Panasonic TC-P42GT25 3D Plasma HDTV Review
The TC-P42GT25 slightly underperforms compared to the VT20 series we reviewed earlier this year.
The Panasonic TC-P42GT25 did very well at maintaining a consistent color temperature. Steady as a rock. More on how we test color temperature.
The Panasonic TC-P42GT25 also did rather well in the RGB color curve test. If you look at the chart below, you can see that the curves are relatively smooth and that the red, green, and blue channels move in unison. There's clearly some rough spots when the green channel gets bright – we'd expect to see some color banding there. However, we're impressed with the level of detail the TV maintained in both shadows and highlights. More on how we test RGB curves.
Below are digital recreations of the data above. You can see the Panasonic TC-P42GT25's performance against three similar TVs, as well as an ideal response curve.
