Product Details

Panasonic 42" Black 720P Plasma HDTV - TCP42X5

Features:

  • 600Hz Sub-field Drive
    Panasonic uses its own unique image-analysis technology. This technology converts the motion in each scene into data, and each frame is virtually displayed in a shorter length of time, to create crisp images
    • * When using Cinema mode
  • Viewing Angle Free
    Self-illuminating plasma displays can be viewed from anywhere in the living room without any color fading, so images are always clear and beautiful. Each pixel appears exactly the same, so there is no difference in colors even when viewed from an angle
    • * Measured using an index for evaluating color viewing angles developed by the Advanced PDP Development Center Corporation (APDC). This ensures that you will enjoy exceptional viewing quality even in the largest living rooms
  • Game Mode
    Games are much more fun when there's no lag in operation. VIERA automatically chooses settings that provide the optimal image, so you get super-fast response and no delays. Even dark scenes with delicately rendered details are beautiful and easy to see. Game mode makes all of the game apps on VIERA Connect even more fun to play
  • Media Player
    Simply insert an SD Memory Card or USB memory stick into the slot to enjoy previously saved photos, video clips and music on VIERA's large screen. You can also add frames and other effects to your photos and videos, and create slide shows complete with background music. A wide variety of formats are supported, so you can listen to PC-based music files and web movies right on your TV
    • * Applicable formats vary depending on the mode
  • Mercury and Lead Free
    Panasonic is committed to making our products more friendly to the environment. In line with this commitment, all VIERA plasma display panels are free of both lead and mercury. This reduces the impact on the environment years down the road when the TV is recycled or retired from use
  • Long Panel Life
    One important way consumers can protect the environment is by choosing high-quality products and taking care of them so they last for a long time. A high-quality VIERA HDTV can help. Thanks to a newly designed phosphor process and rear panel process, our plasma panels last for up to 100,000 hours before the brightness decreases by half. That's more than 30 years of viewing 8 hours a day

        TV is a great buy. However, I had special circumstances at time of purchase, due to a problem I had with another store. This TV was out-of-stock at all the local stores in my area, but their websites didn't show it. However, Abt actually had it in stock. Abt Customer Service and Delivery teams solved my dilemma and now I am enjoying my great new plasma TV!

          Best Uses

          • Wide Angle Viewing

          I had a 32" LCD TV. It has a fine picture viewing staight ahead of it, but when viewing from an angle the picture quality fades. I read plasma TVs are better to view from an angle and this turns out to be true for the Panasonic 42" Plasma TV.

          for the price it's a great tv

          By jojo123

          from wtby, ct.

          great tv. great picture. easy setup. 42" is excellant size to install yourself. with blu-ray it's almost like 3-D with a movie that has good effects. such a good price that you don't mind spending because you didn't overspend and you can take advantage of new technology for tv's in future cuz this one didn't cost much. I'm very happy!
