Panasonic VIERA TC-L32C3 32-Inch LCD HDTV Review

Panasonic VIERA TC-L32C3 Television

The Panasonic VIERA TC-L32C3 is the perfect choice if you are looking for a low priced high definition television.  It doesn’t have as many of the features you may have come to expect from the higher-end models on the market, but you wouldn’t get them in this price range. The question here now, will this be the right television for you so read on and find out.

Key Specifications

Refresh Rate: 60 Hz

Panasonic Viera 32 Inch LCD HD TV Model TC-l32C3 – Review Best Price
Looking for a bargain on Panasonic´s tc-l32c3 32 inch lcd hd tv? this is the best selling and top rated deal on amazon.com with many customer reviews and the best price online

The Benefits

Price: This is the first thing you will notice about this television, the very reasonable price tag. This is one of the most affordable HD LCD televisions that you’re going to find on the market.

Ease Of Use: The Panasonic VIERA TC-L32C3 is  easy to use, which is very important on a television when you just want to relax and watch it without too much fuss. It’s very easy to set up, and when you’re using it the menus are labeled well enough for you to know just what you’re doing. This is good news because the manual makes things look perhaps more confusing than they really are.

Connections: Although the Panasonic VIERA TC-L32C3 doesn’t have the greatest number of connections for an HDTV, you wouldn’t expect it to at this price. That said, there are a very good number that will satisfy the needs of most users (though do check your own gadgets to see how they need to connect).

Two HDMI sockets mean that you can connect up modern DVD players and other accessories, and there’s a Scart plug for older equipment. It might have been nice to have at least two Scart inputs, so bear this in mind if you have more than one older piece of standard definition equipment.

Although there’s no USB port for connecting up your camera, there is a very useful SD card slot. This makes it easy to create photo slideshows or watch home movies on your new television.

Standard Definition: It’s important to find a television that can handle standard definition as well as HDTV, since so much content still hasn’t made it into HD. Although the Panasonic VIERA TC-L32C3 isn’t the best quality of all televisions, for the price standard definition really does look good and most buyers will be pleasantly surprised. In fact, the standard definition picture on this model is higher quality than you’ll find on many more expensive models.

Picture Quality: There are pros and cons to the picture quality on the Panasonic VIERA TC-L32C3 (see below). On the plus side, this TV handles motion well, has good viewing angles, and the picture is sharp despite a lower resolution than most other HDTVs currently available to buy.

Stand: This television comes with a pedestal stand in the box, which you can put together yourself.

Energy Consumption: When turned on, this television uses around 55 watts, which isn’t too high when compared to other TVs. In radio mode, when the screen is black, it’ll use about 35 watts. The good news is that there is an energy saving mode on the television, and it’ll turn itself onto standby mode if you leave it alone for a while. Unfortunately, though, it does consume a little bit of energy even when switched off.

Some of the Drawbacks

Sound: The inbuilt speakers aren’t the best you’ll find in an HDTV. You won’t hear much bass or detail when you’re watching movies.

The good news is that the TV comes with audio connections. You can either connect to a surround sound system, or other Hi-Fi unit. This is what most people tend to do with their flat panel televisions, rather than rely on the inbuilt speakers, so don’t let them put you off too much.

HD Quality: Unfortunately, the HD picture quality on the Panasonic VIERA TC-L32C3 isn’t fantastic. You’ll notice some motion blurriness and grainy pictures when watching this television.

Screen Size: There’s only one screen size option with this television, and that’s at 32 inches. This is probably too small for those who have a large living room. However, if you’re looking for a TV for a smaller space or bedroom then this is a good size.

Should You Buy This Television?

As you can see from the points above, there are many impressive features packed into the low price point of this Panasonic television. It’s certainly a viable option for those who don’t want to spend too much money on their television. If you’re after the best quality HD pictures, however, it may be worth looking at spending a little more money.

