Excellent TV
5 Star Review   By member anilgumla - Jan 7, 2007   

Strengths: Nice Picture and sound, Powerful Built in tuner, Remote can operate DVD,VCR as well, beautiful look and finish. It does best what it's equipped to do.

Weakness: It doesn't have some nice to have features. No Clock, No Freeze picture function, No PIP, No PC input.

I was looking for a good 32" TV for last one month. My search zeroed in on this beautiful TC-32LX60 model based on it's reasonable pricing and overall performance. There are so many options available at 32" size in LCD market. At first I bought Sceptre from COSTCO but returned it within a month as I continued to look for a good brand TV. My final shortlist included Samsung S3251D, panasonic and Sony 32s2010 with panasonic being the cheapest among these. I looked at these sets in CC, Fry's and BB and picture quality seemed comparable to me. Reviews on various websites suggested that sound quality is definetely better on panasonic. I ordered it online and got it below $900. After having it for a week I feel, I made the right choice. SD pictures are great. It's definately better than my old Sanyo CRT. HDTV is excellent. Colors are very natural. So many setting options to customize. I am watching DVD movies on it via OPPO 970 upconverting player. I could not be more happier with the combination of 32lx60 and OPPO. Manual operation on TV set is conveniently located on top for easy operation. The swivel stand is a nice useful feature. Design of the set is better than most of the other 32" sets. My only gripe with the set is lack of PC input. Overall this set is worth the money you spend. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for 32" LCD.

Don't leave this one off your list - trust me!
5 Star Review   By member bennybenz10 - Dec 2, 2006   

Strengths: Beautiful modern look, ATSC tuner, variety of aspect ratio settings, direct control located on top of TV,

Weakness: Terrible remote control, favorites feature is useless, only one HDMI, manual is lacking,

I purchased this television after extensive research of perhaps every LCD TV on the market (and I'm not kidding). I first became intrigued by an article in Consumers Reports magazine which listed this TV as a good buy. I payed $892-even for the product, and was pleasantly surprised. I hope the following review will save you some of the initial frustrations and questions I had: TUNERS Upon researching the TV, I looked into the capability of using the ATSC tuner and QAM tuner to my advantage. I looked into lots of forums, called Panasonic, spoke to some electronic stores, and read a great amount of articles about these tuners and whether or not I would receive anything "special." For those of you who aren't quite sure or are fuzzy about the definition of an ATSC tuner, here's my best explanation. If you've ever plugged a TV into the wall without connecting it to cable, you probably know that you can receive your basic channels (i.e. CBS, FOX) by tuning into their antenna channels. All of these signals that you're picking up are analog antenna signals. As well as broadcasting their signals in this analog format, many local channels also broadcast their programming in a digital format. The Panasonic TC-32LX60 has a built-in DIGITAL antenna tuner, which means that you can pick up some of these signals using your TV (and no cable). Additionally, most of the night-time programming (i.e. CSI, Desperate Housewives) is broadcasted in HDTV on that digital channel. What does this mean? It means you can, if your local stations support it, receive FREE HDTV channels with your TV. Check with antennaweb.com to see if you're channels support any of this new tech. Should you consider this in your buying equation? Yes. All local cable channels will be REQUIRED to produce this signal very soon, so if your local channel doesn't already broadcast them, they WILL. If you've checked with antennaweb.com, realize that your channels won't necessarily line up with those of your TV. For example, antennaweb.com tells me that I can receive ABC on channel 10-1 (the strange number including the dash is what tunes your antenna), but I actually receive it on channel 88-1. So, for me, I had to check every single possible channel in order to find ABC's digital broadcast. Even if you find ABC on one of those funky numbers with a dash, you may not have found the HDTV signal. To check, press the RECALL button on your remote. If you see either 780p or 1080I (two different kinds of HDTV broadcasts), you've found the channel that broadcasts SOME programs in HDTV. If you don't you've found a DIFFERENT channel which only broadcasts non-HDTV programs. Don't give up if you don't find any channels. It took me several hours to find all of the channels, but I eventually found ABC, FOX, CBS, and NBC in HD (as well as some other non-HD digital channels). Remember that digital channels have dashes (i.e. 88-1, 88-2, 89-1, 89-2) The QAM tuner that is said to be a feature of this TV is virtually useless. The purpose of a QAM tuner is to pickup non-compressed digital channels that are broadcasted over your cable connection. The reality is that virtually NO cable companies broadcast any such channels. Don't even try calling them--they don't know what a QAM tuner is. REMOTE The remote is no reason to not buy the TV, but keep in mind that the remote control buttons are difficult to press and badly positioned. Don't worry, though--you can always purchase a universal remote. Due to the capability of the TV to accept 4 numbers for a channel, you'll have to use enter (press 6, then enter) or use zeros (0-0-0-6). LOOK Let's face it--we buy things because they look really cool. The Panasonic is no exception. If you don't particularly like the photo of the TV, take a look at it at a local electronics store. I checked with Best Buy to see what it was like and how big it was before I ordered it online (high recommended procedure). It makes a big statement when we have company over. HDMI HDMI is a high-definition digital interface which connects your TV to all sorts of products (i.e. DVD player, HD cable) and can trasmit high-def. Just like a coaxial cable to the wall can trasmit audio and video, an HDMI connection transmits audio AND video. This means that the cord from your DVD player to your TV doesn't have to be those annoying RED-YELLOW-WHITE cords (component), you can use an HDMI cable if your player supports it. The TV has only one HDMI port, so if you've got more than one HDMI-compatible product, you've got to decide who you love more! No worries, though. You can use the component (colored) inputs for everything else. The TV lets you label what each component is in the menu so that when you change inputs, you can select between 'DVD,' 'Cable', and 'Camera' and not Input 1, 2, and 3. THEY ARE NOW cutting me off from any more writing, but I was about to that the audio quality is very good and the cable depends on your connection. limit reached

