Quick Take: Panasonic TC-PC1 series

CNET has not reviewed the Panasonic TC-PC1 series, but we have reviewed a similar plasma TV.

Panasonic's TC-PC1 series is available in two screen sizes: the 42-inch TC-P42C1 and the 50-inch TC-P50C1.

While CNET has not reviewed the Panasonic TC-PC1 series, we have reviewed the company's slightly more expensive TC-PX1 series. The two series of 720p plasma HDTVs are very similar similar aside from a few key differences. The X1 series has a higher native contrast ratio spec (30,000:1 vs. 15,000:1) so we expect it to exhibit slightly better black levels than the C1. The X1 also has an additional HDMI input (for a total of three, while the C1 has two) and a Game mode designed to provide easy access to gaming devices connected to the TV.

Check out the full review of the Panasonic TC-P50X1 for more information.