LG 42LK520 42-Inch LCD TV Review

The LG 42LK520 Television

LG 42LK520 42 inch 1080p LCD TV Black Lcd Tv Review Video

Benefits Of The LG 42LK520

Trumotion: This 42inch lcd tv includes “Trumotion” technology as a way of combatting the motion blur that you’ll find on many LCD HD screens. What this means is that it has a refresh rate of 120Hz. This is faster than many other televisions (60Hz is average), and means you should be able to view action scenes or fast camera shots with a clearer picture.

Image: While Trumotion creates a crisp image, other benefits of the picture on this television set include the fact that it looks bright, with true to life color reflection. There are a number of image controls included for those who want complete control over the way the picture looks.

Price: Although not necessarily the cheapest LCD HD TV you’ll find on the market, the LG 42LK520 is still very affordably priced.

Screen Size: There are a good range of screen sizes available for this television. The smallest, at 42 inches, may be a little big for some bedrooms but is a good base size for your living room. The bigger screens also look great and will provide an excellent at-home cinema experience. Remember to get the biggest screen that’ll comfortably fit into your living room, as most people find that their biggest regret is not going bigger with a flat screen TV!

Design: The design of the LG 42LK520 is simple but will look stylish in your living room. It features a simple glossy black screen with a small light in the corner when the television is switched on. It weighs around 35lbs, which is light enough to move around if you need to, and makes setting up the television easier for one person.

The fact that the LG 42LK520 has a matte screen means that it’s good for viewing in bright conditions, and you won’t have to put in as much effort to darken your living room as you would with a glossy screen.

Multimedia: The LG 42LK520 comes with one USB port, which makes it useful for connecting up to external devices. This is especially popular for use with digital cameras: many people present their photos as a slideshow on their HD television screen. Aside from the USB port, there are also more than enough HDMI inputs for all of your external devices.

Energy Usage: The LG 42LK520 features an energy saving mode that’ll automatically detect the light level in the room. When the light level changes, the brightness of the screen automatically adjusts itself to save energy.

Drawbacks Of The LG 42LK520

Stand: Most buyers have commented on the fact that the stand included with the LG 42LK520 doesn’t look very sturdy. It’s made from plastic and looks a little cheap, which is a shame when you want the TV to look as stylish as possible in your living room.

Sound: As with a number of flat panel televisions, the sound on the LG 42LK520 is not the best. This means you’ll want to connect some external speakers to truly achieve the best at-home cinema experience.

Remote: The remote control is nothing remarkable. Some buyers have commented that it looks a little cheap considering the price of the television. However, it does do its job well and is very easy to use.

Lack Of Extra Features: Although some of the more expensive options may have apps that allow you to connect to social networking or video streaming sites, the LG 42LK520 puts price over extra features. Consequently, there’s also no option for connecting this set up to the internet. This isn’t so much of a drawback, as it means you’ll save a lot of cash, and you can always connect up an extra multimedia box should you wish.

That said, you do get the benefit of a USB port with the LG 42LK520, which means you can hook it up to external devices to play MP3s or watch photo slideshows with friends or family.

Should You Buy The LG 42LK520?

All in all, the LG 42LK520 is a solid television for the price. There have been no complaints about the picture, and the lack of extra features is rarely an issue for shoppers looking for a TV in this price range.

5 Concerns When Buying a TV Online

Buying a Television Online

There are plenty of explanations why people prefer to buy TVs online. Apart from the indisputable fact that the most beneficial deals are normally found across the internet, there’s a greater choice of models available, the power to receive the TV straight to your door for a reasonable price, as well as the chance to do your research without the pressure of being inside a store. Allow me to share five things you should consider when you’re shopping for the new TV across the internet.

1) Read The Reviews

One of the benefits of buying online is that you’re not under pressure from a salesman. Instead, you can take it easy to read detailed reviews before you make your final decision. This is very important in case you have never seen the television before. You need to be sure that it works the way in which it is supposed to, understanding that it has all features you specifically want it to have.

2) Visit Stores Whenever possible

It may look like you are waisting your time visiting stores when you’re buying your television online, but it lets you have a feel for the television and how the picture is and how it sounds as well. You can’t see the Television on the website, except from what past customers have said in their reviews. Call into a store to check how the TV appears and come home again and look on the internet for the best price.

