Impressive black levels and brightness
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.
Immersive and crosstalk-free 3D
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.
Full HD performance
Panasonic's latest and greatest and largest 3D plasma TV is excellent when paired with a high quality Blu-ray player, for both 2D and 3D movies. It's not even especially expensive given its huge screen size. Its internal digital TV tuner isn't very good though, so we'd recommend pairing it up with a TiVo or other high quality PVR. In addition, a few other questionable video quality changes since last year's VT20 mean that the VT30 isn't better in every way.
Huge 65 in screen.
With the P65VT30, Panasonic has delivered the single most 'serious' home cinema television money can currently buy. Yes, you might spot the occasional irritation along the way, but for the vast majority of your viewing time the biggest problem you're likely to have is the puddle of drool that keeps appearing at your feet.
Great 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.
as its noise reduction capabilities are quite solid.

Impressed With EVERYTHING - A Gamer's Review
-Be sure to note that the screen and bezel are both GLOSSY, Some people are bothered by this but I personally think it looks great!
This has been rated 4 out of 5 stars because of the pixel problems with the original unit, though I fully recommend this set now that I have one of proper quality.
