Hands-on Review: Panasonic Viera TC-P54VT25 Plasma 3D HDTV and Panasonic DMP-BDT350 3D Blu-ray Player

By Gordon Brockhouse

Panasonic’s top-of-the-line VT25-series plasma TVs are expected to arrive in Canadian stores in late May or early June. Their big claim to fame is 3D capability; but (not coincidentally) they also perform magnificently with 2D fare. Panasonic is not the first vendor to deliver 3D HDTV in Canada. That honour belongs to Samsung, whose C7000-series of 3D-capable LED-edgelit LCDs hit Canadian stores in late March. I will be reviewing one of these sets over the next few days.

While Panasonic’s TC-P54VT25 isn’t the first 3D TV to hit Canadian stores, it’s the first to arrive in my home theatre. For the past week, I’ve been watching a limited range of 3D and wide range of 2D HDTV programming on this 54-inch plasma, which will retail for $3,500. While my loaner unit was a technical sample as opposed to a production model, it appears to be working perfectly, so I’m comfortable writing a full review on the product.
