Panasonic TX-P42ST60B review

 Review: May 2013  

Rating: 5 stars

In a nutshell: Panasonic's Viera TX-P42ST60B delivers the best picture quality you can buy for 900. It also includes excellent Smart TV and audio quality.



This is the 42 inch version of the Panasonic TX-P50ST60B that we reviewed previously, so read our review of that for all the details. In summary, this is perhaps the best picture quality you will get from any TV for £900. Need we say more? OK, then - it's the ideal TV for everything from standard definition content to Blu-Ray and also includes excellent Smart TV functionality including YouTube and the BBC iPlayer. Connectivity is excellent, with built-in Wi-Fi and Freeview HD included. Even audio quality is above average. Highly recommended!

Just bought this. Very pleased. Had an old Panasonic CRT that was starting to look embarrassing. Looked at cheaper sets in superstores. Was not impressed with any LCD screen. Went into Panasonic shop who accepted that they just don't cut it, but added that plasma also suffer with any signal less than 10/10. However, plasma don't pixelate with fast movement. LCD do. I paid 800 with a free cable so not bad from a franchise shop. Glad I went for plasma and glad I forked out for this as the colours are gorgeous without being painful at the lighter end. No pixelating. However some Haziness on non hd channels given 8/10 signal strength that I achieve. Can't wait to try blue ray and...match of the day tonight! May fork out for freesat to try and get the most out of it.

Summary, very pleased but some fuzziness on some channels due to less than perfect freeview reception. But that's not the tv,s fault. Just a warning that an expensive tv doesn't mean amazing pictures on freeview.

You can now buy it from Richer Sounds for 600.

Bought one from a Panasonic shop for 699, which they reduced from 849.
It replaced a Sony 30" CRT (which I gave to charity as it worked well).
I only use the Pana on HD as SD is rubbish on bigger screens where my house is.
Only thing I don't like is that the picture goes very dark when I stand next to it looking down, which CRTs & older plasmas don't seem to do.
Maybe I'll buy back the Sony...the Pana also has no SCART ports!!!!!!!
