Panasonic Viera plasma TV reviews

We look at Panasonic's most recent Viera Full HD plasma televisions and share our thoughts

Ever since Pioneer stopped selling televisions in Australia, Panasonic has been hailed as one of the top producers of high quality plasma TVs. From low priced entry-level models to high end cinema-standard sets, and with screen sizes ranging from 42in to 65in, Panasonic has plasma televisions to suit everyone's needs. We walk you through the range of Panasonic Viera plasma TVs.

Panasonic Viera TH-P42G10A plasma television

RRP: $1799

Although it was released last year, you can still find the 42in Panasonic Viera TH-P42G10A plasma television on store shelves. It doesn't have many advanced features and its picture quality isn't as good as 2010 models, but it is still a good-looking television that's available for a great price.

What's Hot: Decent design, great black levels, realistic colours

The Final Word: The 50in Panasonic Viera TH-P50G10A is a great choice if you're after a plasma television. It costs less than Pioneer’s plasmas but offers very similar picture quality and a modern design, as well as a few extras that may sway digital media enthusiasts.

RRP: $3099

Another 2009 release, the Panasonic Viera TH-P50V10A is a step up from the G10 model with a thin design and a THX picture mode that optimises the picture for movie viewing. If you don't want to buy a more expensive 2010 model Panasonic plasma, you'll be able to find the V10 series plasma for a great price.

What's Hot: Thin body is good for wall mounting, movie-optimised THX mode

The Final Word: This large-screen plasma television has a body that's only 2in thick, a THX mode that optimises picture quality for movie watching, and a range of cinema-quality picture enhancements.

What's Hot: Thin and stylish design, perfect for wall-mounting, great picture quality even with wireless transmission, great speakers

The Final Word: Panasonic's Viera TH-P54Z1A plasma television is the pinnacle of 2009 plasma television design. It's only an inch thick, and it has wireless Full HD 1080p streaming and a very high quality plasma panel. Apart from its wallet-bashing price tag, the Panasonic TH-P54Z1A is a great unit.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
