Panasonic Viera TX-P50GT30 Review

Key Features

  • 50in plasma screen
  • Active 3D built in
  • Viera Connect built in
  • Extensive multimedia support
  • ISF and THX endorsement


We thought last year’s Panasonic GT20 plasma TVs were good, but the P50GT30 knocks the spots of its predecessors. It ramps up the online functionality that’s becoming such an essential item of 2011’s TV feature counts, sports a drastically improved design, and best of all serves up the best 2D and 3D picture quality we’ve seen from a mid-range TV.

2010 was the year plasma fought back. The arrival of 3D and plasma’s demonstrable superiority at showing it suddenly saw the elder statesman of the flat TV game elbowing its upstart LCD rival out of the commercial spotlight for the first time in ages.

Given that it was Panasonic’s 3D TVs in particular that drove thisĀ  plasma resurrection, it’s fair to say we’re pretty pumped at the arrival on our test benches of Panasonic’s first 2011 3D plasma TV, the 50inĀ  TX-P50GT30.


  • Outstanding picture quality
  • Good multimedia features
  • Superb build quality


  • Reduction in brightness with 3D
  • Image retention
  • Irritating 3D glasses design