Panasonic TC-32LX60 32
4 Star Review   By member CrazySteve - Nov 27, 2006   

Strengths: Picture clarity is among the best in its class. Attractive cabinet design looks impressive even when the TV is turned off. A good value, considering its moderate price.

Weakness: Excellent wide horizontal viewing angle, but rather narrow vertical viewing angle. The owner's manual does not adequately explain what each of the controls is for, or how to adjust them.

I shopped for LCD televisions off and on for several months before buying. The model that originally caught my eye was last year’s model TC-26LX50, that I saw at a closeout price at a local dealer. It had a very clear picture, compared to other, more expensive sets. I didn’t buy that one, because it didn’t have a built-in ATSC tuner, while the current TC-26LX60 model does. Eventually, I decided that the 26” set was too small, and opted for this 32” model, which didn’t cost all that much more, and still fit in the space I wanted to put it in. The TC-32LX60 is the middle-priced 32” LCD set in Panasonic’s line. The low-end one is the TC-32LE60 and the high-end one is the TC-32LX600. You can view the differences on Panasonic’s website, although the webpages do a rather poor job of explaining what the advantages are of the more expensive models. No store in my area carried more than one of the models, so I couldn’t do a side-by-side comparison on audio and video quality. My choice of the LX60 was based on price, and the look of the silver cabinet and black bezel. The LE60 has a silver cabinet and gray bezel, and the LX600 has a black cabinet and black bezel. The picture is far better than other less expensive brands, and as good, or nearly as good, as more expensive brands. Some of the more expensive brands do have more features though, like more than one HDMI input. The sound through the hidden internal stereo speakers is impressive, though it cannot compare to a quality surround sound system with subwoofer. It is fine for casual television watching though. Under weaknesses, I mentioned it has a wide horizontal viewing angle, but a rather narrow vertical viewing angle. This means you can sit to the far left or right, and still have good viewing, but if the TV is higher or lower than your head, and not tilted to directly face you, the picture quality will be reduced. If you want to mount the television up high, make sure you get a wall mount or ceiling mount that lets you tilt the screen down. A small bulge in the back of the cabinet makes it difficult to wall mount it using some universal TV mounts, without buying longer screws and extra spacer washers or custom brackets. The owner’s manual inexplicably jumps from English in the first 23 pages, then to Spanish for the next 12 pages, then back to English. It does not explain in enough detail how to adjust the set properly. The default settings do not come close to producing the best picture. Even worse, it is too easy to accidentally reset all settings to the default with one wrong button press on the remote. Has only one HDMI input and one component video input. Has only composite video output.

