    Great 720p LCD for the Bedroom

    Posted .

    I recently bought this LCD to watch cable and DVDs in the bedroom. It fits the bill perfectly. I am about 13 feet away from the screen and the picture quality is great! I bought this Panny because I am so happy with the 50in.-G20 model I have in the entertainment room. I bought an LCD over a plasma for the bedroom since my wife will be doing a lot of viewing on it, and I didn't want to have her worry about all the plasma-related caring issues. The sound level is surprisingly more than sufficient Be sure to check your cable/satellite audio settings to ensure optimal audio. I also recommend the Cinema picture settings (looks perfect with Panny's patented dark-levels). In five years, when cable provides more 1080 programming, I then might consider upgrading to a 1080p set. But for now, for people/couples on a budget , wanting to watch casual cable HD in the bedroom, this LCD may be the best out there.

    Great TV, but no RCA audio out jacks

    Posted .

    I'll preface my review by noting that I returned the TV to Best Buy and they accepted my return with no restocking fees. The picture quality of this TV is remarkably good; I was especially impressed with the upconversion on my laptop (with HDMI out) to the TV. Videos viewed on YouTube looked remarkably great! The reason I wasn't happy with this is partly my own fault because I failed to notice that the TV has no RCA audio out nor headphone out jack. I live in an apartment and as a courteous tenant, I only listen to audio with wireless headphones when I'm alone. I tried all kinds of configurations with a receiver using the digital optical audio out connection and the audio signal was very weak. I see that almost every other competing brand of this TV type DOES have RCA out audio jacks. I'm not sure why Panasonic overlooked this or felt there was no need for this? Even with the Best Buy TV return, I'm out some money from Amazon returns, etc. I cannot give this TV 5 stars due to the lack of the non-digital audio out jacks - but if the consumer doesn't need these, this is a great choice in the 32 inch TV range.

    Outstanding!

    Posted .

    Out of the box the picture quality (in Standard mode) was very good (it popped with brightness and clarity) but being a perfectionist I proceeded to make some adjustments, mostly because there was too much red in the picture. Well, one thing led to another and before I knew it the picture was a mess! No problem I thought, I'll just press the button that sets it back to factory defaults and start over again, right? Wrong! After resetting to factory defaults, the picture now seemed to lose it's brightness that I was initially so impressed with and no amount of adjusting could get it back to where I started. This made no sense to me and I really wasn't sure what to make of it and was ready to pack it back in the box and return if to the store....glad I didn't though because I found a menu setting called C.A.T.S. which automatically adjusts the screen brightness according to the ambient lighting condition. Once I turned this off the brightness returned to the level it was when I first turned it on. A couple of minor adjustments to color and tint and the set became a keeper. I'm not sure why I needed to turn this feature off after a factory default reset but this seemed to be the only way to fully restore the out-of-box brightness....even changing from Standard to Vivid had very little effect so I'm convinced turning off C.A.T.S. was key. With that said, I'm considering purchasing another one of these sets for another room.

    Best TV for the size & price

    Posted .

    I purchased this TV to replace a 2 year old 32" Dynex that was starting to go bad. So far I am very pleased and this TV is a huge upgrade over what I had. The picture has much more clarity and rich, dark colors. Standard def looks great, not to mention how good HD looks. The IPS panel is a big help. It's also nice not to have a TV that freezes up every time you switch to an HD channel. Setup is incredibly easy and the Vierra link is handy for those of us who own Panasonic blu-ray players. One less remote needed. As far as people saying this is just a good "extra" TV, if you live in a studio apartment like I do, you don't need a huge 65" flat screen. I watch movies all the time and when you're less than 6 feet away from the screen, 32" or 37" is PLENTY. On a side note, the new Star Wars blu- rays looked outstanding on this set. On the sound, I a really don't get the reviews about "poor sound quality". Why would you ever buy a nice HDTV but yet not have a home theater to hook it up to? Why bother? I get it that some people don't have surround sound systems in their home. If that's going to be the case, don't expect to get that experience from small, 10W speakers! Many channels broadcast in Dolby 5.1 anyway, let alone DVDs, blu-rays and the like. The speakers on this TV or any other are NOT meant for high quality sound. They're good for watching the news or just having it on in the background while you do something else. For what it's worth, the simulated surround works pretty well for what it is. The sound of breaking glass during a commercial had me fooled recently! Bottom line Panasonic is a great brand, and you'll be hard pressed to find negative comments on this site or others. If you are looking for a TV this size and you're not looking to spend a fortune, this TV is for you. If I had to nitpick, the remote definitely takes time to get used to as some buttons are too close to each other.

    GREAT TV, GREAT PRICE

    Posted .

