Panasonic TC-P42S1, 42" VIERA® S1 Series 1080p plasma HDTV
Panasonic TC-P42S1, 42" VIERA® S1 Series 1080p plasma HDTV. Powers on, but no further testing was done
The 42" TC-P42S1 delivers truly stunning picture quality, yet is one of Panasonic's most affordable 1080p models. Plasma's superb picture contrast and smear-free motion continue to win over fans of fast-action sports and movies. Panasonic's new panel technology further enhances those qualities while also meeting the more stringent Energy Star 3.0 spec. Compared to last year's model, the TC-P42S1 consumes significantly less power at the same brightness level.
Panasonic's 2009 plasma TVs eliminate motion blur for a clearer picture
All 1080p HDTVs have the same number of pixels, but they don't all deliver full picture resolution at all times. Plasma and LCD TVs are equally good at displaying still images, but when the action picks up the pace, plasma has a clear advantage. Panasonic's 2009 plasmas employ improved panel drive electronics that flash the screen's pixels on and off at high speed — 25% faster than last year's models. Video motion looks effortlessly smooth and clear.
Advanced "NeoPDP" panel design improves picture contrast and black levels
Panasonic's new NeoPDP plasma technology significantly improves both picture contrast and black levels. The latest version of Panasonic's Real Black Drive System reduces the illumination level when plasma pixels shut off, yielding very deep black levels (to see an illustration, click on "more photos"). Note that the TC-P42S1's impressive 40,000:1 contrast ratio spec is "native" contrast, which is a more accurate measure of real-world performance than the much higher "dynamic" contrast spec.
Enjoy all your high-def video sources, and digital photos, too
The versatile set of audio/video connections includes three HDMI inputs for hooking up the latest high-def components. If you're using other recent Panasonic HDMI-equipped components, the VIERA Link™ system enables you to operate compatible models — like a Panasonic Blu-ray player — using only the TV's remote. A side-panel memory card slot lets you instantly share your digital photos on a big, beautiful screen, without booting up your computer.
