Panasonic TC-P42X1 Review

Plasma TV Buying Guide
21 June 2013
  • Conclusion: The Panasonic 42X1 has a standard feature set for a TV of this price and quality range. You get a decent but not thorough calibration menu, 3 HDMI inputs and an SD card slot, a flimsy table top stand, a non-backlit remote, good sizing algorithms for video aspect. The unit does have discrete picture settings for each input which is an upgrade feature. There is but not great sound quality and aesthetics.There is no computer input.

Why Less Is More When Shopping For A Whopping New TV

Gear Patrol
10 April 2011
  • Excerpt: Since its commercial deployment over half a century ago, no bit of household technology has enraptured the attention and the desires of man like the television. After all, we are exceptionally visual creatures. A man must love his TV; if not, he is genetically conditioned to go out (hunt) and get one (gather) that he does. It’s a biological imperative that a sub-par viewing experience is simply intolerable.
