With its excellent picture quality, built-in over-the-air HDTV tuner, and flexible Digital Cable Ready design, Panasonic's 42" TH-42PD25U is an up-to-the-minute plasma TV. Its 42" screen is big enough to suit most living rooms, yet its space-efficient design could also make it the ultimate bedroom TV. This high-value plasma is an all-in-one design - it can tune in over-the-air and cable HD channels without a separate tuner box!


The TH-42PD25U has EDTV (Enhanced Definition TV) picture resolution - it displays all signals at 480p. Video sources ranging from low quality (VHS tapes) to the highest quality (HDTV) are automatically converted to 480p by Panasonic's acclaimed "scaling" circuitry. Although this set doesn't have true HD resolution, most people would be fooled by its extraordinarily sharp, clean picture. It's a honey.


Panasonic is one of only a handful of companies that actually manufactures the plasma "glass." Their superior plasma technology delivers some of the deepest blacks, highest contrast ratio, and smoothest grayscaling you'll see anywhere. The TH-42PD25U is among the latest-generation designs, capable of reproducing over a billion colors.


This is also one well-connected plasma. Panasonic provides six A/V inputs, including dual component video inputs, plus an HDMI connection for your highest-quality video signals. For regular video sources, you'll find two sets of rear A/V inputs and a set of front inputs (all with S-video) so you can easily connect a camcorder, VCR, video game console, etc. You can view standard 4:3 material with vertical bars on the sides, or choose one of the viewing modes that stretches and/or zooms a 4:3 image to fill up the panel's wide screen.
