With a gamma of 2.15 presents the Panasonic brightness differences in the best AbstufungUpps, what is that? Was it the TV or the stereo yet? As the first TV station in the test played Deluxe Music on - in the truest sense of the word. As far as the housing of the 106-centimeter-TV bass can be heard, has been properly with quality Klan to do. The deep rumbling continued even during action scenes with bomb mood continues, so that the DVD "Die Hard 4.0" to which Bruce Willis once again in every respect, serious, even acoustically had nothing to be desired. Makes it possible for a relatively flat TVs advanced driver technology, which is now optimized for Panasonic to train. Not quite able to keep pace since the middle. In the relationship they seemed somewhat reluctant, voices tönten unexpectedly therefore less full. But do not worry, most of the other TVs beats the TH-42PX80 here. In short: We should be using this TV sound completely satisfied.
Like Bruce Willis makes Panasonic no half measures: Compared with the predecessor, the image of the TH-42PX80 fundamentally changed. The new generation G11 panel convinced satterem with black and brighter images, as soon as additional bright colors and shining white in the plasma game. The light-dark contrasts to sting the eye and give the image of something that one of a beginners class is not expected: Impressive precision in the presentation.
The same goes for the sharpness of the panel. About a slightly soft edges drawing, as with the 71er with standard PAL signals was shown, one needs to the successor truly not to complain. Since each pixel is sitting. That showed a real sharpness highlight of the PAL DVDs, "Die Hard 4.0". Professional Glatzkopf Bruce Willis receives such distinctive traits and should be fine wrinkles characteristic smile at the game off so that the Bider a real threat for the family could be lucky. At the same time, the sting hairs from the same hard poker face out how Willis in the film strikes.
Such precision has a certain price - which is, however, happy to pay. The completely smooth polished, more soft-looking picture of the surface 71er Viera, there is now no more. The hard drawing of the newbie brings a slight noise with itself, particularly in the darker scenes materialise. As the panel presented not only inaccuracy of the DVD, but resolves itself a little too rough. It can, however, also avoid: Who on something forgo sharpness can activate menu, the noise reduction. Already, the photograph again somewhat calmer.
Not wegpusten is opposed by the Panasonic traditionally not as successful de-interlacing. With scart analog signals, which are not on full display to calibrate, is this shortage and again - then flicker motive edges in slow scans. Many TV Guckern likely to be important but that the Viera in terms of sharpness and Pixelflirren with the standard analog signals, despite its large screen best cope. Even magnified by zoom letterbox guarantee shipments have real TV fun. Also in the color display has accused Panasonic nothing: 6600 Kelvin color temperature is picture naturalness guaranteed. All event fed-green motives sting a little, if the color knob on TVs set too high.
On the plaster skin of the Panasonic finally really with high-definition images. The standard test trail of AV Magazine belong here, "Casino Royale" and "King Kong". Boredom was at the AV Magazine, but despite routine test not announced. Although the TH-42PX80 "only" with HD-ready resolution aufwartet, he hardly HD desired. His ability to knackscharfe, finely modulated and spatial images to form, is here in almost paramount. Because it dares to be no more of an entry-TV to speak - in this picture is the view caught, and you can hardly get out. Since coming admittedly the benefits of the digital HDMI connection to the full. Extremely important are: Panasonic menu, the overscan off, the output from the player and the HDTV receiver has to 1080i or 1080p calibrated - otherwise loses to sharpness. This is also true for images in standard resolution. Only if one bothers that the PAL now and at the bottom disorders can be recognized, you should understand the overscan. HD movie evenings do not mind - the electronics remembers the Overscan setting for HD and SD separately. One last time in this test we say: Very well done!
