Dell W4200 42-inch High Definition Plasma TV HDTV

 

A little perspective is very valuable. The Dell W4200HD took top honors when we first reviewed it in comparison with plasma TVs from two other companies (HP and ViewSonic) that are also better known for their PC products. The Dell won that match by...

The unit's audio is adequate. The twin speakers, rated at 20 watts each, sounded a bit softer than those on some competing TVs, such as the LG 42PX4D and Pioneer PDP-4350PU. And its one surround-sound option, SRS True Surround XT, was not as enveloping...

Dell W4200 HD Plasma TV

 

Screen Size (Diagonal): 42 inches, Supported EDTV and HDTV Resolutions: 720p

Solid image quality (both measured and perceived). Good on-screen display controls. Dual built-in tuners (NTSC and ATSC). Very competitive price.

Needs some color/brightness/contrast adjustments out of the box, since default settings look a bit washed out.

It's tough to beat this deal. The 42-inch Dell W4200 HD Plasma TV delivers very good image quality at a very competitive price.
