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

    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!

        Great TV Overall way better than an Led or Lcd. A warm, rich, sumpuous picture.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Great, friendly and knowledgeable service. Quick delivery with a "Quality Shipper", not just tossed in the back of a semi truck by a cheap shipper. With electronics, the handling from factory to your door is the main issue always. Always!

          Comments about Panasonic 42" Black 720P Plasma HDTV:

          I was looking for a replacement TV for my "man cave". I tried two 1080P LED TVs before buying the Panasonic 720P plasma. Their limited viewing angle and lack of depth was unacceptable. Even at 720P the Panasonic has a nice sharp picture when viewed at a reasonable distance. Sadly Panasonic has stopped making plasmas so get one while you can! ABT used a third party delivery company which worried me at first. However the box was in perfect condition, no damage inside and the local delivery office was super nice. The driver helped me open the box and inspect the TV before accepting delivery.

            Have purchased several for myself, and for gifts. At this price they are a steal. Only sorry that Panasonic has chosen to leave plasma for the future OLED technology. You don't need 1080p; ABC/Fox both use 720p for their HD broadcasts, and this panel performs extremely well. Each input is adjustable (select Custom)and easy to setup and use. The picture gets better after the original 100 hour breakin, and again around the 300 hour mark.
            At this time of year there will be many brought in for Black Friday type sales. You can spend a little less; but get a lot less. Prices on these panels are incredible.
