Front


From the front, TC-P65VT25 looks like a normal television. It has a glossy black bezel that that is about an inch and a half wide.

  • Without the glasses, HD video looks like a blur on the TC-P65VT25. *

Back**


All of Panasonic's TC-P65VT25 TVs were mounted on the wall, so we couldn't get a good shot of the back for any of these plasma screens. If we had to guess what was back there, we'd probably say a lot of black plastic and a couple of ports.

**

Sides**


The P65VT25 is fairly thin, but with so many ultra-thin TVs being showcased at CES this year, it really didn't look very special. The controls for the TV are located on its left side, along with a collection of ports.

  • The left side has controls

    and a few ports.

Stand/Mount**


As we said before, all of the TC-P65VT25s on display at CES were mounted, so we never got a good look at what the TV's stand looks like. We must say, the TVs looked quite good mounted on the wall.

 

** Aesthetics**


The TC-P65VT25 doesn't have a fancy or unique design, but its simple look is rather stylish. The screen has a rectangular shape (obviously) and is surrounded by a glossy, black bezel. Since the controls are all located on the left side of the TV, there aren't any buttons mucking up the flat, glossy front of the bezel.
