Panasonic has always made the best TV's (panels) and this one will go up there with the best, simple, the Panasonic "brand" has never had any issues other than standing up for the best quality available.
First of all i like to say im getting very annoyed that this tv is losing awards stars and getting negative reviews just because of the bloody price , i make a very comfortable living and wether i spend 2,3 or4 grand is up to me .somebody right now is buying a 25grand 4k tv with absolutly no content to play on it(except those daft 4k remastered sony releases that are blu ray anyway).right ok the calibrators at the value electronics show side by side said the vt60 and zt60 are pretty much the same but it still came out on top.i dont have the space for a 65inch panel and i dont think the gt or the vt is being released in a 60 inch panel .the people that buy the flagship tvs at 60 65 etc are gonni be BIG movie and sport fans who will have a 5.1 or 7.1 system or in my case the yamaha ysp 2200 soundbar .4grand to watch emerdale on standard definition using the tv speakers now thats nuts.
A couple of points..... mmm...
1.I wish Panasonic finally, find the peace within itself and stop beating itself up having been in the shadow of the Pioneer kuro for so long. It has been fanatically trying to prove a point while the division is sinking! Bonkers.
2. A totally out of time and place TV, and at the price it is only an 1080p TV.
3a.Stop obsessing with the Black levels....the levels of Blacks are good enough in the Tvs of today. The public say so not critics.
3bContrast still isn't right for the price......
4.TV looks ridiculously bland for a 4k price tag...
5.The place to put it is in a Museum of Plasma TV.
6.Completey out of touch with public sentiment as to what 4k should be...it aren't this! It proves my point in the main forum that Panasonic has an TV 'image' making problem'
If any thinks the price is worth paying over a 4k resolution Tv then you need to see a psychiatrist.....
There can only be one format: - Vhs vs Betamax - VHS wins; Blu Ray vs HD DVD - Blu Ray wins;LED vs Plasma - LED (sells and screen popularity world wide.)
How do you mean that Panasonic has an "image" making problem??
DO You mean it has a problem with its company Image?
THAT would be of its own making (IMHO) how many customers has it annoyed world wide when it comes to problems and customer service?
'Image'as in how the public perceives its TV and whether the public would buy it over Led TV.I was not aware of the servicing and customer support issues for Panasonic....sounds dreadful
I am guessing no gold plaque on the back then?
Knowing your views on panel brightness, Gel, I'm guessing this isn't the TV for you. However...
When I saw a calibrated VT65, ZT65, and Samsung F8500 side-by-side I didn't think brightness was an issue with any of the TVs. That was viewing in a light controlled environment. Many people that attended the recent TPS event concluded that the ZT65's filter was more effective in a very bright room and did a better job of preventing images from becoming washed out.
There was very little difference between the three TVs once fully calibrated and viewed in a dark room; and all three produced a remarkably similar image. On that basis, it's hard to justify the ZT65's premium. Maybe four stars is the right rating on a performance-per-pound basis. The VT65 offers 99 percent of the ZT65's performance, for quite a bit less. Even the 65" VT65 is cheaper.
The ZT65 only makes sense if you must have the absolute best; and if money's no object.
Yep, agree. And it is way out of my budget! I think the VT65 would be my first choice this year, followed by the GT60 but the GT60 is the only weight that will go on my stand. Still waiting to demo them!

With a nicely balanced sound, good looks and an attractive price, this powerful-sounding Loewe speaker is an appealing wireless option
A decent enough performer but not particularly engaging
A fine 4K TV that’s full of pros and with only a few cons. A real contender
