Summary: Great TV, however even though I have connected a hard drive and I can watch some movies off it. It doesnt seem to play all videos, even though all of them are MKV files. Also I cant seem to get it to record onto my hard drive.
Pros: Great picture quality, slim and light.
Cons: The menu is awful, and it doesnt seem to play all MKV files.
Summary: I tried the Netgear Range Max Dual Band Wireless-n USB Adapter WNDA3100v2 which other Panasonic TV owners had used, but not with this model. It did not work. Looking on Netgear's web-site it shows that they do not have an adapter for the TX-L42E30B 42" LED TV. Does anybody know of an adapter which will work?
Pros: It is the best TV which I have owned
Cons: Pananasonic charge too much for their adapter
Summary: Plus points are punchy vibrant picture once set up correctly, fantastic HD picture and great SD one, Black levels to subjectively match Plasma, great motion handling except on the fastest of sports but the intelligent frame creation pro on medium setting cures this. Can't criticise tv too much for this though as ALL led tv's have this problem. Slimline tv with low power use and internet tv is excellent,no back light bleed.
Summary: I purchased this TV even after reading the numerous reviews stating the issues with lighting and sound volume increasing. It appears that the latest firmware (1.218 at time of writing) cleared up these issues (or perhaps I am just lucky). Picture quality is excellent for HD material but not the best for SD material. Unfortunately I have Freesat HD rather than Freeview HD so I couldn't see the quality of freeview.
Summary: Was initially put off by poor reviews on Amazon. I used to repair tvs and notice problems easily. Most LCD tvs look terrible (poor colour contrast and bad SD upscaling). Having seen in showroom and now bought I am delighted. Even my wife loves it now after initial (too big for our lounge) comments. Great picture and sound, and copes very well with Standard Definition upscaling. Great for BBC iPlayer and YouTube too. Minor niggle - no numbers against the settings (e.g.
Summary: This TV has a simple set of controls and a very good picture. As you would expect from a Panasonic TV - the picture works and the manual was detailed and helpful. The remote control is both responsive and "simple" in both size and operation. Having had the TV now for a few months - have found that the initial issue of the EPG not showing enough can be resolved by once in the EPG function using the Channel Up and Down option - moves a whole page at a time.
Conclusion: Bonjour, J'ai fait l'acquisition de cette télé et je dois dire qu'il n'y a aucun gros point négatif à signaler, sans pour autant considérer qu'elle est exceptionnelle : l'image peut être déformée par moment, la fluidité laisse parfois à désirer (c'est peut être aussi du à des problèmes de signal de mon côté, je dis pas), le fait d'être connecté à internet est plus un gadget qu'autre chose, le disque dur externe qui sert pour l'enregistrement doit être entièrement...
Excerpt: Dit is een top TV, werkt super, het beeld is glashelder, afstandbediening is makkelijk te bedienen. Zeer tevreden, wat deze tv ook doet, is als je de tv uitzet dan is deze ook uit, bij heel veel tv's blijft deze op standby staan. Zeer goede prijs kwaliteid verhouding Veel marktonderzoek gedaan maar bij Plasma discount is deze tv de goedkoopste en op voorraad.
