Well stone us if Panasonic hasn't gone and removed nearly all the silver from its brand new Vieras and painted them solid black. Could it be eying up a living room date with our shiny new PS3 and rumoured black Xbox 360?Either way these screens will do them justice. By upping the refresh rate to 100hz they match the smoothness of a CRT while whipping the pants off the old school technology with 1080i HD.All three get the latest incarnation of Panny's picture tweaking technologies, V-Real II, and V-Audio to keep everything sounding sweet.The LMD70 base model (pictured) gets a 7000:1 contrast ratio, upped to 8500:1 on the LXD70. The top of the range LXD700 adds V-Audio Surround, an all-important third HDMI slot and an SD card reader for perfectly presented HD photos.And invite the extended family round, yes even Uncle Barry, because all three screens have a viewing angle just two degrees short of the full 180. Perfect for showing off our Motorstorm skills. Now, watch this mud slide. Essentials
