Manufacturer's Description

Full-HD Plasma TV with Superb Picture Quality and Advanced Networking Capabilities
The 600Hz Sub-field Drive* in VIERA plasma TVs teams up with Intelligent Frame Creation Pro technology to deliver smooth, fluid, on-screen motion. By using an intelligent algorithm within the picture processing based on motion detection, the best combination of frames is created to deliver ultra crisp sports, film and game action. *When using Cinema mode

Infinite Black enables VIERA to display extremely robust blacks. A new filter and enhanced cell performance have greatly increased luminous efficiency to produce crisp blacks. And minimising the electrical pre-discharge helps to both raise contrast and save energy.

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, TVs undergo stringent tests to determine, for example, 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.

VIERA Connect allows users to enjoy video and music, sports, games, and a variety of other content in addition to the standard movies and TV programmes on a high-quality large-screen TV through the simple operation of a remote control. The cloud-based Internet service also supports interactive services using applicable equipment as well as an Internet-based shopping function that allows such equipment to be purchased straight from the TV.

You can easily record your favourite TV programmes, films and other content onto an external USB hard disk drive. Recordings can be easily controlled using VIERA's remote control. And Rew Live TV function for USB HDD recording lets you rewind a live TV programme to catch the scenes you want to see, so you won't miss important moments.

The VIERA G30 Plasma TV series includes a DVB-T2 tuner for Freeview HD providing you with a convenient, subscription free way of watching HD contents like sport, as well as your favourite soaps, dramas and documentaries in full HD glory wherever you are in the UK (Please ensure that Freeview HD coverage is available in your local area before using this TV).

Thats cheap!

Local House of Fraser has it @ £899.99, pricey, but has 5 year warranty plus Pana Blu-ray and a HDMI included. Lots of good deals around though.

That's a great price and it no doubt has a suberb image quality.
But my concern is that my living room gets lots of sunlight in the afternoon, so I'm worried that I may suffer from glare, I'm currently with a LED 32" and it's okay with the glare, but does anyone knows how the sunlight will hurt the picture quality with this Plasma?

I love plasmas but the glare they have is crazy! In a dark scene, during the day, you'll see yourself sitting there and that sometimes upsets me thinking I really need to exercise more.

My 50" G10 has just blown up! It's only 13 months old, so now I'm not so sure how reliable Panasonic's are. :(

Panasonic's have a tough glass front and these reflect light quite a lot in a sunny room.

Shouldn't have any problems with reflections on these as Panasonic from the G20 onwards the reflection is probably superior to quite a lot of the LCD's.
#11
The previous year's G20 is a great tv. But you need to turn on the eco mode which will increase brightness in bright viewing conditions and vice versa. The diferences between this and the G20 are minor-panasonic have put more focus on higher end 3d models this year given the higher margin...

Advantages over V20:
-G14 panel (motion supposed to be better)
-Made an inprovement to the IFC processing (which most turn off anyway)
-Using better short stroke Phosphorus that were on all 2010 3D models
-DolbyPulse/dts2.0/dts Digital Out
-MP4 [Xacti]/DivXPlusHD/WMV//WMA playback) (MKV`s here i come..)
-3 USB sockets instead of 2
-EPG for DVB-T (7days)
-PC input via DVI
-Uses 30% less power (very handy)
-Viera Connect

Disadvantages:
-No Freesat tuner
-No pro filter
-No wireless built in

Looking at the advantages/disadvantages If you're happy with the V20 i'd say stick with it.
