Product Details

Panasonic VIERA 42" Plasma Black Flat Panel HDTV, Model TH42PZ80Q

Features:

  • Tru2way™ technology lets you eliminate the cable box **
    Tru2way is a new technology being introduced by major cable service operators. This same technology is built-in to the VIERA PZ80Q Series of HDTVs -- allowing you to receive full interactive programming from your tru2way-enabled local cable company without having to rent a traditional cable receiver box. This means no more monthly box rental fees, no need for two separate remote controls, and less extra equipment to clutter your home theater setup. Also, if you move to another tru2way-enabled area, you'll be able to use your TV with no equipment changes required
    • ** Cable service subscription still required. Not all cable systems are compatible with this feature. Please check with your cable provider to confirm availability of service
  • Enjoy Deep Black Levels with Outstanding Contrast
    The 1,000,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio creates deep, robust blacks and faithfully reproduces scenes with a delicate balance of light and shadow
  • Watch Fast-Moving Scenes with Clear, Vivid Resolution
    The 480Hz Sub-Field Drive self-illuminating plasma display features fast moving picture resolution, so you enjoy smooth, clear motion in sporting events and action movies
  • Network Your AV Devices, Quickly and Easily
    With VIERA Link™, you can control your compatible Panasonic DVD recorder, Blu-ray Disc™ player, home theater sound system and HD camcorder all with a single remote. HDMI cables make set-up quick and easy; VIERA Link even automatically sets your DVD recorder via an Auto Preset Download function
  • Share Your Digital Photos on the Big Screen
    The built-in SD memory card slot makes it easy to instantly display your digital photos on a large, high-def display screen. It's a better way of sharing your memories with friends and family!

      Comments about Panasonic VIERA 42" Plasma Black Flat Panel HDTV:

      This TV is worth bragging about. The setup was straight forward and the picture is fantastic. I wouldn't trade for any other TV I've yet seen in anyone's home.
      A word of caution; If you're considering buying this TV because of the Tru2Way feature, check with you local cable company to see if this service is available in your area. I live in Denver and Tru2way is supposedly available here through Comcast. However, when I called them to install the card, they seemed confused by the request and it took several calls to get the card installed.

      Service and delivery comments:

      ABT Rocks!
      I don't know which is better; The friendly, knowledgeable people who helped me on the phone or the fast and free shipping. And I saved over $300 dollars, too!
      The level of service I received from ABT truly made my purchase of this TV fun.

      If only other companies were this good...

        Comments about Panasonic VIERA 42" Plasma Black Flat Panel HDTV:

        Perfect size for a master bedroom (15'x20'). Picture looks great- even before we install the cable card... looking forward to that. The regular channels that trasmit in 1080i come through beautifully. Only two cord- cable and power. Blu Ray later so inevitably 3. We debated about LCD and plasma for a long time. Settled on plasma because superior technology for now (LCD will be the VHS of the Beta/ VHS battle back in the time). Nonetheless, Panasonic is one of the best our there. Good price with ABT as well.

        The HD is great
        Comcast tru2way is working great. Sleek and smooth and fast loading, it just makes it fun to use and amazed there is no cable box, no hdmi, just the cable and the power. I look forward to the features that will eventually come with the tru2way.

        Only thing I dont like is the remote's location of the channel and volume buttons. I think they should be switched around, but I'm sure i will get used to it.
