The Samsung PS42b451 has the same great looks as ever but now comes with an even better picture quality.
Brand new 600Hz Subfield Motion technology pulses the picture for superior clarity and even faster response. Wide Colour Enhancer 2 gives greater realism with brighter colour and enhanced colour scale. Once again, Samsung's unique DNIe + picture enhancement system features strongly and combines with 100Hz technology to give clarity, depth and smooth motion. Improving the picture still further is Filterbright - a patented, two-way daylight filter that absorbs external light as it approaches the plasma screen and transmits internal light, clearly increasing the contrast levels and preventing unwanted reflection. Combined together these powerful processors help to give the Samsung PS-42B451 a stunning dynamic contrast ratio of 2,000,000:1!
Although no match for a separates system, the PS42b451 boasts a comprehensive audio specification. SRS TruSurround HD offers high quality surround sound effect processing which you'll usually only find on much more expensive TVs. Combined with the "Down firing" speaker system and Dolby Digital Plus, you'll find it gives the Samsung PS42b451 a smooth, spacious sound that's less boxy-sounding than many TVs. Finally, if you're planning to use this plasma TV as part of your home cinema system, then you'll be pleased to find an optical digital output - perfect for the highest quality audio connection to your AV receiver.
In terms of connections, the PS42B451 has everything you'd expect plus more besides. Twin rear-mounted HDMI (and one side-mounted) sockets allow for the connection of 3 High Definition sources, such as an HD-TV box, HD camcorder and Blu-ray. In addition to this, the PS42b451 boasts SCART and component connections for your analogue sources. Furthermore, the PC input makes this attractive TV the perfect complement to your home computer.
Samsung were one of the first TV companies to offer a deep, gloss black finish with curved edges throughout their range and, even today, there are few that do it better. The PS42b451 is still one of the best looking TVs in its class.
Good-looking, packed with features and better performing than ever, the Samsung PS42b451 is set to take the budget plasma market by storm!
