Product Description

Amazon.com

Offering advanced LCD technology for the highest possible picture quality, Panasonic's 37-inch VIERA TC-L37U22 LCD HDTV features an improved panel with In Plane Switching (IPS) for an ultra-wide viewing angle and higher moving picture resolution that results in clear, bright images. This U22 series model provides 1080p resolution, 24P Playback function for superb imagery from 24-frame movies on DVD and Blu-ray Disc, and a 20,000:1 contrast ratio.

This and other models in the U22 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.

 

VIERA Link: Allows the interlinked operation of various AV devices--from DVD and Blu-ray Disc players to home theater sound systems to digital cameras and camcorders--using only the VIERA remote control by simply connecting the devices to each other by an HDMI cable (see pop-up illustration).

 



Panasonic's VIERA U22 series LCD HDTV.

 

 



With the VIERA Image Viewer, you can view a slideshow of JPEG photos stored on your camera's SD memory card.

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

Great 1080 TV. At 37" you need a 1080, with 32" or less 720 is fine unless you are sitting closer than 4 feet. So if you are wondering if you should save a few bucks and go with 720p instead, 37" is the crossover point where 1080p is much better choice because you will see the difference at average viewing distances. Also, at 37" or larger you really need to start investing in blu-ray DVD's since at this size regular DVD's don't view sharply - blu-ray is a 1080 format, regular DVD's are not.

Picture quality is excellent from my Comcast HD cablebox and I have not had any problems with ghosting because it is only 60Hz - my preference is to use the 'Cinema' setting with a few slight adjustments. Sound quality is acceptable but not special partly because the speakers are not in front and don't point towards the viewer which is the case with most modern sets but some Samsungs TV's do have speakers in front. This mean sound quality will never be great unless you hook it to receiver. I have a simple two speaker set up in my living room but there is only one audio output jack on the TV and it is for an optical cable. So my less than one year old receiver which only uses analog cables just became obsolete. The remote is good with useful `Format' button. This button is important to quickly adjust the ratio as needed. I almost bought a less expensive Vizio from Walmart but learned that the `format' option is buried in the Menu and requires 7 steps to get in and out - not worth the aggravation. Lastly, the set does take a full 4-5 seconds to turn On. I am not sure if that is typical of all these modern flat TV's but it is with this one, not a big deal but worth mentioning.

FWIW, I bought this at Sears because my old set died and I needed something quick.

This product arrived on time and a nice guy delivered it and told me not to open it yet because it was a bit cold out and if you plug something like this in when it's cold, it could fry it. So I waited a few hours until I believed it had reached room temp. and set it up quite easily. The stand was easy to assemble as opposed to some of the Samsung reviews, which is why I didn't buy a Samsung. The ease of use was great and it has a very nice picture. The bad thing about it is that the sound has problems....it warbles and echoes and it is sporadic and will quit if you turn off the TV. So, in the first week I had it, I had to call Panasonic. The guy I spoke to told me that it must be my cable box because the speakers are so simple that they couldn't possibly be the problem. So, he told me to unplug my cable box for a while and then plug it back in. Well, that didn't fix it. A couple of weeks later I got a call from Panasonic saying that they had a record of my call and that indeed, there is a problem with the TV when connected via an HDMI cable and they were going to send me some firmware to fix the problem. Several weeks later they sent me two SD cards with the supposed fix. When I put the first card in, it could not read the file. So, I called them again and after waiting a half hour on hold, I finally got through to someone who said that the file didn't have what I needed and that they would send me another set of SD cards. That was yesterday....I bought the TV on April 29, 2010 and this is June 21, 2010. Needless to say, I probably won't be buying another Panasonic any time soon.

I purchased this set outside Amazon and decided to review it after giving myself two months to experience it.

The picture is almost comparable the Sony Bravia EX400. While comparing these two HDTVs in the store I was able to adjust the Panasonic to look as good as the Bravia. However, there were some minor graphic details missing from the Panasonic. For example a gray grid highlighting a baseball score on the Sony did not appear on the Panasonic TC-L37U22.

Remote is easy to use and well built. There are controls on the right side of the TV for menu/volume/channel/input. The buttons aren't lighted.

The progressive scan does an adequate job in displaying cable channels. It really shines on HD channels.

The sound from the built in speakers won't blow you away. For the best sound, it should be hooked into a home theater system.

Although the unit has an IPS panel (known for slower response times). While viewing regular sports I have yet to experience ghosting or blurring. Games might be a different story.

Overall, I am very pleased with this HDTV.

I've had the TV for 6 weeks and have no complaints so far. Picture was excellent right out of the box and a little cheat sheet Panasonic provides makes setup a no- brainer. I am on the east coast and received the TV 3 days after I ordered it.

Purchased this television a little over a week ago today. So far so good. Quick delivery like usual.

Opened it up, attached the base in about 5 minutes.

Plugged it into the wall

Easy to set up.

Great picture

Good sound quality, although lacking bass. But bass isn't an issue.

Hooked it up to my PS3. Amazing graphics. No ghost lag. But on COD black ops, there was some ghost lag.. Not too bad though..

Like the different viewing options like cinema, vibrant, ect.

Customizable settings is a plus too.

Overall great television for the price. Can't beat cheap brand name quality..

A+
