Cheaper, smaller sets appeal to the masses

A couple new plasmas are coming to Panasonic's Viera GT25 series, the latest products to come to the #1 provider of plasma 3D sets. These ones will be cheaper than a lot of their current stock.

There will be a 42-inch and 50-inch model, available at around $1700 and $2100 respectively. These are substantially lower in price than Panasonic's existing $2500+ 3D sets, however they are also smaller. The 42-inch set is the smallest one yet for Panasonic.

The company said this is in response to customers wanting a TV set better suited for gamers, which prefer not to buy giant-sized monitors because of loss of fidelity and response time.

Even though the new sets are cheaper than Panasonic's other offerings, they do pack in a nice feature - the ability to convert 2D video in 3D in real-time.

"The debut of our VIERA GT25 Series of Full HD 3D TVs further expands our portfolio of 3D offerings and makes it even easier for consumers to join the immersive world of Full HD 3D for the home," said company VP Henry Hauser.

In addition to the 3D functionality, the new GT25 models will come with an entire slate of Internet TV content including YouTube, Skype, Twitter, and Netflix streaming.

Both new models will be available later this month.
