A basic TV that's let down by the lack of integrated iPlayer and some aspects of the panel...

There are some firsts here. This is the first Full HD, 1920 x 1080 screen we’ve tested that’s smaller than 32in; it’s the first 24in screen we’ve ever tested (though it’s unlikely to be the last); and when you calculate the...

The 42-inch Panasonic Viera TX-L42E3B is a good entry-level LED set that offers rich and engaging pictures, as well as decent audio. It suffers from some motion blur, though, and its interface isn't...

Panasonic has got more serious about LCD technology this year than ever before, having shifted over to edge LED lighting. But it's also introduced a couple of 42-inch models that have the potential to threaten its own plasma market, which also start...

Looking for a no-fuss flatscreen from a credible brand? This Panasonic Freeview HD LED looks the part - although you can find better spec'd performers for the...

Although the L42E3 looks on paper like it might be a quite compelling entry-level big-screen proposition, it’s ultimately left looking rather pointless by the existence for precious little extra money of its own higher spec sibling, the...

The Panasonic Viera TX-L32E3B delivers generally sharp, rich and engaging pictures, and its audio quality is a cut above that of most 32-inch LED TVs. It's disappointing, then, that it suffers from motion blur and lacks online...

The TX-L32E3 sits in the middle of five ranges of LCD screens for 2011. This means that, while it has an edge-LED backlight, a Full HD resolution, a Freeview HD tuner and, at £500, an enticing price, it doesn’t support 3D, unlike the...

The Panasonic TX-L32E3B is driven by price, rather than features or technology. In order to keep the cost down this entry-level 32-inch set eschews niceties such as 3D playback or Panasonic's Viera Connect online system, but has managed to hang onto...

32-Zoll-Fernseher sind beliebt und haben die ideale Bildschirmgröße bei rund zweieinhalb Meter Betrachtungsabstand. Der Panasonic TX-L32E3E überzeugt mit toller Bildqualität, einem großen Betrachtungswinkel und angenehmem Klang....