3) Pay Using a Charge card

A safe way to pay for anything across the internet is always to pay by credit card. This way you certainly will always have added protection from your credit card issuer should anything not work out with the transaction, such as television being damaged in transit.

4) Understand Your Warranty

You will find a few different elements in your warranty. You’ll often find the shop will cover you for a short time, after which it you’re covered for only a year or more from a manufacturer warranty so make sure if anything does not work out, to contact the shop you bought it from first. They must then point you by the right direction. It’s a good idea that  you check any online store’s terms when returning items – they could charge a fee for your shipping or restocking.

5) Buy from a reliable Source

Lastly, you should be careful where ever you buy your Television. There are plenty of legitimate sources to buy TVs online, but if you are in doubt do a quick look at the shop and see if you can find a number of  reviews left by happy customers .

Can You Buy 3D TVs Without Glasses?

3D TVs Without Glasses?

When it cоmes tо buying а nеw 3D television, thе firѕt question moѕt people aѕk iѕ whеthеr it’s posѕible tо purchase 3D TVs wіthout glasses. Here’s а guide tо thе situation aѕ it currеntly stands, аnd whаt yоu cаn expect frоm 3D technology іn thе future.

Why Are Glasses Necessary?

If you’ve donе аny research оn 3D TVs withоut glasses thеn you’ll knоw thаt current limitations meаn wе аll hаvе tо wear glasses if wе wаnt tо experience а 3D effect іn our homes. This iѕ dоwn tо thе fаct that, fоr 3D tо work, wе seе а diffеrеnt image іn eаch eye. The 3D glasses mаkе surе thе image lооks juѕt rіght. If yоu evеr remove thе glasses аnd takе а lооk аt thе screen, you’ll sее thiѕ juѕt doesn’t work!

There arе а numbеr оf downsides tо glasses: thеy arе expensive, thеy cаn bе uncomfortable, аnd thеy arе juѕt inconvenient. But moѕt оf uѕ put up wіth thеm fоr thе fаct thаt thеy lеt uѕ enjoy 3D.

3D Without Glasses As It Currently Stands

So far, 3D wіthоut glasses only rеаlly exists оn personal devices such aѕ smartphones оr portable games consoles. The reason fоr thіs iѕ thаt onе person views thе device аt а time, аnd thеrе iѕ alwаyѕ а specific viewing angle. With TVs, wе cаn view it frоm аll sorts оf angles аnd distances, meaning thіs juѕt wouldn’t wоrk іn thе samе wаy.

The gоod news iѕ thаt manufacturers havе alrеаdy started tо preview 3D TVs wіthоut glasses. In 2011, Sony, Toshiba аnd LG аll shоwed prototype models. But thеy аll hаd onе major downside, thаt thаt iѕ thе fаct thаt thе viewing angle iѕ extremely limited. You cаn only view thе television frоm arоund 15 degrees eаch sіde оf thе centre fоr thе 3D tо wоrk. Compare thіs tо 180 degree viewing angles оf current LCD TVs аnd you’ll sеe wherе thе prоblem lies.

The nеxt prоblem iѕ affordability. As yоu wіll hаve noticed, 3D TVs wіth glasses arе alrеady mоrе expensive thаn standard HD sets. Although no-glasses 3D wіll save money оn glasses, thе technology iѕ expected tо cost а lot mоre whеn originally released.

How The Future Looks – Is It Worth Waiting?

There’s nо doubt thаt 3D TVs wіthоut glasses wіll bе released іn future. However, it’s almоѕt cеrtаinly nоt worth putting оff buying yоur 3D TV nоw if yоu knоw yоu wаnt onе. Current 3D screens hаve а fаr bеttеr viewing angle, аnd wіll stіll bе cheaper thаn glasses-free 3D sets whеn thеy arе released.

3D Without Glasses? Yup.
3D TV without Glasses! From CES 2011, LG was showing off a really interesting glasses free 3D (try saying that 10 times fast) television. It´s a technology definitely in its infancy, but very neat to take a glimpse at the future. The All New TechnoBuffalo is Here!
