NEC's 42-inch PX-42XM4J business plasma

Japan's NEC Corp. is offering a new 42-inch plasma display designed for corporate deployment whose 3,000:1 contrast ratio and 1,400-candela/square-meter brightness should make it a hit in keiretsu boardrooms nationwide. Which is a good thing, because at almost $4,500, the PX-42XM4J -- with its 1,024 x 768 resolution -- probably wouldn't attract today's consumer looking for that all important 1,080p designation. Interested Japanese IT directors can start filling out their requisition forms in triplicate right away, as NEC's new PDP is available immediately.
