• Surprisingly well made
  • The IPS Alpha panel is a bonus
  • Very even backlighting
  • Generally good image quality


  • No Viera Connect
  • No USB inputs
  • Dynamic backlight creates instability
  • Evidence of motion blur

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 edge LED backlighting and sports an IPS Alpha panel.
