I bought the 42 inch G20 after reading extensive reviews elsewhere and am absolutely thrilled .

Without boring you to death with all technical comment that is freely available on the net I just thought I would say that this set is superb.

Freeview SD is stunning. I watched saving private ryan last night and the depth of the picture is amazing.

I like plasma as its not in your face like LCD,or as sharp and colours seem more natural.

Blue ray is gobsmackin and even upscaled normal DVD's like Lord of the Rings are amazing.

Sport in HD fabulous

Sound is OK though to get the best you need a designated AV system

One thing I do notice is that it chucks a lot of heat out, dont need a fire anymore.

All in all a great buy stop agonising and buy one

Christmas 2010. No regrets. The picture is deeper and natural. Sport excellent. None of the problems mentioned on forums elsewhere, buzzing, flaoting blacks, posterisation etc. Just a cracking TV. Wish I had waited for the price drop and bought the 46 or 50 inch, small complaint though

Great TV, Stunning picture on Virginmedia and Freesat, I can also record Freesat to PVR plus 2 recordings to VBox and watch another channel at the same time,great value, especially compared to G20 LCDs, which I was going to buy before I noticed this one.loads of features and adjustments. eg it will turn off the screen if you are listening to radio, so saving power and screen burn, easy setup and assembly. highly recommended.

This is the best TV in this price range and is likely to remain so until Panasonic release an updated model next year. I calibrated and reviewed one of these for a pro review site and was delighted with the final result. The NeoPDP panel means you'll get blacks, motion clarity, and viewing angle that LCDs can't touch, plus the THX picture preset means you can have good quality images straight out of the box without further setup. After a few days of heavy usage, the colour on the TV I reviewed measured almost exactly according to TV mastering standards and has remained so since.

Since you can buy Plasma TVs this good at this price, forget LCD and "LED" (LED TVs are LCD displays with a different means of illuminating the picture, they are not a brand new technology, so don't be suckered into paying top dollar (top pound?) for one). This display completely smokes the contrast and black level (which are responsible for the "richness" of the picture), the colour accuracy, the viewing angle, and the motion clarity of any LCD. Furthermore, Panasonic's Plasmas do not have any of the image retention problems that some of the cheaper brands do, so you don't have to worry. If you're scared of Plasma TV because you've been drip-fed scare stories by the kids at your local box-shifting electronics store, then frankly, get over it or miss out!

The Hard Drive PVR feature is also very cool - hook up a USB hard disk to the TV and you can set the TV up to record TV programmes onto it for later viewing. Consider the cost of PVRs on their own and then consider that this TV essentially has one built in...

Also, the TV supports Freesat HD and the brand new Freeview HD.

Great product highly recommended. Only problem is amazon does not give the free 5 year guarantee that shops are offering for these models. Would have bought else where had I known this beforehand.

The bottom line is that this is a fine TV that fully merits the general praise that has been heaped upon it already. However I do have a few comments that may be of interest to potential buyers, and, I would like to think that Panasonic may read these reviews and consider the comments. My reason for only awarding four stars is primarily concerned with the USB HDD recording facility. It works exactly as Panasonic says it will, and that is my concern. It would appear extraordinary that a TV that has three tuners... (Freeview/Freesat/Analogue) will not allow you to record one channel using say Freeview and watch a different channel using one of the other two tuners. Yes it would involve more hardware/cost, but not excessively. I fear it has been restricted in this manner to protect Panasonics own range of PVRs. Interestingly, the Which magazine implies in their review of the TX-P42G20, that if recording to the USB HDD then you will have to change to one of the other tuners in order to watch a different channel. Well, I certainly cannot fathom how to do that. I also had considerable trouble with a brand new Samsung Story Station 1.5TB USB 2.0 External Hard Drive. After switching the TV to standby, the HDD would shut down correctly after about 90 secs. However, turning the TV back on after say one hour, the HDD would not be recognised and as far as the TV was concerned there was no HDD attached! Unplug/plug the USB cable and all was well again. Thinking this was a fault on the Samsung I obtained a replacement, only to find exactly the same problem. I have now swapped over the Samsung with my WD Book USB HDD from my computer and now both work faultlessly.Read more ›
