Panasonic VIERA TC-P42U2
Released May, 2010
The Pros:User friendly setup includes full on-screen explanations of what the various options are for. Display is bright enough to deal with any possible lighting conditions, can adjust automatically.
The Cons:Default Game and Vivid settings can make the brightness overwhelming. Using a PC through HDMI at 1080p looks pixelated, left and right edges get cut off. Speakers have almost no bass range.
The Panasonic VIERA TC-P42U2 is one of two VIERA Plasma HDTVs announced in 2010 as part of the VIERA U2 series. The 42” TC-P42U2 features 1080p full high-definition resolution with Panasonic’s 600Hz Sub-Field Drive and an anti-reflective filter for utilizing the television in ultra-bright rooms.
