Stylish design. Excellent viewing angles. Solid feature set. Good HD image quality

Weak black levels. Backlight seepage. Color saturation needs tweaking. Wi-Fi costs extra

The Panasonic TC-L42D30 offers a generous feature set and good overall image quality, but it has some trouble displaying deep blacks and produces a fair amount of backlight bleeding.

Panasonic TC-L42D30 Review – 42-inch LED LCD HDTV

 

Surprisingly, Panasonic has made this model a sole entry in the D30 series. The next important thing is that this set does not have the 3D technology in it. Although the manufacturer has made sure that there are plenty of features to keep you busy, yet...

Panasonic is also well known for its Viera Image Viewer feature which has been included in this model too. You can view movies recorded on a SD card and also watch JPEG still pictures in it. DLNA connectivity has been provided along with Viera Link....

In the end, while the Panasonic TC-L42D30 has the smallest screen of all the LED TVs on our lineup, it still ranks above some TVs with larger screens because of its superior display specifications, including its contrast ratio and 120Hz refresh rate.

The Panasonic TC-L42D30 has an abnormally high contrast ratio for its size

Panasonic doesn't offer a warranty, and the screen is only 42 inches wide

If you don't mind a smaller screen, this Panasonic LED TV delivers a beautiful picture.
