Off topic question, but that gray device on the bottom right corner of your TV stand... is that a cable box or a power conditioner?

Just a suggestion: Could you put the AVR on the bottom left and then put the CC on the middle shelf with the PS3 and Xbox on either side?

And BTW SWEET TV!!!!!

Am now wondering how this TV will look with bias lighting behind it with that silver trim.
I'm guessing... not great.

With the P42VT30 Panasonic has finally managed to produce the same sort of black level response produced by Pioneer’s now legendary KURO TVs. And that’s just the start of an all-round spectacular performance with both 2D and 3D sources.

Thanks for posting that review. Wife nixed the Samsung and gave me the green light for a 65" VT30. Of course I bought her a new bed first to grease the way!
post #44 of 6435


But whats the measurement? anyone can say their plasma has blacks as good as the kuro(a fine gent measured last years samsung C8000 with updated firmware to to have better blacks than the kuro in some European website). from what i am reading about this plasma on the internet i see no improvements in black levels compared to the VT25.

From the pictures posted in this thread i see the screen looks more gray when blank and the bezel reflects more than the VT25.

I saw that and my OCD kicked in. If I could have I would have reached through the screen and rearranged everything for you and straightened out all the wires nice and neatly

So, with that important disclaimer out of the way, the VT30 measured with our Klein K-10 in dark surroundings and calibrated mode we got 0.02 cd/m2 at 0IRE and 79.35 cd/m2 at 100IRE (approx. 3,967:1 on/off) using standard window patterns from our Sencore VP401. Our 8 month old VT20 measured 0.04 cd/m2 at 0IRE and 75.12 cd/m2 at 100IRE calibrated (1878:1 approx on/off). Our 2 year old Pioneer LX5090 Kuro measured 0.03 cd/m2 at 0IRE and 110.1 cd/m2 at 100IRE calibrated (3,670:1 approx). Ansi-contrast measurements on the Pioneer were 0.04 cd/m2 black and 85.4 cd/m2 white averaged results, with the VT30 managing 0.03 cd/m2 black and 72.4 cd/m2 white averaged results.

As we have said take what you will from those measurements for the three TVs we have set up here side by side and calibrated in the same room. Looking at those results there should be a big difference between the VT20 and VT30 by almost double the on/off contrast figures but in actual content viewing (watching the same Blu-ray clip on all three screens together at the same time), it is very difficult to put those numbers into definite visual differences with moving content. The VT30 is blacker than the VT20 by a small margin in real-life viewing (and in ideal conditions) with not a lot to separate the VT30 and LX5090, not just in terms of black level, but with general calibrated image quality. Some will ask why we haven’t pushed the brightness of the sets to higher levels (some claim 120 cd/m2 as a standard), but another important point that is always forgotten with calibrated results is that the image has to be easy on the eye for long term viewing and complimentary to the viewing room conditions. We have gone for what we determine the ideal viewing circumstances based on industry standards and as close to perfect as you can get on a consumer TV. This means a dimly lit viewing room with suitable placement of ambient lighting. These conditions won’t match some reader’s environments and we recommend that you take this in to account when making your purchasing decision. We have tested the VT30 in brighter conditions below in the picture section, however...

They get two pair of 3D glasses?
Oh the horror
post #55 of 6435
Anyone know the depth of the VT30 at the top? How about the bottom where the speakers are?

I only see the depth under specs of the stand. I can't find the depth without the stand.

Thanks
post #56 of 6435
Can anyone please tell me if this Plasma can be remote controlled via RS232. I have a HTPC i use to control all features on my Amp and would love to control the tv too.

If not are there any other TVs in this quality range that offer RS232 remote controlling?

Thanks!

Looking at the manual, it appears that the 65VT30 panel is 1.6" at the top and 2.4" at the bottom.

And the LX5090 KURO 0.03 cd/m2?


EDIT: -> Calibrated black level (black screen) 0.012 cd/m2
Calibrated black level (ANSI checkerboard) 0.013 cd/m2

Out of the hdtvtest.co.uk-Review. And that's only the 42"!

1) The VT25 rises

2) The VT25 has floating blacks
