New VIERA NeoPDP Plasma TV

Deep blacks and breathtaking clarity result in a more powerful viewing experience ideal for sports, movies and gaming. And because they also have Freeview HD built in, you’ll be able to catch the best of this summer’s High Definition sporting action subscription free, as well as your favourite soaps, dramas and documentaries in full HD glory.


Panasonic's VIERA NeoPDP plasma televisions feature breakthrough technology to bring deeper blacks and sharper pictures
NeoPDP - Continuing to Redefine Plasma Technology

Panasonic's VIERA NeoPDP is a breakthrough in plasma technology, featuring a range of innovations that bring every detail of life. The power behind NeoPDP is larger cell surfaces and improved phosphor mixtures of the display panel which ensure bright, true-to-life colours. What’s more, the cell’s pilot light has been minimised to achieve deeper blacks and higher contrast, while new & refined image processors bring out the very best of this ground breaking panel technology.
VIERA incorporates an improved panel production process and the new Real Black Drive system. A pre-discharge control system, the Real Black Drive system achieves next-generation black reproduction. When you're watching movies, VIERA renders images just the way the director intended, even in scenes where it's difficult to achieve a proper balance of light and dark.

Infinite Black

VIERA NeoPDP achieves an outstanding dynamic contrast ratio of over 5,000,000:1 to deliver the deepest black ever. This is especially important to accurately reproduce even subtle differences in the blackness level. Blacks are purer & whites brighter – giving sharper, more lifelike and 3-dimensional pictures.

600Hz Sub-field Drive with Intelligent Frame Creation Pro

To ensure smooth and judder-free pictures, VIERA NeoPDP employs innovative 600Hz Sub-field Drive with Intelligent Frame Creation Pro. This is a Panasonic's unique image-analysis processor that converts the motion in each scene into sub-fields. The sub-fields are then optimised to display fast action scene in Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution with amazingly smooth motion. Each frame is displayed for a shorter length of time than in previous processor - virtually eliminating unsightly smearing & after effects.


Panasonic's innovative image analysis processor gives you amazingly smooth and crisp motion, even in the fastest action scene
THX Certified Display

THX reproduces film images exactly as the film's creators intended them. The overall aim was to improve the experience of cinema-goers and faithfully recreate the audio and visual ambience that filmmakers intended. To receive THX certification, Panasonic's TVs undergo stringent tests to determine whether the exact same brightness and colour are displayed at all screen locations, and whether black levels satisfy standard criteria. VIERA meets the high standards set by the THX Certified Display Program.

View Photos from your SD Card

It's easy to view full-HD images with the SD card slot. Watch and show your photos and motion images right after you take them. Simply insert an SD Memory Card into VIERA to display photos and full-HD videos on the large screen. An easy-to-see, easy-to-use thumbnail display has also been added. You can also enjoy special background music, slideshow frames and transition effects.

Game Mode

In Game Mode, quicker image response increases the enjoyment of video games when a game console is connected to the TV. What's more, VIERA produces the dark images in video games more clearly. This mode works with the anti-image retention (wobbling) function, too.

VIERA Eco Link

VIERA Link uses the control signals that are transmitted through an HDMI cable for automated functions. Just press the VIERA Link button on the VIERA TV remote to control your entire Panasonic components including Home Cinema Systems, HD camcorder and Lumix digital cameras.
In 2009 the VIERA Link concept has been further developed, providing you even more functions. For example, Eco Link which helps you to save energy by putting all connected Panasonic devices into sleep mode when they are not used.


With VIERA Eco Link, you can connect and control all your Panasonic devices efficiently through your TV, without wasting power

Saving Energy with Eco Mode

As people become more aware about environmental concerns, the power consumption of their electronic products presents itself. To improve on the environmental impact of power consumption, Panasonic has introduced an Eco Mode as standard in most of its VIERA TVs. By activating the Eco Mode, a photo sensor measures the ambient light conditions of the room and the picture settings adjust automatically. As a result, the TV uses less power in darkly-lit conditions without any compromise of the picture quality.

Build to Resist – VIERA Tough Panel

Panasonic VIERA Plasma TVs are protected by a front sheet of glass resistant to impacts of up to four joules. This is particularly reassuring for families with small children who may otherwise inadvertently damage the screen when playing.
Also, the growing success of games consoles using motion controllers has led to an increase in TVs being accidentally struck and damaged by controllers which have slipped out of player’s hands. Thanks to VIERA plasma TVs’ Tough Panel you don’t need to worry. And what’s more, the protective panel makes cleaning easier too, simply wipe with a soft cloth when necessary.

Lower Power Consumption

With the NeoPDP panel, Panasonic has radically lowered the energy consumption of their TVs. NeoPDP televisions only need half as much energy as 2007 models to produce the same amount of brightness, doubling their efficiency. This has been made possible by expert engineers who have employed an improved luminous gas, larger cells and newly created electronic packaging. The result is an improvement in picture quality and eco-friendliness in equal measure.

Long-Life Design - up to 100,000 Hours of Viewing Enjoyment

Because a TV should have as little negative impact on the environment as possible, it must function for many years. That is why Panasonic Plasma TVs have been engineered to deliver an excellent viewing experience for up to an amazingly long 100,000 hours. So if you were to watch TV eight hours a day – that would be 30 years!

