Panasonic's plasma TVs are regarded a cut above the average HDTV and are excellent for movie buffs especially as they give cinematic dark room performance and it would be ideal, if you could opt for a large screen of at least 42" or bigger. However, if you're keen on something smaller Panasonic has suitable LED televisions too. Our list of the best Panasonic TVs for movies includes LED TVs with quick response times, so they can be as good as plasma sets for fast paced action movies.

  • Superb all-around picture quality, anchored by the deepest plasma black levels of the year, make the Panasonic TC-PVT30 series the best-performing TV we've tested in 2011.

  • Rating Unavailable

    Panasonic's VT25 series 3D plasma won many awards in 2010, including the Best of the Show award at CES 2010. Even though we didn't think it was the very best 3D TV available we thought it was certainly one of the best and a TV no consumer would be disappointed with. Panasonic returns to CES 2011 with the VT30 series, introducing new features and new screen sizes. The VT30 is the flagship from Panasonic this year and continues Panasonic's impressive tradition with plasma tv technology.


  • Overall, though, this is a traffic stopper of a TV. The quality of Panasonic's VT30 panel and the accompanying picture engine isn't diminished by the size of the screen beast. Indeed, if anything it's enhanced, with 3D a spectacular beneficiary. It's almost like having your own personal IMAX.


  • With both 2D and 3D sources, Panasonic's flagship TC-PVT20/25 series plasma TV delivers outstanding overall picture quality.


  • The Panasonic TC-P50VT20 ($2499 MSRP) didn't exactly wow us. It's picture quality was average, its online content was fairly sparse, and it's 3D experience doesn't seem particularly robust. Don't get us wrong: we're grateful you can actually watch 3D on it at launch, thanks to the glasses and 3D-capable Blu-ray player bundle they're currently offering. Unfortunately, the first examples of new technology are often lackluster, and that certainly seems to be the case with the first batch of 3D HDTVs as well.


  • - Solid connectivity with four HDMI and one PC input.
    - In the end we were able to improve color temperature and color accuracy a bit, although most of our other settings were similar to studio reference.
    - Other areas of the Panasonic's color performance were very good.

  • Rating Unavailable

    - The connection options are thorough, and the SD card slot is a nice perk.

  • Rating Unavailable

    - Its noise reduction is effective and manages to improve the low quality SD content.
    - The sound is more than decent for watching TV and is acceptable even for HD movies.


  • - Noise reduction was solid, on the other hand, as all three noise reduction settings, especially Mosquito, contributed to removing motes and snow from low-quality shots of skies and sunsets.
    - Connectivity on the TC-PG10 series is perfectly adequate, but not great, starting with three HDMI inputs--two on the back and a third on the side.

  • Rating Unavailable

    - Black levels were not strong with this input signal.
    - Color is plenty saturated and dark shadow detail remains excellent.
    - The menu is very simple and straightforward but with ample options except white balance controls.
    - Color rendition is realistic and certainly on the subdued side.
    - Panasonic's Just aspect ratio setting does a great job of displaying an algorithmically balanced picture image.

  • Rating Unavailable

    - This technology makes sure that images stay crisp even during the intense movie and sport scenes.

  • Rating Unavailable

    - I'm sure this was mostly to make it easier for installers to program universal remotes or Crestron type systems.
    - Light output is excellent for a TV this size.
    - The scaler was able to pull a lot of information from DVDs, and created a very detailed image.
    - The TH-65VX100U is able to reproduce a 1-pixel on/1-pixel off pattern with both HDMI and component inputs, so resolution/detail with Blu-ray sources will be reproduced in all their glory.
