5/5 Panasonic TX-P42ST60 DigitalVersus 2013-03-18 12:02:00

Pros

  • Contrast over 5000:1
  • Very wide viewing angles
  • Very responsive screen (6 ms on average)
  • Accurate colours (average Delta E = 3)
  • Excellent 3D mode, hardly any crosstalk
  • New interface is a real improvement

Cons

  • Glossy screen prone to reflections
  • High power use (207 watts)

Conclusion

The TX-P42ST60 is the 42" version of the TX-P50ST60 that we've reviewed in detail. Apart from its design and graphic interface, the Panasonic ST60 doesn't really improve on 2012's ST50. Still, it's a five-star TV and an excellent choice for home-cinema set-ups.
