The upcoming Panasonic Viera TH-42PV500A is a really big 42-inch plasma tv. Check out the review over at CnetAsia.
Packs quite a good choice of inputs and outputs and looks good enough for the plasma lovers.
The 42-inch TH-42PV500A widescreen plasma leads the charge and is instantly recognisable as a Viera, thanks to the shiny black frame surrounding the large screen and the slightly curving bottom. The front of the TH-42PV500A is clutter free, having very few buttons or obtrusive logos to distract. The result is another design winner from Panasonic, and should look impressive in any living room whether wall mounted or on the supplied silver stand.
Perhaps the most significant addition is the HDMI input, which allows you to use the digital video/audio connector to hook the TH-42PV500A to other gear. Other inputs include four composite inputs, two S-Video, two components, and PC input. It also has an SD memory card slot on the front. When it comes to sound, the TH-42PV500A features two tweeters each on either side of the screen, while two woofers are located below.
