 Samsung's PN42C430 is part of the 2010 edition of entry-level Series 4 plasma TVs, and it has a 42" flat panel display. It displays video in a vibrant range of colors and up to 720p resolution. Its main features include a very clear front panel that greatly reduces glare coming off the surface, which enhances contrast and darker areas of the picture. This display uses 600Hz subfield motion, which reduces blurring and makes moving images or text appear more fluid. Other features include USB inputs and a light sensor that automatically adjusts screen brightness to accommodate lighting conditions in any room and potentially save energy.
