Connectivity

Input Ports (5.5)

The Panasonic TC-L37X2 has enough ports to get you started with a decent home theater system. There are 3 HDMIs, which should cover most of your newer devices, along with 2 composite AV inputs for older devices. There's only 1 component AV input, though, so be aware of what you want to connect before you buy.

The ports are split into the back and side. The back houses most of the ports, including the connection for the iPod dock. The side is intended for inputs you want to swap quickly, including SD/SDHC cards.

Output Ports (1.0)

The Panasonic TC-L37X2 has just one output port, a digital audio out. There is no analog audio out, so those looking to connect the TV to older sound systems are out of luck.

Other Connections (0.0)

The Panasonic TC-L37X2 has no ethernet or WiFi connectivity, and doesn't support DLNA.

Media (4.0)

One of the Panasonic TC-L37X2's more prominent features is an included iPod dock, which plugs into the back of the TV via an attached cable. With it, you can watch videos and listen to music stored on your iPod. More details "later": in the review.

Placement

The ports on the Panasonic TC-L37X2 are well-positioned and easily identified thanks to good labels. Panasonic has never sacrificed clear labeling for style on its TVs.
