If you have a huge room to store it in and a healthy bank balance to pay for it, then the team at FiveFwd think that the 65-inch Panasonic TX-P65VT20 is well worth considering. With truly outstanding 2D performance and good 3D image quality, as well as internet connectivity, this massive device is a real eye-catcher, however there are occasionally some minor issues with image sharpness.

"stunning all-rounder" (5 out of 5 stars)

"Test Winner"

"FOR: Stable, spectacular 3D; punchy, vibrant 2D pictures; fine spec; good motion processing.
AGAINST: Some are crisper; occasional stutter; 3D could be brighter; 2D could go deeper."

The TX-P65VT20B may be scandalously priced and, like all plasma sets, it doesn't produce such a bright image as LCDs, but FiveFWD claimed that it's possibly the best 3D TV they've ever tested, partly due to its near lack of ghosting. The speakers are also surprisingly capable, and 2D pictures benefit inmensely from its impressive black levels and colours. Info: This product received the same score in this test most recent reviews in The Gadget Show.

The Viera TX-P65VT20 not only produces some of the most immersive and best-looking 3D pictures that Trusted Reviews have seen, but it's an awe-inspiring 2D performer too. Contrast is exceptional, colours are punchy and vivid and blacks are as deep as only a plasma TV can manage. If something can be said against it it's that it lacks some brightness, but that is par for the course with 3D screens, and right now they don't get much better than this.

Advantages of the Panasonic TX-P65VT20B include its massive display, brilliant image quality and strong sound performance, in the eyes of TechRadar, however, they felt the TV was not that stylish and noticed crosstalk-noise in 3D mode. However, they believe it offers incredible cinematic experience, and boasts the highest quality 3D images currently on TVs on the market.

The 3D glasses were uncomfortable, the remote control was cheap, and the digital media efforts were underwhelming. Otherwise Pocket-lint were very impressed with the TX-65VT20 calling it the most impressive large screen available. Its versatility and ability with Blu-ray and Freeview HD/Freesat HD made this plasma unbeatable for a top quality home cinema set-up, even if there are some issues with the 3D picture quality.

Value for money: “very good”, “Test Winner”

“A huge amount of picture and good sound for the price: When it comes to cinematic atmosphere and film enjoyment for the living room theatre, the Panasonic TX-P65VT20E has its nose in front - in 2D as well as in 3D. We congratulate it on its test victory!”
