Features

Saving energy never looked any better. The Viera D Series LED HDTVS offer an IPS Alpha LED LCD panel that helps save energy. IPS Alpha panels offer high light transmission efficiency due to their high opening pixel ratio. When combined with an LED backlight, you can be assured you are watching an energy efficient TV with low power consumption.

120Hz Motion Picture Pro 4

Crisp, Clear Moving Pictures

Even fast-moving scenes are displayed sharply and clearly. With a 60Hz video signal input, 120Hz Motion Picture Pro 4 makes 120 frames/second from 60 frames/second. This increases the frame count to allow natural frame-to-frame transitions, for smooth motion images with high resolution. Motion Focus Technology also reduces flicker to help suppress blurring and afterimages.

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 the image when viewing off axis.
*Measured at an angle where the contrast ratio is 10:1 or higher.

TC-L42D30 is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 100/100 led tv picture quality superb,EXPECTATION must be overcome but its to expensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great deal at great price I had been waiting to move to an LED TV and I can say without a doubt it was worth the wait. This model has a sleek design with wonderful picture. I have gotten so many compliments on it, getting the DMP-BD75(blu-ray player) too just shows what the TV was capable of. Only negative sound quality is poor so be prepared to have some help from an extra sound system.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Upgraded because of web access. But I had to purchase an adapter for $80 to view Netflix etc. Very limited web content available once connected. Audio on tv is terrible. No S- video or front connection for game or camera. If I hadn't already trashed the box I would have returned it and looked elsewhere.
