Toshiba 42HP84 42 in. HDTV Plasma Television

By James Wong

Price: Around $2,199.00

Pros: great picture, great value
Cons: speakers are fixed, remote somewhat dodgy

Picture is breathtaking. Progressive scan DVD is great, but real HD content is simply amazing. Tune it to discover HD and leave it! Colors are brilliant and easy to adjust. standard cable feed picture is "ok" at best, so investigate your local HDTV offerings before diving in!

Menus are easy to navigate and adjust. Onboard speakers are impressive to say the least, but are not removeable if you have a home theater setup. So they make for a fairly large "footprint".

The illuminated remote is a powerful tool indeed. It would be nicer if it had separate "mode" buttons for DVD/TV/Cable instead of one button you use to scroll. cumbersome but really my only complaint.

You won't regret if you by this one.
