The Panasonic TH-42PHD8UK is a flat panel display that uses the plasma technology and has a screen size of 42 inches when measured diagonally. It is basically from the professional series of plasmas and is sold mostly to various businesses. The set was priced at just below $3000 at the time of release. All the professional series models have been quoted to use the same glass as the consumer models. If this is true then even the consumer models should be equally appealing. The styling of the cabinet has been given a very simple and modest yet elegant look. It comes without speakers and the all black cabinet is just 40 inches in width.
The 42-inch screen size is very popular among the people as the size and price both are quite reasonable. The native display resolution offered by the Panasonic TH-42PHD8UK is 1024 by 768, which is quite close to high definition but falls a bit short. The negative side of the set is that it is just a monitor and comes with the primary analog inputs. Also it does not have any tuners either digital or analog. Ironically, a consumer model the TH-42PX50U has all the above said features and yet is priced the same. The clarity offered by the set was certainly better than 480p even though it cannot be compared to the high definition. The black levels too were much better for a plasma. is among the nation’s largest plasma and LCD TVs replacement parts providers.
