8 Reasons For

Good Brand

Mid-size TVs manufactured by Panasonic have good ratings on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all televisions (not just mid-size TVs) and found that Panasonic also has good ratings across its entire range.

3D Compatible

The TX-L42ETX64 is 3D compatible. Most of the other TVs of a similar type and age to the TX-L42ETX64 are not 3D compatible.

We compared this TV to all the other 3D compatible televisions and we think the LG 42LW579, and the Samsung UE40H6470 which has better reviews is also worth considering.
