The Panasonic TH-42PX500U is a high definition television that uses the plasma technology and has a screen size of 42 inches when measured diagonally. This model is the successor for the Panasonic TH-42PX25 which delivered a stellar performance and also won most of the awards for the best flat panel display. The two have plenty in common although the Panasonic TH-42PX500U is more of a budget model with the massive decrease in prices. To call them similar is a stark understatement. It seems to be a case of old wine in a new bottle. Come to think of it the bottle is not all that new either as the dimensions and styling of the cabinet has more or less remained the same.
The native display resolution of the set is 1280 by 720 that is also known as 720p. Unlike the previous models, the Panasonic TH-42PX500U accepts 720p signals through both the component as well as DVI inputs. The black levels offered by the set are simply fantastic. The set has been provided with plenty of functions including the CableCard slot which enables the user to view Cable TV without having to go for additional set top boxes. The remote does most of the things that it is supposed to and is backlit. However the direct input access is missing.
