Panasonic TC-P54G25 LCD HDTV First Impressions Review$1,999.00
Tour & Design
Panasonic doesn't mess around with the design of its HDTVs. The front of the TC-P54G25 is very simple and features a standard black bezel. There are no controls on the front of the TV (they're all on the left side), and the only text is a small Panasonic logo centered on the bottom portion of the bezel.
Panasonic had all of its TVs mounted on the wall at CES, so we couldn't get acess to the back of the TC-P54G25. We do know there are a few ports back there, but everything beyond that is a mystery.
The left side of the TC-P54G25 has a set of controls as well as a few ports. The right side doesn't really have anything other than black plastic. The TC-P54G25 is fairly thin, but compared to some of the the ultra-thin TVs on display at CES this year, it doesn't look very special.
As we said before, all of Panasonic's TVs on display at CES were all mounted on the wall, so we couldn't get a good shot of the stand that comes with the TC-P54G25.**
The TC-P54G25 has a no-frills design that is both unassuming and attractive. The glossy, black bezel makes its way around the entirety of the plastma screen, and it is roughly 1.5 - 2 inches wide (it's a bit wider at the bottom). There aren't any buttons on the front of the TV, and the only real light is a small, red LED that indicates power. If you're someone who wants a TV that has a simple elegance, then you should check out the TC-P54G25 series.
