The 2010 X2 series of LCDs from Panasonic represents a budget line of 3 TVs with a 720p/60Hz panel and traditional CFL backlighting. The X2 series of LCDs can double as a PC monitor thanks to the dedicated PC input but using a large screen with a lower resolution isn't ideal as a PC monitor. The TC-L32X2 can also play back music or video from your iPhone or iPod with the included Universal iPod Dock.
Viera Image Viewer lets consumers create an instant slideshow on the IPS panel using JPEG images saved on an SD memory card. Viera Link provides communication and integration with other Viera Link devices by communicating over the 3 included HDMI inputs.

IPS. This technology ensures that your TV's display looks equally great
from nearly any angle. This LCD model has a full 178° viewing angle, so
no matter where you're at in the room, you can see what's on-screen
without putting a kink in your neck.
VIERA Link makes operation simple
And speaking of convenience, how about Panasonic's VIERA Link?
You can operate (through HDMI connections) all your home theater
components by pressing one button on the TV remote. An HDMI cable
carries not only digital video and audio signals, but control signals
too. For example, use your VIERA remote to control a recording operation
with your DVD recorder or to start and stop playback of scenes from a
