Panasonic Viera TC-P42X1


The Panasonic TC-P42X1 costs only $700 (estimated street price as of 9/24/09). But while this plasma HDTV set can accept a 1080p input, it downscales the image to its native 720p resolution. This was the likely cause of the set's biggest problem in our...

Low price ; Wide viewing angle

Only 720p resolution ; Underpowered sound

A 720p plasma set, the low-cost Panasonic TC-P42X1 provides problematic images and underpowered sound.

Panasonic Viera TC-P50X1


The capability of a TV to reproduce a dark shade of black is the number-one criteria for awarding a good picture quality score here at CNET. Often better blacks dictate higher prices, but in the case of Panasonic's newest line of entry-level plasmas,...

Relatively inexpensive; excellent black-level performance; solid connectivity with three HDMI and two component-video inputs

Inaccurate primary colors of green and red; faint diagonal lines visible in lighter areas; sparse picture controls; less efficient than similar LCDs

Although it requires more than a few picture quality trade-offs, the Panasonic TC-P50X1 delivers the best black-levels-to-dollars ratio of any HDTV we've tested.

Panasonic Viera TC-L37X1 LCD HDTV First Impressions Review - Intro


The TC-L37X1 is a 37-inch LCD and sits near the bottom of Panasonic's HDTV lineup. Sporting a lower 720p resolution than most of Panasonic's line the TC-L37X1 does have iPod integration. As a 720p set we expect the TC-L37X1 to be priced more...

Though there wasn't any pricing information available, the TC-L37X1's press release seemed to paint the series as a more affordable option. It looks as though a low price will be the main selling point of this TV. The iPod connectivity is nice, but the...

Panasonic TC-P42X1


We accurately predicted back in March 2009 that the price on the X1 720p models would be compelling. The TC-P42X1 can be purchased for around $750 at Best Buy or Amazon as of June 2009

Product Specifications

The 600Hz sub-field drive of Panasonic TC-50PX14 produces crisp, focused images for sports, dramatic action, and all other fast-moving scenes. Your full-HD movies and games never looked sharper.
