Panasonic VIERA TC-P42X3 42-Inch 720p Plasma HDTV Customer Review
Panasonic on a great run
For this hub page, we are reviewing the Panasonic VIERA TC-P42X3 42-Inch 720p Plasma HDTV. Before we go into the specifics, let us first discuss the differences between the various types of TVs available in the market.
The debate between plasma vs lcd vs led TVs has been going on for ages. It does not help the average consumer now that the 3D TV is being introduced to the market. You do not have to be a tech expert to know the differences. Just know that plasma works better in dark conditions, and LCD or LED TVs work better in bright conditions. Plasma TVs also work best with fast motion images such as sports and video games. LED and LCD can do as well however you are more likely to experience motion blur while watching a fast paced video.
Now let us move on to the actual review. The Panasonic VIERA TC-P42X3 42-Inch 720p Plasma HDTV is pretty sweet considering its features. For example, it comes with a 600Hz Sub-field drive, a VIERA image viewer, and an easy IPTV system.
As an internet-ready device, you can hook this TV up in a few minutes and watch your favorite movies on online services like Netflix. You are no longer limited to your small laptop screen to watch great movie screenings! You can also shop using various online shopping services.
With the VIERA image viewer, you can connect your SD card and instantly view any recent videos or photos you have taken on your camera. What a great way to share your photos with friends and families. You can even set a slideshow to make the photo viewing experience even more enjoyable.
The 600Hz Sub-field drive enables viewers to watch HD motion images with great clarity. I already mentioned earlier that you will experience less motion blurs with Plasma TVs. With this sub-field drive in place, you are not going to come across a lot of TVs that can display images which appear to be cleaner and less grainy.
So what did customers have to say about this TV? One customer praised the reduction in pixelation. He also mentioned that there was a faster refresh rate, hence the images appeared extremely clear. On the other hand, glares were a big issue for some customers. If you want to use this TV at its full capacity then you need to make sure you have space in your house where everything is relatively dark (no sunlight)! So what do you think about the Panasonic VIERA TC-P42X3 42-Inch 720p Plasma HDTV?
