Panasonic TH-42PX25U/P 42-Inch High-Definition Plasma TV

Panasonic TH-42PX25U/P 42-Inch High-Definition Plasma TV Lowest used price: $600.00
List price: $5,499.99
Brand: Panasonic
Model: TH-42PX25U/P

Panasonic TH-42PX25U/P 42-Inch High-Definition Plasma TV

Flat-panel, big-screen luxury is yours with Panasonic's 42-inch VIERA series TH-42PX25U/P. This 1,024 x 768-pixel gas-plasma TV offers a 16:9 widescreen dimension, photo-viewing SD and PC Card slots, and an HDMI input for direct-digital connection with high-definition sources. Its ATSC tuner pulls HD signals (480p/1080i) right out of the airwaves, however, and its QAM tuner is fully compatible with unscrambled HDTV cable reception. A standard analog NTSC tuner receives standard-definition (SD) programming, and 2-tuner/split-screen picture-in-picture gives you unparalleled viewing convenience with scalable image sizes.

The set's authorized CableCARD ability means the set will also receive digital cable television systems services directly from the cable operator without requiring a bulky, external cable box.

The Benefits of HDTV
Standard TVs (SDTVs) display a maximum of 480 lines using the interlaced scan method, which creates a picture with alternating lines of information.
Enhanced-definition TVs (EDTVs) display a maximum of 480 lines using the progressive-scan method, which creates an image using consecutive lines of information for a crisp, flicker-free picture.
High-definition TVs (HDTVs) display a maximum of either 1,080 interlaced lines or 720 progressively scanned lines for the sharpest possible image.
With a plasma screen you get true to life vivid colors like you've never seen before, extremely wide viewing angles (wider, even, than those of most LCD screens), making it the perfect screen for home theater set ups. Easy placement due to the plasma monitor's slim profile--the TH-42PX25U/P is a mere 5.5 inches deep, perfect for desk or wall mounting and freeing up much of the space that was previously lost with deep CRT TVs.

Brightness tends to be extremely uniform across plasma screens, which are also impervious to the picture distortion and negative color balances that afflict CRT monitors when placed near lighting or sound systems.

The TH-42PX25U/P's contrast ratio is rated at an extraordinarily lifelike 3,000:1, and the TV is capable of producing over 1 billion colors. Picture-enhancing technologies include the Mach Band Effect Enhancer, a Gamma Enhancement System, and Panasonic's New Real Black Drive System.

The High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) offers uncompressed digital data transmission between compatible devices, as between the TH-42PX25U/P and a DTV satellite receiver. Other connections include dual HD component-video inputs, 3 each composite- and S-video inputs, and front-panel A/V jacks for easy hookup with external devices, including an RGB PC input (15-pin mini D-Sub) offering up to 720p resolution. A set of composite-video-based A/V outputs simplifies hookup with an external A/V receiver and speaker system.

The TV's internal 2-way, biamplified stereo speakers are powered by 13 watts total per channel and use 5 separate drivers per speaker for extra richness and clarity. BBE ViVA HD3D surround processing creates authentic-sounding 3D effects from stereo speakers and exceptional sound-stage imaging, helping to ensure optimal clarity for centrally staged audio material such as dialogue. Artificial intelligence sound automatically adjusts the volume level on your TV to prevent wide variations in sound between different TV stations and types of programming.

Other features include V-Chip Program lockout, on/off sleep timers, a remote control, and closed-caption decoding.

Samsung SPN4235 42-Inch Widescreen Plasma Flat-Panel HD-Ready TV

Samsung SPN4235 42-Inch Widescreen Plasma Flat-Panel HD-Ready TV Lowest used price: $699.00
List price: $4,199.99
Brand: Samsung
Model: SPN4235X/XAA

Now you can use your PC and enjoy home-theater entertainment all from a single, broad flat-panel screen with brilliant colors and extraordinary contrast. Samsung's 42-inch SPN4235 plasma TV offers high-definition compatibility with HD sources and a native resolution of 852 x 480 pixels. Its direct-digital DVI input works with compatible DTV set-top boxes and PCs, and the EDTV set accepts full HDTV inputs (720p, 1080i) and scales them for progressive 480p viewing.

A built-in analog tuner, a pedestal stand, and a generous array of inputs and outputs make set up a snap, and the SPN4235's widescreen (16:9) display is specially configured to match or approximate the native aspect ratios of your favorite movies, either from DVD or from HDTV broadcasts when the set is hooked up to a DTV receiver (not included).

With a plasma screen you get vivid colors like you've never seen before, extremely wide viewing angles (wider, even, than those of most LCD screens), and easy placement due to a plasma monitor's slim profile. The SPN4235 is an astoundingly slim 3.1 inches deep, perfect for desk or wall mounting (the set includes a convenient pedestal stand, pictured). Brightness tends to be extremely uniform across plasma screens, which are also impervious to the picture distortion and negative color balances that afflict CRT monitors when placed near lighting or sound systems.

