Product Details

Panasonic 42" Black 1080P Plasma HDTV, Model TCP42S60

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
  • Play Various Types of Formats Easily
    Simply insert a USB memory stick into the slot to enjoy previously saved music, or view photos and video clips 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 play PC-based music files and web movies right on your TV
  • Eco Mode
    This mode automatically turns the power off and adjusts the brightness depending on VIERA's operating status
  • No signal for 10 minutes or no activity for 3 hours
    This setting automatically turns the power off when there's no image signal for 10 minutes or more, or when there's no activity for 3 hours or more
  • Power Save
    This setting adjusts screen brightness to reduce power consumption
  • C.A.T.S (Contrast Automatic Tracking System)
    This feature automatically adjusts screen brightness according to ambient light. When the room darkens, it lowers the screen brightness and adjusts the image quality, resulting in both easier viewing and power conservation
  • Mercury and Lead Free
    Panasonic is committed to making our products friendlier 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

      This is my first plasma. Surprisingly the S60 is great in most lighting. I am loving the rich colors and super wide viewing angles. I know most people don't like shiny panels because of glare, but I like the shiny effect instead of the dull matte screens. The only downside is the standard auto-dimming that it has. In very bright scenes or white background commercials, the white will be dimmed to a light grey. At first this was almost a deal breaker for me because I knew LCDs would stay nice and bright. But you get used to it and the deep blacks with rich colors more than make up for it. I went from being on the verge of returning it to absolutely loving it. And you can't beat the price.

      Not a Great Panasonic Plasma

      Thyis middle grad plasma should have a much better picture. It is dim and washed out, even on the vivid setting.

      I searched and found on-line professional picture calibration settings for use in the "Custom Mode" of the picture setting menu. The resulting improvement in picture quality was astounding.
      My next purchase is a good sound bar for this set.

            • Secondary TV

            I use the TV in the bedroom connected to a Sony HT-CT260 2.1 Soundbar. Works great for streaming Hulu/Netflix/Amazon while laying in bed or watching late night news.

            For the price I doubt I could find a LCD/LED HDTV with as good picture quality.

              This is my first plasma. Surprisingly the S60 is great in most lighting. I am loving the rich colors and super wide viewing angles. I know most people don't like shiny panels because of glare, but I like the shiny effect instead of the dull matte screens. The only downside is the standard auto-dimming that it has.
