  • A. It has RCA imprinted on the plastic casing just below the screen. Sometimes manufacturers make special models for large retailers like Walmart. Sometimes these units are missing some features and that way the retailer can offer a cheaper price. I don't what this unit is missing but It has to be minor and is a great buy for $399 delivered.

  • A. I am using this Plasma T.V. without full H.D. programing on most stations that broadcast in 480i and the picture is still fantastic. However if a station is broadcasting in 1080i or 1080p it meet's them at that level.

  • A. i think the picture is still good without HD programming. although, my brother in law said i should get hd receivers for my directv, because having an hd capable tv without hd programming is like having a mustang and only driving it 25mph, lol

I didn't buy this TV. My friend did. He was very excited about getting it as well. I saw the review of many people who got them with cracked screens. So I joked all week with him that his screen would probably be smashed. I honestly didn't think that it would be though. Well surprise surprise. His TV came yesterday and take a look at it right after opening the box. I couldn't believe what I saw. Not just a couple of little cracks. But really smashed. It looks like a truck drove over it. Whoever is manufacturing this TV has a problem on it's hands. The box was in perfect shape. Doesn't appear to be damaged from the shipping company. There are far to many horror stories about this TV for that to be the case anyway. This thing looks damaged straight from the factory! BEWARE. STAY AWAY. Get something else. Unless you want this to happen to you.

A year ago I would never have considered a plasma TV. But it seems improvements have been made and they are again competitive in picture quality, features and value. This RCA 42" plasma was a bargain for $399 and I needed a TV for my basement den. I have the sound plugged into my Sony receiver so, any drawbacks with the RCA speakers do not apply, although the sound fine to me. This is one tremendous value for a 42" HDTV, even though the price has now changed to $419, it's still a bargain.

The TV I bought is better than I expected. The color and sound are great and it looks good on the TV stand I got a couple months back.
