The PFM-42X1 is a recent addition to Sony’s PlasmaPro series of plasma displays. It takes over from Sony’s the PFM-42B2. Like this set, it is also smooth and sophisticated.
But, how is it different? Why is it replacing the Alis displays? It offers an improved contrast ratio for one. Ande a 60,000-hour panel half life, more than double its predecessors. But, importantly, it is also bang up for a bit of connectivity – it has a DVI input!
Pictures this plasma delivers are luxurious and explode with colour. Blacks are better than alright, but not one of this displays best features.
The 42X1 loves working with a higher resolution computer signal like XGA. Because the XGA signal is 1024 x 768, it is pretty close to the 42X1’s own resolution and therefore required the least amount of manipulation. Sony has designed this unit to accept graphics signals all the way up to UXGA (1600 x 1200), but we preferred text and graphics as they appeared via an XGA signal.
