Panasonic TH-PHD7UY 42-Inch Flat Panel Plasma TV, Black review

The Panasonic 42" plasma TV provides a cinema-feel for your home theater. The 16:9 screen aspect ratio lets you view programming in a variety of formats, up to- and including Widescreen. With a resolution of 1024 x 768 and 3620 millions of colors, you'll experience vivid and vibrant colors. Adjustable color temperature lets you customize the display to your taste.

The built-in receiver (NTSC, PAL and SECAM) gathers broadcast signals. Add a HDTV receiver, and the TV becomes a HDTV monitor, with stunning clarity. View DVDs and HDTV broadcasts as they were meant to be seen.

With high-end features like surround sound, parental control via the V-chip, and a Closed Caption decoder, this TV makes for a user-friendly, customizable system. Stereo speakers, picture-in-picture and a sleep timer round out the standard features.

The HDMI connector, which caries high-quality digital video and audio in a single wire, helps clear the cable mess from behind your TV. And the wide variety of input options (S Video, Component and Composite,) enable you to connect to most any device.