Panasonic lead-free Plasma TVs

Flat screen TVs that employ conventional technologies may contain a spot of harmful chemicals such as lead or mercury. These chemicals are then set free when the TV is taken to recycling at the end of its lifecycle. Already in 2006 and as the first manufacturer worldwide, Panasonic has completely eliminated the use of lead and mercury in their flat screen TVs.

I'm looking at this model but 32inch, the S20 says its 100hz but the G20 doesn't really say. Some reports suggests the G20 is only 50hz. Is this correct? I thought the G series is better :|

There is no 32 inch equivalent of this - the one you're looking at is for an lcd, whereas this is a plasma :)

Looks good.

Nice spec, how does the power consumption of these compare to a similar sized LCD?
#5
Nice!.
#6
I have the G10B, brilliant TV. This one is a steal at this price BUY BUY BUY!!!
#7
'Best in class' I completely agree, the only thing thats come near to these are the Pioneer Kuros, fantastic sets. Forget Sony and Samsung is just overrated
#8
The G20 is fantastic, i paid £745 from costco during the world cup (with 5 years warranty)

this is a steal at this price +1

It doesn't...plasmas can't compete with LCDs in this category but what a picture...loving mine..had it for about 9 months and it still surprises me with the quality in some HD broadcasts and Blurays...pricey but well worth it.

hi i have to disagree with the comment that plasmas cannot compete with lcd, these new 2010 plasma models use a similar amount of electricity to lcds.

dam, i just bought a second hand 42g15 for £450 yesterday.....

The G20 has 2 x USB sockets so you can record and pause live tv.

There is an issue with the G20 and the G10 losing ability to display blacks a year into their life. It's what put me off getting one in the end. You can read all about it on AV Forums.

Excellent price though, so hot from me.

indeed, plasmas have come on so much in that regard over the last 18 months. Not *quite* LCD efficiency (certainly not LED lit anyway), but close enough to not really be a show stopper these days imo.

if in doubt check the tech specs. iirc my 2009 LG plasma is only ~10W off their LCD of the time period.

Does this model have the prob where the blacks get lighter?

yup and still no feedback from panny c/s to counter it

Can you elaborate?

...and they flicker for about 15% of people. Again no response from Panasonic.
#20
it's called the panasonic rising blacks problem, see link below. I would say it's a deal breaker.

Panasonic are offering 5 years warranty with TV's untill the end of the month but i think you have to buy it from a approved retailer.

Thanks, that's quite useful.
#24
Hmmm its a tempter but think i'll wait for a similar deal on a 50" set instead.
#25
i have exhaustively checked many TV's out in recent days, and all the professsionals are rating this particular TV as very very good. As always, its recommended that you check the TV in a high st retailer (CURRYS do have this in stock and on display) before committing anything.

You may want to check out some of the professional reviews before moving forward with this.

Though you're likely to pay more in-store from an approved stockist I'd go for this.
#27
To upgrade the warranty to 5 years costs an extra 90 pound with Panasonic directly
#28
Ive got this TV, had it about 3 weeks and I honestly think its amazing.

Blueray, PS3 and even normal freesat are all superb through this TV!

Only annoying problem was it makes quite a loud buzzing noise that you can hear when volume on mute but that seems to be getting better.
#29
fantastic picture and good (let's not over egg it) price. I'd commit straight away except that I've only been impressed in-store and never seen it in-house. Concerns?
1) some folks see flicker (never seen this, but never seen it in MY viewing conditions)
2) buzzing - will it or won't it? dunno - won't risk it
3) rising blacks - If Panny customer services won't admit it then they won't fix it. Nuff said

Terrible shame - I'd snap it up otherwise - get your C/S act in gear Panny or it'll be Samsung or Sony!
#30
Looks good.

I picked up a similar Panasonic a few weeks ago for £499, but no FreeHD or Wifi. Very impressed though.
#31
so sorely tempted indeed!! this is scorching,don't think there's a better tv out there at a comparative price!!
#32
Rising blacks is a deal break for me. Why do I want a set that in a year is not as good as when I buy it now?! Even if I have 5 years Panasonic warranty - it means squat if they won't fix it. The problem is proven on the AvForum by TV calibrators so its not like a white elephant problem - its genuine!
#33
I bought this only 3 days ago for £666 (including the £40 off voucher they were doing at the time)

Will Amazon refund the difference?
#34
Home Theater: Panasonic Viera TC-P50G20 Plasma HDTV

After approximately 800 hours of total use to date, the black level on the set remains the same as measured at the 100 hour point; that is, 0.008 foot-Lamberts (with an occasional fluctuation down to 0.007 fL, depending on the black source pattern used for the measurement).
#35
That's such a shame Panasonic are not responding to these claims. Poor customer service will always kill a company.
#36
nice, but love my samsung, voted hot though!

The G20 has 2 x USB sockets so you can record and pause live tv.

You can only record and pause the TV' own signal, ie Freeview HD, Freesat HD. As I have just found out you CANNOT record from any other source. I wanted to record from my old sky box before ordering Sky HD but it's a no go. Daft really!

The price is dropping as I have been keeping an eye on this tv. Just found same price in Dixon with free delivery also.
