Yeah sure, it is issue 210, August 2012 page 53 but is was a comment on the weight reduction in general of this years range they make, which is what I thought you were talking about - The Prince of Darkness Returns review.
Well, I must need new glasses (perhaps I should get 3D ones, ho-ho!) because I can't seem to see any mention in that article about weight loss (of the 2012 TVs compared with the 2011 TVs). About improved energy efficiency, yes. But no matter. It's good enough that the VT50 series (according to Panasonic's own PDF brochures about the various series) is indeed lighter than the VT30 series. A similar comparison can't easily be made for the 65" ST50 series compared to its predecessor because last year the ST30 series didn't go up to 65" (at least not in Britain, though it did in America).
You have probably read the St50 review then too in issue 208 - two great reviews.
Indeed so, gel, as is the one of the Panasonic TX-P65ST50 on page 62 of the September 2012 What Hi-Fi issue!
Skinny instead of bulky p53 first couple of paragraphs.
Main AV Setup: Panasonic 50VT65 TV (THX calibrated), Pioneer Bdp-lx71, Pioneer Vsx-lx70, B&W FPM Series, B&W PV1, Optimum AV300 AV Stand, QED Silver Anniversary XT Speaker Cable & Chord Silver Plus HDMI Cables. Gadgets: iPad 4 & iPhone 4S.
Ah, so. Skinny, for a TV, doesn't necessarily mean lightweight, but enough already! You win, boo-hoo!

We got there.
Are you going to buy a Panasonic then?
Well, at 1pm my subscription copy of the September 2012 issue of What Hi-Fi was lying on my mat! I'm so pleased that What Hi-Fi joins the other expert reviewers in liking muchly the Panasonic ST50 series plasma TV, in this particular case the 65" size. That will be my Christmas present to me.
Ah nice one! What are you going to wait till Christmas or buy it now? Stock seems to be quite low still for current range.
