Panasonic TH-42PZ700U

 

The world leader in plasma display panel (PDP) manufacturing, Panasonic currently has the largest selection of plasma televisions that offer 1080p screen resolution (1,920 by 1,080 pixels, progressively scanned). The company's $1,995 TH-42PZ700U is the...

Full 1080p resolution. Very good standard-definition video processing. Good video-noise management

Overscan with 720p video sources. No 1080p input with VGA or component video ports

Panasonic's 42-inch plasma uses full 1080p resolution and effective video processing to keep its picture clean and sharp.

Panasonic TH-42PZ700U

 

You might expect the only 1080p plasma in our November issue's HDTV roundup--and the first 42-inch 1080p plasma ever--to outshine its eleven competitors in image quality. It did: PC World's jury rated its picture higher than that of any other TV, with...

Terrific picture First 1080p 42-inch plasma TV

Confusing onscreen controls Light on extra features

Panasonic's large, heavy, programmable remote feels clunky, and the lower half has too many buttons, but your fingers go naturally to channel surfing and volume controls

Panasonic TH-42PZ700U HDTV Plasma Reviewed

 

This model has a solid but not extensive amount of image adjustments and features 2 HDMI, two component video and one PC input. The HDMI inputs accept a 1080p signal from a Blue-ray player but will not accept a 1080p/24 signal so the set does have its...

This plasma offers a solid black level and has good light output, so the picture has excellent contrast and rich color ; High-definition sources look very detailed, and digital noise is not a concern ; Because this is a plasma TV, it does not suffer...

The TV's film processing is only average, so you may see some digital artifacts ; The internal speakers are not very robust, so the sound quality is somewhat thin ; While the anti-reflective screen is effective, plasma is generally not as bright as LCD...

Panasonic is one of the few plasma manufacturers that currently offers 1080p at the 42-inch screen size. While this TV's features and connections aren't as generous as you might find elsewhere, it offers very good performance at a good price. Comment...

Panasonic TH-58PZ700U Plasma HDTV

 

The Basics: The 700U Series is a step down from Panasonic's top 2007 line, the 750U Series, so these TVs offer fewer features, but cost less money. Unlike the similar 750U model, this 58-inch, 1080p model lacks the Pro Setting and Studio Reference...

Panasonic TH-42PZ700U and TH-50PZ700U Plasma HDTVs

 

I wish I could say I had some clever reason for reviewing two nearly identical plasmas. Perhaps there was, but it's lost to me now. A few months ago, Panasonic asked me if I wanted to review the TH-50PZ700U, so I said sure. Then, a month or so later,...

Panasonic TH-50PZ700U Plasma TV Review

 

Suddenly there have been so many changes to our television system and it's left many people confused. Once upon a time life was simple and so many of us who now have gray hair (bald in some cases) lived with a square type TV with only and antennae or...

The TV is a good choice for watching every day HD and non HD programming. Even if you use it every day all day long, this monitor could go for 20 years.

Panasonic TH-50 PZ 700 E

 

Lovely, realistic colors and a natural, contrast-rich image; It has everything you might need, including an SD card reader; Pixel-perfect full HD resolution

The picture is not very bright; Although 24p format is supported, it judders perhaps just a little too much

This impressive 50 inch beast from Panasonic has a contrast-rich, perfectly adjusted full HD screen and performs as well as significantly pricier models, for example the Pioneer 5000 EX. As well as its truly impressive contrast range, it boasts...

Panasonic TH-42PZ700U Review

 

Panasonic TH-42PZ700U Review: Panasonic TH-42PZ700U is one of the best LCD HDTV by Panasonic. If you're deciding between a 42² or 40² HDTV, go for the 42² one. It looks much bigger compared to the 40². You will definitely enjoy it. But why Panasonic...

42? is huge even you are a distant away compared to 40? and below, Very clear vibrant image, Sound quality is good - has bass, Very good shadow details, Very clean image with little noise contouring, With high quality HDMI cable and blu-ray DVD player,...

Expensive for some, Remote control may be too complicated, Heavy @ 83.9 pounds, Only one-year-warranty

If money isn't a problem for you, Panasonic TH-42PZ700U is definitely worth the price for entertainment. Having a PS3 on Panasonic TH-42PZ700U screen is heavenly. Then again, if money isn't an issue, you might consider the Samsung LN46A550
