Panasonic Viera TC-P42X3


The Panasonic TC-P42X3 ($599 MSRP) is an entry-level 720p plasma screen that performs fairly well for what it is. It won't dazzle anyone, but despite its below-average color performance the TC-P42X3 isn't a bad buy. Editorial Note:This is a review of...

The Panasonic TC-P42X3 is a fairly budget buy for a 2011 plasma TV. It doesn’t have many high-end features, nor does it even have a native 1080p resolution. Still, it offers decent performance at a price that won’t break the bank.
