  • Conclusion: The NEC 42XR4 offers the best picture quality of any 42-inch plasma TV we have seen to date. But its premium price doesn't include many extras, the remote is near-useless in the dark, and to get the most out of it you'll need to have it professionally calibrated.
  • Pros: Exceptional image quality. Comprehensive display control options.
  • Cons: Remote lacks backlight. No extras bundled in. Pricey.

NEC PlasmaSync 42XR4 review Review

21 April 2006
  • Summary: This is easily NEC's best plasma screen to date, improving on picture quality in all departments over its predecessors. Its lack of domesticity on the connection front and the high standards of some of its competition both count against it, however
  • Pros: Digital connectivity, Sharpness and flexibility of picture with standard and high definition
  • Cons: Black levels aren't the best, Colours a touch muted, No tuner or Scarts built in
