Excerpt: Some manufacturers are more optimistic than others when it comes to pricing. Or perhaps some just like to build in a lot of headroom to let retailers offer eye-catching ‘discounts’. Either way, unless you’re a Lottery roll-over winner, you needn’t concern yourself with the £950 Panasonic’s own online store would like to relieve you of for the TX-P42G30. Even those who pay the £700 we’re quoting could try harder.
Pros: Solid build, finish and ergonomics, good spec, great contrast, detailed pictures
Cons: THX preset is a matter of taste, needs fiddling before colours look natural
