Panasonic TC-L37D2 LED LCD HDTV Review - Intro

 

The Panasonic TC-L37D2 ($1099 MSRP) is a mid-priced LED-backlit LCD that failed to deliver the goods. While the included iPod dock is a great extra, Panasonic should have focused on the basics, like passable color performance and a better black level.

We had some hope for the Panasonic TC-L37D2 ($1099 MSRP) when it first arrived. Panasonic is obviously known as the premier plasma TV manufacturer, and we were curious to see what they could do with a mid-level LED-backlit LCD TV. As it turns out, not...

Panasonic TC-L37D2

 

The Panasonic TC-L37D2 ($1099 MSRP) is a 37-inch mid-level LCD from a manufacturer that's primarily known for plasma TVs. It comes with a built-in iPod dock - a convenient but ultimately unnecessary feature, considering the hundreds of inexpensive iPod...

The Panasonic TC-L37D2 has a stout little body and short neck. The remote control and menu interface are not terribly elegant. Though we liked the convenience of simply dropping iPod into a dock to play music, listen to music, or view photos, Panasonic...

Panasonic TC-L37D2 Review – 37-inch LED LCD HDTV

 

With an unbelievable contrast ratio of 2,000,000:1, you can expect splendid blacks and the purest of whites. This of course makes the pictures look crisp and natural. The Intelligent Scene Controller further adds to the clarity of the images. Panasonic...

Panasonic TC-L42D2 Review – 42-inch LED LCD HDTV

 

Panasonic is better known for its Plasma line of HDTVs but this year it wants to diversify its market by introducing the LED HDTVs. It has still to experiment with 3D and Internet access technologies in the LED TVs but includes The Viera Link and Viera...

The TV has a wide viewing angle of 178 degrees which allows you to be seated in any part of the room and still get a good view of the pictures without any disturbance. It is not necessary to sit right in front of the TV to have a great view. Panasonic...

Great picture, while it last. Poor service department.

 

Stay away from Panasonic. When their web site states on thing. Their service department will tell you something completely different. There is not a big problem with a TV set failure, from time to time. It happens to everyone, but when you don't...

Good picture quality, easy setup and operation, good overall size

The glass panel on the front reflects light in bright situations ; I have owned the TV since Aug.20,2010, it is now Feb 28,2011, and the TV has completely failed. The best I can tell at this point it appears to be computer board problem
