Panasonic TX-L37E30B review

Advanced networking is the trump card of this connected LED TV

Our Verdict

For

  • Comprehensive network media streaming support
  • Viera Connect IPTV and apps portal
  • Improved user interface
  • Good picture performance
  • Freeview HD tuner

Against

  • Motion artefacts caused by Intelligent Frame Creation processing
  • Ordinary sound
  • Black level not as deep as the competition

The TX-L37E30B puts LCD finally on a par with Panasonic's all-conquering plasmas. The LED-powered TV is positioned above a trio of HD ready models in 20 and 32-inch screen sizes and it has a lookalike 42-inch sibling.

It's far from a budget option at £850, but it offers advanced networking features and access to a new world of IPTV content, courtesy of Panasonic's new cloud-based Viera Connect service.

The TX-L37E30B may not have much truck with this year's other great obsession, 3D, but it is a handsome set. The finish is gunmetal grey, with clean sharp lines.

The topography of the back panel rather confuses depth measurements, bulging out to accommodate speakers at the base; at its deepest it's 75mm.

The IPS Alpha panel, which is known for its wide viewing angle and excellent light transmittance, is now further enhanced with a bright, energy-saving LED backlight. Images do not fade when viewed from an angle, and a uniformly high-speed response across the entire range ensures crisp moving images with minimal afterglow. The IPS Alpha LED LCD offers superb contrast and also contributes to the display's slim design.
