Wow, this Panasonic turned out to be an all round winner. With twin tuners and great picture quality, you cannot go wrong with this model if you need a 32 inch LCD TV.

Two Tuners

For starters it comes with both Freesat and Freeview tuners built in. This is becoming more common and is a welcome development from manufacturers – it’s just one less thing to have to think about for people who don’t like extra boxes and cables!

Full HD – Great Picture

This is of course a full HD TV, which also has LED backlighting. The picture is top notch, being bright and detailed and a pleasure to watch. Movement is handled very well (100Hz motion processing), so action movie buffs and sports fans alike will be happy here.

And those images please from all sources too. Watching HD broadcasts on Freesat is a bit of a treat, and upscaled DVD and blu-ray are every bit as visually pleasing too.

Connections Aplenty

There’s plenty of connections around the back too, with 4 HDMI inputs, plus 2 RGB scart, 1 x component, 1 x s-video, 1 x composite, 2 x USB, memory card, phono audio in and out and digital audio out. Plus the remote is well laid out and easy to use.

Being a Panasonic the TX-L32D25B also includes Viera Cast capability which brings some convenient internet functionality to your TV (add-on dongle required). This now also allows for Skype, although we haven’t tried this yet as you also require an add-on Panasonic TY-CC10W Skype camera.

Sound Good?

Finally, the audio. Obviously built-in speakers can’t compete with a proper surround sound system but not everyone wants the hassle so it is annoying when manufacturers skimp on this area. Thankfully the Panasonics built-in speakers can manage some respectable sound. (As is usually the case, it sounds better with the fake surround mode turned off).

In Conclusion

The Panasonic D25 range are up at the top the heap. But the 32″ TX-L32D25B is one of the best TV’s you can buy in this lounge friendly size. If 32 inches is the size you need, this TV will not disappoint you.
