Panasonic TH-42PX60U 42″ Plasma HDTV

Panasonic TH-42PX60U 42

The Geeks first featured an incredible LCD HDTV by Aquos so we figured we should feature a plasma display as well. This Panasonic is priced well and has become a best seller through online retailers… probably because of winning the consumer reports ratings.

If you don’t trust consumer reports, check out the user ratings on Amazon. Out of 35 ratings, 29 were 5 stars and 3 people gave the set 4 stars. That’s pretty impressive.

The TH-42PX60U 42″ Diagonal Plasma HDTV gives you deep blacks, bright whites and 29 billion colors — it’s an image so close to real life, you’ll swear you were in your favorite programs instead of just watching them.
