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.

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.

While, at first glance, there is little to differentiate this 50 inch plasma from its C1 counterpart, the truth is that Panasonic TC-P50X1 is better. For instance, while both series share the same 720p resolution, not the same thing can be said about the contrast ratio (twice as big in the X1 series), and the anti-glare screen, found in Panasonic TC-P50X1, but not in C1 models. The latter gives this particular model an upper hand when compared to U1 series, which, again, does not come with an anti-reflective coating.
