Panasonic offers 3D entertainment for your home with their TC-P42GT25 3D Plasma HDTV with its 500 Hz subfield drive, Viera Cast content via wi-fi and native contrast ratio of 5 million:1. Chris Hardwick and Kevin Pereira take a look at the $1400 HD television.
What You Need to Know
The Panasonic 3D HDTV isn't the sleekest TV we've reviewed, as the trunk measures at 3.5" thin.
You could wall mount it since it has an HDMI input on the side.
Panasonic's streaming content through Viera Cast includes Amazon video, Twitter, Skype and a bunch of other widgets, which is a feature we would use.
The interface is much quicker than we remember, so navigating around the menu is pretty simple.
YouTube, Netflix and other widgets load fast and are what you expect them to be.
You do have to buy a dongle if you want the Wi-fi.
The TV's non-3D image quality if really good, featuring some of the more deeper blacks we've seen because of the infinite black contrast ratio.
Colors are very vibrant and accurate, but weirdly enough, you may see a little grain when you have the TV in brighter modes (like Vivid).
