Panasonic TC-P0GT30 Video Transcript
-Hi there, I'm David Katzmaier from CNET and I'm with Panasonic TCP-GT30 series. This is Panasonic's second most expensive TV for 2011. When I first talked about this TV, I wasn't really impressed that it might be not quite worth the step up over the less expensive ST30 series, but now that I have a chance to check them both out, I think it's a really good performer and THX really helps. Like I said, THX is the big step up on this model. That's the reason why it cost more than the ST30. This TV also has a newly designed styling, so Panasonic when I had revamp, it's fabulous styling to kind catch up with competition. Around the edge, you can see the vessel between the screen and the edge of the frame. It's thinner than a lot of the other Panasonic TVs in the past about 1.5 inches deep. The panel itself is also around 2 inches deep if you include the speaker. So, I told it one of the more compact plasmas that Panasonic's ever produced. So, while the GT30 series isn't quite as sleek as some of the Samsung models out there, it's still one of the best-looking plasma TV Panasonic has ever produced. As I mentioned, THX has the feature set on the GT30, but beyond that, it also has the ability to access the internet via Panasonic's Viera connect feature. Viera connect, that's an apps store and a bunch of streaming services to Viera Cast from last year. We like the Viera connect interface. It's relatively simple and easy to find our way around. We also like the fact that a lot of the design is relatively simple aesthetic, so they are very unified look compared to some of the other app platforms out there. The downside, Netflix is still the old school interface that doesn't allow searches. A couple of the cooler apps include share cast for internet ray as well as the ability of the interface with Wi-Fi scale in case you wanna keep tracking you way around the TV. Picture settings on the GT30 are not quite as advanced as some of other TVs out there. You do get full control of gray scale as well as the other couple Gamma settings, but only when you are on the custom mode. THX with its excellent pre sets settings doesn't allow much tweaking beyond that. Also worth mentioning, the Panasonic could not follow Samsung's lead by throwing in 3 glasses with TVs. This model does not include any 3D glasses. You're gonna have to pay extra for them in about 130 bucks a pack right now. I told we found it lot alike about the picture quality to GT30. It has deep black level just as deep as Panasonic's TVs from last year aside from its flagship model. It also has the excellent uniformity and off angle characteristics of plasma as well as very good color performance. Thanks to THX. We're also surprise that it handled [unk] 24 correctly despite being only a 60 Hz model. On the downside, we did see some fluctuation on grey and black areas. We also noticed the gamma wasn't quite as accurate as last year, but I told still an excellent performer. We also like the 3D picture quality on this TV. Cross talk is minimal and the color was pretty darn good especially the THX will engage. Panasonic has ample inputs with 4 HDMI and 3 USB. There's also smothering of analog ports that require breakout cables for the TV so thin. Panasonic also includes the USB Wi-Fi dongles. You can get internet connection without having to connect the wire. That's a quick look at the Panasonic TCP-GT30. I'm David Katzmaier.
If you can live with its homely design, the excellent picture quality and feature set of the Panasonic TC-PST30 series combine to make it one of the best plasma TV values available.
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.
Although it does deliver excellent 2D picture quality, the 3D-compatible Panasonic TC-PGT25 series can't match the overall performance of the competition's best plasmas.
Excellent picture quality for the money makes the Panasonic TC-PS1 plasma the best value among large-screen flat panels.
Although its features can't compete with those of typical consumer plasmas, the pro Panasonic TH-50PH9UK's excellent picture quality and price make it the best value at this size, bar none.
Outstanding recording quality, tons of features, and a built-in digital TV tuner make the Panasonic DMR-EZ48VK an excellent all-purpose DVD and VHS recorder.
The Panasonic G10 plasmas are the company's middle-of-the-road television displays, which feature online video capabilities and high-quality THX certified video.
The Panasonic TC-PST50 plasma TV is our favorite TV of 2012, delivering the best picture quality for the money of any television we tested.
A nice all-around camera with a lens range and feature set that should please anyone on your list, and at a reasonable gift price, it's our top gift pick in the cameras and camcorders category.
Its 20x zoom lens might be the main attraction, but thanks to a healthy feature set, fast shooting, and nice photos and video, the ZS20 is all-around excellent.
