Product Details

TCP42X60 - Panasonic 42" Black 720P Plasma HDTV

The Panasonic TCP42X60 offers a gorgeous 600Hz sub-field drive which provides you with the best quality image technology. This works to provide the crispest of images and eliminates motion-blur. The Panasonic TCP42X60 is both mercury and lead free which makes this Panasonic Plasma friendlier to the environment. This will definitely reduce the impact on the environment. With the new long panel life, however, you won't have to worry about replacing the Panasonic Plasma anytime soon. The Panasonic VIERA TCP42X60 offers a long,lasting, efficient design, that will bring to life your favorite programs.

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
  • 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

I bought this TV after looking at many LED and LCD sets. Based on price and screen quality, this TV is wonderful. I am a fan of plasma due to the fast screen response, display thickness, and price Plasma is a mature technology, and the price of most plasma sets reflects such. The store salesmen will point you at LED, but I can't say the screen quality is better on LED, just they are brighter. This set is not extremely bright, and if you watch TV in a room with lots of sunlight it may not be for you. But for evening or darker room viewing, it is really good. It's not as if you can't see the screen in a sunny room, it just doesn't pop like an LED would. And plasma screens have a glossy screen which will reflect light in a bright room. You will find that the video presets (standard / cinema / game / vivid) are not very good. With a little tweaking, the screen looks great. The TV does get warm, which is a traditional plasma trait, so don't mount it right against the wall, leave a small gap. I am very pleased with my purchase and would buy a similar Panasonic model again.

So I purchased a TC-P42X5 approximately 6 months ago. Was working fine until I came home one night and tried to put the tv on. Of course nothing no power at all was being supplied to the tv. The internal power fuse must have blown. Now I have no TV and have to wait for support or a repairman. I mean the TV is a year old. Cross off panasonic as a name brand that I would ever buy again.

      Comments about Hanover Panasonic 42" Black 720P Plasma HDTV:

      Let me start at the beginning. I am very pleased to have owned this TV for at least four years. Great picture and sound, as expected from a quality Panasonic product. Recently though, I had an issue with the set not coming on; as if it had died. I came online to research/ troubleshoot this issue. I read other reviews citing problems with power outages. In my case, leaving the set unplugged as I did my research worked. (about one hour) I don't know what caused this issue, but I'm so happy to have my Panasonic back! I really was dreading shopping for a replacement. PANASONIC, thank you for having this "self-help" forum.

        I have had this tv for one month.......yes one month and I am not exaggerating. A fuse blew in my apartment and the tv went dead. No blinking lights, nothing. Took the back off the TV and nothing appeared to be amiss. DO NOT BUY THIS TV. From the reviews on this board, you have about a 25% chance of this tv breaking.

            When your Elect goes out the TV does too. Many Many similar complaints on Internet . Serious design flaw. Panasonic should replace all these TV's. TV will usually fix itself after being unplugged for 2 to 3 Days ,yes Days.

              Fixed it the first time with a new power supply board, at less than a year old. Happened during a thunderstorm, so I blamed the surge protector. I replaced the Surge protector with a High Quality unit to be safe. The second time, I unplugged the TV to move it during a new flooring installation. Plugged back in and nothing. No more Panasonic products for me!

                Comments about Panasonic 42" Black 720P Plasma HDTV:

                Reason for only 4 stars: I often view shows I have previously recorded on my own DVR, but this TV won't let me see closed captioning on this recorded material; I CAN view closed captioning while simply watching the show on TV. My previous [18-year-old!] TV DID let me see closed captioning while watching my own pre-recorded material.

                I appreciate Panasonic's excellent documentation. Most other manufacturers do not provide such clear instructions.

                Service and delivery comments:

                5 stars to Abt for delivery, setup, instructions, etc. I would give Abt 10 stars if I could!

Love the bright colors and the cool features. Also had more than enough inputs for everything I needed, and was at a price point I couldn't beat. I've owned it for about a year and a half now and had no problems whatsoever! If I had the choice, I'd go back and do it again. Been an awesome TV!
