cnet Reviews Panasonic’s GT30 PDP
Last years GT25 was a decent set, but the general consensus was that it straddled unnatural space between the G25 and VT25 with a price that wasn’t quite right given the feature set. With a year to correct that, maybe 2011 is the GT30’s time to shine.
Panasonic has consistently been among our favorite televisions over the last few years, both at the high-end level and the lower–the latter due to historically excellent picture-quality-for-the-buck. The GT30 sits in the upper middle-end, a notch below the company’s 2011 flagship in panel technology and, we assume, picture quality. It’s not without its flaws, but it’s still a superb TV overall that sets the bar high once again, and outperforms its step-down linemate, the ST30 series (review coming soon), with better black levels and color. The Panasonic TC-PGT30 series belongs on the short list for buyers who want the advantages of plasma but don’t want to pay the premium for a flagship TV.