Additional inputs include one HD component-video input (480p/720p/1080i) and one SD component-video input (480i) as well as one each S-video, composite-video, and RF. Samsung's proprietary video-enhancement technology, Digital Natural Image engine (DNIe), performs 3D noise reduction and detail and contrast enhancement for all interlaced (non-HD) sources.

The set also houses a 10-watts-per-channel audio amplifier for use with optional speakers, such as those in your existing stereo or home theater, or Samsung's matching PSM4230 speakers. A dedicated subwoofer output is just what you need to hook the set up with a powered sub for rafter-rattling low frequencies from your favorite movies and music. And, if you're listening in stereo or 2.1 (stereo plus subwoofer), onboard Dolby Virtual surround sound will simulate an enveloping surround experience with no need for rear-channel speakers.

The set's NTSC two-tuner picture-in-picture (side-by-side, split-screen) grants convenient, simultaneous viewing of two TV programs, and a fanless cooling system ensures quiet operation. Other optional accessories include a wall-mount kit (WMN4230) and a pneumatic floor stand (FS420).

SVA HD4208TIII-PDP 42-Inch Flat-Panel Plasma EDTV

SVA HD4208TIII-PDP 42-Inch Flat-Panel Plasma EDTV Lowest used price: $699.99
List price: $2,499.99
Brand: SVA
Model: HD4208TIII-PDP

The SVA 42" Plasma TV creates a moving, um, movie experience, rather than just another movie night. Stylish and elegant, the TV is just over 3" deep and never detracts from the ambience of the room—yet it's always the center of attention. It combines HDTV compatibility (720p/1080i), integrated home theater audio, built-in TV tuner, futuristic developed panel, widescreen viewing, high brightness, and a superior 700:1 contrast ratio. Features 852x480 resolution with a 16:9 aspect ratio, progressive scan, and 160° viewing angle. The separate AVC (Audio, Video and Computer) system holds all inputs and outputs, and a PC connection, reducing the cables, thus eliminating any unsightly distractions. TV is wall-mount compatible with the purchase of wall-mount brackets (sold separately). 110 lbs. (with stand). 25-1/2Hx46-1/4Wx3-3/4D".

Once demanding tens of thousands of dollars, gas-plasma flat-panel displays have entered the realm of current real-world HDTV prices. One such newly affordable plasma display is SVA's widescreen HD4208TIII, a 42-inch set using a Samsung plasma screen with 852 x 480 native pixel resolution. The set gives you true EDTV (480p, progressive-scan) resolution as well as inputs compatible with full-resolution 720p and 1080i HDTV signals (optional set-top box decoder/receiver required) as well as analog PC signals up to 1,600 x 1,200 through a VGA input.

A plasma screen gives you vivid colors like you've never seen before, extremely wide viewing angles (wider, even, than those of most LCD screens), and easy placement due to a plasma monitor's slim profile--the HD4208TIII is a mere 3.9 inches deep, perfect for desk or wall mounting. Brightness tends to be extremely uniform across plasma screens, which are also impervious to the picture distortion and negative color balances that afflict CRT monitors when placed near lighting or sound systems. The HD4208TIII offers 160-degree viewing angles, high 700:1 contrast, and typically luminous 600 cd/m2 brightness.

On this display, SVA uses a dissymmetrical unit structure from Samsung for the optical elements, which greatly improves tricolor illumination balance over previous models. Moreover, the set's advanced plasma AI system can automatically increase the discharge frequency on gray and dark scenes to precisely control brightness levels. Thus, images become clearer, more natural, and generally more vivid. The set also features a pure-black driving system to enhance black-level regeneration and pure-gamma rectifying technology, which produces 1,024 gray levels for extremely detailed home theater viewing. The 24-bit real-color display can realize 16.7 million colors with good reducibility.

SVA's 72 Hz line-by-line scanning technology thoroughly eliminates any flickering of 60 Hz NTSC TV pictures. And, unlike many plasma sets, the HD4208TIII doesn't need an RF commutator between it and your cable box; you'll be able to enjoy pristine, high-contrast cable images (at standard cable resolution) right out of the box. The unit's stereo speakers are powered by a generous 12 watts per channel.

Inputs consist of the above-mentioned VGA computer input, one each composite, S-video, RF (for antenna or VCR/cable box signal), and HD component-video, and four accompanying stereo analog (left/right) RCA inputs for your associated source components (DTV set-top box, satellite receiver, PVR, VCR, DVD player, etc.). An composite-video based audio/video output lets you feed an SD (standard-definition) interlaced video signal to a PVR or VCR.

Features:

  • 42-inch gas-plasma display with EDTV (up to 480p) native resolution; 46 x 28.9 x 14.9 inches (W x H x D) with stand
  • High 700:1 contrast ratio, luminous 600 cd/m2 brightness
  • 852 x 480 native pixel resolution; accepts 720p and 1080i HDTV signals
  • PC input with image scaling for up to 1,600 x 1,200 resolution
