"Editor's Choice"

Panasonic's Viera TX-P55VT30B certainly doesn't come cheap, but aside from that, CNET struggled to find anything else to complain about. For your money, you get fantastic Internet and media-streaming features, impressive audio, and brilliantly detailed 2D and 3D images that boast beautiful colours and excellent contrast. All in all, it's one of the best TVs money can currently buy.

Brilliantly built and delivering fantastic cinematic pictures on its 55in screen, TechRadar say the Panasonic TX-P55VT30B is the best plasma domestic TV they've seen yet. 3D performance is bright and free of crosstalk, colours and blacks are rich but subtle, and HD images are impressively sharp and well-detailed, but they would really appreciate a 3D picture preset.

Value for money: 8 out of 10 points, "Recommended"

Not only does this superbly concieved television display stunning 3D images, but the 2D quality is also excellent. The Multimedia functions also impressed Trusted Reviews. There are some issues with 50Hz judder and images that are calibrated are not as bright as they could be. The price tag is also rather high, but since when did such quality and innovation come cheap?
