Perfect timing from guys at Panasonic, as usual… I was wondering what to get that's good enough to replace my good, no, great actually PZ70 plasma and the answer is right here.
As they say over at TR: "it is so good it's scary". No wonder it's got the Editor's choice then..
I was in a bit of a dilemma there as I wanted to go with their amazing VT series, but this little gem really has everything I need from my TV-set right now.
So now it's just a matter of getting over to guys at HiFiklubben and try one out in their nice test environment… Oh, yeah, and put up with some cash too ;)

While ordering my new TV set, I decided to get myself (or, actually my wife) a new digital camera. I still have the very nice Sanyo Xacti C1 which still produces good enough images (at least in a daylight) and some nice movies (in mpeg 4 format) but I thought it’s about time to move on. I was pretty unsure of which one to go for. There are some really nice Canons out there, I was really interested in two of Ricoh models, and I wanted to at least get some Sonys and Fujis into account.
I ended up with a Panasonic TZ3 model, the one in black finish…
I really like it a lot… The 10x optical zoom is extremely good, and we were able to produce some really nice shots even tho we never bothered to open the manual and check all those settings.
So why did we opt for this model? Well, I do like Panasonic cams even tho I never owned one myself. I had few IXUS models and I was pretty happy with Sanyo Xacti too. The most important reason for buying TZ3 was a really good widescreen mode and a 10x optical zoom. Now there is a Panasonic LX2 (10.2 Mpix) model too that has more of everything and even better widescreen movie capture, but the noise levels were way too high on that one. I bought that one for a customer who needed the movie options and a good overall camera. It’s really good, especially it’s raw mode, but I wanted something else… So, after reading an extremely good article on megapixels I decided on TZ3 which has 7.2 Mpix display.
I highly recommend reading that article btw, it’s well written and easy to grasp. Probably won’t change consumer behavior, but it’s a good effort.
Ahh… finally I’ve decided which TV to buy. It took me a while, and after narrowing the competition down to just 3 models things got really complicated. The lucky contenders were Panasonic TH-42PZ70 (plasma), Toshiba Regza 42Z3030D (LCD) and a really nice Philips 47PFL9632D (LCD).
And without further ado, the winner is:
So how did I come up with that one?
Well, first of all I was pretty much clueless about technology, plasma vs. LCD, screen sizes, input connectors and all that techy stuff.
I wasn’t even sure that I will buy a new TV as I was perfectly happy with my old fat tv,a nice 29″ SONY. But being a tech freak I wanted to get into all this so I can make a better decision when I decide to buy one.
So I’ve starting reading all those reviews, checking prices and scanning through some forums. The only thing I knew to begin with is that it has to be Full HD display, probably an LCD (don’t ask me why…) and nothing less than 37″.
