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 has a native 1080p display (1920 x 1080), and is capable of playing all NTSC formats.
The Panasonic TC-P42GT25 is a plasma TV, and as such, it has a great viewing angle. We measured this particular TV's viewing angle at 139 degrees in total (69 degrees from center on either side). Though the performance is slightly less wide than the Panasonic TC-P50VT20, both far exceed a standard LCD display.
The Panasonic TC-P42GT25 has a screen that's not very good at staving off reflection. If a light is shining directly at the screen, you'll see a wide, diffuse glow. It washes out shadows and colors, crippling the already middling contrast ratio.
The Panasonic TC-P42GT25 has a handful of settings which might make some small improvements in picture quality.
