Panasonic Viera TH-PX80U review: Panasonic Viera TH-PX80U

 

Panasonic Viera TH-PX80U

Relatively inexpensive; produces a deep shade of black; accurate initial color temperature; solid connectivity with three HDMI inputs; handsome, understated exterior.

Color decoding accentuates red; inaccurate primary color of green; ineffective noise reduction.

Panasonic's TH-42PX80U 42-inch plasma sets the picture quality-to-value standard for entry-level plasma TVs.

Panasonic TH-42PX80 review

 

This is the kind of TV people will move house to accommodate – available at a bargain price

An excellent big screen with big-name cachet for under a grand. What else do you want?

Panasonic TH-42PX80 review

 

A superb 42 inch talent from Panasonic

Outstanding pictures ; Good connectivity ; Price

HDMIs not v1.3 ; Colours could be more vibrant ; Occasional orange tone to rich reds

Panasonic’s seemingly unstoppable plasma roll continues apace with this stunner despite LCD’s best efforts

Terrific value and a high-quality set – it's not Full HD, but at this price, you won't miss it

Panasonic TH-42PX80

 

The 42PX80 is also the only TV in this group not to carry a full HD resolution (something plasma finds hard to achieve on relatively small screens). But happily that appears to be the only area where the 42PX80 falls short of its rivals in cold...

Great value, excellent picture quality, good feature count

Red colours can look a touch orange, HDMIs can't handle Deep Color

Panasonic TH42PX80 Review: 42" Viera 24p 100Hz Plasma

 

Update: The Panasonic TH42PX80 has now been replaced by the Panasonic TX-P37X10 & TX-P42X10.

Excellent black level and shadow detail ; Fluid motion handling with minimal blurring ; Displays 1080p/24 video signal without telecine judder

Native resolution only 1024 x 768 (i.e. not true HD) ; Does not deinterlace film-based material properly ; Exhibits posterisation particularly with poor source

Armed with native 24fps playback and marginally better blacks, the Panasonic TH42PX80 represents an evolutionary rather than revolutionary improvement over its predecessor the PX70 series.

Panasonic TH42PX80

 

Excellent value plasma now with even more features ..

With some additional features, the TH42PX80 still represents an excellent value plasma package. Full HD models from Panasonic with the latest image processing technology are more accomplished, but the price to performance equation in this case is hard...

Excellent Quality

 

NewEggs's delivery was so fast that we were stunned. I don't know how NewEgg does it but virtually every order gets here within 2 days or less. We were a bit nervous about ordering a plasma television online but when it arrived, the box and television...

We purchased this television for my 85 year old mother-in-law as a replacement for the aging 25 in. tube television that she's had for years. The picture quality is amazing but the best part is that this television has opened up her world, as she had...

Absolutely none

Freakin Amazing

 

Panasonic is the LEADER of Plasma TVs. Dont hesitate to buy this. You wont regret it!

Price, picture, sound... There is sooo much good to say about this set. I got it 36 hours after placing the order and have it hooked up to an HD cable box. The picture is unreal! all the settings are extremely nice as well. doesnt put out too much...

I was a bit skeptical about plasmas life span but these are rated at 100,000 hours. realistically take half of that so 50000 hours, thats still over 10 years of every day use and abuse. I jsut hope that panasonics mathematical calculations are correct
