The Panasonic TX-P65VT20B is quite simply one of the best 3D TVs available in the market today. The Panasonic 3D plasma TV is also the company’s first 3D TV which only makes its accomplishment that much wondrous. 3D is now right up there with other innovative products like touch screen LCDs. Ever since Avatar made its big entry to world cinemas everywhere, the need for 3D has sky rocketed. Everything from mobiles to television jumped on to the whole 3D bandwagon. But many failed miserably. Their attempt at capitalizing on the latest trend went right down the tube because they didn’t make a quality product. But all that changed with the entry of TVs like this one.
The Panasonic TX-P65VT20B offers both freeview HD and freesat tuners to get you a lot of non subscription HD channels. The interface is simple and quite ugly to look at. But it is extremely simple to navigate through the various options. One of the bad points about this set is that there are ads running in the channel listing space. These ads cannot be disabled and can be quite an inconvenience at times. But if you can bear the flashing ads, you won’t find a better Panasonic 3D plasma TV or any 3D TV for that matter.
Another cool feature of the Panasonic TX-P65VT20B is that it is DNLA compliant. It comes with an Ethernet port or an optional wireless dongle to play content from other networked devices. It also supports various video file formats like AVI, HD MKVs and DiVX whereas only the Mp3 format will be recognized for music files. It also provides you the ability to go online to Panasonic’s Viera Cast service portal.
The Panasonic TX-P65VT20B is extremely stylish and will go with pretty much any décor you can throw at it. It also has a nice brown finish which lends a certain air of sophistication. The appearance along with its features easily makes it the best Panasonic 3D plasma TV to date. The image quality is just brilliant but you will need to play around with the settings to utilize its full potential as the standard setting isn’t that great. Skin tones look great on this TV and the colors have a very natural feel to them.
The 3D performance of the Panasonic TX-P65VT20B is easily the best in the market today. The screen also has a 600Hz refresh rate which lessens the amount of ghosting. 3D games played on this telly offer an unparalleled sense of virtual reality as you get completely immersed into the visual and audio aspects of the game world. Along with the set you also get two pairs of active shutter glasses. While they are not exactly the pinnacle of comfortability, they do look very futuristic. The Panasonic TX-P65VT20B comes at a whopping price of 4,800 Pounds but considering the unparalleled 3D viewing experience, it is quite worth it.
