NEC PlasmaSync 61XR4A Plasma TV Review


In Physics we have learned that matter has three states known as solid, liquid and gas. In modern science Plasma can be known as the fourth state of the matter. Plasma panels use phosphor to display images. Xenon and Neon gases filled between two glass...

The list price on this Plasma TV is more than $11,000.00 but the street and internet price is in the area of $7,000.00 which makes it an attractive buy. Some minor artifacts when compared with the big picture, low price and long life of the product can...

NEC Plasmasync 61XR4G

Although it's supposed to be part of NEC's 'residential' range, the 50XR4G comes with no built-in TV tuner.

Bright images, HD Ready, Good sound

Contrast and colour issues, Expensive optional speakers, No TV tuner or Scarts

Provided you can put up with the connection hassles, the 50XR4G is certainly not a bad plasma performer. But by the same token, when put in the context of some of its rivals, it's not a particularly appetising one either

NEC PlasmaSync 61XR4G 61in plasma TV


It's big, it's huge, it's massive, but is it good?
