Need the Smallest 1080p Plasma Monitor

Hi,
I'm looking for a small size plasma monitor or TV not LCD/LED for testing purposes not for entertainment, it will be mounted on top of the work bench to the wall as if it is a computer screen, Video test signals range from 480i to 1080p, Looking for sizes that range from 26" - 32" if possible, Thanks

While a few 720p plasmas are available in sizes smaller than 40", the smallest full 1080p plasmas I am aware of are various 42" models from Panasonic, including the TC-P42S60 and TC-P42UT50.

I can confirm that the smallest 1080p Plasmas ever made were 42 inches and only Panasonic made them.

If you need something smaller than 42", then it will have to be an LCD TV.

Both LG and Samsung even sold a 32'' version, but that was years ago. For an example: LG-32PG6000-32in-Plasma-TV-review

There were plasmas smaller than 42", but they weren't 1080p.

Don't tug on that, you never know what it might be attached to...

True. I could only assume that 1080p isn't etched in stone, in terms of his requirements which is 32'' or smaller.

Thanks guys for the replies, looks like I will be heading the LCD way after all, Do you guys recommend any 24"/26" monitor that accepts RCA/S-Video/Component/HDMI and has a good black levels, Don't care about brightness the work area is dark, TV is ok but I prefer a monitor that accepts the above inputs, Sorry if it went off topic as this forum is for plasma.

I'm virtually positive that you won't find a current LCD TV that has an S-Video input. I haven't seen that offered in years.

And most LCDs in that size category probably have a single shared RCA Component Video/Composite Video input so you can only use either/or on that one. If you need both, look at the detailed specs on your candidates.

Some of these TVs have only one HDMI, while others have two or even three HDMIs.




Since Plasmas are no longer being made, it's perfectly fine to ask us Plasma People about the alternatives. Many of us have already transitioned over to LCD. I recently picked up a BB Insignia 24" 1080p LCD TV for watching morning news on my home desk and it actually looks pretty good!

You're right Randy, they don't make LCD panels with s-video input anymore, I visited all my local stores, I did do an online search however and found HP LP2475W monitor that has all the inputs and it is 1200x1920 panel, I will hunt down a good used one.

Try searching for S-video adapters. There are all different kinds available that would allow S-video use with a monitor that lacks S-video input.

No I don't want to use any kind of adapter, It's for testing it has to have it's own processing chip, Like I mentioned above the HP LP2475W is the perfect monitor for me and it has a good reviews.

Got the HP LP2475W man never thought that an old LCD technology would perform like that, I'm very satisfied.
