Tour & Design

{{article.attachments['section_summary_tour.jpg']}}
The Panasonic TC-37LZ85 has a simple design, with a glossy bezel, but we have to say we like the overall look of the HDTV.

**Front**

From the front the Panasonic TC-37LZ85 is, of course, dominated by its 37-inch LCD display. The bezel is a glossy black with nicely tapered edges. Below the display is the Panasonic logo, while the Viera logo sits above and to the left. At the bottom right is the power indicator and infrared receiver.

**Back**

The back of the Panasonic TC-37LZ85 is where you will find most of the televisions ports, grouped together towards the left.

**Left**

There are no features on the left side of the Panasonic TC-37LZ85.

**Right**

On the right side of the Panasonic TC-37LZ85 you will find the on-tv controls, a small grouping of ports and a door that opens to reveal an SD card slot.

**Stand/Mount**

The Panasonic TC-37LZ85's stand is glossy black and angled towards the front. It does not rotate. You can mount the Panasonic TC-37LZ85 on a wall, but will need a separate mounting bracket to do this.

**Controls**

On the right side you find the on-tv controls located just above the middle of the side. From top to bottom they are power, channel up and down, volume up and down, TV/Vido and Demo.

**Remote**

The Panasonic TC-37LZ85's remote is similar to Panasonic remotes we've seen in other reviews. It's relatively small and fits comfortably into your hand.

**In The Box***(4.0)*

The Panasonic TC-37LZ85 ships with a remote, batteries for the remote and a cleaning cloth. We're a bit dissapointed that there is no HDMI cord.

**Aesthetics***(6.0)*

The Panasonic TC-37LZ85 has simple and understated good looks. We like that there's a universal glossy finish on the bezel and stand from the front without any other textures to detract from it.
