Vizio 42-inch plasma

Vizio's newest plasma set is the VP42HDTV, which is notable mainly for coming in under the psychologically important $1,000 barrier. It does however have a reasonable level of performance, including a 10,000:1 contrast ratio, 480 cd/m2 brightness, and an estimated lifetime of 60,000 hours. An ATSC/QAM/NTSC tuner is built-in, and it features two HDMI and two component ports, plus one for computer RGB. Maximum resolution extends to 720p/1080i. The set should be on sale today, and is available either from the Vizio website or Costco retail outlets.