Exceeded my expectations
5 Star Review   By member jpurins - Nov 13, 2006   

Strengths: Easy set-up Vivid picture Built-in HD tuner that pulls in even weaker stations Reasonable price Swivel base Non-glare screen Compact design (no side "wing" speakers) Rich sound

Weakness: No PC input Sluggish channel changes

I bought this at Best Buy as an "Open Box" item - sale price was $1099, plus a $300 Gift Card due to the "open box." The user's manual was missing, but setup was very user-friendly, and I had programmed the stations and was enjoying the TV 15 minutes after bringing it home. The big surprise was how many HDTV stations I was able to pick up with a strong signal from my rooftop antenna. Several channels, especially PBS, appeared less compressed and with less pixilation coming from the antenna than the same stations from the Time Warner Cable connection. I have a Toshiba LCD with an external Magnavox tuner, which only gets half the HD stations that I get with this Panasonic TV - both feeding from the same rooftop antenna. I downloaded the user's manual from the Panasonic website, so now I can take full advantage of the features. There are limited features, but that makes setup and operations a breeze.

Great 32" LCD TV
5 Star Review   By member jshwei - Nov 8, 2006   

Strengths: Amazing video and audio performance, High sensitivity for air HDTV receiving, Also, a fine-looking design

Weakness: It is difficult to connect PC (desktop or laptop) video output to the TV, because its Video Input 3 (side) has no S_Video connectivity

I used a common antenna to receive HDTV signal at home, more than 20 miles from TV stations, and get a great picture and sound quality on local channels (comparing with another project TV). It is the best 32” LCD TV on Performance / Price ratio.

Excellent Brand Name TV, and for a very good price
4 Star Review   By member swimmerslice921 - Nov 3, 2006   

Strengths: Excellent price for name brand TV, Black levels and overall PQ is very good.

Weakness: Only 1 RF and HDMI port, user interface is very simple and navigation through it isn't that great. Built-in HD Tuner gets the job done, but could be better.

This TV is a great name brand television sold at a very good price, relative to what Sony and Samsung are selling their models at. Picture quality is very good and for an LCD, the black levels are excellent. Image is bright enough to bring out alot of detail in pictures. Upconverted DVDs via component look astonishing; haven't tried HDMI yet. OTA HD with Zenith Silver Sensor Antenna gave me an excellent HD picture coming from the local stations. Signal strength on the other hand, was only satisfactory (I also have a Westy LTV-32w6 that brought in channels from neighboring metropolitan areas 150 miles away, while the Panny couldn't do that; I used the same antenna for both setups). What annoys me is the cheap user interface thats programmed into the TV. In short, it looks very basic and......well, ugly. The good price for this television was a result of some corner cuttings: Panasonic decided to mimimise the number of inputs on this television. There is only 1 HDMI, 1 RF, and 1 YPbPr input. Most competitors have 2 YPbPrs and the fancier ones even have 2 RFs and 2 HDMI. I am guessing the reason this television is priced better than its competition is likely due to its limited number of inputs and its cheap menu/user interface. Luckily Panasonic didn't cut corners with the quality of the image you get. What this television lacks in video input numbers and cheap menu interface is definitely made up for with its very good, near perfect HD picture. If you have basic cable via a coaxial cable and you want OTA HD, this unit can only take one coax (either from antenna or cable service, you can only have one plugged in at a certain time). If that is not a problem for you, this TV is a solid buy.....you should go for it.

Great Panasonic 32 in LCD HD tv
4 Star Review   By member slt5a - Oct 6, 2006   

Strengths: This tv has great picture quality, even on the non-hd channels.

Weakness: it does not have a pc input

I have enjoyed this tv from the moment I took it out of the box. Set up was easy and the picture quality has been better than I expected. The sound is also crisp. I use the tv purely for viewing purposes (no gaming or pc uses) so the tv fits nicely with my needs. Price and quality of product match.

Weakness: No PC input Sluggish channel changes

I bought this at Best Buy as an "Open Box" item - sale price was $1099, plus a $300 Gift Card due to the "open box." The user's manual was missing, but setup was very user-friendly, and I had programmed the stations and was enjoying the TV 15 minutes after bringing it home. The big surprise was how many HDTV stations I was able to pick up with a strong signal from my rooftop antenna. Several channels, especially PBS, appeared less compressed and with less pixilation coming from the antenna than the same stations from the Time Warner Cable connection. I have a Toshiba LCD with an external Magnavox tuner, which only gets half the HD stations that I get with this Panasonic TV - both feeding from the same rooftop antenna. I downloaded the user's manual from the Panasonic website, so now I can take full advantage of the features. There are limited features, but that makes setup and operations a breeze.

Great 32" LCD TV
5 Star Review   By member jshwei - Nov 8, 2006   

Strengths: Amazing video and audio performance, High sensitivity for air HDTV receiving, Also, a fine-looking design

Weakness: It is difficult to connect PC (desktop or laptop) video output to the TV, because its Video Input 3 (side) has no S_Video connectivity

I used a common antenna to receive HDTV signal at home, more than 20 miles from TV stations, and get a great picture and sound quality on local channels (comparing with another project TV). It is the best 32” LCD TV on Performance / Price ratio.

