Panasonic TCP42G25


The Panasonic TC-P42G25 42" 1080p Plasma TV may be exactly what you're looking for. Its 42" diagonally measured screen straddles the line between midsize and large sets. If you'll be viewing it from about five to ten feet away you'll find you're close enough to enjoy a good-sized picture but far enough away that you can enjoy the image without noticing the individual pixels that create it.Minimize
