Panasonic TC-L32XM6 Review (TCL32XM6)
32" 720p 60Hz LED TV
by Jack Burden, Reviewer
The TC-L32XM6 is a direct replacement of the TC-L32X5 from last year. This is a bare bones 720p set that is perfect for a guest room, office, or kid's room. All of the features of top and mid tier models have been stripped to make the budget set of the 2013/14 lineup. It is the only option in the XM6 series, so it is targeted to a very specific section of the TV market. It's got a 60Hz 720p panel that will be just fine for light television watching. There is nothing here to blow anyone away, but that's exactly where this TV is supposed to be.
None of the advanced picture quality features are offered on the TC-L32XM6. It is about as basic as it gets. The 720p spec may seem like a bad quality in a sea of 1080p televisions, but the picture is really not so bad. In fact, most broadcast and cable programming comes into your house at 720p or 1080i. In reality the XM6 is going to be used at its full potential rather than down scaling most of the programming you watch on a 1080p set. On the flip side, as a computer monitor it is not going to work so well.
The TCL32XM6 gets the slim design so the overall depth of the set is going to be very low. This gives an updated appearance to a budget set such as this. The glossy black bezel is not super thin but not overly large. It's a basic TV with an economical look that doesn't disappoint.
