Panasonic TH-65VX100E Reviewed

Panasonic TH-65VX100EThe Panasonic TH-65VX100E is by no means an average HDTV, and more of a special or even nearly unique HDTV. Many people would consider an HDTV of 40-inches or so and more to be large, well, at least until they see the massive 65-inch TH-65VX100E. The huge, glorious 65-inch plasma HDTV may not be alone in it’s huge size, but the Panasonic TH65VX100E commands a equally as large £8,000 price tag, at this price the HDTV must be something rather special.

Calling the Panasonic 65VX100E an HDTV is a little push also, or more of a screen, as there are no speakers and no tuner. So how can a “screen” demand such a sky high price tag? Well, the full HD / 1080p HDTV / screen boast a 1920×1080 resolution and a very impressive 60,000:1 native contrast ratio. Not “dynamic” as achieved by simply dimming the backlight.

Not having a tuner is not a big problem, some other highend sets, such as some Pioneer models are they same. Many people what TV via a Sky / HD Box, or external tuner, along with their blu-ray etc players. The design of the Panasonic TH-65VX100E is impressive with a nice thin and stylish frame, which doesn’t add any extra size to the HDTV. TrustedReviews gave the TH-65VX100E 10/10 for image quality and 9/10 over all, saying, it’s actually quite hard to put into words just how profound an impact the 65VX100E’s combination of colour subtlety and total clarity has on pictures you’ve seen a million times before. So astounding was the sense of solidity, precision, depth and total naturalism I experienced while watching this screen.  So impressive are the Panasonic TH-65VX100E’s black levels that they deserve to at least be mentioned in the same breath as those of Pioneer’s legendary KURO screens. And you can’t say fairer than that.
