NEW NEC HD Plasma

Recommended Posts

This site was listed in the thread of last week

“New NEC Plasmas, PX-50XR4W looks sweet!”

 

http://www.qsphere.com.au/plasma.html

Gives specs of  the two 42s, 50 & 61.  Says New only on the 50”.

The model numbers on the 42" from this site are incorrect

The 42XM2 and VP4 are the old models

Sorry Glenncol. Thought that might be so!

Hard to find up-to-date specs online.

Mate I can tell you will need to turn down the sharpness and colour as its factory settings are set too high.

Thanks for everyones replys on viewing distance I can tell you that 2.7 m is way too close it physically made me ill watching it today. I feel like Ive been on a rollercoaster.

Angelo :blink:

What ya gunna do?

I really should have gone for the 42inch, but when I saw the 50inch I just had to have it.

Just be careful if you looking at the 42inch there is 2 models in that one .

One has higher specs

Angelo

Dude if you want ot go the 42" i really think you can change it a this early stage

Have a chat to your retailer

No screen door effect but I,m starting to think I should have gone for a 42cm as I cant change my seating postion.

After spending all day adjusting it , it made me feel kinda sick.

I think the viewing distance should be at least 3 to 4 meters.

Angelo

Do you get sick at the movies or IMAX? :blink:

How on earth do you get that cinematic feel when you have to sit 4 meters away from a 50 inch screen?

When people are claiming fantastic PQ with their plasma, I hope its not based on sitting miles away from the screen...

yes I do if I sit in the front row - often happens when we don't bother to book and get the last available seats for a blockbuster (it would seem these are the least desired seating position for most people).

By the way how can you possibly compare with a movie theatre - any clues to the image quality with this - I have heard its around 12 megapixel from film - how can you possibly even think of making comparisons with the 1-2 megapixels we are looking at when we are talking plasma.

Anyone sitting less than 3m from a 50" screen is either nuts, badly in the need for some decent glasses or wants to see all the flaws and artifacts of a SD picture on a screen this size or watch it through a screen door. Just don't think the 50" plasma resolutions are upto it just yet for sitting so close to the screen.

edit - guys you sure your not being a bit premature with jumping to the new NECs - have you compared it with the new pioneers (I really think this could be bit of a benchmark) plus theres the new HD integrated LGs due - I know (shudder, cold sweat, shiver up the spine with the LGs but hey it could be a great product). Theres also some new hitachis around the corner with some pretty awesome specs. What I'm saying is these screens are still reasonable money and why not just wait a little to make sure you pick the best screen for your hard earned.

Looks like your right.. I'll stick with my 47 inch HD CRT RPTV for the moment I think...

I'll wait for the 1080p digital displays I guess

Hey Angelo

I went out to see the NEC 50" today all i can say is bloody nice but due ot size restrictions i think i will go the 42".

the 42" is due in next week so i will call past after work one night and if its half of what i have heard and it fits in the car i will bring it home and if it dont fit i will have to wait until Satureday for delivery.

Guys all who are in the market for a 50 " Plasma DO NOT pass up the oppertunity to audition the NEC XR4 50" plasma its awesome just wish i had more room in the my living room.

Also i am not saying this for any reason other than calling an Ace a Ace and a spade a spade i viewed the NEC at e-Home in Carnegie these guys know their stuff thank god and very easy to deal with.

These guys also stock the Paradign Studio reference series speakers now if you want some high ends speakers that will blow you away have a listen (Trying not to be biased)

Another positive report here. Personally i am into projectors but my dad was looking for a plasma and on my recommendation has now owned the 50xr4w for over 2 weeks. Its a very nice product and with a quality HD feed is as good as anything out there right now.

As has been said it is very revealing of poor sources. Suprisngly Foxtel digital using the scart to component converter box looks pretty good on it also.

One issue you might all want to be aware of. Its been rumoured only the silver version is HDCP compliant on its DVI input. Since my Dad wanted silver i didnt bother looking into this further but if your considering the charcoal check into it.

I paid 8K which included insured shipping to Perth, Desktop stand AND a HD set top box. The STB was the new NEC which doesnt have DVI but given the total price i decided it would be fine for my dad.

When you factor in:

1. 3 year on site warranty

2. Excellent PQ

3. Not having to pay for items like speakers and media boxes you dont need

4. Excellent input options without having to pay for blade input cards like the commercial Panasonics and Pioneers

5. Slim bezel

It really is a great option for those looking for a 50 inch HD plasma.

To your eyes was the 50" much bigger that the 42"[yeh I know.. it's 8" bigger] some displays look to the eyes just as big as the next size up as oppose going from 32" to 42"

Angelo,

I have a couple of questions about the new 50" NEC unit:

- How hot does your new NEC plasma get? DO you think it would build up heat if enclosed in a cabinet? I live in Brisbane and it gets pretty hot up here for most of the year.

- Would you say that the fan is noisy during quiet movie passages?

- Do you have an upscaling set top box or PC which can make the NEC display at its native panel resolution (768 x 1366) at 50/75 or 100Hz?

- Do you notice any judder on the unit?

- How well does the plasma resolve details in dark scenes (eg. in comparison the the panasonic which has the best contrast ratio)?

Regards.

Dean
