Panasonic VIERA TH-42PZ85U 42" Widescreen Full 1080p HDTV Plasma w/PC Input image
 
(based on 3 ratings)
Brand: Panasonic
Located in: Plasmas
The 42" TH-42PZ85U delivers a stellar picture, yet is one of their more affordable 1080p models. The "PZ85" models display strikingly cinematic images with velvety blacks and an ultra-high contrast ratio of 30,000:1. And that's the "native" contrast ratio, which is a better indicator of real-world performance than the more common "dynamic" contrast spec. The TH-42PZ85U's screen is a pixel-perfect match so you won't miss any details. High-def video looks stunningly crisp and clear even as close as five or six feet away.

    Comments about Panasonic Panasonic VIERA TH-42PZ85U 42" Widescreen Full 1080p HDTV Plasma w/PC Input:

    Like many people, I did a wealth of research before making my first HD TV purchase. I meticulously reviewed every spec comparing them to other sets, both by Panasonic and other manufacturers. A lot of specs and features, I learned, are pure marketing. It wasn't until I started actually visiting stores and looking with my own eyes that I started to realize what was hype and what was true. It also helped that a friend has owned a Panasonic plasma for a couple years and I have always been impressed with the picture quality. In the end it was a no-brainer for me - the price to quality ratio was obvious.

    I've had the set now for 2 weeks. I have a Panasonic Blu-Ray player connected to it (BD35). Blu-Ray movies look fantastic, as does HD cable programming. As I write this I struggle to think of any weak points and I can't. If there are, they are minor an forgettable. Set up was straightforward and minimal. The on-screen interface is simple and unobtrusive, with easy to navigate menus.
