The Panasonic VIERA TC-L42U22 is a budget-friendly HDTV set designed for full-HD, 1080p video playback. It comes with an abundance of inputs for connecting to video/audio devices like Blu-ray disc players, DVD players, or a PC/Mac computer. Unfortunately, it is lacking both 120Hz technology and 24p playback, which means it cannot reproduce a BD disc in its truest form. Regardless, it does host an SD card that, in conjunction with VIERA Image Viewer technology, lets users enjoy their full-HD photos directly on the big screen. Included also is VIERA LINK functionality, which allows a user to control all his/her A/V components via a single remote; integrated 20W speakers; and an optional wall-mount kit (TY-WK3L2RW).
