I just received this set today, after weeks of web and in-store research. I had always thought that the Panasonic LCDs looked a bit better than the Sonys and Samsungs at the stores, and looked very much better off-axis (important in our room). Well, all I can say is they must not have had the set adjusted very well in the store.... it looks way better at home that it even did there!

I actually chose this set not only for what I had seen in the store (a little better picture, but not by a lot as I saw it there) but because I had read some reports on the net that the Panasonic IPS-Alpha screens generally do better on standard and analog TV than most other types. We have a lot of old VHS (such as home movies) and wanted a good quality set on which these would still be watchable. I'd say the old tapes look as good on this set as on the old CRT set, other than the expected results of the screen just being so much larger showing the lack of detail. A nice surprise, even analog over the air TV is completely watchable, no gritty lines or obnoxious blurs. On a whim, I connected my laptop to the TC-37LZ85 via the S-Video connector and brought up some old B&W shows on [...]. The ancient B&W Alfred Hitchcock shows look better in this set, through the low-res internet link, than they EVER did on analog TV.

We don't have a Blue-Ray player to see what the highest resolution video looks like, so I slipped in a SD-card with some high res (5MByte) photos on it. These are just drop-dead gorgeous. Couldn't stop watching the slide show, I had never seen these photos quite like this, wish I could print them as well as this screen shows them.

Verified Purchase
Bought it from Amazon and got it via CEVA in 5 days (could have been shorter as it was shipped from a warehouse just 500 miles from where I live :) I almost bought the 32LZ800 for almost the same price but decided to get this due to the matte screen, I dont like the glossy screens. Also I got a Panasonic due to the IPS panel instead of the PVA variants from most other vendors. Look at all the sets at a 45 deg angle before you decide :)

Razor sharp pictures through a PS3, SDTV is not bad (after reducing the sharpness etc), no VGA input, adequate sound (though could have been a little louder).

The factory default settings are not great but it can be tuned to display pleasing results. For a 2008 TV, I am unhappy that there isnt a separate RGB control. Another bummer is the lack of a VGA input: my older laptop doesnt have DVI/HDMI. Every 32-37" LCD I have seen has this input and I didnt check this before ordering :( With a VGA port and the RGB controls, I would have given it 5 stars.

Overall its a good purchase. If you need a no-frills panel, this is a good choice, given that it was the cheapest 37" TV from Amazon when I bought it.

Ok well this is my first review of anything here so off we go.... I purchased this TV a few weeks back and could not be happier. This is the first HD TV I have ever purchased so I did a lot of reading up on what is hit and miss. Big Hit! For a smaller living room, which we have it is perfect. I am hooked up to Suddenlink HD cable, getting Direct TV soon, a Panasonic up convert DVD player and my PS3. Amazing picture and a great value as well. I was on the fence at first but I tore that fence down and this TV is here to stay. Very user friendly, 3 HDMI inputs make connection a snap. Audio is typical for a TV but I have mine running through an Onkyo home theater receiver, so the marks are pretty good. I was really surprised how well SD channels looked; you know the difference but they looked just as good, even better that my old tube set. Watched "Night at the Museum" on Blu-ray and it was like the picture was so lifelike all my wife kept saying was "WOW" and I would have to agree. Also comes with a "game mode" which I love for the PS3 and "Call of Duty 4". I would recommend this TV to anyone wanting a great TV for a great value.

This tv is amazing quality for the money. I own another lcd hdtv (samsung 42incher) and the picture quality on this panasonic is quite impressive compared to that tv. For beginners, the panel is an ips panel which means the viewing angle is wide; you can see the screen clearly from the side. The finish of the screen is matte which is great for my room with lots of daylight.

The picture quality surpasses my samsung in many ways including blacks and color gamut--very impressed. In addition, i use this panasonic for gaming and as a pc monitor. Be sure to set the hdmi mode to 2 and use the 3rd hdmi input (gaming). This means the pixel ratio is 1:1 so the text is sharp and the graphics amazing. Playing crysis on this screen blew me away as did metal gear solid on ps3!

A few other things I like are the sdhc memory card input: we returned from a trip to africa with several gigs of pictures on sdhc, this tv was a great way to showcase the pics in high def to the family.

finally, the lack of tax, and white glove service of amazon saved me so much time and money I wish i had a reason to buy another.