    I went out on blackfriday and at first got suckered into buying a dynex 32in 720p on sale for 229, 25dollars for 2 year insurance. That was mainly cuz the deal i came for the 42in sharp for 199 was long gone despite me getting there2 hours prior to store opening. As soon as I had the dynex set up i realized the picture was horrible, there was a delay for changing channels etc etc. I found this tv on best buy's website on sale for 319 (50bux off) then found one that was open box -20% so the price before my 2 year best buy insurance on it was 255. For such a mere price difference, the difference between both tvs was astounding! The Panasonic has great clarity, even with only 720p, NO input lag for changing channels, has vierra for instance sync with other Panasonic products etc, set up was easy, nice remote, SO MUCH HAPPIER WITH THIS TV!

    Great Value!

    Posted .

    I spent a couple of weeks researching various TV's, from the cheap to mid-priced level as dictated by my budget. While this is for my bedroom, I still wanted to enjoy watching it, not loathe the fact I skimped out on something and regret my purchase. My criteria was: -picture quality -inputs, including needing a PC input -sound quality -dependability I determined I did not need an LED TV, although it would be a nice aspect if I didn't have to pay more for it. I also determined the same for 1080p, at 32" there is no need to pay extra for something I wouldn't notice. After reading many reviews and comparing specifications, the TC-L32C3 was short listed. I had hard time pulling the trigger without seeing the picture in person, so I went to BB to check it out against a couple other possible units. Even before making sure the settings on each were adjusted properly, it was easy to see the Panny had very good color and stood out from the rest. A few tweaks to the settings and I had a great picture, devoid of graininess and fantastic black levels. My decision was solidified by seeing it in person, even more so when BB matched their lower sale price from the week before (which matched Amazon). I have been very pleased with the picture since getting it home and in my bedroom. The IPS panel really performs; watching HD nature programs really show off its color performance. It also has a feature to let the TV control its light intensity. I really like this as at night it will reduce its output so your eyes strain less, and adjust up for daytime viewing. Its sound quality is good enough that I don't think about it, meaning at least it isn't all tinny and weak. I haven't yet tested it with music, however. Even though we have a nice plasma in our living room, I find I like going to bed a bit early to watch science shows (especially if the wife is watching anything Housewives of somewhere related). I highly recommend this TV, provided you can spend the $50 or so above the uber-cheap sets to get a quality picture.

    Great tv at any price

    Posted .

    Got the tv today (Cyber Monday), set it up and couldn't wait to write a review. I read hundreds of reviews on dozens of tv's before buying this, and I couldn't be happier. It was easy to set up (most are#, the picture is great #most are), the two things that most impressed me are: the built-in speakers sound great and the tv is more energy efficient than even a comparably sized LED tv. It is our primary tv in a smaller living room, and we very happy with it.

    Very nice tv

    Posted .

    This is my first hdtv and i like it a lot. I bought it when it was $100 cheaper and I had no intentions of actually buying a new tv right then and there. But my older tv (projection) was already starting to go out so I decided to get a new one. The sound quality is really good. The picture is really good too but I dont have hd cable so I cant really judge on that. I do play my 360 on this tv and I have an hdmi cable and with it the picture of the game is gorgeous. This tv seems to be very well made and it has a lot of customizing options with it. sd card, 2 hdmi ports as well as the standard a/v ports and upgraded ports. For $300 bucks I got a good deal on this tv and I am very happy with it.

    Great TV

    Posted .

    Read a lot of positive reviews throughout the internet about this TV before purchasing it. I was a little cautious because of reviews about the sound of the TV. I can tell you it is clear and loud and I am only using the TV speakers. I often have to turn it down and still hear it just fine. It is primarily being used in the guest room at our apartment so I have a place to watch my shows and play games without interrupting my girlfriend. Since it has been hooked up have absolutely loved it. Very easy to set up (minus screwing in the base. The base was a different set up than my other HD TV's, because of small screws and tight places. However once done, feels very secure and sturdy, so maybe it is a good thing.) Hooking up to my Tivo Premier, XBox 360, Blu Ray, and Wii was simple. Strongly recommend TV for anyone looking for a great deal.

    Met all my expectations!

    Posted .

    I was a bit disappointed that my new Viera wouldn't play nicely with my older, "non-Best Buy" home theatre system. I normally have no trouble with these minor component connections, but there was no way! Had to have the Geek Squad come out a week later, and had to buy a fiberoptic cable of some sort, that was needed. If I'd have known the cable was needed, I would have bought it, used it, and saved the GS expense. BUT, at least I had the peace of mind of knowing it was all hooked up properly and ready to go. I was pretty thrilled with the picture--after being spoiled by a Sony with a perfect picture, I was holding my breath--but the picture is perfect! I'm not a gamer and not hooked up to the Internet, but my TV and DVDs are pretty awesome with this Viera. I'm very happy with it--and the remote is one of the best organized, "smartest" remotes I've seen in a long time. After the shock of the initial set-up expense, I'm very, very pleased!

