60 Review

The 600Hz sub-field drive in the TC-P50S60 handles fast action and side to side panning like the best of them. It lacks the 2500 focused-field drive of the ST60, but 600Hz is enough to handle the needs for most. There is little to no visible motion lag with fast action (at least not that the human eye can detect). Read More...

Panasonic TC-P55ST60 Review

The TC-P55ST60 is a NeoPlasma model with the Infinite Black Pro Filter. The picture quality is very similar to the GT50 series from last year with smooth transitions and lots of depth to go along with rich coloration. Use our calibrated picture settings to bring forth the best color balance to maximize your picture quality and pay close attention to our notes about the Motion Smoother. Read More...

Panasonic TC-P55GT50 Review

The TC-P55GT50 has the Infinite Black Pro panel that is Panasonic's best for 2012, but without the “Ultra” filter on the VT50 series which is even better. This is a big step up from lower end plasmas from Panasonic due to the much better signal processing. Black levels are about 20% better than lesser models with the extra fine processing of the sub pixel controller which controls the sub pixels red, green, blue inside each individual pixel cell.

Panasonic TC-P65VT50 Review

There is a lot more picture quality performance in the higher end lines of Panasonic Plasma starting with the TC-P65VT50 – the very top. So do not let 3D compatibility be your guiding source to the quality of the picture. For example you get much better processing with this TV through the sub pixel controller which controls the three phosphor elements in every pixel separately. Read More...

Panasonic TC-P55ST50 Review

The TC-P55ST50 has the Infinite Black Pro panel which the VT series had in 2011 with a cell structure that increases black levels by 1.5 times by blocking more ambient light with the louvered filter. Read More...

Panasonic TC-P50ST30 Review

Panasonic's ST30 series plasma is a new series for 2011, where the S series offers plasma picture quality at a budget price the ST30 has a higher end panel and 3D capability. It doesn't have some bells and whistles of the top line models but it has excellent picture quality and 3D at a great price point. Read More...

Panasonic TC-P50GT30 3D Plasma Review

See the Video Review The GT30 series 3D plasma represents Panasonics next to highest end features and price model for 2011. Only the VT30 will have more features at a higher price. The post calibration picture is extremely vibrant but still realistic. Colors pop off the screen and envelop you in the picture. Read more...

Panasonic TC-P50S30 3D Plasma Review

The S30 is the replacement for 2010's very popular and top selling S2 series of plasma televisions. It offers a good picture an feature set at an affordable price and is available in a variety of sizes. We review the TC-P50S30 after the jump. Read more...

Panasonic TC-P50VT25 3D Plasma Review

The TC-P50VT25 is the highest end top tier offering from Panasonic for 2010. The TV is 3D ready, has THX certifications, is Skype enabled (camera sold seperately), and contains Panasonic's new NEO PDP (plasma display panel). How do all of these new features and the accompanying picture quality add up? Read more...

Panasonic TC-P54G25 3D Plasma Review

The TC-P54G25 is Panasonic's next to highest end offering for 2010. The only features lacking in this model from the highest end VT25 series is 3D capability. I does contain the new Skype enabled feature, and has THX certifications for picture calibrations and settings. So the big question with this model is how is stacks up against some of the new LCD/LED TVs as the 54" category is very rare with plasma TVs. Read more...

Panasonic Viera TC-P54S1 Plasma Review

The picture presentation of the 54S1 is exceptionally bright for a plasma TV. Black levels are deep and strong with an HD signal input through HDMI. While not the best we've seen lately, they lose the dark gray haziness that the S1 displays with a 480i signal. Color is plenty saturated and dark shadow detail remains excellent. Read the full TC-P54S1 Review

Panasonic Viera TC-P50G10 Plasma Review

This Panasonic offers an unusually bright picture for a plasma television. Black levels are somewhat compromised with normal television signals and contrast is competitive though not great for a plasma TV. Aesthetics are a highlight. I really like the thin gloss frame with bevel rounded edges. The framing bezel is just a touch over 1.5" - Great! The graduated silver bar in the bottom of the frame adds a nice 3-dimensional touch.

Panasonic Viera TC-P50X1 Plasma TV Review

When we wrote our initial comments regarding the 50X1 plasma from Panasonic in March when the units were introduced we were under the false assumption that this Panasonic model, though 720p rather than 1080p would preserve the excellent black levels for which Panasonic is known. We were wrong. The black levels are not sufficient to garner a good picture quality rating. We were right about the price coming in low. It can be found for a stunningly low price. We still maintain that 720p (as the X1 contains) is sufficient for 95% of programming out there even on a 50" screen if the processing is solid. But read our review below to find out how the X1 performed.

Panasonic Viera TC-P42X1 Plasma TV Review

We accurately predicted back in March 2009 that the price on the X1 720p models would be compelling. The TC-P42X1 can be purchased for around $750 at Best Buy or Amazon as of June 2009. The 50X1 is only a couple hundred dollars more so we were somewhat disappointed by the 42X1 price. We suspect Samsung's PN42B450 model is a better performer at a slightly lower price. The LG 42PQ30 also shows promising features in the 42" size at around $700.The 42" size range for plasma is really seeing a lot of competition from LCD TV models.

Panasonic TH-50PZ85U vs. Samsung PN50A650 Plasma TV Review

Panasonic and Samsung have a strong battle going for the top spot in 1st Tier plasma sales and both have alluring new products arriving summer of 2008. The Samsung plasma model tested represents the companies 2nd tier plasma product, while the TH50PZ85U Panasonic plasma is that company’s 3rd tier plasma TV product. However, these two products cost about the same. Both have one or two plamsa’s still to come in 2008 with higher cost and more features.

The Panasonic TH-50PZ85U manufacture date on the model tested is February, 2008 assembled in Mexico. The Samsung PN50A650 manufacture date is April, 2008 assembled in Tijuana, Mexico. So both models are new spring 2008 release models first shown at CES 2008. This Panasonic Plasma is the 11th generation, while the Samsung is a 6th or 7th generation plasma.

Panasonic Viera TH-46PZ85U Review

Finally! A plasma TV manufacturer has attacked the 46" size product category. It's about time as this is a very popular size and LCD TV manufacturers have been dominating it. The TH-46PZ85U is a 3rd level product in Panasonic's lineup for 2008. There are two premium models with more features in the PZ800U series and the PZ850U series products. We'll leave the upgrade commentaries for another article. Still, even as a 3rd level offering this plasma television is packed with some strong features, especially in the picture category. The plasma is the brightest I've ever experienced and with the anti glare technology present in this plasma it is a true competitor to the best LCDs even in a bright light environment. This is one of the main improvements that Panasonic has infused this plasma with. Before turning it on I never dreamed we would see a plasma this bright. Read the full TH-46PZ85U Review

Panasonic TH-42PX75U Review

This entry level Panasonic plasma TV did not spare any technologies concerning picture quality. The up conversion from 480p sources was true original content, realistic, and clean. When viewing Body Heat, the picture was alluring and smooth as Kathleen Turner pleads with her husband not to go down stairs as her lover William Hurt enters the house to kill him. The plasma TV cleaned up the motion artifacts well and there was no false contouring. Read the full TH-42PX75U Review

Panasonic TH-50PX75U Review

Plasma still outperforms LCD by quite a bit in picture quality. The TH-50PX75U plasma TV will give the owner a stellar picture, surpassed by very few 50" plasmas on the market and I would venture to say no LCD televisions. The only drawback is the lack of all those extra features. This is a great looking display with bare bones features. Read the full TH-50PX75U Review
