Product Description

Sylvania's 6842PF is a 42-inch, widescreen (16:9) gas-plasma display compatible with progressive-scan and high-definition signals up to 1080i. This unit offers incredibly vivid, high-contrast images and is the ultimate addition to any home theater. Perfect for movies and other programs formatted for 16:9 aspect-ratio screens, the monitor's HD component-video inputs accept full 720p and 1080i HDTV signals from set-top boxes and DTV receivers, which are sold separately.

One of the main benefits of a plasma screen is the vivid and brilliant color display of over 16 million colors. Additionally, the 6842PF boasts extremely wide viewing angles (compared to most LCD screens), and easy placement due to its slim profile of less than 5 inches of depth. And like all plasma displays, the 6842PF is immune to the distortion and negative color balances one may encounter when using a conventional CRT television near flourescent lighting or speaker systems.

I went into my local big box retailer with a 32" flat panel in mind (upgrading from a 27" CRT) and quickly realized that 42" is where it's at! After seeing this Sylvania in action and being incredibly impressed by the clarity and brightness, I went in search of the best price. I unexpectedly found it here at Amazon and bought. After having the TV for about two weeks now I'm very happy. Like I say the picture is great - no complaints - but I would like a more robust selection of inputs/outputs. This thing also looks great mounted - with just the thin frame oulining the screen.

Verified Purchase
First off, on a scale of 1 to 5 I give it a -5. Here's why;

To begin this unit will cost you $200.00 to ship and since it is over the 27" return policy size don't expect to be able to return it if it's defective.You will never get your $200.00 back or have the unit replaced unless of course there is a forklift hole through it or something obvious like that. Amazon "cuts and runs" and leaves the unit to you and the manufacturer who is supposed to have "in-home-service" if the unit is found to be defective after you unpack it and try to use it.

Well, you better check the Funai warranty to find out if they even have a service center in your area that can come out to your home (which you will have to do yourself because when my unit showed up on my doorstep D.O.A. I called them and they could not locate anyone in my area. I had to call the Funai service number and press "2" to find the nearest service center which, BTW, was just about 40 min away. I found it astonishing that the service folk at Funai couldn't find one...what kind of service center doesn't have a list of "ceritfied" service centers for there call center? I find it odd that a technical company doesn't have a database of these centers for the call center to use... ?!?!?!)

We bought this unit as a surprise gift for the holiday and received it on Dec 7th, I checked the unit immediately to make sure it was ok (which is why we got it early!). After finding that the unit was D.O.A., I called the mfg right away, and guess what...? I had to leave a message. Wow. Now there's some customer service. Well after a day and a half I got no return call, so I persistently kept calling the service number and finally got to talk to a human (BTW, the message got responded to 3 days later.).

I purchased this at a local store before finding it at Amazon. (I paid $100 more but no shipping cost) Very nice display. It is not as crisp as HD, but still looks great. I have Direct-tv with S-video hooked up and the bright scenes look fantastic, but dark scenes (blacks and greys) are not to good. (this is not an HD signal which would clean things up a lot) A DVD player with component hookup is much better.

I wanted a large display without paying $2000 (typical ballpark price for an HD set the same size) and am very happy with the results. I do not see a difference worth paying the extra $600 for.

This set weighs in at 100lbs so be sure you have a solid entertainment center or if you use the wall mount (an extra $150) it needs to contact something substantial. Also the speakers lack depth. They get the job done ok, but with a display like this a surround sound would be a good investment.

Remember this is a display, not a set with a tuner. Not a problem with cable, satellite, or DVD players. This has an advantage if you have young children and a universal remote control. The kids cannot accidently change the tv channel and then require help to get back on track.

I read all the reviews before I bought this TV, and they were very helpful. Thank you to all who wrote about it! This is why I am writing a review (hopefully this will help someone else make his or her decision)

I bought this TV for my husband's birthday and he loved it. The sound system in the TV is terrible but knowing this ahead of time we put surround sound on the TV and it is great. I have to say that this TV is excellent for the money. I have recommended it to my friends and other family members.

I just received this television yesterday. I was a little concerned about the sound quality as I have seen it being bashed by reviewers. However, bottom line, the t.v. sounds just fine. You may need a minute to get used to the sound coming from behind or behind/side of the t.v., but I think that has more to do with the reviews warning about the sound, then the sound quality itself. I must warn you that this is my experience with the t.v., just sitting on a stand AND NOT MOUNTED TO A WALL. I would reccomend this t.v. to anyone looking for a good deal on a plasma.

This plasma TV monitor is ideally suited for any home entertainment system. The build and picture quality are oustanding. The 10-watt internal speakers and remote control are inferior. However, it really does matter since I have all the A/V inputs connected to my 660-watt A/V Receiver and use a universal remote. The black face and silver cabinet matches both black or silver components. The TV does not have a built-in tuner, but I use a cable box to change channels.
