This has the Emerson brand name but is actually a Samsung model - shine a flashlight inside the back left speaker grille to see this. Except for the lack of inputs (switchboxes can take care of this issue), the TV has given me no trouble and has a great picture. I suppose if you have HD cable or Blu-Ray, and can really tell the difference between 720p and 1080p, you might be disappointed, but otherwise it has turned out to be a steal.

I purchased the Emerson 42" plasma TV about 10 days ago to use for TV viewing only. I have no complaints to report. I have been using Emerson products trouble free for over 35 years.

I don't know where you heard it is no good from but this TV has an excellent picture for the price. It looks fantastic when watching HD content such as Blu-ray and HD DVD. The biggest drawback is the lack of inputs.

To correct gameguru22, the xbox 360 can operate at resolutions of 1080p. I bought the 32" Vizio with the 1080p and it automatically adjusts to 1080p and looks amazing! I have also hooked it up to the Vizio with 720p and you can REALLY tell the difference.

This TV actually comes with a "Game Mode" Feature. It will adjust the picture quality to meat the demands of console gaming.

The only difference between 720p and 1080p is the resolution. Console games such as xbox and ps3, only run at a single resolution of 1024x768, aka 720p. Currently only the ps3 can upscale to 1080 resolutions, and not for games, but for blue ray/dvd movies.

This TV is excellent for gaming. There is no reason to justify a 1080p TV for gaming when no console can game at 1080 resolutions.

Yes, it has a shiny black finish. The bezel is rounded enough so that it does't pose annoying reflections of your light is spaced wider (mine are lamps on either sides of a queen bed on the other side of the room) or higher than the TV, it would be worse if it was a flat bezel or your light was spaced closer together.

Can we get more detailed Speciications & a Model Number?

The specifications provided are on the light side. i.e. actual number of ports HDMI, Composite, w/ Photo, etc. Typically when you go to the manufactures website w/ model # you get much more details. Thanks in advance.

It has two HDMIs. The composite/component is a shared set of inputs. It has an optical output for sound.

Stuff like response time and contrast ratio are debateable. It has a Samsung panel, I'd guess the 30,000:1 is with dynamic contrast off, but who knows how those figures are really achieved. It technically isn't 60hz either as plasmas are usually spec for 600hz (which isn't entirely true either but just to show they're faster responding than the fasted LCDs).

This set is not on Emerson's website, it is very similar to the Samsung PN42B400.

While it is wall mountable, you would have to buy a bracket seperately.

If by parts you mean the actual mounting kit, then no.

Most tvs do not come with mounting kits. You will need to purchase a mounting kit regardless of the TV you purchase.
