Impressive HDTV / Monitor
Overall, this is one very impressive unit. Not fair to compare it to the output & features of my plasma display. This has 2 HDMI (one with audio return) and 1 USB inputs, not a smart TV - but perfect for my purpose. If you want the smart & network connected features, all you have to do is connect a inexpensive networked blu ray player and you are there. My Panasonic plasma has never seen a network cable, the blu ray player provides all the Viera features.
Great tv for the price
We were very reluctant to buy this tv as there was only one review with not the best rating.We have had other panasonic products with good results so decided to give it a try from a retail store so we could take it right back if we didn't like it.The picture is excellent-I Changed a couple of the settings to my likeing & its just as clear as our more expensive larger screen.
LCD panel at a low price point
The TC-L32C5 is a 32" CCFL (fluorescent) back lit LCD television that is aimed at putting a 720p LCD panel at a low price point. The U5 series is only available in the 32" size and it features a 60Hz, 720p panel. It does not have 3D or any online features so it comes in at a budget price.
Budget priced flat screen that comes from a credible maker.
One of the biggest benefits of choosing the Panasonic L32C5 is perhaps the price. At about $320 you get budget priced flat screen that comes from a credible maker. It does well in terms of general viewing and other media performances. Another upside of this TV is the gaming benefits. If you're one to use your TV along with a gaming console then this is a good buy.
Great tv for the Price!
Sears had the best price for this size tv after I checked around. I was impressed with the service I got there as well. Panasonic is a quality name and is tops for trouble free manufacturers for tv's, and this one has a great picture for my needs. Since I got an HDTV cable box the image is crystal clear. I also think the sound quality is great. It's not a fancy tv with LED or 120MHz, or wifi capabilty, but those tv's cost a lot more. But for a non-LED this screen is thin.
Fairly wide, glosst black bezel with some metal and acryllic accents
The TC-L42U5 is a 42" CCFL (fluorescent) back lit LCD television that is aimed at putting a 1080p LCD panel at a low price point. The U5 series is only available in the 42" size and it features a 60Hz, 1080p panel. It does not have 3D or any online features so it comes in at a budget price.
A narrow total viewing angle
The U5 is, hands down, a very bad value.
We've seen some amazing budget TVs this year. Panasonic's U50 and XT50 series comes to mind. Both are under $1000, and both are 50 inches.
By that logic, the 42-inch Panasonic U5 should be performing much better than it is with an MSRP of $599.
Built to conserve energy, which will help you save money.
With 3 HDMI slots, 1 USB and a PC input, you will be able to do many things with this TV. It gives you one of the best-looking pictures on the market with 1080p for the price of 720p. You can enjoy any type of program the way it is supposed to be viewed. If you want a TV for a reasonable price that will perform better than most, the Panasonic Viera tc-L42U5 is one of the best choices.
Really great tv. Perfect size for my office/studio. Picture quality is excellent. I calibrated the tv using settings I found with a quick google search. Sound is ok, but as with most flat screens it lacks a really impressive on board audio set up. Xbox 360 games look incredible. I've been playing Skyrim and Battlefield 3 and am blown away by the picture. I fired up amazon prime (through Viera Cast) and watched Troll Hunter in HD.
Better black levels and Contrast
The E5 series is a mid-tier line of LED back lit LCD televisions from Panasonic for 2012. It is another line that shows Panasonic's commitment to larger and more feature rich LED TVs going forward. The TC-L37E5 has a 60Hz 1080p panel that uses Panasonic's 180 Back Lack Scanning for increased motion smoothing and it has access to Viera Cast, Panasonic's Smart TV online feature.
A fair performer and a fair to good value for the price
A fair performer and a fair to good value for the price.
As of June 2012 Panasonic doesn't even list this model, or any 24", on it's web site anymore even though it's a 2012 model. The move is to larger models (e.g, 32"). So if you want the smaller 24" size, you might want to shop around for price and buy now before these become as scarce as CRTs. This is a decent TV. Not a lot of settings but more than enough for most folks and the defaults will probably serve most folks well.
