Features

Saving energy never looked better. VIERA® D24 Series LED HDTVs offer an IPS - LED LCD panel, which include new technology that achieves the highest levels of brightness and energy-saving efficiency ever in a VIERA® LCD HDTV.

IPS LED LCD Technology

The IPS panel, which is known for its wide viewing angle and excellent light transmittance, is now further enhanced with a bright, energy-saving LED backlight. Images do not fade when viewed from an angle, and contrast is higher than in previous IPS models in spite of using less power. The IPS LED LCD TV offers superb color rendering and also contributes to the display's slim design.


LED Backlight

This system places LED backlights on the top and bottom of the panel, and sends the light toward the center of the screen. Using light guides and diffusers, it distributes the light over the entire panel to provide backlighting. There is no need to cover the entire rear surface with LEDs, so the panel module is thinner and a great deal of energy is saved.



Dynamic Contrast 2,000,000:1 with IPS LED LCD Technology
Brilliant Luminance and Superb Blacks

Both high contrast and energy-saving efficiency have been achieved in the IPS LED LCD TV by combining the IPS panel, which is known for its wide viewing angle, with a bright, energy-efficient LED backlight. Even dark scenes like night skies are naturally rendered with delicate shades of black. The Intelligent Scene Controller further boosts the image quality.

*Only the D Series



24p Smooth Film
Smooth Film Images

Enjoy naturally flowing 24p films and familiar TV-like quality. This mode optimizes the number of frames of 24p images recorded from film media such as a Blu-ray Disc ™. Advanced source analysis and frame generation produce smooth images that are faithful to the original.



Wide Viewing Angle
Beautiful Images from Any Angle

The wide 178°* viewing angle ensures clear images even when viewed from an angle. The backlight's wide transmission aperture enhances the contrast between light and dark, and improves motion-image response.
*Measured at an angle where the contrast ratio is 10:1 or higher.


VIERA Image Viewer
Easy viewing of full-HD photos

It's easy to view full-HD images with the SD card slot. Watch and show your photos right after you take them. Simply insert an SD Memory Card into your VIERA HDTV to display photos a on the large screen. It's much more fun when you can view them on a large screen HDTV with family and friends in 1920x1080-pixel high definition and a wide 16:9 aspect ratio.

VIERA Link
Operation with a single remote

*VIERA Link is a new name for EZ Sync. Not all VIERA Link features are usable with other VIERA Link and EZ Sync compatible products.

Reviews

TC-42LD24 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Picture Quality This is a GREAT TV. When we turned it on it, we thought it was 3D. The picture is the best we have ever seen. The HD is so good it is almost like we can step into the picture with the actors. Breathtaking scenery. Wanted to watch it all night. As a new product, this did not have a lot of reviews to go by, but we LOVE it. No need to pay more, you will not find a better TV at any price. Run, don't walk to get one!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing We have one 4 year old HD TV so we have been familiar with HD. We were shocked to see the difference in this TV. This unit was recommended to us by the staff at Costco as their favorite TV at any price or size. It was so real that the Cracken monster in Clash of the Titans scared my normally aggressive dog. It literally looked like it was alive and coming out of the picture. Only one complaint. It is so real and alive looking I feel like a voyeur looking into the window at someones house. So is this a complaint or high praise? I guess that depends on how real you want your entertainment to be. The adult kids liked it so much that one went out and bought it the next day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Panasonic or Viera? Before I review , Panasonic your confusing? If your changing names let us know. Costco has a 2 year warren-tee. Is that with you or Costco? This is a great TV so far. We had a plasma that I thought was great but this TV is superior in picture all around quality. Very easy connections and the TV basically set itself up and read the channels immediately. TV is also light and clean looking. Well done Panasonic . Now if you could get your public relations in order you might have something going on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OH Yeah!! I took a chance on this TV mainly because there were no current reviews about this product. I was nervous but I put my bid in anyway. I bought this TV from a local company on Ebay. I am so esctatic. This tv looks great. I wish that it was housed in a piano black case but I will survive. The audio is great and the controls are too simple. What I would like to complain about are the locations of the HDMI ports. I donot have a 90 degree HDMI cable. I wonder if this is going to hinder me from mounting this thing to the wall. If they have 90 degree cables I KNOW that they are going to cost me an arm and a leg. Otherwise I am fine.
