Panasonic has done it. This 50-inch plasma TV is a true home cinema heavyweight, in every sense of the word. The Panasonic TX-P50VT30B's backbreaking setup, however, is worth it for one of the most delectable performances of the year in our test rooms. The TX-P50VT30B is the TV screen that cements Panasonic's reputation as the king of 2D plasma, and a similar position awaits it for 3D trickery, too. It's obvious right from the start that this is something special; the build quality is second to none, and the use of a single sheet of glass across the front of a very slim panel puts is above the likes of Samsung and Sony in the style stakes. Looks-wise, the only slight minus is the rather wide bezel around the picture, which stretches to an 'enormous' 45mm - not huge, admittedly, but nothing on the single-figure measurements of Samsung's LED TVs such as the UE40D5520. That's plasma tech for you, but there are so many more pluses to recommend this screen above any other 50-incher.Chief of which is the way the Panasonic TX-P50VT30B handles 3D images.
Panasonic is busy updating its VT range of televisions, and today's VT30 is the successor to the five-star VT20 from last year. The picture quality hasn't really changed much from one generation to the next: it's as impressive as ever in both 2D and 3D. Instead, Panasonic has put a lot of work into improving the design of its 2011 collection. The new look is very attractive, especially now that the frame has been slimmed from 9 cm on the VT20 to just 5 cm here. Let's take a closer look. Like the VT20, the VT30 uses a Full NeoPDP plasma with Infinite Black Pro technology to ensure incredibly deep blacks. Next up is 3D compatibility and a whole range of other features and tools, including four HDMI inputs, videoconferencing from Skype and an Internet connection using Ethernet or WiFi to access Panasonic's online services or content on your DLNA network. There's also motion interpolation, THX 2D and 3D, a digital PVR and a media player that you can use via the USB port. The media player, though, isn't that much use, as it can't handle devices formatted using NTFS and not many video formats are supported either.
