The Panasonic VIERA TC-P42ST30 is a mid-cost full HD 3D TV. The display of this TV is forty-two inches. This TV's 3D VIERA Image Viewer allows you to view JPEG 2D digital still images, 3D digital still images, and 2D/3D HD video with clarity. The VIERA TC-P42ST30's Infinite Black 2 Panel raises the luminous efficiency while minimizing pre-discharge. This makes for subtle blacks in both dim and well-lit environments. The 600Hz Sub-field Drive helps to ensure that fast action scenes will not blur or streak by. This TV's DLNA compatibility allows you to connect it to other DLNA compatible devices, so that you can stream video from your PC or other DLNA compatible device. The VIERA TC-P42ST30 also has three HDMI connections and two USB ports. This TV is equipped with the VIERA Link feature, which allows you to put all your VIERA Link devices together and control them from the same remote. The VIERA TC-P42ST30 is equipped with WiFi (with LAN through the USB port), which allows you to access the VIERA Connect platform. This platform gives you access to sites like Netflix, Amazon VOD, You Tube, Pandora and Twitter, as well as sports-based sites. This model differs from the higher cost VIERA TC-P46ST30 model in that the VIERA TC-P46ST30 has a forty-six inch display.
