Panasonic TX-PV42V10 has a very slim design, as NeoPDP plasma panels offer a compact and elegant overall display. The widest part of the Panasonic TX-P42V10 screen measures just 8.5 cm. It starts at the top, measures 5.5cm, and the chassis part houses many design features.

That part of the design includes the internal speakers, connection ports, and processing circuitry. The overall design is sharp, efficient, and elegant. A slim, frameless look with silver strip accents on the top and a polished silver pedestal on the bottom. The compact-looking 42-inch plasma screen is also perfect for reducing weight and power consumption.

A glance at the options screen shows the standard display methods. Normal view, Cinema, Dynamic and Game are present, but in addition to these, the Panasonic TX-P42V10 also has one more. The THX display mode offers great clarity and sharpness, conforming to THX quality standards. There is also an Ethernet port for various network functions, as well as the television itself with four HDMI ports.

There is also an SD card reader for reading multimedia files, tuners for analog, as well as Freeview and Freesat, and a digital audio output.

Many call this the best “web TV” feature seen to date. With the media server role, you can not only access this content, but share it with your network, in those formats. There is a great direct playback function with AVC-HD using the SD card, and also DivX files.

Another function allows to expand the videos to full screen, the quality depends on the actual video format.
