    Panasonic TX-P60ZT65B 60-inch plasma TV review

    By 11 October 2013

    People who know about TVs, and have tested lots of them - as we have - will almost universally agree that plasma TVs are amazing. We wouldn't discount LCD as a display technology, but for the absolute best picture quality you really can't beat a plasma....

    LG 50PM970T review

    By 12 November 2012

    A good plasma TV can transform your home cinema into an experience that rivals that of the movies. The subtle colours and deep blacks they offer form a contrast to the bright and vibrant world of the LED TV. They aren’t cheap, though: a top of the line...

    Samsung Series 8 64-inch plasma TV review

    By 24 July 2012

    After the initial eye-blasting that a gigantic 64-inch television brings you, it is quite difficult to actually sit down and take stock of just how this Samsung plasma performs. With an asking price of £2999 this is a set that really needs to impress....

    Panasonic TX-P50ST30 review

    By 22 December 2011

    Whether or not you’ve been impressed by 3D enough to have it at home, would you seriously consider buying a big, expensive TV that couldn't flirt with the third dimension at all? Panasonic has taken this quandary of modern times, and thus designed a...

    Samsung PS51D8000 review

    By 14 December 2011

    Samsung’s flagship plasma TV represents a delicious compromise. It’s got the second best online dimension, after Sony’s Bravia Internet Video platform, which is too often strapped to TVs with lacklustre 3D pictures. And the second best 3D performance,...

    Panasonic TX-P50VT30 review

    By 8 December 2011

    This is home cinema heaven. We can spot a blackout-bound plasma screen a mile off, but the backlit remote control in the TX-P50VT30’s box – it glows a dark red behind the buttons to delicately help with operation in the dark – is the first clue...

    Bang & Olufsen BeoVision 4-85 review

    By 11 July 2011

    Remember when the government deemed plasmas TVs the “4x4s of the living room”? Bang & Olufsen’s latest is more a road-train, clocking-in at a mighty 85-inches in diameter - so four times bigger than a 42-inch TV. It’s high-def, it’s 3D, it’s...

    Panasonic TX-P42VT30 review

    By 5 July 2011

    Ever since Pioneer pulled the plug on its highly-rated Kuro line of plasma screens, enthusiasts have been looking for a new hero brand to fill the void. Panasonic has always been the favoured candidate, not only because it has consistently enjoyed critical...

    Panasonic TX-50GT30 review

    By 26 April 2011

    Twelve months ago the ins and outs of 3DTVs were a mystery to us all as a plethora of high-priced LED TVs were thrown our way, but now we know the truth; if you want convincing 3D in your living room, choose a plasma. Panasonic, the only brand to offer...

    Panasonic's TH-103VX200W 103-inch 3D plasma hands-on

    By 7 February 2011

    Most flatscreen TVs are mass-market commodities, but Pocket-lint got a peek at some very special plasmas from Panasonic at this week’s trade-only ISE (integrated Systems Europe) event in Amsterdam. Already approved by Pope Benedict XVI - several of...

    Panasonic TX-P50S20B review

    By 8 November 2010

    Unless you’re after a 3DTV or simply must have a super-flat (and super-expensive) LED-lit LCD TV, the £900-or-so that buys this 50-inch plasma represents a fabulous deal. On price-per-inch this Panasonic can’t be beaten. Full HD and fitted with a...

    Panasonic TX-P42G20B review

    By 26 August 2010

    Choosing which free high-definition TV platform to go for can be difficult, but thankfully this 42-inch Panasonic plasma makes the decision a whole lot easier. It’s equipped with both Freeview HD and Freesat HD tuners, which means it’s ready to deliver...

    Panasonic TX-65VT20 review

    By 24 August 2010

    At 65-inches in diameter and with a depth of just 90mm, is this 3D Ready plasma the ultimate flatscreem TV? It certainly looks the part, but if you’re going to spend this kind of money on anything it should be faultless. And for all its high tech features...

    LG 50PK990 television review

    By 18 May 2010

    Flat TVs are hot products this summer thanks to the World Cup, and the big brands are shedding the pounds in preparation. None more so than this 50-inch plasma from LG, which defies tradition by slimming down to almost LED-like proportions. It’s a giddy...

    Samsung PS50B550 television review

    By 1 February 2010

    Only a few years ago the idea of getting a 50-inch Full HD plasma for £750 was unthinkable. Now, the choice is huge, and Samsung’s polished PS50B550 joins mid-range plasmas from LG and Panasonic as excellent value screens for anyone after the perfect...
