    Comments about Panasonic 42" VIERA C1 Series Black Plasma Flat Panel HDTV:

    Used in a showroom and for 720dpi displaying of interior design work, photos look phenomenal. Slide show features are great, bummer that I can't upload sound onto the SD card to play along- you have to have a secondary insert device like a DVD player for music. Cheaper than the 1080i but quality works the same for our application.
