    I am a maintenance director at a nursing home and I buy 32 inch LCD’s for resident rooms.I have purchased about 6 different brands from Amazon in the past 9 months.I like this one the best and plan on only buying these from now on.This unit has an excellent picture with good black level’s for an LCD.The sound on it is very good for a flat panel.There is a much better amount of clear bass and treble compared to the other brands that I have purchased.I like the fact that it has an SD card slot on the side.That makes it very easy for someone to show photos.SD seems to be taking over as the required memory in camera’s.It doesn’t have a USB slot which would have been nice.

    I wanted a 2nd TV for our less often used family space in our lower level. My only requirements were that it be reasonably priced, at least 32″, and interface with my older DVD player with component connections, and my older VCR with composite connections (yes, my kids still watch the occasional VHS movie). Frankly I didn’t care if it was internet connectable for Netflix, or had a specific refresh rate. After viewing a bunch of TVs and brands side by side at my local “Good Purchase” store, including generic knock-off brands, it was clear this model of Panasonic simply had the best picture for the price. The contrast, colors, and view-ability of the IPS panel really stood out against other TVs in this price range. After checking Amazon, Amazon had the lowest price anywhere. The box came with a hole in the side, but I guess that is not necessarily the fault of Amazon. Still the TV is not double-boxed when shipped, so fortunately whatever made the hole did not get through far enough to damage the TV. The TV was easy to affix to the stand (8 screws total) and the setup of the channels is VERY easy. The TV displays instructions for each step of the way so you always know what is going to happen or what to do if you want to exit a menu area. Of course at 32″ it does seem a bit smallish compared to my awesome Sharp 46″ TV in our main family room, but it will suffice for the amount it will get used. Of course it would be nice to have double the connections on the back, so I guess realistically I would give it 4.5 stars out of 5, but it does come with 2 HDMI, 1 Component, and 1 Composite. For the price of this TV it is what I would expect. I would rather have fewer connections and a quality picture than a sub-par picture with twice the connections. This would also make an excellent TV for a bedroom and for that you would likely not need that many connections anyway. Panasonic has a sleeper with this gem with its quality picture, IPS panel and at a very competitive price $three-twenty-nine with free shipping!

    Very nice budget HDTV, May 18, 2011

    This review is from: Panasonic VIERA TC-L32C3 32-Inch 720p LCD HDTV (Electronics)

    Just received mine today. Was quite easy to set up once I figured out the stand slides into a panel at the bottom of the TV. I own a Panasonic 42″ and set this one to the same settings since there are no real calibrations posted online yet since it’s a newer model. It looks very good and comparable to the 42″. Black/night scenes seem a little soft but it’s nothing to really complain about.

    Pros:
    Price ($343 1 day shipping)
    Sound Quality – I was replacing a 2007 Sony LCD and this sound blows the other away. I did hook it up to external speakers but the sound out of the box is not bad at all.
    Picture Quality – If 720p is fine for you you should have no problems with this TV. Non-HD channels are average quality and the HD ones are nice.
    Weight – It was surprisingly light, only 22 pounds with stand and 19 without

    Cons:
    Only 2 HDMI ports
    I was not able to program my cable remote using the codes provided for Panasonic. That may be because it’s a newer TV but this may be annoying to some people.

    So if you’re in the market for a budget HDTV I would highly recommend this one. It’s very user friendly and Panasonic has good quality products.
