With one of the smartest interfaces, passive 3D and, not least, a superb picture, the Panasonic TX42AS740B gives you more.

Passive 3D TV and 2D to 3D conversion

The Panasonic TX42AS740B comes with passive 3D TV. Although the resolution isn't as good as Active 3D, the glasses are simpler and don't need batteries, so are cheaper, lighter, more comfortable and less prone to flicker. This means that Panasonic supply two, rather than the more usual zero pairs! The 2D to 3D conversion system lets you watch any program in 3D too.

1200Hz BLS processing
Whether it's 2D or 3D you're watching, you'll not fail to be impressed by the quality of the Panasonic TX-42AS740B screen. Panasonic LED backlit screens have quickly gained an excellent reputation for their true to life performance and the TX42AS740B is no exception. In addition 1200Hz BLS (Back Light Scanning) system delivers smooth motion, especially noticeable with fast moving sports events where the action stays focused throughout.

Freetime built-in
The Panasonic TX47AS650B has Freetime built-in, which lets you scroll back through TV listings and watch programmes from catch-up services, such as BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, 4oD and Demand 5 without having to open specific applications (you'll need a broadband internet connection).Both Freeview HD and satellite Freesat HD tuners are included for complete flexibility.

Easy operation with My Stream, touchpad and Voice Guidance
Although extremely well-equipped, controlling the TX42AS740B is easier than ever. My Stream remembers the type of programmes you enjoy and then makes personalised recommendations. The touchpad remote makes navigating through apps and web pages as simple as using a smartphone or tablet, while, simply saying a keyword into the controller, brings up search results. The results are both shown on screen and voiced by the TV itself.

Built-in camera, Swipe and Share, My Home Screen
This high-end Panasonic TV also has a built-in camera, so you can Skype with friends and family. Also standard is Swipe, which lets you use the Panasonic VIERA 2 app for smartphone or tablet wireless media sharing. My Home Screen allows different users to personalise the home screen.

Networking and Smart features
When it comes to connecting up, the TX42AS740B is every bit as good as you'd expect from Panasonic. In addition to the massive range of apps and a web browser, this set offers TV Anywhere, which lets you view TV content from a cloud server on your personal device. Remote Sharing lets you use your Apple or Android smartphone to send video memos or text messages to the TV's my Home Screen.

Spacious sound
For a slim TV, the Panasonic TX42AS740B has good sound quality. The built-in 20W amplifier gives full-bodied sound, while V-Audio produces a more spacious, surround sound effect. There's an optical digital audio output allowing easy connection to a soundbar/base for much improved sound.

With its class-leading performance and the spec to match, the TX42AS740B makes it the pick for the discerning viewer.
