    600Hz technology lets you view superb full-HD motion and still images with 1,080 lines of resolution. For even greater clarity with motion images, Panasonic uses its own unique image-analysis technology. This technology converts the motion in each scene into data. And each frame is practically displayed for a shorter length of time than in previous systems, to reduce aftereffects
  • 24p Cinematic Playback
    VIERA recreates the unique atmosphere of movie images. Enjoy cinema quality in your own home. The images that are recorded onto movie film at 24 frames per second (fps) are reproduced at four times that speed by 24p Cinematic Playback. This achieves film like reproduction than 2:3 pull down method
  • AR Filter
    This advanced filter keeps images sharp, with minimal glare. While dramatically reducing reflections from external light, it helps to produce clear images. This filter creates pure, crisp images in a wide range of colors
  • VIERA Image Viewer

It's much more fun when you can view them on a large-screen HDTV with family and friends in 1920 x 1080-pixel high definition and a wide 16:9 aspect ratio
  • VIERA Link
    VIERA Link allows interconnected operation of various AV devices using only the VIERA remote control, by simply connecting the devices to each other by an HDMI cable

      Comments about Panasonic VIERA 42" X14 Series Plasma Black Flat Panel HDTV:

      This is the first HD TV that I purchased. I was torn between LCD and Plasma. I used Consumer Reports and ended up choosing this TV. I haven't regretted that decision. I love this TV. The picture is great and the setup was very easy. I would easily recommend this TV to any of my friends.

      My only con is that there is only 2 HDMI inputs. However, I can always buy an HDMI switching box.

      Service and delivery comments:

      I never heard of ABT before this purchase. However, I used my American Express Membership Rewards for this purchase and ABT was listed as one of their retailers in the program.

      I did some research and decided to take a chance and buy from ABT. I will be a repeat customer of ABT in the future. The order process was easy, immediate confirmation after the order, tracking information, and even a follow-up message 3 weeks after the purchase.
