Product Description

Product Description

Panasonic's TCL37X2 is the perfect entertainment system: HDMI, HDTV, iPod connectivity, plus the Image Viewer give you access to all the media you can throw at it.

Amazon.com

Offering excellent picture performance, Panasonic's 37-inch VIERA TC-L37X2 LCD HDTV provides 720p high-definition imagery and includes a Universal Dock for Apple iPod, which enables you to control and play music and video directly from your iPod or iPhone through your VIERA HDTV. This X2 series model also features 24P Playback function for superb imagery from 24-frame movies on DVD and Blu-ray Disc, Game Mode for faster image response while playing immersive 3D games, a 20,000:1 contrast ratio, and 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 and other models in the X2 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.

 

Game Mode: With Game Mode, quicker image response increases the enjoyment of video games when a game console is connected to the TV. What's more, VIERA produces the dark images in video games more clearly. This mode works with the anti-image retention (wobbling) function, too.

 

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 X2 series LCD HDTV.

iPod Entertainment Kit: With the included Universal Dock for iPod, you can control playback of the music and video stored on your Apple iPod or iPhone directly through your VIERA HDTV via the remote control and intuitive onscreen menu system (see more about iPod/iPhone compatibility).

 

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

Needed a 37 inch for the bedroom, I have a 58 inch Panasonic plasma in my living room and the colors on it are amazing and I continue to be happy with it a year later.

I just received this television and am very happy with it for multiple reasons:
1. It's the perfect size for our guest bedroom (approx. 10x12). We tried a 42" plasma but it seemed to take up too much space on the dresser and dominated the room.
2. In my opinion, the picture is better than the plasma we tried (42" Samsung). Plasmas have darker blacks, but the colors just don't pop like they do on the LCD televisions we have (we also have a 52" Samsung LCD in the family room). FYI, we have a 42" Panasonic plasma in our bedroom which I like, so maybe Panasonic just makes a better TV in this price range. Who knows?
3. Set-up was incredibly easy. 8 screws to attach the base to the TV and you're done with that part. The TV leads you through a set-up procedure when you turn it on the first time: setting the language, date/time, selecting/naming input sources, etc.
4. The iPod/iPhone plug-in is a nice add-on. Basically, it's a free throw in and if nothing else, you can use it as a charger for your iPod/iPhone even if you don't want to play music with it.

I would go so far as to recommend this TV for a main television given the overall picture quality and ease of use. For the price, this one is going to be tough to beat.

This Panasonic is an excellent LCD TV. I was considering a 42 inch plasma, but my wife found a nice solid oak TV armoire for our new house. The TC-L37X2 was just the right size, so I went with it. The picture is crisp with great color. My only negative comment would be that the internal speakers are not very loud (they still sound pretty decent). I usually play audio through my surround system anyway, so it's not much of an issue. I would definitely recommend using an external sound system in conjunction with this TV. Overall, I'm very satisfied.

I was looking for an affordable TV for the bedroom and stumbled upon this model while surfing Amazon. All the research I did on flat panel TV's indicated that Panasonic is well respected in this arena. So after doing a little more research on this particular model and discovering that Amazon sold it for the lowest price I could find anywhere, I purchased this a week ago and I couldn't be happier.

This is a great TV for the price. I used component cables and the picture is fantastic. The iPod dock is awesome as well. Not only can you listen to the music stored on your iPod, you can also watch videos and movies stored on your iPod - bye, bye DVD player. Other reviews note poor sound quality, but it is not that bad. Sound for just watching the TV is fine, but if you are looking to crank up the tunes played through your iPod you will be disappointed because they are just average, little TV speakers. However, as a TV for my bedroom that only gets turned on in the morning for an hour or so it is a great set at a great price.

This was my first time buying a TV through Amazon so I was a little nervous. I selected Super Saver shipping and expected to receive it the following week, but it was delivered the day after it shipped from Amazon. I placed my order on Tuesday, it shipped Wednesday, and was delivered on Thursday. I am completely satisfied with Amazon's price, shipping, and the TV itself. So much that my next flat panel will be another Panasonic. If you are looking for a second TV you will not be disappointed with this model.

i have a 1 bedroom apartment and this 37 inch is perfect for it. Also I think Panasonic quality is at least equal
to Samsung. A 37 inch LCD tv is at the point where if you go to a 42, it will cost at least 150 to 200 dollars more for a panasonic or samsung. (best quality brands in my opinion) this TV has great sound, I like everything about this TV.

We shopped around a lot for a new bedroom TV in the 37" size range. After a lot of research, this TV got high marks from a lot of folks, so we checked it out by comparison shopping in a lot of stores before buying on line. We have three other Sony Bravia's and one smaller Vizio, all of which are great TV's, but this Panasonic is better than all of them. Picture clarity is superb as is the sound quality (this one also has an IPod dockling port.) Channel changing is very quick to respond, which was a big feature for us. We haven't found any negatives yet, and so far, overall performance has been excellent and what we expected.

Got this because I moved into a new apartment that already had a bracket on the wall for a flatscreen TV with a label that said, "No greater than 37 inches". So I looked for 37-inch models online and compared, and got this one because it was at a reasonable price and had the extra feature of the iPod/iPhone dock. Sometimes I'm driving home from work listening to podcasts and want to plug the iPhone in somewhere at the house to finish listening to it.

I use it mostly with an Apple TV via HDMI (another reason I got a 720p instead of a 1080p) and it looks great. I purchased a Sharp Sound Bar (HTSB500) separately and they work nicely together, but there's one little bug. I linked them with an optical cable (the only all-audio-out option in the TV) and every time the audio goes totally silent, like when I pause the Apple TV, or even when it goes from one song to another, the sound bar stops working for up to 6 seconds, which is rather annoying. I'm guessing the soundbar "turns itself off" when it detects no signal the awakes after hearing it, but the delay can be very annoying. It works fine as long as the audio stream is not interrupted though.

Not sure what else to say about the TV, other than it works great for me.
