Panasonic Has Good Reviews for Its TVs

Panasonic has good average ratings for its mid-size TVs as well as across its entire TV range compared to other brands.

Very Fast Refresh Rate

Mid-size TVs that were launched around the same time as the TX-L42WT50 have refresh rates of between 50Hz and 1,600Hz. When compared to other comparable spec TVs that were released more than two years ago, the TX-L42WT50's refresh rate of 1,600 hertz is one of the fastest.
