Panasonic TH-42PZ77U Plasma HDTV
Introduction A lot of people are ready to sound the death knoll for plasma, asserting that the technology won’t be able to keep pace with LCD, in price or volume, over the long term. Rather than try to compete with LCD in a price war, companies like Pioneer and Hitachi are positioning their plasma HDTVs as higher-end luxury items. Panasonic, meanwhile, has chosen to remain in the mid- and entry-level rings and duke it out with LCD. They landed a good punch when they became the first plasma maker to offer a true 1920 x 1080 resolution at the 42-inch screen size, a category where LCD held a clear advantage. The benefits of 1080p at this screen size are questionable at best – at least in terms of how much resolution the eye can actually see from a normal viewing distance ...

Mitsubishi Diamond Series LT-52244 LCD HDTV
The Basics: This 52-inch LCD is part of Mitsubishi’s Diamond Series, which designates the company’s highest-end offerings. It’s loaded with features, starting with Mitsubishi’s Smooth 120Hz technology, which doubles the TV’s frame rate from 60 to 120Hz to reduce motion blur. The generous connection panel includes four HDMI inputs (which accept 1080p/60 and 1080p/24) and three component video inputs, with one of each located on the side panel for easy access. The TV has dual RF inputs to access the internal tuners, plus a CableCARD slot with the TV Guide Daily program guide. There’s also a USB port for viewing digital photos. The LT-52244 has a solid amount of advanced picture adjustments, including an adjustable backlight and PerfectColor and PerfectTint features that let you precisely adjust color saturation and hue.

The Basics: Vizio has established itself as one of the leading providers of reasonably-priced LCD and plasma HDTVs, and this 52-inch, 1080p model is the largest in the company’s LCD line, replacing the GV52LF. The VX52LF may not have all the high-end features you’ll find on a more expensive panel, but it offers solid performance, ample connections and an attractively simple design. This TV’s healthy back panel sports three HDMI inputs that accept 1080p/60 (but not 1080p/24), plus two component video and one PC input that are also HD-capable. The menu includes the standard assortment of LCD picture adjustments, including several preset picture modes and color temperature settings, plus an adjustable backlight to tailor the image’s overall light output to suit your viewing environment. It also offers advanced white-balance controls, which isn’t a given at this price point. Vizio includes a lot ...

Hitachi Director’s Series P60X901 Plasma HDTV
The Basics: Hitachi was one of the first manufacturers to introduce 1080 plasma models to the market in 2007. Some of them, including this 60-inch model, have a 1920 x 1080 resolution; however, the use of a special panel technology called ALiS (Alternate Lighting of Surfaces) causes these TVs to perform more like a 1080i panel. Only alternate rows can be illuminated at the same time, so you never see the full progressive 1080-line signal on the screen. The Director Series signifies Hitachi’s highest-end models, and this TV is loaded with features. It employs Hitachi’s Reel60 technology, which functions similarly to 120Hz to reduce the appearance of judder and render smoother movement with film sources. The connection panel includes three HDMI inputs (including one on the front panel), two HD-capable component video inputs, both RS-232 and IR blasters for more advanced ...

Olevia 242T FHD LCD HDTV
The Basics: This 42-inch model, part of Olevia’s 2 Series, has a 6.5ms response time and a 1920 x 1080 resolution. There’s also a basic 242T (without the FHD tail), which has a 1366 x 768 resolution and costs $1049. The 242T FHD does not use the Silicon Optix Realta HQV processing chip found in the 65-inch 265T FHD model; instead, it uses the MTK MDDI processor. This TV has a solid connection panel, with two HDMI inputs that accept 1080p/60 and 1080p/24, two component video inputs, one PC input and one RF input to access the internal tuners. There’s also an RS-232 port for integration into an advanced control system, plus a USB port that allows you to load firmware updates obtained from the company’s website. Instead of using common picture presets like vivid, natural and movie, the 242T FHD’s picture modes ...