Excellent Brand Name TV, and for a very good price
4 Star Review   By member swimmerslice921 - Nov 3, 2006   

Strengths: Excellent price for name brand TV, Black levels and overall PQ is very good.

Weakness: Only 1 RF and HDMI port, user interface is very simple and navigation through it isn't that great. Built-in HD Tuner gets the job done, but could be better.

This TV is a great name brand television sold at a very good price, relative to what Sony and Samsung are selling their models at. Picture quality is very good and for an LCD, the black levels are excellent. Image is bright enough to bring out alot of detail in pictures. Upconverted DVDs via component look astonishing; haven't tried HDMI yet. OTA HD with Zenith Silver Sensor Antenna gave me an excellent HD picture coming from the local stations. Signal strength on the other hand, was only satisfactory (I also have a Westy LTV-32w6 that brought in channels from neighboring metropolitan areas 150 miles away, while the Panny couldn't do that; I used the same antenna for both setups). What annoys me is the cheap user interface thats programmed into the TV. In short, it looks very basic and......well, ugly. The good price for this television was a result of some corner cuttings: Panasonic decided to mimimise the number of inputs on this television. There is only 1 HDMI, 1 RF, and 1 YPbPr input. Most competitors have 2 YPbPrs and the fancier ones even have 2 RFs and 2 HDMI. I am guessing the reason this television is priced better than its competition is likely due to its limited number of inputs and its cheap menu/user interface. Luckily Panasonic didn't cut corners with the quality of the image you get. What this television lacks in video input numbers and cheap menu interface is definitely made up for with its very good, near perfect HD picture. If you have basic cable via a coaxial cable and you want OTA HD, this unit can only take one coax (either from antenna or cable service, you can only have one plugged in at a certain time). If that is not a problem for you, this TV is a solid buy.....you should go for it.

Great Panasonic 32 in LCD HD tv
4 Star Review   By member slt5a - Oct 6, 2006   

Strengths: This tv has great picture quality, even on the non-hd channels.

Weakness: it does not have a pc input

I have enjoyed this tv from the moment I took it out of the box. Set up was easy and the picture quality has been better than I expected. The sound is also crisp. I use the tv purely for viewing purposes (no gaming or pc uses) so the tv fits nicely with my needs. Price and quality of product match.

Panasonic TC-32LX60 32inch LCD TV
5 Star Review   By member chessie1931 - Oct 2, 2006   

Strengths: Good analog picture quality. Black bezel makes picture seem bigger. Fiber optic audio output for improved sound quality. Three composite video inputs available. Great sound.

Weakness: Lower volume on all HD channels than on all analog channels.

I already have a Panasonic 42 inch plasma HD TV. I did a lot of research before buying this second HD TV. Price was great and features were outstanding. Has built-in HD tuner. As a result, no cable box is needed with my cable system to receive local HD channels. I highly recommend this product, either as the only HD TV or as the additional HD TV.

Panasonic TC-32LX60 Widescreen LCD HD-TV
5 Star Review   By member captchuck - Sep 14, 2006   

Strengths: Outstanding picture!

Weakness: No "last" channel selector on remote. Change channel time is slow

Lite Weight, easy to follow on screen and wiring schematic setup instructions. The HDMI input best feature. Some boxes packaged from Panasonic contain the HDMI cable. I wonder what gives here?

Frustrated with Service
1 Star Review   By member Frazzled - Sep 7, 2006   

Strengths: Good picture and excellent sound

Weakness: Controls stoped working after one month. Can't get to the right people to fix it.

We loved this TV for the 37 days it worked. For the last two and a half months, we have been trying to get the TV repaired. Panasonic has contracted out their repair work. Three visits by their contract technician and two new parts haven't solved the problem. If anyone knows how to break through the Panasonic service department automated "stonewall", I wish they would share their secrets. Automated systems that will give out case numbers and call a tech aren't any good if the tech can't fix the problem and has no authority. Of course, purchasing from Circuit City is a big mistake. They take no responsibility - it's all Panasonics.

GREAT QUALITY AND VALUE
5 Star Review   By member artaclaro - Aug 5, 2006   

Strengths: Screen clarity; 20 watt speakers that positively compete with your surround sound speakers; front cabinet color and black matted picture frame compliment viewing enjoyment.

