The Panasonic TX-P42X10 is a large screen plasma television for those who want a bigger screen than the 37″ TX-P37X10 but still want the deepest blacks for only a small additional outlay.
The Panasonic TX-P42X10 is identical in performance and features as the 37″ versions, with the outstanding 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio providing unprecedented black levels and colour depth that simply is not available with LCD televisions. The screen itself is an attractive looking television with the thin frame and bottom based speaker looking especially good on this 42″ version. The speaker is enhanced with the V-Audio Surround sound feature giving an improved quality and depth of audio from a fairly thin speaker.
The TX-P42X10 has an HDMI socket, RCA phono socket and S-Video sockets to the side of the screen to make it easy to connect Camcorders and other portable devices, and the rear of the television has an additional 2 HDMI connections to enable you to connect a Blu-ray player and games console as well as component inputs for an extra games console, and two Scart sockets for other devices.
One of the benefits of plasma is the wider viewing angle and the impact resistant anti reflective screen on the Panasonic TX-P42X10 gives the full benefit. Sports lovers will find that one of the biggest benefits of the Panasonic is the 100Hz double scan feature which keeps fast moving images looking smooth and reduces flicker dramatically.
Whilst the TX-P42X10 is an HD Ready screen and not Full HD, it still offers a high quality viewing experience, and is especially suited to standard definition and DVD movies. The built-in Freeview tuner also helps you enjoy the benefit of digital tv.
