The editors didn't like

  • Minuses
  • Glossy screen leads to reflections
  • Glasses can get uncomfortable
  • No rubber tips
  • Mediocre remote with no backlighting
  • Slightly high energy consumtion
  • 302 W
  • Ambient light detector can't be turned off in THX mode
  • The sheer size of this telly means that any picture issues are easy to spot
  • There is slightly more 3D crosstalk than on Panasonic’s 50-inch plasmas
  • And despite some classy upscaling tech inside standard definition content can lack detail. These are really just symptoms of a large screen though – not really Panasonic’s fault.
  • Some are crisper
  • Occasional stutter
  • 3D could be brighter
  • 2D could go deeper
  • Uncomfortable 3D glasses
  • No DivX HD
  • Poor value remote control
  • Streaming video-file support isn't comprehensive
  • Ads embedded in the TV guide
  • 3D content looks darker than on other sets
  • Expensive
  • Engaging 3D is a faff
  • Outmoded design
  • Annoying EPG
  • IFC side-effects
  • Awkward 3D eyewear
  • Inconsistent and unimaginative menus
  • Ordinary sound
  • Ads in the TV guide

  • Yes, it’s pricey and yes, it needs to be accommodated in a barn-sized living room, but the Panasonic TX-P65VT20 is a fantastically impressive luxury TV whether you’re watching 3D or old-fashioned 2D images.Panasonic TX-P65VT20 has no tags. User comment...

  • Is Plasma a dying breed? Well it wouldn’t be the first time market forces have seen the superior technology lose out, but we hope there’ll be a place in the future for plasma technology. The quality of the 3D on the Panasonic TX-P50VT20 is stunning, a...

  • Abstract:  Regular readers will know that we've already seen most of Panasonic's ground-breaking VT20 3D plasma TVs. But the one that's slipped through the cracks has the potential, in our opinion, to be the most popular model of all. That model is the TX-P46VT20: ...

  • Like the 42″ model, the Panasonic TX-P46VT20B 3D Plasma TV still doesn't manage to be quite as recommendable as the wonderful TX-P50VT20 we reviewed back in May last year. Although its Stereoscopic 3D video output has the same involving 3D effect (thanks...

  • Excellent picture quality; good with both standard- and high-definition sources; no motion blur or overt 3D crosstalk
  • Streaming video-file support isn't comprehensive; ads embedded in the TV guide; 3D content looks darker than on other sets
  • Panasonic still delivers the best 3D in town. Perhaps more importantly, the Viera TX-P46VT20 is a knockout 2D set. It's extremely well-equipped, with picture quality that movie fans will love....
