Panasonic Viera TH-42PV500


LCD televisions have been hogging the limelight recently and it's easy to forget that for all their glory they're only now catching up to the level of...

Superb image quality, HDMI input, high definition

Could do with more in-depth image controls for the tweakers out there

One of the best plasma units we have seen - and good value too

Everything's integrated in this streamlined set: from the single HDMI input to the digital TV tuner. You can even view video footage via the recordable SD card slot

Blessed with more curves than a J.Lo video, the Panasonic combines great looks with a hugely enjoyable picture

Panasonic TH-42PV500


Part of Panasonic's much-heralded Viera range, the 42PV500 looks sensational in its crisp, black, glossy suit - especially if you splurge a bit extra on Panasonic's matching floorstanding cabinet.

Cracking looks, stunning - and unusually source-flexible - picture quality, superb sonics

Slight grid-like artefacts occasionally visible over some backgrounds

"Stunning HD Plasma"


I can not believe my eyes, what a stunning picture whether running SD or HD!! Using a Hotchip HD STB with DVI cable. DVDs also look beautiful on the Panasonic. Got my 42" model for $4080 at JB in Perth. Great deal, great TV.
