If you'd rather your TV focused on showing pictures rather than trying to woo you with 3D thingamajiggery and smart TV shenanigans, then the Panasonic TX-L32X5B will appeal. It's a back-to-basics 32-inch TV that eschews fancy extras for an affordable £350 price tag.It's not completely lacking in bells and whistles, as it does have digital media playback features, LED backlighting and support for Freeview HD. So is it a worthwhile option if you're on a tight budget, or if you don't need all the added extras of today's mid and high-end sets? Let's find out. While other manufacturers have been forging ahead with flashy menu systems and dynamic-looking electronic programme guides (EPG), Panasonic's design team is stuck in neutral. The menus on this model barely differ from those that appeared on last year's TVs. Considering they weren't exactly cutting edge, what you get here now looks very, very dated. The menus lack the neat graphical touches that are the hallmark of current TVs from LG and Samsung. Nevertheless, they are at least pretty easy to find your way around and most of the entries in the menus are self-explanatory.
If neither smart TV, 3D nor even Full HD are on your radar, then this 32-inch LCD TV from Panasonic's X5 Series could be just what you're after. Those super-slim, app-packed flagship TVs from the major brands may come with the latest picture and interaction tech, but for the average living room most are massive overkill. Step forward the excellent quality Panasonic TX-L32X5, whose three-pronged assault on the mass market is likely to sell in droves; LED backlighting, a Freeview HD tuner and some rudimentary handling of digital files should make sure of that. Design-wise it doesn't break the mould (though its gloss black screen surround and 53mm depth aren't too shabby), and nor are we expecting cutting-edge images from its basic 50Hz panel, though the latter is of the IPS Alpha variety, whose forbears have impressed us numerous times before. Could this be the everyman TV we've been waiting for? Separate from Panasonic's vast range of LED and plasma-flavoured Smart Viera TVs, the Panasonic TX-L32X5 - priced at around 450 in the UK or $400 in the US - is part of the Japanese brand's X5 Series, which also includes the 19-inch Panasonic TX-L19X5 and 24-inch Panasonic TX-L24X5.Buying GuideBest TV 2012However, the X5 Series isn't Panasonic's cheapest – that honour goes to its C5 Series, which is comprised only of the 32-inch Panasonic TX-L32C5.
