Panasonic Viera TX-L42D25B


Panasonic makes its greater-than-37in LCD TV debut with this set, and with a fair degree of success too.

Panasonic TX-L42D25 review


We think this Panasonic LCD is a more then decent 40 inch screen, but for the money there's better out there

Punchy, very detailed pictures ; decent sound ; Freesat and Freeview HD ; great build

Blacks aren’t as deep as some ; colour balance isn’t perfectly neutral

This is a fine LCD from the plasma king, but read further, and you will see that you can buy even better

Panasonic TX-L42D25B review


Panasonic is currently the king of plasma TV. So much so, that its LCD screens often get overlooked. Now, though, it's joined the LED market, with a range of TVs from 19-42in. This set, the TX-L42D25B, is the biggest in its arsenal. Is it good enough...

Excellent pictures, including SD; well-featured; excellent wide-angle viewing

Disappointing sound; local (not networked) MP3 playback

the picture in HD freesat / freeview is amazing absolutely the best picture ever. Even the programs not in HD have a fantastic image quality

selecting the favourites channels via the remote control (not a problem if you have sky or Virgin) is a bit long winded.

Panasonic Viera TX-L42D25B


Slim and good to look at. Reasonably priced. Easy to set up.

Picture quality on fast moving images not has good as I had expected even in HD but more noticeable on non HD content. For best viewing experience you often need to enter the menu and make adjustments to picture setup. Over 8 weeks needed to obtain the...

Panasonic Viera TX-L42D25B


Excellent picture; the only issue is that when objects move fast sometimes there is a strange effect of pixels (not sure if these are called artifacts...). Very good in HD, sometimes you almost feel there's an element of 3D in it!

Sound is of course not great, but perfectly usable.

I am now getting a smaller screen for another room, very very pleased, friends who have a similer TVs size say this is a better picture.

The sound is o/k but I think could be higher quality
