New Panasonic Viera WT5 and ZT5

New Panasonic Viera WT5 and ZT5
With the beginning of the Euro 2012 Tournament and the Olympic Games, the television leading manufacturers have new options, in order to increase sales. This is the case of Panasonic, which introduced in Japan two new series of TVs, the WT5 and ZT5. The WT5 series are available in “small” sizes (here, we mean little models of 47 and 55 inches). With a striking design, which highlights a chassis just 9.8 mm thick, these TVs are equipped with IPS panels with HD resolution and have compatibility with 3D content. These models also include a triple tuner, recording programming via USB port, 2.1 ch sound system and control through iOS devices. The ZT5 series consists of models with dimensions...

Panasonic Viera TC-P55ST50 3D Plasma HDTV Review

Panasonic Viera TC-P55ST50 3D Plasma HDTV Review
Panasonic‘s 2012 plasmas are beginning to hit store shelves. The line includes six series: (from top to bottom) the VT, GT, ST, UT, U, and XT Series. In the middle of the pack is the ST Series, which includes screen sizes of 50, 55, 60, and 65 inches. The ST Series lacks the THX certification found in the higher-end GT and VT models, and a few technological differences exist that I will highlight throughout this review. What you do get with the ST Series is the latest Infinite Black Pro panel with the new Louver filter, 2500 Focused Field Drive technology to improve motion resolution, built-in WiFi, VIERA CONNECT, DLNA media streaming, and 3D Real Sound with the new 8-Train speaker panel....

NHK and Panasonic’s 145-inch 8K Plasma TV

NHK and Panasonic’s 145-inch 8K Plasma TV
NHK, one of the giants of Japanese television, launched last year a 85-inch LCD screen in collaboration with Sharp, and, a year ago, we reviewed the 70-inch but now they have gone a step further with the presentation of a Panasonic Ultra High Definition plasma screen of 145 inches. This TV uses the Super Hi-Vision format with a 8k resolution. 8K translates to an exact resolution of 7,680×4,320, and while there’s no publicly available 8K footage, NHK has been experimenting with an 8K image sensor, the output of which could be displayed on this TV natively. “One major feature of this 145-inch Ultra High Definition display is that it gives a very even image at such a high resolution. Another...

Samsung PN51D550 Budget 3D Plasma Review
A new Samsung plasma TV made ​​its appearance in our comparison. This is the PN51D550, a 3D Full HD TV 51 inch with an affordable price. Last year, we were pleasantly surprised by the quality/price ratio of Samsung PN50C6970 plasma. So we were eager to test this new PN51D550. No luck, the manufacturer was not in a position to provide one. We therefore appealed to a reader – whom we thank...

LG 50PZ550 50-inch 3D Plasma HDTV Review
It’s been said that you don’t miss something until after its gone. Well, it’s been awhile since I’ve spent considerable time with an HD plasma and I must say it wasn’t until the LG 50PZ550 arrived on my doorstep that I realized how much I missed having a quality plasma display in my home. The whole world may be turning to LED backlit LCD HDTVs but that doesn’t mean...

Panasonic Viera TX-P42ST30 Review

Panasonic Viera TX-P42ST30 Review
Since the start of this year, Panasonic has offered not just two ranges of 3D TVs, but three.  We’ve already reviewed the VT30 and the GT30 series, but now it’s the turn of the ST30, which is even more affordable than its two predecessors.  It seems that one way that Panasonic has kept costs down is by reusing a case from 2010.  Not only does the design fall behind current standards,...

Panasonic Viera TX-PF50G30 Review

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...

Panasonic Viera TX-P50VT30 Review

Panasonic Viera TX-P50VT30 Review
Panasonic is busy updating its VT range of televisions, and today’s VT30 is the successor to the five-star VT20 from last year.  The picture quality hasn’t really changed much from one generation to the next: it’s as impressive as ever in both 2D and 3D.  Instead, Panasonic has put a lot of work into improving the design of its 2011 collection.  The new look is very attractive,...
