q&a

With its stunning picture quality, built-in HDTV tuner, and groundbreaking Digital Cable Ready design, Panasonic's 42" TH-42PX25U is one of the most advanced, future-ready plasmas available, yet it boasts a compact all-in-one design - no outboard tuner/switcher box is needed.

 

The built-in HDTV tuner receives over-the-air and cable HD programming. The back panel's "CableCARD" slot allows digital cable reception without a set-top box (ask your cable provider for details). Panasonic was the first manufacturer to receive certification from CableLabs for an HDTV set that can receive digital cable TV services directly.

 

With so many plasma TVs available, from brands both familiar and new, how do you identify the top models? Well, only a handful of companies actually manufacture the plasma "glass" and Panasonic is one of them. Panasonic's plasma know-how makes a huge difference. The TH-42PX25U delivers some of the deepest blacks, highest contrast, and smoothest grayscaling you'll see at any price.

 

One of the factors that keep some plasmas from accurately displaying the ultra-crisp detail of high-def images is an artifact called "false contouring," where transitions between different shades of the same color are too sharp and abrupt. Panasonic's latest "billion color" panels have 1,536 shades of gradation, to minimize false contouring and create a smooth, natural appearance.

 

The TH-42PX25U has six A/V inputs, including dual component video inputs and an HDMI digital audio/video input. 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, TiVo recorder, or video game console. There's even a front-panel input for your laptop PC. This TV is a source for great audio, too, with an optical digital output for sending a multichannel Dolby Digital bitstream to your A/V receiver.
