Is there an idiots guide to the vast range of Panasonic plasma screens out there. There seems to be C, S, G10, G15, V & X. This list just comes from looking at Richard Sounds.

That'd be Richer Sounds ;)

The hierarchy is (from lowest to highest): C, X, S, G, V

The C range are cut down models with worse filters applied, less connectivity and generally poorer build quality. However, they're cheap.

The X range doesn't have the much touted "full HD" 1920x1080 resolution, but otherwise are highly capable sets. I'd definitely go for one of these over a C series model if that's the kind of area you're looking at.

The S range is 1080p, but not using the latest panel technology (for plasma) or 100Hz technologies (for LCD models).

The G range is basically where Panasonics current proper range starts. It uses their latest neoPDP plasma panel, has a freesat tuner, etc. (The G15 adds Viera Cast, explained below, and some slight design differences over the G10, they are otherwise identical).

The V range has (much) nicer design, an out-of-the-box accurate THX picture mode (on plasma models) and also a bunch of networking features (when wired into a network you can access YouTube, Picasa web albums and others. These features are known as Viera Cast).
