The Panasonic VIERA TC-P42U2 is one of two VIERA Plasma HDTVs announced in 2010 as part of the VIERA U2 series. The 42” TC-P42U2 features 1080p full high-definition resolution with Panasonic’s 600Hz Sub-Field Drive and an anti-reflective filter for utilizing the television in ultra-bright rooms. Like its peers, the TC-P42U2 improves on past models with their new NEO PDP, which offers greater luminosity coupled with deeper hues. In fact, it offers up to 100,000 hours of brightness, after which time it’ll only achieve half brightness. Additional features include three HDMI connections, 2 USB ports, a PC input, and VIERA Link for using a single remote for accessing any connected VIERA Link products.

This information is incorrect. The U2 has no USB port (much less two), nor does it have neo-pdp. You appear to have confused this model with Panasonic's somewhat better S series.
