Summary: This TV has a fault which means if I try to watch my DVD player there is a vertical bar the width of the screen constantly moving from left to right. This becomes irritating and distracting. Also, the picture is grainy and looks washed-out. Do not use.
Summary: This product is OK and I am sure that it is better than most but I am still left with the feeling that I should have known better. I have always had Sony product before and the quality of picture and reliability was always excellent where as the Panasonic picture does not seem as good and the performance temperamental.
Common software fault causes it to switch off randomly

Summary: This model suffers from a common software fault causing it to suddenly go into standby mode without cause. Search online for "TX-32LMD70 standby" and you'll get an idea of the scale of the problem. Allegedly a firmware upgrade fixes this, but the automated update (via terrestrial DVB) doesn't work and Panasonic will not issue a do-it-yourself copy of the firmware file (which is administered via SD card), instead forcing you to go to a local dealer who will try to charge...
Summary: Purchased this tv in Jan 2008 and have been very pleased with it. After comparing several tv's, a request to the salesman to look at their respective remote controls left me in no doubt this was the tv for me. It is very intuitive with clear and easy to read buttons. At my age (50 female) I struggle with technology but found this tv very easy to set up. The Manual is clear.
Pros: Remote Control very easy to read and intuitive. Silver base, matt black otherwise as opposed to high shine piano black that shows every speck of dust.
Excerpt: I was always going to buy a new TV but was overwhelmed by the amount of choice & conflicting advice available so I set out my priorities. I would mainly be watching movies & sport (on standard definition but with the option to upgrade later). The picture should be sharp, able to cope with fast movement and display good colour. Sound wasn''t as important because I planned to pump the audio through my stereo.
Pros: Stylish looks, picture quality.
Cons: Slightly cumbersome method of switching between inputs.
Summary: Really, really pleased with this tv, it deserves all the "best buy" reviews in the magazine tests. At first I was disappointed with the picture but i quickly realised this was on the factory default settings. Having played with all the options, particularly setting noise reduction to max, the picture is absolutely fantastic. Pin sharp, flicker free and lovely natural looking contrast and colours, unlike some cheaper models.
Excerpt: This is a fairly recent purchase for me, since I only got it a few months ago. I have been completely happy with all aspects of it so far, but have not tried to connect a console or a PC. "Installability" I was really quite impressed by how easy this TV is to set up and get going. The fact that my mother, who is definitely not technologically inclined, managed to set it up by herself when I was out ought to show you; if she can do it, anyone can!
Pros: Good, clear picture . Easy to install and operate .
Summary: I purchased this TV to replace my Sony CRT and was slightly dubious at first as I have heard a lot of varying comments about LCD picture quality. I have wall mounted the TV and I must say I am not dissapointed with the picture quality especially from the XBOX360 through the composite connections. You must remember to change the output of the XBOX via it's display menu but it is crystal clear in picture.
Summary: I spent a LONG time chosing this, didn't want to regret buying something inferior. A friend sells these for a living and was pretty clear that this was the superior to all of the 32's at this price range, even the Sony KDL32D3000 which I almost opted for. Yes its a little more expensive but I was happy to pay a little more to get the better TV. I admit the sound quality isn't stunning but then that applies to its rival's as well, picture wise its flawless.
Summary: The Panasonic TX-32LXD70 will, without a doubt, surprise you. Especially at this price point. The picture quality is stunning for both SD and HD signals. I have been in-store and compared visuals from Sony's (more expensive but equal quality), Samsung's (not my favourite), Toshiba's (best price/quality ratio) and Sharp's HD-Ready models. All of them rather top of the line. To be honest, the only two that stood out of the crowd were the Sony and Panasonic displays.
