Panasonic has introduced two new 1080p plasma HDTVs from their new PZ77 series. Currently available in two sizes, the 42-inch TH-42PZ77 and the larger 50-inch TH-50PZ77 are both full HD 1080p (1920×1080 pixel resolution) plasma display for the highest HD format and feature a high 10,000:1 contrast ratio for great colors and an anti-glare screen coating.
Connection wise the Panasonic PZ77 Series looks good with two HDMI inputs, 2x component, 3x s-video and 3x composite, and features EZ-Sync technology (HDMI-CEC) for controlling other home entertainment equipment from the same remote control. The PZ77 plasma’s also feature an “automatic pixel wobbling function” for anti-image retention (aka anti-burn in).
Both the Panasonic TH-42PZ77 and the TH-50PZ77 have very reasonable prices for full 1080p and large sets, especially the 42-inch model asking just $1,799.
