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-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

Panasonic Viera TH-42PZ700B 42in Plasma TV

 

Panasonic breaks new ground with a 42in 1080p plasma TV.

Panasonic has created something very special with the TH-42PZ700B. Not only is this the first 42in plasma TV to sport a 1,920 x 1,080 panel, but it also exhibits superior picture quality to any 42in HDTV I’ve seen. Feed this screen high quality, high...

Panasonic TH-42PZ700 review

 

A sublime example of plasma enriched by a 1080p resolution

Great pictures ; Plenty of inputs ; Compehensive futureproofing

Some negligible plasma niggles ; A bit pricey

This superb and impeccably specified performer justifies every penny of its hefty price tag

Panasonic TH-42PZ700A

 

The Panasonic Viera TH-42PZ700A is an excellent 1080p 42-inch plasma going for a bargain price, but is a little short from the benchmark product we expected.

Full 1080p resolution ; Great picture quality ; Anti-reflective filter ; Three HDMI ports ; Cheap

Some minor picture defects

Conclusion Despite some very minor problems, this is still an excellent television for the money. Detail, contrast and colour are amazing, and little touches such as the glare-proof panel make this an intriguing proposition. It may not appeal to the...

Panasonic TH-42PZ700U 42in 1080p plasma TV

 

The Panasonic TH-42PZ700U is a 1080p 42in plasma that outshone all competitors in image quality. Indeed, our jury rated its picture higher than that of any other TV.

The Panasonic TH-42PZ700U isn't cheap, and you don't get a lot of neat extra features for your money, but it does have an excellent picture.
