4.0 out of 5 stars It took a lot of research but this is the best for the money, 10 Jan 2010

This review is from: Panasonic TX-P42G15B 42-inch Widescreen Full HD 1080p Plasma TV with Freesat HD (Installation Recommended) & Viera Cast (Electronics)
Where to start, well with the picture of course because to be honest that is the reason we buy the TV in the first place. So I am no expert on all the finer technical details but the picture in simple terms is amazing, crystal clear and really sharp. The colours are vibrant. Everyone always goes on about how black the black is, well all I can say on this is the black is black. If you do have a satellite Dish, watching the free to view HD channels is just amazing, and as a result convinced me that it is worth £10 a month for SKY HD. Can you really see the difference between standard and HD, oh yes. Another key feature with this set is the Neopdp, or in simple terms being able to see a well defined fast moving object rather than a blur or odd shape. So again from a simple perspective it really does work, watching football and F1 are just fantastic, however it was whilst watching James May showing how fast a scalextric car could go with the magnets that really showed how well this system works. If you did not see it, he had a car going around in a circle and just upped the speed until it came off. At no point did the car look blurred or oddly shaped.

Now about the sound, its good but not great. So I invested in a Panasonic cinema 5.1 system, in the sales, worth every penny. Now I have a great picture and a great sound. No it is better than that unbelievable sound and picture.

Should you by the G15 over the G10. Well for me it has three extra features and you can make your own mind up.
1. It has a SD card slot, so you can view your pictures directly from the card, no more messing about burning disks etc.
2. You can conect your PC directly to the TV. Not tried this yet so not surehow often I will use this
3. You can connect the TV to teh internet, as it needs an ehternet cable, and the TV is not near my router.

So to sum up, I spent 6 months deciding which HD TV to buy, and everything I read pointed to Panasonic. I have now had the TV for a month and I have to say everyone who said buy a Panasonic was correct. I will therefore add my own voice to that list. Buy the Panasonic TX-P42G15. Just one last thing I paid less than £800 and it is even cheaper now, so Amamzon, ouch come on guys you are usually leading the way.
