At A Glance

The first 42-inch plasma 1080p set is great where it counts--in the picture. It earned particularly high marks for HD.

Manufacturer’s Description

The Panasonic TH-42PZ700U is a contender for best 42" plasma picture available. The world's only 42" 1080p plasma panel has over two-and-a-half times the pixel count of conventional 42" plasmas. The screen's ultra-fine pixels show remarkable detail, depth and texture.
