p>Features & Specifications
The NEC PlasmaSync 60XC10 has a native screen resolution of 1366 x 768 with a 16:9 aspect ratio. The viewing angles are over 160 degrees and the contrast ratio is 10000:1. Brightness is 1200 cd/m2 with the ability to display 1 billion colors.

NEC integrates a motion compensated 3D scan convertor into the set providing the ability to display 480i, 576i, 525i, 625i, 1035i, and 1080i. Other supported formats include 576p, 480p, 720p, and 1080p along with a maximum Pc resolution of 1920 x 1200. Inputs are slim by home theater standards with only one single HDMI input, two composite inputs, S-video, two SCART inputs, DVI-D and a trio of audio inputs. The NEC PlasmaSync 60XC10 has no built-in speakers so you have to connect it through your home theater system to external speakers.

Image Quality & Use
The NEC PlasmaSync 60XC10 is a very large TV and is heavy as well. A table top stand is optional and was included on my test unit. Setting the TV up was easy though it was a bit too large for my TV stand. This TV is probably more at home in an office or educational setting where it would commonly be connected to a computer and used for multimedia presentations.

The Tv is capable of being used for HDTV and can play Blu-ray or HD DVD movies thanks to HDCP capability. However, the lack of multiple HD inputs limits the usability yin a home theater setting without resorting to HDMI switches. The lack of internal speakers could be an issue for some users, however most home theater owners buying a 60-inch plasma will likely already have a speaker system in place.

Visually the NEC PlasmaSync 60XC10 is very attractive with silver aluminum trim and black accents. Image quality was very good. I watched a Blu-ray film on the NEC PlasmaSync 60XC10 and found the colors to be accurate, bright and vivid. Skin tones were reproduced well and looked very natural. Non HD content was reproduced well and the TV had no noticeable motion blur or ghosting during fast action on screen. If you leave an image on the screen for an extended period of time that is still the NEC PlasmaSync 60XC10 has a screensaver mode that uses three modes.




  • Good image quality
  • Very bright


  • Lacks inputs expected on most large HDTV sets

The NEC PlasmaSync 60XC10 has a very good picture, but the lack of inputs for components severely limits its ability to be used in the home theater setting. Business looking for a nice, large display to be used for presentations will like the quality of the NEC PlasmaSync 60XC10.
