Panasonic TC-P42G10 Plasma TV Review

Panasonic TC-P42G10 Plasma TVHaving a feature packed plasma TV in only 42 inches seems like Panasonic had a good idea about how to impress customers that are not all that crazy about large models. For a 42 inch plasma TV, Panasonic TC-P42G10 comes with all the fancy features of the series, with exceptional black level performance, and THX certification. The latter is the main dish that the company has brought forward for this Panasonic plasma TV, especially when compared with the S1 series from the same manufacturer. G10 models are particularly good, and they are outrun only by the V10 series, launched later by the company. It is worth mentioning that it is a nice touch to have Viera Cast features and Amazon on Demand access on a plasma TV like this one.

Panasonic TC-P42U1 Plasma TV Review

Panasonic TC-P42U1 Plasma TVPanasonic is the name of the company that decided to take over the market of plasma TVs in 2009. This would have not been possible, unless the manufacturer had thought of complying with each and every request coming from potential buyers, no matter the size of their wallet. This is how competitive low entry products entered the market, and claimed it for Panasonic, and Panasonic TC-P42U1 is just one 42 inch plasma TV released this year, to justify the company’s greed for market share. Rest assured that for a Panasonic plasma TV, the model reviewed here has all the basics and even a bit more, all at a price that would have you take a second look to see what the fuss is all about.

Panasonic TC-P42X1 Plasma TV Review

Panasonic TC-P42X1Panasonic has taken its part of the market for low entry plasma models with series such as X1, U1 and C1. While one cannot expect to see in a 42 inch plasma TV like Panasonic TC-P42X1, all the features that are to be found only in mid range or high entry models, the general set of features this product comes equipped with does not disappoint. This Panasonic plasma TV uses the panel the company implemented last year, and it sports 720p resolution, like C1 series, but it has a superior contrast ratio, standing on the same level with the U1 series. To all these, it should be added a competitive price, which makes of Panasonic TC-P42X1 a reasonable buy.

Panasonic TC-P42C1 Plasma TV Review

Panasonic TC-P42C1 Plasma TVIn its endeavor of launching plasma models fit for every pocket, Panasonic designed C1, a low entry series. While the 42 inch plasma TV model from the C1 series comes with a price tag that doesn’t make anyone roll their eyes, its features are only run of the mill, as it happens with most low entry products. Panasonic TC-P42C1 is clearly aimed at the budget minded consumer, interested in getting the basics fulfilled when shopping for a plasma, and not at all about fancy traits one would find in a more expensive Panasonic plasma TV. Seeing things from this perspective, C1 can hardly be compared with G10 or S1 series from the same manufacturer.
