Panasonic TH-42PX50U 42: Plasma TV
If you want your new TV to maximize the HDTV experience, the 42" TH-42PX50U belongs on your short list.
This is a "Digital Cable Ready" HDTV, which means it can receive analog and digital signals via cable, as well as over-the-air broadcasts. To get the most from the built-in cable tuner, you'll need a credit card-sized "CableCARD." The CableCARD slot on the rear of the set gives you the option of digital cable reception without a set-top box (ask your cable provider for details). With a CableCARD, there's one less component to hook up and you can do all your channel-changing using the TV remote. Usually, picture quality is a little cleaner, too.
This set employs a new pixel-by-pixel video processing system that increases horizontal resolution by 30%. Videophiles will also love this TV for something it lacks — a picture artifact called "false contouring." It's a common problem with digital displays where the transitions between different shades of the same color are too sharp and abrupt, giving scenes an artificially layered look. Panasonic's latest panels can reproduce 8.6 billion colors in total, with over 2,000 shades of gradation. Images look smooth and naturally "right," and scenes have greater depth.
