The Panasonic TH42PX60 was one of the best selling plasma TVs of all time, so its replacement had to be good. The TH42PX70 is exactly that - and more.
Using the familiar Viera picture enhancements, the Panasonic TH42PX70 has a picture that is as bright, crisp and realistic as its famous predecessor. With a contrast ratio of 10,000:1 there's certainly never a dull moment with this plasma TV.
Where the new PX70 truly moves ahead of the PX60 is in terms of 1080P High Definition signals. With Blu-ray and HD-DVD more popular than ever before, you'll be pleased to hear that the TH42PX70 has been optimised to make the most of 1080P, or Full HD, signals. With 1080P digital processing and re-mastering chip-sets, you'll always get optimum performance from your HD signals. Although the TH42PX70 is not a true Full HD 1080P TV, the onboard processors are so good that the differences may be less than you might imagine.
As you'd expect from a quality plasma TV, the TH42PX70PED has a wide range of inputs. Twin HDMI sockets handle HD sources, whilst a pair of SCART sockets and an RCA component ensure you'll get the best from analogue signals, too. For gaming fans, you'll also find a PC input - the results are fantastic in combination with the Motion Pattern Noise Reduction system.
Rounding off this stunning TV is a completely new look from its forbearer. Gone is the silver casing, to be replaced by a contemporary black one. With the frame made as slim as possible, the TH42PX70 has a more discreet appearance than ever before. Good looks combined with a better picture than ever before: the Panasonic TH42PX70 looks set to carry on the success of its predecessor: and then some!
