Conclusion

The Panasonic TC-L37X2 ($649 MSRP) biggest flaw is that in the calibration process, you're forced to choose between great color performance at the cost of terrible contrast ratios, or passable contrast ratios at the cost of awful color performance. Calibration is always a trade-ff, of sorts, but no TV owner should be forced to choose between such distasteful extremes.

There are a few things we liked in the TC-L37X2. When the color performance is good, it's very good. It offers great viewing angle, and the iPod dock is an enjoyable add-on. Overall, though, we simply can't recommend this TV.
