If you could get a 2009 50" V10 or a 2010 50" G25 for the same price, which would you choose, and why? I can't seem to find a definite better choice, but I am sure others might have good opinions about it. thank you!

Just a theory but if panasonic does decide to address the so-called black level issue it probably won't take effect until Q4 of this year.(at the very least) I would probably just decide between the features of the two TV's and the price differential. And most importantly keep in mind there is no such thing as a perfect T.V


I'm going to go out on a limb and say you'd be happy with either TV.

I'd go with the G25 over the V10, as the panel is supposed to have implemented some of the Pioneer Kuro technology. There are other advances but this is the one most hyped. Regardless which side you fall on in the "Increasing MLL debate", Panasonic has stated that the voltage drive adjustments are more gradual in the 2010 panels. Depending on what you feel, in the 2010 models it will either not be a problem, or less of a problem than on the V10.


Me, I am going with a VT25.

Here in Italy the stores Media Markt (Mediaworld-Saturn) have already the prices about series g20-s20-x20.

50g20 is priced 1449 euro.

Consider that the old 50v10 is now priced 1990 euro.........

So, the 2010 Panasonic plasmas will cost a lot less than the 2009 plasmas.

G25 won't have 96Hz processing for 24p content or whatever way you want word this and V10 would. That means G25 would flicker at 48Hz and V10 won't when you engage 96Hz for 24p content. You decide.

That is also a good point, I routinely forget about this as I have always had 96Hz and have taken it for granted. I don't know what things are like without it, but every time it is left out of the G series enough people get upset about it, so it must be important.

Yes, the 50G25 is definitely less than the 50V10 based on all ready available US pricing. I'd have to thing going on street prices, once the G25 is available for sale it will be even less.

Well I am assuming I can find them both at the same price...I have the v10 available for $1450, and the list MSRP of the g25 is $1500. So, I am assuming that I could get either for virtually the same price..though the g25 is still uncertain

but why though? i'm looking for a good reason why to go with one or the other. Seems like the g25 has better contrast ratio, but the v10 can handle video speed better.

Some tests say that V10 handle not really 1080 lines in the movements but 950-980.

In my opinion the g20\\g25 will be surely advanced to the v10.

I think Panasonic will put in the g20 a better electronic.

It have to wait still some days.....

hmm...I still don't know if there is much difference b/w the v10 and g25, so it sounds like the only reason to wait would be to avoid the severe black issue, and wait for the slight black issue models

Do you know if any of the new 2010 Panasonic plasmas have the 96Hz processing?

Right now the word is that the 50G25 will be out sometime in Feb. or March. You would not have to wait long if that was part of the consideration.

The 50G25 is on the Panasonic US website, and was for sale online at 1 vendor yesterday...may be a preorder?

I would never buy any TV sight unseen. If you can wait for the G25's to show up on the show room floor and thoroughly check them out then it might be worth the wait, but then the supply of the V10's might start to shrink up. Just something to consider.

That is a tough call. I suppose you would have to weigh all the various differences, and decide which were more important to you.


The G25 has only the 24P 48 Hz 2:2 pulldown, so if that is important to you, then they V10 handles it better.


On the other hand, you are supposed to see an enormous improvement in the G25 black levels, over the the V10. Since 2009 was the first gen. of the Neo-PDP panels, I would expect that Panasonic probably have learned about some performance issues, and have rectified some of them in the G25 model.


Good luck with what ever unit you decide to go with.
