Panasonic TC-L32C5


I don't expect a great picture from a $300 TV, but it can be better than this . Panasonic's TC-L32C5 is the company's least expensive 2012 television, and on paper it looks just like the competition's cheap 32-inchers. In person, however, it's just as...

The inexpensive Panasonic TC-L32C5 can produce a shade of black that's not as washed-out as some other low-cost TVs. The remote has a fine layout.

Poor shadow detail and even worse color accuracy hurt this TV's image quality compared with its entry-level peers.

Shoppers for bargain-basement 32-inch LCD TVs can do better than the Panasonic TC-L32C5.

Panasonic TC-L42U5


This Panasonic TC-L42U5 isn't the worst LCD TV out there. The Viera Link feature is useful; reducing your entertainment center to just one remote is certainly an attractive possibility. It is lightweight and consumes far less energy than the next best...

This television only consumes $16 worth of electricity per year

This LCD TV has a low contrast ratio and it is not available with a 42-inch screen

The TC-L42U5 looks great and sports a multimedia card reader, but the picture quality is not perfect.
