The Panasonic 54" TC-P54G25 1080p Plasma TV just might produce the best television picture you've ever seen. With its Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution and 5,000,000:1 contrast ratio it starts out with some spectacular stats. But then Panasonic has added feature upon feature to improve an already excellent picture.
Its 3-D Color Management feature improves the hue, saturation and brightness by precisely honing in on those colors that need correction while leaving others alone. The Anti-Reflective Filter keeps those vivid lifelike colors from being marred by room reflections on the screen.
Pair your TC-P54G25 with a DVD or Blu-ray player that supports 24p playback and you'll watch movies at exactly the frame rate at which they were shot without "jaggies" or "judder".
For the ultimate in quality motion picture viewing switch to THX mode. THX-certified devices, like the TC-P54G25, have to meet rigorous standards for image performance and quality, ensuring a superb cinematic experience at home.
In addition to TV, DVDs and Blu-ray discs you can insert an SD Card into its slot on the TV to view individual JPEG images, JPEG slideshows with music and home movies shot in the AVCHD format.
The TC-P54G25 also has two USB ports from which it can play programming. You can also use one of the USB ports to plug in a USB wireless LAN adapter (sold separately). The set is already Internet-ready with its built-in RJ45 jack you can plug directly into your broadband modem or via a router. Panasonic calls it Viera Cast. You'll call it amazing. Imagine viewing YouTube and Picasa Web Albums on your TV with no PC or external boxes required. The built-in Web menu updates itself automatically as new content becomes available.
In the past, plasma sets were known as energy gulpers. No more. Your TC-P54G25 uses only about half the energy similar sets used just a few years ago. It even meets the stringent Energy Star 4.0 standard. Panasonic's ultra-fast NeoPDP technology not only creates higher contrast images, it helps the set save energy because it's more efficient than older technologies.
With all the latest high technology Panasonic hasn't forgotten the hearing impaired. This set can display closed captioning from sources that provide it, and CC can also come in handy when you're watching in a noisy environment.
Finally, your TC-P54G25 has what might be considered the ultimate energy saver. If you like to fall asleep watching late night TV, set the off timer to turn off the TV after your last program is over.
