Best ~42" plasmas?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
What are the favorite 42" plasma these days? I know the smaller panels aren't as good as the 50" inch panels, but are there some recommended 42" sets?

Thanks!

It likely starts and ends with the Panny ut50...

I'm really hoping for a higher end 42" in 2013 though...it could allow for the best pic quality of any display as it would likely be brighter and punchier than its 50"+ counterparts.

I have a Samsung pn43e450 in the bedroom and the picture quality is very good. Only 720p though.

THe only announced 42" for 2013 is the S series from Panasonic I believe.....So your choice will be limited if you decide to go the Plasma route and need a TV that size....

Panasonic is releasing two new 42" models in early March - the TC-P42X60 ("720p"), and TC-P42S60 (1080p).

You can barely tell the difference between 1080 and 720 at 42 inches though right?

Yeah I've heard at less than 50 inches you can't see the difference.

On a 42" I can see the difference at about 7-8 ft. They have rectangular pixels and the screen door effect is enough for me not to want a 720p. I'd suggest the 42S60(1080p) when it comes out. When they come out go take a look for yourself and see, ymmv.
