New Product: Pioneer Elite PRO-940HD 42-inch Plasma HDTV

TOUCHES OF CLASS If you suspect those cheapie plasmas at Costco must be missing something, you're right . . . and it's all found in Pioneer's PRO-940HD set. An arsenal of technologies - including a crystal emissive layer, glare-reducing filter, and improved phosphors - gives you the deepest contrast possible. And the ability to adjust six colors independently is surely a privilege of the elite - it's right there in the name.

SEEING DOUBLE The two HDMI inputs both accept 1080p signals, though screen resolution tops out at a respectable 1,024 x 768 pixels. And if you love cable but hate the box, a CableCARD slot and TV Guide's onscreen EPG can help you get back some shelf space. Price: $3,300 800-421-1404
