The Panasonic Viera TX-P46G15 NeoPDP plasma television takes the well-received Panasonic G10 series and improves on it by adding Viera Cast and other networking features to the package. Panasonic's web-based television service, Viera Cast, allows you to pull content from online sources, such as Picasa, Eurosport, and YouTube, into the comfort of your home. In addition to some cosmetic changes, Panasonic has included a built-in satellite connection, DLNA networking, which allows home networking of electronic devices, and DivX playback capability.

In terms of style, the Panasonic Viera TXP-46G15B is a slender 46-inch screen television that includes a great deal of aesthetic appeal and an impressive build. One of the benefits of Panasonic's newest NeoPDP plasma panels is how amazingly slim these televisions are. The Panasonic Viera TXP-46G15 now includes the brushed silver base like the V10 series has rather than the G10's glossy black stand. A sturdy sheet of glass is included by Panasonic to protect the screen that is nearly impenetrable in a standard environment. This is an excellent feature for consumers with young children.

Panasonic Viera TXP-46G15B provides connectivity with four HDMI inputs, a pair of Composite S-Video inputs on the panel side, a Component input, an analogue PC input and two RGB-enabled SCART terminals. Along with the built-in satellite connection, Panasonic includes a Freesat HD tuner, able to receive and display BBC and ITV's high definition programs, and a Freeview tuner, which will allow users to get those channels Freeview has but Freesat does not.

The Panasonic Viera TX-P46G15 includes Panasonics latest contrast technologies along with full HD 1080 resolution in order to achieve the best picture possible. This technology produces a 40,000:1 native contrast ratio, which is a stark contrast to the usual best 2,000:1 ratio of most LCD televisions. The flicker and motion judder that is often a problem with plasma technology is removed via the 600Hz picture processing system that Panasonic uses. Panasonic's high-level V-Real Pro 4 video-processing engine that is such a successful aspect of the popular V10 series is included with the Panasonic Viera TX-P46G15B as well.

All of these aspects combine to create stunning high-definition performance. In addition, perfect clarity when watching sporting events and other high-motion pictures is retained by the NeoPDP panel. In addition, when deinterlacing a 1080i signal the Panasonic Viera TXP-46G15 performs brilliantly. When displaying high-motion images, LCD displays can be affected by subtle camera movements and cause static object to flicker and shimmer and small objects to disappear. None of which was a problem that presented itself on the Panasonic Viera TX-P46G15B when testing it watching tennis matches and similar programming.

There is no question that Panasonic's NeoPDP panels produce distinguished quality. High contrast, superb sharpness, dynamic colours, excellent greyscale, extreme clarity, tremendously deep black-level response, perfect viewing angle performance, and high motion resolution produce an end result that makes the Panasonic Viera TXP46G15 another highly recommended NeoPDP display. This set out produces the black level of LED-backlit screens with ease. The conclusion is that with so many great features and so few shortcomings, the Panasonic Viera TX-P46G15B is a great value among 46-inch 1080p televisions.
