Philips 42PFL7432D LCD HDTV
The Basics: This 42-inch, 1080p LCD includes Philips’ popular Ambilight system, as well as Perfect Pixel HD processing and a USB port through which you can perform firmware updates and play JPEG/MP3 files. It does not offer the 120Hz technology found in the company’s higher-end 9732D Series. Philips’ Settings Assistant automatically makes adjustments to picture controls by showing you a series of split-screen images; as you select which image you prefer, the TV adjusts the picture parameters accordingly. This TV offers a decent amount of image adjustments, including direct access to white-balance controls, but it lacks an adjustable backlight, offering only a light sensor that automatically adjusts image brightness based on your room’s lighting conditions. The connection panel lacks a PC input, but includes three HDMI inputs that accept 1080p/60 and 1080p/24. In addition to a digital audio output (a common feature ...

Runco PlasmaWall XP-103DHD Plasma HDTV
The Basics: For the person who has 103 diagonal inches of wall space and a wad of cash burning a hole in a pocket, the 103-inch XP-103DHD is the pinnacle of Runco’s plasma lineup. This is a two-piece system that consists of the 103-inch plasma monitor, which does not contain any TV tuners, and a separate DHD controller that houses the connection panel and video processing. The DHD controller uses Runco’s ViViX II processing to scale all sources to the panel’s 1080p resolution. Features include 16-bit processing and advanced ISF calibration modes that your installer can configure for both daytime and nighttime viewing. The system has five aspect ratio options (16:9, 4:3, Letterbox, Cinema, and VirtualWide), as well as an Input Position menu that allows you to fine-tune the image’s horizontal/vertical position, height, width and overscan (from one to 10 percent; there ...

Panasonic TH-50PZ750U Plasma HDTV
The Basics: The 750U Series is Panasonic’s top-of-the-line 2007 plasma series; as such, it is priced slightly higher than the norm for Panasonic TVs. What distinguishes this higher-end line is the inclusion of two advanced picture modes: the Pro Setting and Studio Reference mode. The Pro Setting grants access to advanced controls to professionally calibrate the TV, while the Studio Reference mode is designed to, as Panasonic puts it, “provide the exact color reproduction of reference monitors used in film editing studios.” The TH-50PZ750U is a 50-inch, 1080p model that has thin side-panel speakers and a glossy black cabinet with chrome accents. Like many new Panasonic models, this TV sports an SD card slot through which you can display photos and view AVCHD video; it’s also compatible with the GalleryPlayer system that lets you display professional photographs and works of art. This ...

JVC Procision LT-47X898 LCD HDTV
The Basics: JVC’s Procision line represents the company’s highest-end offerings in both the TV and projector markets. These products were developed for the custom-installation and high-end consumer channels, and they feature JVC’s most advanced technologies. First and foremost, in the case of this 47-inch 1080p model, is the inclusion of Clear Motion Drive II 120Hz technology, which doubles the TV’s frame rate from 60 to 120Hz to reduce motion blur. The TV also uses JVC’s 32-bit Genessa processing chip and a 10-bit panel, and features a number of advanced picture controls.  The Theater Pro II menu offers advanced color, detail, noise-reduction and gamma controls. The energy-saver control is actually an adjustable backlight. Smart Picture adjusts the image’s brightness, based on the average picture level of the content, while the Smart Sensor adjusts the image’s brightness based on your room’s lighting conditions. ...

Samsung LN-T4071F LCD HDTV
Introduction I find it amazing how far video quality has come in such a short amount of time. It seems only yesterday that I was reading and lusting over flat panel EDTVs that cost more than I made in a year to today’s endless buffet of HD sets at prices my 16-year-old brother can afford. It appears, at least for the time being, that 1080p is the Holy Grail for all things HD video. However, not wanting to rest on their laurels, manufacturers have pioneered new ways of making 1080p stronger, faster, better. Now, your 1080p display has to have 120Hz refresh rate and be able to accept a native 24p signal from today’s leading-edge HD sources. I was first introduced to 120Hz earlier this year with the Sony Bravia KDS-55A3000 rear-projection TV, which I thought was utterly fantastic. I was ...
