Product Details

Panasonic 42" VIERA U30 Series Black LCD Flat Panel HDTV, Model TCL42U30

Features:

  • 120Hz Motion Picture Pro 4
    Even fast-moving scenes are displayed sharply and clearly. With a 60Hz video signal input, 120Hz Motion Picture Pro 4 makes 120 frames/second from 60 frames/second. This increases the frame count to allow natural frame-to-frame transitions, for smooth motion images with high resolution. Motion Focus Technology also reduces flicker and effectively suppresses blurring and afterimages
  • 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
  • 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
  • Dynamic Contrast
    By combining the highly light-transmissive IPS 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
    With VIERA's wide 178° viewing angle, you see clear, vibrant images from every seat in the room. The backlight features a wide transmission aperture that enhances contrast between light and dark and improves response to provide smoother motion images

        The color is great. The resolution reminds me of watching a movie in a theater. Would recommend this TV for any uses a buyer has in mind. I would not hesitate to buy this one again.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Delivery was later in the day than I expected, but waiting was well worth seeing the picture that this TV has.
