Panasonic 2007 Line Up Of Plasmas

Recommended Posts

Panasonic has launched its release of the 2007 range of the 10th Generation Plasmas.

It appears that the plasmas 42inch and above will be true HD.

They also have increased specs in some other areas.

What I find most appealing about them is the sleek black design. This time it appears the base model (PX70) is more appealing than its superior model (PX700). In the report it mentions how the silver detracts from the px700.

This is the link

http://www.trustedreviews.com/tvs/review/2...ebruary-2007/p2

Its a 4 page report but ive jumped straight to page 2 which displays the screens.

To remain competitive I wonder what the cost of these units will be as I imagine True HD will be a substantial increase.

"The step-up models will also feature three HDMI slots – two at the back and one at the rear."

I like this feature.

"The ‘step-up TH-50PX700B and the TH-42PX700B both have SD card slots, which can play back H.264 HD movies recorded onto SD card"

Who are they kidding with the crystalware images!!!!!! :blink: The lcd panel clearly has its brightness setting adjusted to full. And yes you can see the reflections of people standing in front of the plasma. Sad when Panasonic have to resort to this garbage to show off your new panels... :D

From the link:

"Finally, there was a sneak peak at what’s coming for plasma – a model offering 10 lumens/Watt brightness, compared to the 2 lumens/watt that current screens offer. A prototype of these was on display and there was no denying its impact. In fact, it kind of spoilt the effect when going back to the current line up."

Looks like the 'SED Killers' are still a ways off then.......

I can't wait for the 1920x1080p TH-50PZ700 for Australia in August this year along with the others. This will be my most likely next screen purchase.

They're going to start off higher than the current gen PX models though aren't they? I'd assume Pana's first 1080p 42" and 50" models would start at a premium for the first year and then maybe settle down 6-12 months in

That is truly atrocious.

Shame on Panasonic for resorting to that sort of crap, and shame on the site for believing it.

Beautiful TV's, beautiful numbers......they'll be pricey at first, but will drop quickly as the 1080 LCD's kick in.

I was thinking it would be jonks before the 50's came with 1080p.

LOL, at the comparison photo.....but it's not the first time I've heard complaints about the wankers calling themselves "trusted reviews".

I think boycotting that POS website might be in order.

Panasonic are rumoured to be going to price the intergrated versions of their 50" and 42" sets very agressively at much less then competing LCD's in the 40" and 46" sizes.

Right now that suggests a price of quite a bit less then $5000 for the 50" version.

The article is a bit unclear as to what is what.

My understanding of the new models is that the 42in TH-42PX70B and the 50in TH-50PX70B will be direct replacements for the TH-42PV60A and TH-50PV60A i.e. HD panel with no inbuilt HD tuner. The step-up TH-50PX700B and the TH-42PX700B wil be direct replacements for the TH-42PX600A and the TH-50PX600A i.e. HD panel with integrated HD tuner. And the TH-50PZ700B is the brand new full HD panel.

The article briefly mentions a full HD 42 inch panel but no model number is given (I assume it will be the Th-42PZ700B).

Anyone know where to get some details about these upcoming models????

So Lynn,

Does that mean the TH-50PZ700B is the only 1080p panel out of all those?

I'm surprised they would still bother with these non-integrated versions. How much would it cost them to throw in a tuner? $20? $50? :blink:

I am very surprised as well. The problems people have with connection and compatibility issues when they use separate HD STB's is well known and I doubt anyone would even consider purchasing a new plasma that didn't have a digital tuner built -in.

There is a regulatory requirement in the US that all residential plasma's need to have a tuner built in - that is why we get these so called "commercial versions" here.

The 2007 range of Panasonic Plasmas are due for release in April in the UK atleast.

Spec wise they seem the same as the 2006 (G9) range, however after all the criticisim Pana panels received for their aesthetic appeal. Theyve gone back to black and it looks great.

Heres a link for consumers in the UK with pricing. So I wonder what the pricing will translate to here. If its just the simple currency conversion, perhaps all will be good.

The following products are registered with http://dvb.org so don't think they are too far off:-

TH-42PX7A

TH-42PX70A

TH-50PX70A

TH-50PX700A

These (full HD) will probably take a bit longer:-

TH-42PZ700A

TH-50PZ700A

TH-58PZ700A

TH-65PZ700A

The TH-42PX70B is already selling in the UK.

Yeah, it really needs some sort of movie mode where it accepts 1080/24p and displays as 48Hz or 72Hz. Since it lacks this feature I don't think I'll bother waiting.
