The latest TX-L42ET5B LED TV sees Panasonic improving upon the prime Smart VIERA features of their already excellent Full High Definition E5B series, courtesy of improvements in the networking repertoire, developments to its 1080P LED image processing and most notably, the adoption of an intermediate 3D system for those still seeking a high level of basic TV performance and convenience in external device connection but where interest in 3D as a feature is perhaps of less prominent concern but nevertheless, is something likely to be experimented with or used infrequently and in consequence, is something unlikely to justify a major premium (as found in a Full HD 3D TV.)

Still, this super value, step up 42 inch LED TV continues to offer free, HD TV reception via its built in Freeview HD tuner and packs a grade of black level picture punch many competitors will struggle to achieve as a result of its Clear Panel screen filtering whilst the latest Smart VIERA Engine Pro protocol introduces Vivid Colour Creation (to instil a high level of dynamic control over peaks in colour brightness, contrast, saturation and sharpness) to deliver natural, subtle colour differentials.

Major improvements to the processing formulae have arisen by firstly, the bolstering of the movies friendly 24p system with an additional Smooth Film process which effectively trebles the original frame rate (to 96p) in order to curtail movies’ tendency to blur slightly and second, a doubling of the TV screen’s rate of panel driver to 300 hertz, ensuring even greater suppression of motion smear during fast flowing camera pans.

Of course, most consumers considering the ET5B series LED HDTVs will have one eye on the 3D aspect and via Passive (polarised) 3D, users of the 42 inch TXL42ET5B will immediately be impressed by the value their choice imparts – not just lighter 3D glasses than their Active 3D counterparts but cheaper to buy and with 4 pairs included, completely free of charge, the minor performance compromise may well be irrelevant in the face of such undeniable value for money. (As you may expect, the set will, if required, convert normal (2D) material into 3D, at the touch of a button.)

VIERA Connect is here, affording the TX-L42ET5 user of all the regular applications – smart phone and tablet TV control (via the VIERA remote App,) cheap rate national and international video calls (via the Skype App,) default social media availability (via twitter and face book Apps) – but the ability to turn the TV into a substantial PC monitor (via the dedicated web browsing App,) marks the ET5 series as the next step.

The 42 inch ET5 series LED delivers all this with even lower power consumption than ever before thanks to smart eco features which on top of consuming less energy, period, combine to reduce contrast settings in darker light conditions and switch off altogether after periods of user inactivity; it sports a generous platter of sockets (including an extra, third USB driver input) but one of its main attractions has to be the integral WiFi facility, enabling immediate association with any home network and all linked devices.

There are some undeniably attractive LED TVs out there, today but in our experience, once you have sampled a Panasonic Smart VIERA set, it is unlikely you will care for too many alternatives; indeed, for the sort of modest price the market offers, the incredible TX-L42ET5B, 42 inch, Full HD LED television with Passive 3D can be further discounted by simply selecting our lowest UK price so why not treat yourself?

A bona fide bargain!
