Panasonic TX-L32S20 review

 

A Freeview HD tuner largely compensates for a lack of other frills

Impressive black levels ; Super sharp HD pictures ; Good SD performance

Unexciting design ; No media streaming or online features

Solid picture performance, plus that Freeview HD tuner make the S20 one to watch as the summer comes to a close

Panasonic TX-L32S20B television

 

Panasonic has made a big boast this year that its new Viera TVs contain both Freeview HD and Freesat HD tuners - and it's the only brand to do so. The S20 line-up, however, is the only range from the Japanese giant that contains "just" a Freeview HD...

HD & SD pictures, Freeview HD, contrast

Busy remote, no MP3 or DivX

It’s ironic that the birth of LED technology - which tends to produce deep, more believable blacks (as well as achieving a slimmer design) - has become popular just as old-fashioned LCD tech has got its act together on that front. And while this chubby...

Panasonic TX-L37S20B review

 

Freeview HD-equipped 37' LCD TV with V-real Pro 4 processing

Impressive HD performance ; Accurate colour palette ; Ease of use

Poor motion handling ; Generally noisy SD/broadcast pictures

Freeview HD is a major plus, but it's a tad undermined by patchy pictures and an uninspiring feature list

Does this 37in LCD TV do enough to stand out from the crowd?

It's good to see a 32in Panasonic LCD TV available at a competitive price, but is it worth the cash?

Panasonic TX-L32S20 review

 

Another supremely capable performer from Panasonic, this 32 inch screen in the S20 range does much right, but just misses out on the fifth star

Hefty specification ; sturdy build and finish ; stable, vibrant pictures ; tidy motion tracking

Hefty chassis ; TV broadcasts can look coarse ; black tones could be blacker

In isolation, the TX-L32S20 does little wrong. But against key rivals it comes up fractionally short

Panasonic TX-L37S20 review

 

Tempting price and the picture is perfectly watchable, but it does give a fair bit away to the best

Freeview HD tuner ; good sound ; dynamic picture with solid black levels

Lacks subtlety and finer details ; motion issues ; some good features missing

The price is tempting but there are much more capable TVs for not much more
