The Panasonic TH-42PD25 is a high definition television, which uses the plasma technology and has a screen size of 42 inches when measured diagonally. The black levels offered by the set were fantastic and one of the best for any plasma. As in most of the cases the excellent black levels have had a major contribution in rendering the high contrast ratios that the set offers. It would have been an added advantage if the set could have been a little brighter without affecting the black levels. After calibration, the picture looked even better with the accurate colors and a highly accurate gray scale especially while viewing high definition content.

As far as the performance of the set is concerned it is better than most of the plasmas in most of the categories. It does not show any quantization errors although it crushes the whites to a high extent. This means that whenever a bright image is shown on screen the most of the details. For example, the picture of a white cloud will not have any details and just appear as a white patch. Reducing the contrast just makes the image darker with increasing the detail levels. The set was not perfect in the transition from light to dark but was much better than most other plasma sets. is among the nation’s largest plasma and LCD TVs replacement parts providers.
