Product Details

Panasonic VIERA Flat-Panel HDTV 42" Class Viera C2 Series Black Plasma - TCP42C2

Make every night family night. VIERA® C2 Series Plasma HDTVs are ideal for watching action-packed sports, shows, and movies with the family. The 600Hz Sub-field Drive offers crisp, focused images during fast-moving scenes.

600Hz Sub-field Drive

Crisp, clear moving pictures

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.

VIERA Image Viewer™

Easy viewing of full-HD photos.

It's easy to view full-HD images with the SD card slot. Watch and show your photos right after you take them. Simply insert an SD Memory Card into your VIERA HDTV to display photos on the large screen. 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.

  • Shoot photos.
  • Insert the SD Memory Card.

    Comments about Panasonic VIERA Flat-Panel HDTV 42" Class Viera C2 Series Black Plasma:

    As far as the product goes, looks just as described. The one down fall to this product is the stand the TV goes on, I can guarantee locating a stud in the wall, making sure it's aligned and connecting the wall mount is a thousand times more efficient than building the stand for it. We even tried screwing in the face plate (which is what screws into the stand to allow you to connect the TV to it) with a power screw driver and that wasn't even strong enough. It took two people to put it together and I mean putting my full body weight into screwing it in. [...]

    Service and delivery comments:

    Our delivery was extremely prompt. It came quicker than expected, however once putting the stand together, following the Samsung directions we then took out the TV to connect it to the stand and the TV was severely fractured (approx. 15 cracks). This was at 9PM Pacific time so by the time we contacted ABT they were closed. However I received a call promptly at 9AM from a fine gentleman by the name of Mike Stolarski who allowed me to keep the stand I spent an hour putting together and he made sure we were taken care of 100%. Thank you for having such GREAT customer service. They took an upset customer and made me as happy as a clam! Thanks again ABT! You're there for your customers and we are extremely thankful for that! THANKS MIKE!!!!
