Planar PD420


The PD420 is commendably easy to use, considering its complexity

High-resolution pictures ; Flexible ; Can work as AV switchbox

Needs calibration to look its best, the monitor configuration may not suit all

Final tricks worthy of mention include a hard-coated, anti-glare surface, an exceptionally robust, diamond-polished, brushed aluminium finish, high-definition picture in picture and 1080p/24fps support, plus extreme picture adjustment flexibility

Planar PD420 42in LCD


Once again Planar proves that there's no shame in making a pricey, premium-class product.

A round-up of all the breaking news and hands-on previews of the latest tech from IFA 2011 in Berlin.
