Panasonic TH-42PX80U Vs Panasonic TH-42PZ80U

by steve2150 / June 22, 2008 9:18 AM PDT

Hi, I'm in a process of buying one of these tvs. On the 42px80u, the resolution is 1024x768. Now, is that true high def? Meaning, does it have 720p. Also, if i get the 42pz80u, will i notice the higher resolution between the two? And will the 42pz80u, handle the 720p or 1080i better? I would appreciate any help on this, Thanks!

Yes, anything over 720p is considered to be hi-def.

As for pz over the px, In my mind, it would depends on 2 things; the price difference and whether I am going to be watching bru-ray discs.

its the contrast

The PZ has a better contrast ratio then the PX, this is one of the most important stats in picture quality.

I could care less about the 720 vs 1080, you will never see the diffrents no matter what you are watching, but you will see the contrast diffrents at home in lower lighting.

good luck

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
