Such is our confidence in the current range, and the ST30 line in particular, we were moved to flag-up this set’s price to readers over Christmas.Down to £650 (and even less now if you shop around) we hadn’t reviewed it, but having...

The P42ST30B is the most affordable Panasonic plasma yet to offer viewing in the third dimension, and in terms of both spec and looks, it is the runt of the brand’s 3D plasma range. Its appearance is somewhat unrefined with its grey-green screen,...

A good TV for 2D, but the lack of included glasses and lack of HD detail means it's not perfect. But overall, this is a likeable screen that gets our seal of approval...

If you don’t need media streaming features or a Freesat tuner, then the Panasonic TX-P46ST30 is an excellent alternative to Panasonic's GT30, as it delivers much the same picture quality, yet costs around £300...

After its supernatural show of strength in our 2011 Awards (particularly for the GT30 series), is back with a more modestly priced, more modestly specified contender. And back with the same clarity of purpose it’s been exhibiting all year. The...

That a 50-inch, 3D-ready plasma TV originally on sale for over £1500 can now be had with over a third off is proof of how short-lived a fillip the third dimension has given TV sales, but there's a big reason why the Panasonic TX-P50ST30B...

Panasonic got a lot right when it designed the TX-P50ST30b. Unfortunately, the image quality wasn't one of those things. The picture isn't awful, but it should be better....

Like the GT30 before it, the Panasonic ST30 television produces a great quality picture. It's a great choice for Home Cinema fans with a tight...

Aside from lacking some multimedia features and a little 3D finesse, the P46ST30 is very much a chip off the old Panasonic 3D plasma block. Which is, of course, a very good thing - especially when it comes to being able to watch 3D with little...

The ST30 series represents Panasonic’s most affordable range of 3D-capable Plasma displays for 2011. Available in 42, 46 and 50″ sizes, the TX-P42ST30B (reviewed here) features Panasonic’s high-performance NeoPlasma panel (1920x1080p...

Der TX-P42ST30 ist ein ordentlicher, optisch ansprechender Plasma mit einer beeindruckenden Bildqualität. Es wird deutlich, dass der Hersteller die Kritik an den Vorgängergeräten ernstgenommen...

De Panasonic-menu's ogen iets ouder dan bij de meeste concurrenten. Sinds 2011 zijn de menu's lichtjes opgepoetst en van een beetje grafische opsmuk voorzien, maar het blijft een minimalistisch ogend resultaat. Dat hoeft echter geen nadeel te...

Wie op zoek is naar een goede plasma-tv maar slechts een beperkt budget heeft, zou de TX-P42ST30 van Panasonic zeker in overweging moeten nemen. Hoewel het optisch niet de fraaiste televisie is die we dit jaar in ons lab hebben gehad, is deze tv wel...

Panasonic arrive toujours à contrer le LED avec du plasma, même dans cette diagonale. En l’occurrence, le constructeur japonais décline une version encore meilleur marché du fameux GT30. Évidemment, l’écran perd...
