The Panasonic Viera TC-55AS530U is a 55-inch LCD HDTV with a native resolution of 1920x1080 (1080p). It has LED backlighting, a more energy-efficient type of backlighting. Rather than the basic 60Hz, it has a faster 240Hz frame rate, a feature designed to reduce motion blur.

There are 3 HD-capable inputs: 2 HDMI and 1 component-video, which doubles as a composite-video input. It also has 2 USB ports, which may be used to play media--photos, videos, and music--stored on a flash drive or memory card reader on the TV.
