The Panasonic Viera TH-L32X24 is just like any other HD-ready LCD TV. It has all the regular features that a 32-inch LCD is expected to have and they’ve also thrown in an SD card reader. So let’s see what this TV is all about.
Not great looking, but not bad either
Design and Features
The TH-L32X24 is pretty easy to set up. There’s a metal bracket that fits into a slot under the TV, which needs to be screwed in. Once that’s done, the bottom of the bracket can be screwed on to the main base. Once completely set up, the TV is pretty stable, and barely wobbles about.
This TV is not lush with features like most current LCD TVs, although it does have enough to not be an also-ran. The design is pretty ordinary and it’s an LCD screen, so thickness comes with the territory. The right side panel of the TV has big, easily accessible menu buttons, but you won’t really need to use these as the remote is pretty easy to operate. The back of the TV has the usual connections – 3 HDMI inputs, component and composite video input, etc. What’s weird is the inclusion of the SD card slot (which only plays images) and the exclusion of a USB port.
Look at me, I've got an SD card slot!
The TH-L32X24 has a few other functions such as the Viera Link, which basically links your TV and other Panasonic Viera components so that these can be controlled by a single remote. There’s also another button called Viera Tools, which offers access to functions like photo slideshow from the SD card, speaker selection, etc. I feel all this is just extra jazz, and need not be messed around with.
