Features:

  • IPS Alpha LED LCD Technology
    The IPS Alpha panel, which is known for its wide viewing angle and excellent light transmittance, is now further enhanced with a bright, energy-saving LED backlight. Images do not fade when viewed from an angle, and contrast is higher than in previous IPS Alpha models in spite of using less power. The IPS Alpha LED LCD TV offers superb color rendering and also contributes to the display's slim design
  • LED Backlight
    This system places LED backlights on the top and bottom of the panel, and sends the light toward the center of the screen. Using light guides and diffusers, it distributes the light over the entire panel to provide backlighting. There is no need to cover the entire rear surface with LEDs, so the panel module is thinner and a great deal of energy is saved
  • Dynamic Contrast
    By combining the highly light-transmissive IPS Alpha Panel and high-brightness LED backlight, Panasonic have attained both high contrast and low power consumption. Also, by detecting the contrasting parts of the scene, the backlight is adjusted to maintain a brightness that is optimal for each area. Deep blacks are reproduced with no fading. The contrast between the brilliance of diamond-like stars and the deep black of the night sky produces a sharp, crisp image
  • Wide Viewing Angle
    The wide 178° viewing angle ensures clear images even when viewed from an angle. The backlight's wide transmission aperture enhances the contrast between light and dark, and improves motion-image response
  • VIERA Image Viewer
    Equipped with an SD card slot, VIERA makes it easy to view full-HD photos and motion images that you shot yourself. Simply insert the SD memory card into the slot, and you're ready to view your photos and full-HD videos on the big screen. You can make your slide shows even more impressive by adding background music and attractive frames. With VIERA's big screen and superb image quality, family and friends will love sharing your memories
  • EASY IPTV
    Simply press the VIERA Tools button on the remote control to directly access a variety of Internet services. Enjoy online music and movies with ease
  • DLNA / Wi-Fi Ready
    Connect a DLNA-compatible VIERA and DLNA-compatible AV equipment to your home network, and you can watch movies, listen to music, and view photos from any room in the house. VIERA's Wi-Fi capability gives you even more layout flexibility
  • VIERA Link
    VIERA Link interlinks the operation of a variety of AV devices, so you can operate them all using only the VIERA remote control. Setup is easy simply connect the compatible devices to each other via HDMI cables
  • VIERA Tools
    The VIERA Tools user interface makes it easy to access and understand key functions. Simply press a function button, and an explanation appears on the screen. Keep the button pressed to activate the function immediately

      Comments about Panasonic 42" VIERA 1080P LED Flat Panel HDTV:

      I had been waiting to move to an LED TV and I can say without a doubt it was worth the wait. This model has a sleek design with wonderful picture. I have gotten so many compliments on it, getting the DMP-BD75(blu-ray player) too just shows what the TV was capable of. Only negative sound quality is poor so be prepared to have some help from an extra sound system.

              Comments about Panasonic 42" VIERA 1080P LED Flat Panel HDTV:

              Upgraded because of web access. But I had to purchase an adapter for $80 to view Netflix etc. Very limited web content available once connected. Audio on tv is terrible. No S- video or front connection for game or camera. If I hadn't already trashed the box I would have returned it and looked elsewhere.
