Panasonic TC-L37X2 LCD HDTV Review
The TC-L37X2 is a flawed entry-level LCD from Panasonic.
The Panasonic TC-P37X2 is a very cookie-cutter design, and would be hard to pick out in a line-up. The plastic used in the frame feels cheap and shows fingerprints easily. However, it has just enough curve to keep it from looking too boxy.
The Panasonic TC-P37X2 is a standard-looking TV with a high-gloss finish. Be aware that these types of finishes are finger-print magnets.
The back of the TV is a matte black plastic. All the ports here are gathered in one corner for easier access.
The Panasonic TC-P37X2 is not terribly skinny, as you can see in the photos below. However, plasmas simply can't get as thin as those newer "ultrathin" LED-lit LCDs. There's enough room for ports on one side, and onboard controls on the other.
The stand that attaches to the bottom of the Panasonic TC-P37X2 feels quite cheap, but the TV panel is light enough that it doesn't require much. The stand does not allow the TV panel to swivel, which is unfortunate. That can be a very useful feature for certain types of viewing situations.
The Panasonic TC-P37X2's onboard controls are located on the right side, towards the bottom.
The remote control that ships with the Panasonic TC-P37X2 is compact and lightweight. We like how well-labeled the buttons are, but the key travel (how far down you have to push the button) is too far and creates a sluggish interface.
In the Box
The Panasonic TC-P37X2 ships with the stand, remote control, batteries, assorted documentation, and iPod dock (with attached cable).
