Panasonic Viera TX-PF50G30 Review

The latest addition to Panasonic’s collection of plasma TVs is the new G30, which is billed as an alternative to the five-star GT30 series but without support for 3D.  Apart from that, the two TVs share the same hardware and features.

We’ve tested the G30, and we’re happy to confirm that it’s almost identical to the GT30.  If you’d like to find out more, we suggest you read our review of the Panasonic GT30, but we’ll recap a few key points in this review.



Great picture quality

Excellent contrast ratio: 6000:1 in THX mode

Very wide viewing angles

No Blackfloating in THX mode

Good audio quality



Glossy screen susceptible to reflections

Power adaptor makes annoying noise

High energy consumption: 355 W in THX mode



The Panasonic G30 is very similar to the GT30, except it doesn’t have support for 3D.  Once you’re in THX mode, the picture quality is good, with accurate colour reproduction and high contrast ratios making it the ideal choice for Home Cinema fans.
