Panasonic Viera TC-L37e3
A new 37 LED HDTV
Those who have already bought the new Panasonic Viera TC-L37e3 say they very much like this device, especially because it is eco-friendly. Other reasons: superb performance, good looks and many other qualities. Manufacturers claim that their newest creation is worth your money. Should you and we believe all of this? We tested the product and come to the following conclusion.
Full HD 1080p resolution
We’ll start this review by commenting on the Viera TC-L37e3’s appearance. It was love at first sight for us; the TV is black, sleek and stylish. Its measurements and weight are as follows: 35″ x 10.3″ x 23″ and 14kg. For our test we lifted it and moved it from room to room without difficulty. The stand was solid, so we recommend this device especially to families with small children.
The screen on this Panasonic TC-L37e3 is a 37″ LCD with full HD 1080p 1.920 x 1.080 pixels of resolution, Fine black panel filter, 480p EDTV display capability and much more. Looking at the display from different angles didn’t bring up annoyance: images kept their quality, even at the device’s maximum 178° viewing angle.
IPS Alpha LED LCD technology
The panel’s LED backlights sent the light to the center of the display, which resulted into saved energy and a thinner panel module; this was done via distribution of the light to the panel through diffusers and light guides. The colors looked beautiful, with plenty of detail.
The Viera TC-L37e3 comes with another important feature, namely a technology which is called IPS Alpha LED LCD. When we checked the TV for our review, this option improved the product’s energy-saving capabilities; it also improved the contrast, colors and brightness. And, since we mentioned contrast, the device we tested a couple of days ago delivered superb one; deep blacks were smoothly reduced, we experienced no fading and images were really sharp.
4 HDMI ports
Both the interface and multi-lingual menu (offering English, French and Spanish) were extremely easy to use, even by beginners, and they had no lags of any kind.
In terms of ports, inputs and the like, Panasonic’s Viera TC-L37e3 features 1 PC input, 4 HDMI, 1 Digital audio input, 1 Component, 1 Composite and 1 SD card slot. On the downside there was no built-in Wi-Fi; users have the option of buying an external adapter for that. The SD card slot made it easy to view pictures and videos we snapped, respectively shot with our camera directly on the TV’s screen.
Good response time
Playing games was very pleasant with TC-L37e3; we saw no motion blurs and were impressed at the speedy response we got. The Tools key sported by this product provided quick and direct access whenever we wanted to use the Internet for anything, including listening to our favorite music on YouTube and the like.
The team at Panasonic included in the TV’s box a user’s guide, remote control and operating instructions.
The Panasonic Viera TC-L37e3 is, to put it simply, a one-of-a-kind TV. After this review we can conclude that it has an attractive exterior, delivers great performance and fits in almost any room.
