Panasonic TC-L42E30


Inexpensive. Lots of Web apps. Energy efficient

Colors run slightly cool. Middling black levels compared with the competition

If you want an HDTV but don't want to drop a lot of cash, the 42-inch LED-backlit Panasonic TC-L42E30 offers plenty of features and decent performance for its affordable price.

Panasonic TC-L42E30


The Panasonic TC-L42E30 is a nice TV with some internet apps. You won't have a full web browser, but you do have access to Viera Connect Market, which is Panasonic's app store. The TV remote's primary function is to control the TV, so it lacks...

The Panasonic TC-L42E30 has six internet apps and access to Panasonic's app store

The TV remote is primarily for TV use, not internet activities. The number pad is the alphabet keyboard as well

This internet TV will give you internet apps and TV access, but other internet TVs provide better peripheral integration.
