If you're looking for a TV for your den, bedroom or home the Panasonic TC-L42U5 42" VIERA LCD HDTV may be exactly what you're looking for. Its 42" diagonally measured screen straddles the line between mid-size and large sets. If you'll be viewing it from about five to ten feet away you'll find you're close enough to enjoy a good-sized picture but far enough away that you can enjoy the image without noticing the individual pixels that create it.
With its HD (1080p) resolution and 60Hz backlight scanning, the TC-L42U5 provides scenes with super fast movement that can be viewed with smooth images and no flicker. Its intelligent scene controller uses scene adaptive backlight control and scene adaptive contrast / gamma correction to optimize brightness and contrast levels rich for detailed blacks and crisp, creamy whites.
Games are much more fun when there's no lag in operation. VIERA automatically chooses settings that provide the optimal image, so you get super-fast response and no delays. Even dark scenes with delicately rendered details are beautiful and easy to see.
The full-HD VIERA features a full-HD LCD panel with 1920 x 1080 pixels. Panasonic's image stabilization and high-speed drive technology make it possible to reproduce HDTV broadcasts in their full, original resolution and produce fine image detail from other high-resolution sources
