You want a massive HDTV for sports, movies, and special events, but you worry that you'll have to install your own power grid to run it. The solution? The Panasonic TC-P58S1 58" VIERA 1080p Plasma HDTV. The gorgeous, larger-than-life panel puts you right in the middle of the action, while its Neo PDP technology is claimed to use half the power of comparable plasma sets.
But there's more to the TC-P58S1 than its size and "green" technology to make it an excellent choice for high-impact viewing. The plasma set is packed with features that combine to deliver a first-rate entertainment experience.
At the heart of the TC-P58S1 is its 1080p full HD display, which delivers crisp and detailed images. The Panasonic also includes a 600 Hz sub-field drive, which means that moving images in games and movies are sharp and precise, with less judder and fewer aftereffects. The HDTV also boasts an incredible 2,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio for deeper blacks, and an advanced anti-reflective coating for dramatically reduced glare and rich, vivid colors.
To provide a wealth of viewing choices, the TC-P58S1 sports an SD card slot, dubbed the VIERA Image Viewer. Pop in a card from your digital camera and you'll be watching your photos and videos in full HD on the giant screen. The Panasonic's three HDMI jacks let you connect all of your digital devices to enjoy in uncompressed digital video and multichannel audio.
If you're a diehard gamer, the set's dedicated game mode is icing on the cake. This feature improves game controller response to help you keep up with the on-screen action.
Taking into account the Panasonic's intuitive user interface, technical advances, expandability, and other convenience features, you'll be living large with the 58" TC-P58S1 VIERA 1080p Plasma HDTV as the center of your home entertainment system.