Weakness: No VGA connection for laptop computer, thus minimizing the enjoyment of connecting laptop to tv to show digital photos or surf the net using the tv.

I have compared this tv to other brands such as Sony, LG, Samsung, and Olevia. What made me decide to buy the Panasonic 32" HDTV are: 1. Picture clarity 2. Great sound quality of its 20 watt speakers 3. No glare from the tv frame (unlike the glossy frame of the Samsung HDTV) 4. Reasonably priced. I have been viewing this product for two weeks at my brothers house, and I am consistently amazed of the picture and sound quality. Now I am getting one for myself. . . thanks to Pricegrabber.com's website, I was able to find one for a great price!

Excellent LCD HDTV overall
4 Star Review   By member dkfsum - Aug 5, 2006   

Strengths: Nice value, good image quality, good sound quality, has appealing design, has built in HD tuner

This HDTV is an excellent buy. Both the image and sound qualities are top-notch for a LCD TV in this price range, especially with an included ATSC tuner and surround sound setting. No overall weaknesses have been noticed yet.

5 Star Review   By member ruangPC - Jul 27, 2006   

Strengths: Outstanding consistency of picture clarity when HDMI connections used

Weakness: Still looking, picture, sound, 'logic" of control layout best I've seen

I did extensive research on HDTVs before this pur- chase, Already owned 5 year old HD-ready Samsung, but watching this tv is comparable to the difference between black&white and color TV. 1080i broadccasts are undescribable ih their reality. Very pleased with price, controls, viewer interface and options. Great price with a little research, too!

TC-32LX60 32" LCD TV (16:9, 1366x768, 1800:1, HDTV)
4 Star Review   By member obninsk23 - Jun 28, 2006   

Strengths: Design

Weakness: Didn't find yet

Good TV. Need to reduce brightness from default. So far no problems. I have plasma 42" Panasonic, and Plasma seems more clearer then LCD. Too bad there are no plasmas at 32" sizes.

TC-32LX60 32
5 Star Review   By member nyczsadzdom - Jun 12, 2006   

Strengths: Great color and bright picture. The Sound is great.

Weakness: No weaknesses at all!!!

I love this lcd. One of the best LCD tv i ever brought. I do alot with this tv. It is great with everything games, computer, dvd, sports game, cable and anything that you can think of is great with. Provides fine detail for outstanding HDTV reproduction. This TV requires a HDTV tuner and displays HDTV program images in 720p and in 1080i. It also accepts signals from a variety of analog and digital sources. The LCD panel technology reduces glare and provides bright and vivid pictures. Set the sound mode to Standard, Dynamic or Speech depending on the audio characteristics of different programs. You can also change the level of each sub-menu (like Bass, Treble, Balance, AI Sound and Surround for each of these sound modes) to suit your personal preference.

Panasonic TC-32LX60 32" LCD TV
5 Star Review   By member Vincent_Villagio - May 18, 2006   

Strengths: *Best 32" LCD Picture Available *Appealing Cabinet *3000:1 Contrast Ratio *HDMI with Plenty of other Inputs and Outputs *Great Remote *Easy Access on TV Controls *Reasonably Priced

Weakness: NONE, but if there must be... TV is 1/2" thicker than other models (who cares)

This HDTV is the best bang for the buck. Cosmetically, the black frame within the silver finish adds a nice touch to the slightly varying sizes of 16:9 letterbox dimensions. When a movie or HDTV program is viewed this black inner frame blends right in to the movie or program. Other LCD’s 16:9 format shows as if it does not belong because of the varying hues of the TV’s inner border. On the 32LX60 the images appear very natural—not like a letterbox format that was added to the TV’s original LCD display. The image is almost identical to the Sony Bravia series and the new Samsungs, however not as dark. This adds to a most natural picture. The Panasonic has the most natural colors of any 32” LCD available at least $200 less… and it has a built in HDTV tuner. Most of the lower priced LCD’s do not; they are HDTV “ready.” The TC-32LX60 has a contrast ratio of 3000:1. This means, perhaps the sharpest LCD available at any price. There are no greater contrast ratios. It has all the inputs and outputs you will ever need in convenient locations. The sound is as good as it gets—20 watts, with many sound options. The controls and inputs are conveniently located, unlike the Toshiba 32HL95 which also has a nice picture, but the design of the chases cannot even come close to the Panasonic. Forget LG, Sharp. Niko and JVC. Look for the cheapest price through pricegrabber… and you will be astonished at how inexpensive this TV is. This is the finest 32” LCD TV available today.
