Another Panasonic TH-42PX50U Plasma TV Review

We've recently brought you a review of the Panasonic TH-42PX50U from BusinessWeek. Now there's another review out from DesignTechnica that reiterates the positive review from BusinessWeek:

The TH-42PX50U is a pleasure to watch, easy to operate and packed with the essential connectors and features. It could use another HDMI input and front or side inputs for external sources, but overall it’s a great TV at a great price. Panasonic doesn’t list a lifetime rating for this TV in the specs, but if it did, those hours would be at the normal picture mode versus the vivid setting most people will opt for. The brighter setting will impact the life of the phosphors so buyers should keep that in mind.

Bottom line: Anyone seriously in the market for a TV today who thinks they can’t afford HD needs a price check. With plasmas selling for around $2,500 and big-screen CRTs starting under a grand, cost is no longer a significant barrier to HDTV. Congress’ recent passage of the budget reconciliation bill that cements an analog shutoff date for 2009 makes those price shifts all the more welcome.

The TH-42PX50U is a terrific value.

If you're seriously looking at Plasma TVs, be sure to check out the TH-42PX50U.
