Out of the box, new 46 Inch VIERA 3D 600 Hz Plasma TV, Panasonic TX-P46GT30B, looks very nice and improves a lot over precious generation of plasma 3D TVs. It is more slim than its predecessors, and narrow bezel with double silver trim on edges makes this TV very appealing. But most impressive features of this TV are its hardware and software.

Lack of online features in last year models has been addressed very seriously, resulting in major improvements. Panasonic TX-P46GT30 allows usage of BBC iPlayer with both Freesat HD and Freeview HD tuners. Lineup of the Internet services includes, but is not limited to Acetrax movie rental, Skype, YouTube and Dailymotion. Media capabilities are not limited only to that: Panasonic TXP46GT30B allows streaming of media over DNLA from your computer, as well as ability to play media via 3 USB ports or SD slot. Finally, it allows you to connect a hard drive via USB to record shows. Connection options also include LAN-port, 4 HDMIs and PC D-sub input. Optional wireless adapter can be connected to one of the USB ports to allow usage of Wi-Fi network.

Not only media features of this TV are impressive, but so is its picture quality. Thanks to the new NeoPlasma screen, TV provides 5,000,000:1 contrast ratio, which allows impressive black levels, as well as vibrant colours, and overall HD picture looks stunning. SD signal can also be made much better through upscaling. Onscreen motion is crisp and clean because of new 600Hz Sub-field Drive combined with Intelligent Frame Creation Pro technology. Gaming possibilities are unlimited with just 18 ms lag, lack of low-level dot noise common in other plasma TVs and free viewing angle, unlike LCD/LED TVs.

Even more impressive effect is achieved with 3D picture. Panasonic Viera TXP46GT30 builds on plasma TV leadership in 3D technology to deliver stunning experience. Videos displayed by this TV do not suffer from 3D cross-talk issue, which makes them clear and realistic. Additionally, higher brightness allows better quality and vibrant colours when using the active-shutter glasses. Another interesting feature is ability to adjust depth of 3D images in case you do not like their initial looks. Finally, this TV can convert 2D images to 3D relatively well considering technological problems associated with such feature.

Audio quality of Panasonic TXP46GT30 will not disappoint anyone. While this TV is quite thin for a plasma, it still has more powerful speakers than most of other slim TVs, housed in the little thickening at the bottom of the TV set. Distortions are not encountered even at very loud levels, and bass is quite satisfactory.

If you are interested in buying a very well-rounded TV, look no further than this new 46 Inch VIERA 3D 600 Hz Plasma TV. This state of art TV provides everything which can be expected from a new 3D TV and even more: clean and crisp picture for both SD and HD media sources, incredible 3D images, variety of connectivity options, Freeview and Freesat HD Digital Tuners and even USB HDD recording. Rarely you can find such a combination of state of art features in a single piece of technology, and thus Panasonic Viera TXP-46GT30B offers one of the best deals for 3D TVs so far.
