So we’ve got another Panasonic Viera to check out today, and I’m actually rather intrigued by it. Not only is it one of the lowest priced plasma televisions I’ve ever seen, it’s also one of the lowest priced televisions I’ve seen, period. That by itself is enough to interest me, so let’s see if we’ve got a killer deal on our hands with the Panasonic TC-P42C2!
The Panasonic TC-P42C2 is a forty two inch 720p plasma television that offers two ten watt speakers, a 24p playback mode, two HDMI inputs, two composite video inputs, four audio inputs, two component video inputs, a media card reader, motion pattern noise reduction and Viera Link.
Now, sure, two ten watt speakers will be a bit limited in sound. That’s the nature of the beast there. And it’s a 720p, so it’s not going to be the awe-inspiring masterpiece of sight you’re probably longing for either. But what it is is an incredible source for people with older components (two sets of component AND composite with an outside nod to HDMI? Now that’s just dandy!), and it’s also a terrific buy. You can pick this sucker up at Best Buy for five hundred and forty bucks.
When you consider the circumstances under which this would be an awesome buy, and how seldom something that fits these circumstances comes up, you can see where, for the right person, this would be a terrific buy. Sure, it’s not the best television you’ll ever see, but at that price, all it has to be is merely pretty good. And the Panasonic TC-P42C2 is definitely pretty good.
