The Panasonic TX-P42GT50 will for many, represent the ultimate value in terms of a beautifully styled, 42 inch screen size, complete with full 3D capability in a 1080P, High Definition, Neo Plasma TV format and measuring just 4.7 centimetres thick, its sleek, metallic frame combines with the ultimate movie grade picture quality standard of THX 3D to provide a class of flat screen, HDTV viewing which almost certainly produces a TV experience to reign supreme, atop not just the entire plasma landscape but also over pretenders from the LED realm.

Continuing with the excellent ST50 series’ contrast of 5.5 million to 1, the TXP42GT50B plasma manages to somehow work miracles by not only doubling that series of TVs’ already impressive quota of shading gradations (and showcasing the great advantages of its Infinite Black Pro filtering [see the ST50B reviews]) in order to finally outdo the phenomenal black registers last seen with 9th generation, Pioneer KURO plasma TVs because as well, using a field drive focussed at 2500 hertz, Panasonic have established a refresh rate which guarantees an industry leading ability for ensuring rapid motion (action sequences in movies and sports, especially) is presented with a natural motion flow unmatched by any other manufacturer’s set.

It doesn’t end there, however since the 42GT50 showcases the complete range of Smart VIERA Engine Pro processing: Vivid Colour Creation (for optimized colour saturation) and the Web Smoother feature (aligns the observed quality of internet streamed content to the standard of less compressed video sources, e.g. DVD ) are augmented by additional, sophisticated process routines so that pictures edges are perceived as crisp but not jagged (via pure image creation,) skin pigmentation seems more realistic (via facial retouch) and (via pure direct 1080p) colour tonalities are as true to the original master recording or broadcast as possible.

The THX 3D certificate licensed by THX labs is perhaps the most significant signpost to highlight the TX-P42GT50B HDTV’s commitment to the maintenance of the very highest quality picture possible: selecting THX mode instantly defaults all picture variables (including calibration detail) to a global standard observed by the vast majority of film studios and the result (especially with blu ray and other high definition movie film transmissions, e.g. Film4 HD and Sky Movies HD) is nothing short of sensational.

Additionally, there is a Freesat HD tuner alongside the standard Freeviw HD tuner pack, users of the TX-P42GT50 plasma TV can enjoy a secondary source of free high def TV, via the Astra satellite which is ideal for customers keen to abandon satellite subscription services or perhaps, consumers located in remote areas where signal quality or strength is at a premium.

The 42 inch GT50 series plasma screen sports all the social media, web browsing, WiFi networking and communication (Skype) benefits of the Panasonic VIERA Connect menu and a convenient Multitasking function, allowing easy, simultaneous, multi tab manipulation of numerous, open apps – avoiding the necessity to continuously open and close when wishing to flick between resources.

In summary, the Panasonic TX-P42GT50B is about as good as larger screened, high end flat panel, 3D, Full HDTV gets and even though there are increasingly strident voices proclaiming the demise of plasma under the wheels of the LED juggernaut, GT50 plasma TV quality and functionality of this calibre forces you to conclude otherwise and when not long ago, you would have had to raise £2000 or so to get anywhere near this, the fact that our site can deliver it for a fraction of this and at the lowest price in the UK, should encourage you to purchase the best – happy shopping.
