Panasonic TC-L42ET5

 

The Panasonic ET5 series offers integrated Wi-Fi and passive 3D with included glasses in an affordable LED HDTV, but its picture isn't quite up to snuff unless you look at the screen straight on.

Inexpensive. Built-in Wi-Fi. Bright picture. Comes with 4 pairs of 3D glasses

Weak off-angle viewing including heavy crosstalk. Disappointing shadow detail

Panasonic TC-L42ET5 Smart Viera 3D LED/LCD TV - Review

 

The Panasonic TC-L42ET5 was in my setup for over a month and I found it to be very easy to setup and use (especially the remote control), and enjoyed watching a wide variety of both 2D and 3D content on the set. Panasonic TC-L42ET5 provides a very good...

Panasonic TC-L42ET5

 

At $1,099 for the 42-inch Panasonic TC-L42ET5, it's an affordable HDTV. But its picture quality doesn't measure up to Vizio's or LG's passive 3D screens, and doesn't come close to matching active 3D HDTVs. Still, the set's price and feature set helps...

Panasonic TC-L42ET5 Review – 42-inch LED LCD HDTV

 

It is one of the HD TV models launched by Panasonic with passive 3D technology support. The low price-tag and smaller size of the model also make the model usable in a flexible manner. But the model still offers the video quality and resolution offered...

The model also allows users to access internet by using the wireless networking options. Further, it comes with a web browser compatible with Flash and HTML 5. A user can use the web browser to browse through his favorite websites on a 42-inche screen....

Panasonic TX-L47ET5 review

 

The Panasonic TX-L47ET5 3D smart TV takes a sensible shoes approach

Smart VIERA online portal ; Punchy image quality ; Wi-Fi and SD card slot

Black levels could be better ; Motion resolution is limited ; Not as slim as some rivals

Panasonic TX-L42ET5 review

 

The Panasonic LX-L42ET5 is part of the brand's new ET5 range of ‘affordable' 3D LED TVs which uses Passive rather than Active Shutter 3D tech

Content rich VIERA Connect ; Good media playback via USB ; Clean 3D performance

Limited motion resolution ; Black levels could be better ; File support falters on LAN

While this ET5 may not offer of this world performance, as a mainstream internet-enabled proposition is does a commendable job. Image quality is decent, caveats about motion clarity and black levels not withstanding, and its Passive 3D implementation...

Panasonic Viera TX-L42ET5B

 

The first TV from Panasonic's 2012 range is here. And it's neither a plasma model nor even all Panasonic's own work. Go figure.

Nice looks, Convenient, affordable and relatively untiring 3D, Some good online features

3D images can look ‘stripey’, Standard def images could be better, Input lag could trouble gamers

Panasonic Viera TC-L42ET5 42" 3D LED HDTV 1080p 60Hz

 

Its a new TV with a one year manufacturer warranty. If you want longer, you can purchase a SquareTrade warranty. It is a decent entry level 3DTV. The refresh rate is only 120 rather than 240, but for the price it is not bad at all. It isn't the best...
