Product Details

Panasonic VIERA 42" G25 Series Plasma Black Flat Panel HDTV, Model TCP42G25

The VIERA® G25 Series Plasma is the center of your entertainment universe. With VIERA Cast™, enjoy what the web has to offer right on the big screen. Catch up with family and friends with Skype on your TV, catch your favorite movie with Netflix and listen to great music with Pandora - plus more! And the Infinite Black Panel featured on the G25 series blocks ambient light and produces deep blacks and bright, vivid images with minimal reflection.

Features:

  • VIERA CAST™
    VIERA Cast's assorted online content just keeps getting better - in addition to the popular contents such as YouTube and Picasa Web Albums, it now offers Pandora® Internet Radio, movies streamed from Netflix™*, exciting sports from FOX Sports™, tweeting web communications with Twitter®, and even home video and audio conferencing with Skype™. It also provides USB terminals for a keyboard and Wireless LAN Adaptor. No PC required
    • *Netflix limited membership required
    • **Keyboard and Wireless LAN Adaptor are not included
    • *Design and content are subject to change without notice
  • Skype™ on Your VIERA® TV
    VIERA Cast's addition of Skype makes it possible for people around the world to connect and communicate through voice and video calls from the comfort of their own living room on VIERA's large screen
    • * Broadband connection and a webcam required
  • Infinite Black Panel
    A new panel and improvements to the cell discharge area dramatically increase contrast when viewing in brightly lit locations. And reducing the electrical pre-discharge that causes graying has greatly enhanced black gradation. As a result, deep, rich blacks are displayed in virtually any viewing area, from living rooms to bedrooms. Even in dark film scenes, fine textures such as on clothing, are clearly reproduced
  • VIERA Image Viewer™
    It's easy to view full-HD images with the SD card slot. Watch and show your photos and motion images right after you take them. Simply insert an SD Memory Card into your VIERA HDTV to display photos and full-HD videos on the large screen. You can also choose from among 5 types of background music and 5 display effects. It's much more fun when you can view them on a large screen HDTV with family and friends in 1920x1080-pixel high definition and a wide 16:9 aspect ratio
  • THX® Certified Display
    THX® reproduces film images as the filmmakers intended them. The overall aim was to improve the experience of cinema-goers and faithfully recreate the audio and visual ambience that filmmakers intended. To receive THX® certification, TVs undergo stringent tests to determine, for example, whether the exact same brightness and color are displayed at all screen locations, and whether black levels satisfy standard criteria. VIERA® meets the high standards set by the THX® Certified Display Program
    • * THX and THX logo are trademarks of THX Ltd., which may be registered in some jurisdictions. All rights reserved
  • 600Hz Sub-field Drive
    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 dots. And each frame is practically displayed for a shorter length of time than in previous systems, to reduce aftereffects
    • *When using cinema mode
  • VIERA Link™
    VIERA Link allows interconnected operation of various AV devices using only the VIERA remote control, by simply connecting compatible devices to each other by an HDMI cable

Comments about Panasonic VIERA 42" G25 Series Plasma Black Flat Panel HDTV:

The TV started right up out of the box. Easy installation, and set up. The picture quality is one of the best I've seen. Sound quality is average but not really a con with a home theater system. Will always buy plasma now.

Service and delivery comments:

Customer service was outstanding. I ordered the TV and found a lower price the next day, they refunded my account within 2 days. Shipping was extremely fast and came in perfect condition. I had a pleasure doing business with Abt.

Comments about Panasonic VIERA 42" G25 Series Plasma Black Flat Panel HDTV:

I use this set in my bedroom and it's just the right size. I had to replace a Philips 32" 16x9 tube which I dearly loved and this is about as close as it gets. With a bit of tweaking the picture is great. The sound is not so great and a SMART remote should be included.

    Comments about Panasonic VIERA 42" G25 Series Plasma Black Flat Panel HDTV:

    I really like this TV. Accurate color, good saturation and the black levels are excellent. There is no evidence of moire patterns that I have seen in some lcds. The sound is OK and theremote works well. The setup could be better. The internet connection is pretty lame. The two news channel available are in German only! No Netflix yet[@] Youtube and Picasa, Skype, and weather are avaiable also. What I dislike the most is the frame that surrounds the picture and it surprised me that Panasonic hasn't updated the look of its boxes. LG,Samsaung and Sony make a better looking box but the Panny plasmas are still "best" in picture quality .

    Service and delivery comments:

    My delivery was prompt but arrived damaged. Should have checked TV before signing for it. Called ABT and matter was handled promptly. Broken tv picked up and new one shipped by common carrier. It took longer but arrived with no damage.

    Comments about Panasonic VIERA 42" G25 Series Plasma Black Flat Panel HDTV:

    I tried the highly-rated Samsung B750, and am glad I exchanged it for this Panny!The colors are far truer to life, and the motion is less 'cartoon-ish'.I just watched the Bluray version of Avatar - the blacks, the movement, the depth of view, and colors were magnificent.I recommend this set very highly.My only negative are that the sound is not great (will remedy w/external speakers), and the menu system could be a bit more user friendly w/r/t shortcuts.If you buy one, check out the users thread on[@] for guidance on the best calibration.

    Comments about Panasonic VIERA 42" G25 Series Plasma Black Flat Panel HDTV:

    I use this in my living room home theater. My living room is relatively small, so I chose a smaller TV, I actually downgraded in size from a 46" LCD. My living room has only one window, so it is somewhat darker than most. This being said, I know this TV would work in a more naturally-lit room.

    The picture quality and color quality on this TV is excellent. I am very impressed with the TCP42G25, Blu-Ray and HD content is AWESOME. So far, after a week, I can not find anything to gripe about (and I am picky about these things)

    Only downside are the speakers. Of course, they are just fine for the normal user.
