5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, a massive improvement on my LCD TV, 1 Dec. 2012
This review is from: Panasonic TX-L42ET5B 42-inch Widescreen Full HD 1080p 3D LED TV with Freeview HD - Black (New for 2012) (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
Really impressed by the picture quality straight from the box, especially compared to my old Samsung 40" LE40 LCD TV bought 5 years ago. There is a massive improvement in contrast, colour range, and detail, no doubt attributed to the IPS panel.
High definition video looks amazing, there's really good clarity and detail even in dark scenes. The black level is good, even in a dark living room, the black is very dark and there is no light bleeding at the edge of the panel, impressive.
I was also quite impressed on how natural and realistic the picture is, it really is convincing. The motion processing makes video more life-like, fluid and real by making extra frames to smooth the movement. However, this can be disconcerting, especially when old films look more like modern digital video. It can be a strange effect, but probably more realistic motion and I guess this would be good for sports. You can adjust the motion processing as you like it.
3D works effectively, glasses are pretty comfortable, and even from a few meters away, the effect is convincing.
The TV is packed with extra features such as internet, wi-fi, SD card slot, 2D to 3D conversion, video recording etc, I will probably never use any of these since I have a dedicated PC connected through HDMI, but it could be useful all the same.
Above all I would recommend this TV, I could have bought a cheaper and slightly larger Toshiba or Samsung for the same money, but I am happier with the picture quality of this set.
