Product Details

Panasonic 42" VIERA U2 Series Black Plasma Flat Panel HDTV, Model TCP42U2

Features:

  • 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 Image Viewer™
    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
  • 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
    • *VIERA Link™ is a new name for EZ Sync™. Not all VIERA Link™ features are usable with other VIERA Link™ and EZ Sync™ compatible products

    Great living room TV. HD broadcast Quality with Directv is just amazing!! Very crisp, detail picture, natural colors, fun TV set to watch. Great product for the price. Sound is average, but not worse then most of the plasma Tvs I've seen around.
    Easy set up and enough features for regular user.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Product arrived as described within the time specified in the receipt. The Pilot company has very limited options for delivery times, had to take time off from work to fit into 4hrs window for TV to be delivered.
