Cons

picture is rather dark, can be brightened if you can find the correct filters to turn off in the menus

3 agree

Viera link acts unpredictably, can reset equipment spontaneously

1 agrees

all video inputs share the same audio input, so input switching becomes irrelevant

1 agrees

VGA input often looks distorted and jittery, needs to be tweaked to get it right

1 agrees

3 hour inactivity timer forces you to use some command on the menu every 3 hours or it shuts off

The Panasonic VIERA TC-L42U25 is a budget-friendly, 42” LCD HDTV released as an affordable competitor to the backlit-LED, 42” D2 and D24 Series models. Like its peers, it offers a full 1080p resolution, but it’s limited to a much lower 20,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, which along with the lack of backlighting means less luminescence and weaker hues. On the bright side, the VIERA TC-L42U25 offers the same range of connectivity / functionality as its peers, including video transmission via HDMI, PC Component, Composite; image slideshows from an SD card; and full at-home theater control via VIERA LINK remote control technology. Plus the HDTV set boasts 120Hz technology, which takes standard 60Hz signals and converts it to 120 frames/second, thereby allowing for smoother motion images at high resolution.
