Offering excellent picture performance, Panasonic's 32-inch VIERA TC-L32C22 LCD HDTV provides 720p high-definition imagery and an improved panel with In Plane Switching (IPS) for an ultra-wide viewing angle and higher moving picture resolution for clear, bright images. This C22 series model also features 24P Playback function for superb imagery from 24-frame movies on DVD and Blu-ray Disc, and an 18,000:1 contrast ratio.

This and other models in the C22 line offer Panasonic's VIERA Image Viewer feature, which enables you to play slideshows of JPEG images stored on SD memory cards, as well as the VIERA Link feature for controlling a variety of compatible components--from Blu-ray Disc players to digital cameras--through a single remote.

Adhering to Panasonic's commitment to the environment, this VIERA model--as well as all 2010 models--features improved power consumption and meets the new, more stringent Energy Star 4.0 requirements.

Key Features

In Plane Switching (IPS): The latest iteration of Panasonics IPS LCD panel features excellent light transmittance and a wide viewing angle. The wide 178-degree viewing angle--both horizontally and vertically--ensures clear images even when viewed from an angle. And the panel backlight's wide transmission aperture enhances the contrast between light and dark, improving motion-image response.

 

VIERA Image Viewer: View full-HD images with the integrated SD card slot, enabling you to view JPEG photos captured from your digital camera or camcorder on the big screen. Navigate your images via an easy-to-use thumbnail display.

Which Size HDTV is Right for My Room?

HDTV Size chart
With standard-definition TVs, the rule used to be that viewers would feel comfortable watching a set from a distance of 3 to 6 times the screen size in inches. With HDTV, the resolution is so much better that you can sit closer to a larger TV without noticing the pixels. So with HDTVs, the rule tends to be you can sit anywhere from 1.5 to 3 times the screen size (in inches) for the best experience.

If you know the size of the room you have already, where you want to sit, and where your new HDTV should go once you get it, you can figure out the size HDTV you should get.

  • Minimum size = Viewing distance/3
  • Maximum size=Viewing distance/1.5

Customer Reviews

The TV was easy to set up and the picture quality is great.
The Country Squire
This is stereo, 2 speakers, but the sound is worse than in my old CRT TV with single mono speaker.

I also visited showrooms to see what looked best to my eye.

I am not an expert on LCD televisions, just someone in need of a new TV. It will ultimately be used in the bedroom, but for now it is in the family room. Although it is not a huge room, it opens to the kitchen and the ceiling is vaulted. For months I studied reviews of different models on the internet hoping to at least discover which manufacturers had the most service problems to avoid that aggravation, along with which brand had the best rated picture quality. I also visited showrooms to see what looked best to my eye.

After my research I narrowed my search to a 720p TV because although 1080p of course creates a higher quality picture, it isn't as critical on a 32 inch TV or smaller. Since new televisions usually appear in March, my plan was to buy a discontinued model and take advantage of clearance pricing. Unfortunately I waited too long and the two choices I'd focused on were both no longer available. This TV met my needs, the price was right and Panasonic was one of the two brands I'd settled on.

Light weight and easy to handle, out of the box all that was necessary was putting the stand together with a few screws and then attaching it with a few more to the television. I already had a composite video/audio cable which is good because Panasonic doesn't include one. The cable consists of three male plugs on each end -- one red, one white and one yellow. The red and white are for right and left audio and the yellow is video. There are ports on the back of the cable box and the TV with the same colors so it was easy to connect - video out on the cable box and video in on the TV. An extra step I took, in order to get my local stations' HD programs, was to hook up a basic inside antenna by screwing the antenna cable into the same named jack on the back of the TV.

Bought this Panasonic Viera TCL32C22 at PC Richards, a NY/NJ area appliance shop. Floor price was $399, but I paid $349.

Let me start off by saying I own a video production company, so I sit in front of televisions all day. When HD TV's first hit the market, I was unimpressed with the image quality. At close scrutiny, most HD TV's that I've seen have horrible artifacting, due to the MPEG-2 compression used to transmit signals.

After hooking it up to my FIOS HD box using an HDMI cable, the first channel I put on was YES network, because I know that NY Yankees games are broadcast in high definition. I was extremely impressed with the image clarity and the color. There was no visible artifacting, even when sitting a few inches from the screen. I surfed through the high-def channels and found varying degrees of images. Some channels just stretch the picture and slap an "HD" logo on it, so you really need to look at a high-def broadcast to judge it.

My next step was to connect a DVD player using a set of Analog component cables. I choose two DVD's: the BBC "Planet Earth" series because of the wonderful photography it includes, and the Hollywood movie "There will be Blood," for both the photography and sound.

"Planet Earth" displayed in widescreen mode on the DVD/TV combination without me setting anything. From ten feet, the pictures were gorgeous. The color was rich and vibrant. At screen-side, black blockiness was apparent; but when I sat a few feet away the MPEG-2 artifacting disappeared.

I loaded "There will be Blood" into the DVD player. The picture looked great and the sound was fantastic.

if you are transitioning from crts, this is perfect. i got this at best buy for $300 and it's great. if you are all about settings and black levels and all the mumbo jumbo out there, this might not be it for you. but if you want a no hassle, plug-in-and-go tv, this is it. find an hd sports channel and you'll see it's worth every penny.

i was comparing this model with an similar lg and chose panasonic strictly for the price ($75 less when i bought the panasonic). also, dont be blinded with all this talk about 1080p, with a tv this small (compared to 50"-60"), 720 won't ruin your tv or movie experience. use that extra $100-$150 and buy a blu-ray player or a new tv stand.

This model is great except for one important annoyance. All my video hook-ups use HDMI. After about 1 hour and 55 minutes of viewing the sound suddenly distorts to being completely garbled. Turning the set off then back on clears this problem, but the TV's start-up is so slow that this takes about twenty seconds for the picture and sound to come back on. Of course, this is very near the end of every 1-hour TV show and is usually at the most critical point in the show ! This is extremely annoying. I doubt that this problem is due to my Verizon FiOS set top box. Verizon is extraordinary about demanding perfect performance from their equipment suppliers for all their STB's, routers, modems, etc. that they supply for their various services.----- Otherwise, this model has exceeded my expectations for only four hundred bucks at KostKo. It's too bad that a single serious flaw ruins the overall high quality of this product. ----- I use the Western Digital WD TV LIVE PLUS HD to stream videos (DVD and .AVI files) from my Win7 PC via HDMI and a 100mbit hardwired LAN cable. This is the only solution (that is, the WD on HDMI) I have found that displays HD video from my PC that completely fits the horizontal width of the TV screen. ----
