Panasonic TC-P58VT25 3DTV Quick Review: Best HDTV ever made? Print E-mail
Written by Kevin Miller   
Thursday, 07 October 2010

panasonicvt25.jpgPros: Excellent black level performance. Good but not perfect overall color accuracy. Good feature set with very good connectivity. 3D ready.

Cons: Contrast ratio is limited because the panel clips white significantly at a contrast setting above 46 severely limiting light output. Color accuracy is marred by incorrect color decoding.

To Buy Or Not To Buy? While it may be one of the better panels on the market right now, it is by no means a contender to the Pioneer KRP or Elite from a year or two ago. For about $2400, it does out perform most all of the 55-inch direct array backlit LED LCD panels on the market at least in some areas of performance, and at a much lower price.

Pros :  Excellent setup features for optimizing the picture quality in the Expert/ISF menus, extremely accurate color, and 3D capable.

Cons : THX Cinema mode blocks all setup features for calibration. Significant halo effect around bright objects like credits on a film. Color decoding is not correct for either Rec 709 or Rec 601HD and SD sources.

To Buy Or Not To Buy? One of the best performing LED backlight LCD panels with local area dimming technology on the market today. Highly recommended!

panasonic-viera-g25-g20-s2-u2-c2-series-plasma-tvs-1.jpgPros:  Good blacks translate into solid contrast ratio. Relatively good color fidelity. Incredible value for the money.

Cons: Color points, especially green, are well outside of the Rec 709 specifications.

To Buy or Not To Buy? This budget entry level plasma leaves a little to be desired in the performance arena, but the price can not be beat. Solid value for the money.

panasonic-plasma_10-g25.jpgPros: Good blacks, and much more light output capability than on the earlier G10, G15, and V10 series panels.


Cons: No motion smoothing processing for 1080p/24fps Blu-ray, and not 3D capable.


To Buy or Not To Buy: Excellent  value for the money. Very good performance coupled with excellent connectivity, and a good feature package. Highly recommended!

Samsung PN58C7000 Plasma HDTV Quick Review Print E-mail

samsung pn58c7000.jpgPros: At about $2,500, the PN58C7000 is a relatively good value in big screen plasmas. Good feature set with very good connectivity. 3D ready.


Cons : Blacks are not as good as the best Panasonics (Especially the VT25 series). Color decoding continues to push red slightly rendering skin tones too pink.

To Buy Or Not To Buy? A good performer overall with slightly better blacks than last year’s flagship models the PN860 series. While not quite as good as Panasonic’s best THX certified models, the PN58C7000 is a credible performer. Recommended.