    Great LCD for a second, smaller room

    Posted .

    I chose this LCD because I love my 48" Panasonic plasma. Great picture and sound. Happy so far. The only thing I wish it had is a full feature remote like my other TV. You cannot program this one for other components, as far as I can tell.

    Purchase this tv after returning a toshiba I bought for $249.00 on sale because of poor sound. This tv hooked up in 5 minutes and then bam, when it was turned on, the picture and sound will put you in heaven with a hdmi high speed cable!! What a difference a different tv will make. This tv will not dissappoint you ! The picture and sound are excellent !!!!! Period enough said. Worth the extra money.

    Very Good Basic Flat Screen

    Posted .

    I would recommend it. This will be our main TV in our smaller living room, replacing (finally) our 20 yr Sony tube TV. We will hook up only rabbit ears for digital broadcast, a VCR and DVD player, perhaps the laptop once in a while for Netflix. Picture seems quite good and can be set to dim automatically in response to room lighting levels. Viewing angle is excellent... looks fine to me even extreme viewing angles. I would have liked to have sound leveling and perhaps analog audio out jacks, but I can forgo such things to keep the cost down. Sound is an improvement over that old Sony, a pleasant surprise given that I've heard most flat screens have poor sound, the manufacturer's expecting people to hook up home theaters. Bass and treble adjustment a slight plus but don't make a huge amount of difference since it is, just the built-in TV speakers. I've had MOSTLY good luck with Panasonic; hopefully this will last but I may get an extended warranty as it seems LCD TVs don't usually all that many years. I could find a few nit-picky things to complain about, but overall I'm satisfied. As others have said, a great TV for the money.

    Beautiful Picture From A Top Notch Company

    Posted .

    Got this TV on sale. Have always loved Panasonic produced products and this one is no excepton. One of the features that I was looking for when researching for another TV was, "Energy Efficient." Yes, this television has it all! High definition, clarity, on screen menu and easy to follow instructions. I am somewhat deficient when it comes to technology and installation, but the on screen menu made it a breeze even for someone like me. Love my purchase and was very affordable.

    Great HD. No good audio connections

    Posted .

    I like the picture. Sound is good for the size limitations of the TV. BUT there is no headphone jack and no analog audio output. The digital output is Dolby encoded, meaning the converter is expensive, even if it's just headphones you seek. This TV can be a bargain. But not if you want to connect it to anything other than the most modern sound system. Also, there is no program guide for over the air programming. Recommend to a friend rating depends on what that friend is going to do with the unit.

    never had a bad Panasonic product

    Posted .

    like some of you I needed a new tv because my old one finally quit working. looked at several brandsunder the $300 range. they all appeared good enough but as I got to noticing none of them had an alarm clock. I loved that feature on my old tv. and thought I was out of luck finding one since the kid at the store told me none of them have that anymore. well, he was WRONG!! panasonic is the only brand I looked at (several other stores too) that has this feature. anyway, I've owned many panasonic products in my life and all of them are still working....that says a lot about a brand. this tv doesn't list it's contrast ratio anywhere. at least best buy doesn't. so if you're curious to know it's 20,000:1 (dynamic) my only complaint is I wish it had a usb input. it also controls my sony blue ray player via the hdmi connection. great additional feature! I also noticed the display says it's playing in 1080p with a blue ray. looks noticably better than the 720p tv stations.

    Great for casual viewing

    Posted .

    If movies are your thing then look elseware. The 1080p Panasonic plasmas far outshine this standard HD, 60 hz, LCD for picture quality but if you're just catching the news and you're not a videophile then this basic TV is just about as good as it gets. Setup is easy, controls are simple, and picture quality is pretty good right out of the box. Change the contrast/sharpness and the red/green settings to your taste and you're done. Takes about 10 minutes after you read the directions.

    Great TV.

    I have always purchased Panasonic TV's and have found them to be trouble free for many, many years. This set was easy to set up and I'm very pleased, as usual, with this purchase. I'm looking forward to many years of enjoyment from it.

    Excellent picture quality

    Posted .

    The picture on this Panasonic set is fantastic. Unlike a number of other units, including some that are more expensive, this TV has a very wide range of view and displays deep blacks and excellent colors. Being an LCD set, it is not quite as thin as an LED set but, unlike most LED sets, it has decent quality speakers. In other words, you do not have to hook it up to external speakers as you do with many LED sets to get decent sound quality. Overall, I am very pleased with the unit. Great picture, good sound and a very fair price for a high quality product!
