LED PANEL WITH 100HZ BLB
Whatever you watch, it’s hard not to be impressed by the quality of the Panasonic TX39-AS500B screen. This Panasonic uses a high quality LED screen to give the best possible results. Using an LED screen means that this TV isn’t just slim, it also boasts a superb contrast ratio, making blacks appear deeper than ever and whites shine brightly. Also standard is 100Hz BLB (Back Light Blinking). This means that when watching action movies or sports programmes, the TX39AS500B has the speed and clarity to keep up with the action without motion blur.
In addition to offering a superb picture quality, the Panasonic TX39AS500B also offers good sound quality. The built-in 20 watt amplifier provides a full-bodied sound quality. V-Audio is also on hand to produce a more spacious, surround sound effect. There are also both analogue (via headphones) and optical digital audio outputs; allowing you to easily improve the sound quality via a home cinema system or soundbar/base.
