PANASONIC TC-P42GT25 3D PLASMA In Depth Product Review E-mail
In Depth HDTV Reviews
Saturday, 11 December 2010

panasonic tc-p42gt25.jpgPros:  Very good value for the money at a list price of $1,699. Very good black levels, and accurate color gamut (in the THX picture mode) that adheres to the ITU-709 specifications for HDTV. The panel has good off axis viewing when compared to LCD panels, and good 3D picture quality.


Cons: The panel begins to clip white and color at very low contrast levels yielding a very low 17 fTLs. of peak light output with no clipping, and with whites extending out beyond the 235 range for white in a video signal. Grayscale and gamma tracking is inconsistent and choppy by comparison to other flat panels on the market both plasma and LCD.


To Buy or not to Buy? Considering the TC-P42GT25 is available for under $1,500 on the Internet, it is a relatively good value for the money. It is a very credible performer with good overall color accuracy. One major flaw: It clips the video signal at very low contrast levels making its light output somewhat limited.

Turn your Pioneer 20 Series into a Pioneer Elite - PDP-5020 / 6020 - Elite PRO-111FD or PRO-151FD E-mail

pioneer_logo_kuro.jpgHow would you like to be able to turn your Pioneer PDP-5020 or PDP-6020 into an Elite Pro-111FD or Pro-151FD?


If you know anything about the last couple of generation Pioneer plasma panels, you know that from a picture quality and performance stand point the PDP series were good panels, and the Elites were great panels. You may also know that with the 20 series PDP panels, Pioneer attempted to prevent professional technicians from calibrating these panels by locking them out of the service menu. The company’s stance was if you want a Pioneer that can be calibrated you must step up to an Elite, which could be construed as a pretty arrogant move. In response to Pioneer’s move, a small software company named ControlCal engineered an interface with the panel in order to work around this problem.

Calibrating 3DTVs: Why Best Buy Can't Do It E-mail
Thursday, 14 October 2010

There are a number of important criteria for accurately calibrating displays for both 2D and 3D performance. The first is the display itself must have the ability to storeseparate settings at the HDMI input you wish to use for 3D. The reason for thisis that the glasses change the grayscale, color gamut, and the brightness amongother parameters from what would otherwise be correct for a 2D setup.
