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 think by now it’s safe to say that is on a roll with its 2011 TVs. After a couple of years in the ‘good-but-not-great’ department, the company has delivered a raft of thoroughly competitive screens – the TX-P46GT30 is the...

The GT30 is a good set, but apart from slightly spiffier aesthetics, more cable clearance for a wall mount, an additional HDMI input, a PC input, and THX certification—which is of questionable value in this particular case—it offers little...

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,...

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...

The Panasonic TC-50GT30 plasma not only delivers a deliciously lush 2D picture, its rendering of 3D Blu-rays is one of the best that I have seen. Add to that a strong troupe of Internet content providers and this VIERA GT30 makes a great centerpiece...

The new Panasonic TX-P42GT30 may sit in a niche between the brand’s all-singing and dancing VT30 models and the entry level 3D ST30s, but it’s unquestionably a high-end proposition. The GT30 uses the same high contrast Infinite Black Pro...
