Excerpt: This was our first flat screen so the comparison to the older style tv's is a big jump; exceptional. It has been reliable: we have had it for almost a year now with no problems. The picture is really good (not great as I had expected) but it was worth the price we paid. The sound is not the best, you have to turn the volume way up on movies and still the dialogue is hard to catch sometimes. For theater-quality sound though I suppose most will use a home stereo system.
Excerpt: Me and my husband held off on buying a new tv for a long time and finally decided to upgrade from our bulky analog to a flat screen a couple of months ago. Tvs have changed so much since we last bought one we really didn't know what to look for and were totally confused. The main thing I was concerned about was the picture. So many of these new tvs have bad pictures.
Excerpt: We have had our Panasonic 32" LCD TV for a little over a year and it works great. There are enough "inputs" to have our Wii, old-school VCR, DVR, and DVD player all hooked up at the same time. Plus there is an option to put in an SD card. The picture is sharp and clear and the color is great. Once in a great while the sound gets louder or softer during the middle of a show for no apparent reason, but it hasn't been bad enough that it really bothers us.
Excerpt: We've had this set for about a week. We love it. The picture clarity, settings, remote, and i-pod dock that came with it are wonderful. We shopped around for a very long time before we decided on this set. We almost bought the Vizio instead, but balked when we learned about sound quality, and that we would need to have an additional speaker system or sound bar. I guess that was the deal breaker for us.
Excerpt: I have never really loved watching television, except for my favorite shows, but now I can really enjoy the television watching experience with this Panasonic - TC-L32X2 32 in. HDTV-Ready LCD TV . I wanted a high quality television that would fit in the small space of my apartment, and this television unit is the perfect solution. The size is big without being too large and taking up too much room. I love the quality of the picture and the sound is amazing!
Excerpt: So I have the 32" now for about a year. So far, there are definitely things that I can say I like and do not like about it. I feel first of all that the negatives of this tv is the sound quality. Even when turned up high, it is not very loud. Otherwise, there is really nothing else I can say about it. For what I purchased this television for, I would say the price for the quality is about just right and pretty darned good.
Summary: Warning to anyone trying to connect to speakers using RCA cables. This TV has only digital optical audio output. There is no option to select the audio output format. When using a digital-to-analog converter the output must be PCM. I called Panasonic to try to confirm if the default output was PCM and got some idiot who tried to tell me that the TV had nothing to do with the audio output format.
Summary: Having studied the reviews and consumer reports extensively and comparing to other similar models, I finally decided this was the tv for me. I wish I hadn't. The sound is horrible--even turned all the way up, I can barely hear it 6 ft away. The delay when turning the tv on is the worst I have ever seen. I can go downstairs and get a cup of coffee before it actually comes on.
Summary: Panasonic's TC-32X2 lives up to Consumer Reports' June 2010 recommendation and, at Amazon's current price (325 dollars), is a bargain. It provided high image quality out of the box (i.e. did not need adjustment) and its sound quality exceeded my expectations for a relatively small, 32" unit.
Summary: I just received this TV and I love it. I only have an analog signal and a few digital channels coming in and it still looks great! I cant wait to get the HD signal. I also have a 50" Panasonic (plasma) in the basement and it's performing great as well. Consumer Reports also list this TV (32" one) as a "best buy".
