Panasonic TH42PX50U plasma HDTV

Here is another review of this popular Panasonic 42″ Plasma. There is also another earlier review here. This time, Businessweek gives this unit a once over, and stamp her with 4 out of 5 stars.

Here’s the rundown:
The Good
Excellent picture, with near-3-D imaging

The Bad
Visual “noise” when transitioning from black to lighter colors

The Bottom Line
One of the best plasmas in its class, with a relatively low price

“While there are some noticeable omissions from the Panasonic TH-42PX50U that make it less than ideal for people worried about future connectivity, it’s an outstanding performer in terms of image quality — and at a price that won’t break the bank. Few would be unhappy adding it to their home theater, or using it as a second set in the bedroom.”

Yep, this is easily one of the most popular 42-inch plasma screens available. It’s not perfect, but it would be a great way to get into the home theater game now, without having to sell your children.

I have seen this unit priced very competitively online:
