Bought one of these TVs around a month ago after also weighing up alternatives from LG and Samsung. Opted for the Panasonic with a free 6yr guarantee, a blu-ray player and two pairs of 3d specs. Am absolutely delighted with my purchase - great picture via Freeview, Freeview HD, blu ray (both 2D and 3D) and for gaming with an Xbox360. The TV also looks fantastic and like all Panasonic stuff, is very well made and easy to use. Only slight criticism is the sound, which sounds more lightweight than the 32'' Panasonic TV that this replaces, which also featured SRS TruSurround XT. The sound on this TV was better than the alternative LG and Samsung sets I tried, however, so my sense is that as TVs get slimmer and more compact, it is the sound quality that is sacrificed.
Yes,short but sufficient advice for potential buyers and panasonic fans alike.Good to see panasonic at the top of their game again.IMO the vt20 was shockingly bad for SD,along with the annoying flicker.This sort of quality is what will spur the other co's,to follow suit.Nice 1 panasonic!
No doubt the panny gt30 is an amazing TV. I do have an old PX80 in my bedroom and am very satisfied with it. If only pointing out the very high power consumption (198W in THX mode so far). Nodoby seems to care about this and even panasonic, every year, claims that their new models are more and more greener. But regarding power consumption, I am afraid that this model performs not better than my old PX80 in 2D, not to say if you switch to 3D.
Please what-hifi, when you consider value against cost of any TV, could you also include the pounds spent in the whole life cycle of the set (due to power consumption)? At least in Spain the pricing of electricity has almost doubled in the last years, and will very likely continue this way in the near future.
Thanks and kind regards

The large screen and punchy picture are highly attractive for this price, but you’ll have to forego the smart features and Full HD resolution
A decent effort from Boston Acoustics, but it’s nothing remarkable
This stunning and feature-laden Samsung is one of the best TV bargains we’ve seen
