Features

Our new VIERA S1 Series LCDs HDTVs feature impressive improvements in picture quality, and are just right for gaming and enjoying your favorite hi-def TV shows.



Motion Focus Technology

Even fast-moving scenes are displayed sharply and clearly. With a 60Hz video signal input, 120Hz Motion Picture Pro 3 makes 120 frames/sec from 60 frames/sec. This increases the frame count to allow natural frame-to-frame transitions, for smooth motion images with high resolution. VIERA also uses motion focus technology that greatly enhances resolution.

Wide Viewing Angle

The wide 178 viewing angle ensures clear images even when viewed from an angle. The backlight's wide transmission aperture enhances the contrast between light and dark, and improves motion-image response.

* Measured at an angle where the contrast ratio is 10:1 or higher.



VIERA Image Viewer

It's easy to view full-HD images with the SD card slot. Watch and show your photos right after you take them. Simply insert an SD card into VIERA to display photos on the large screen.
You can also choose from among 3 types of background music and 4 display effects. It's much more fun when you can view them on a large-screen HDTV with family and friends in 1920 x 1080-pixel high definition and a wide 16:9 aspect ratio.



Fine Black Panel

Panel reflections have been reduced to half those of conventional panels, to sharpen images and reduce glare. This also helps to unify the panel design with that of the VIERA lineup.



VIERA Link

VIERA Link allows interconnected operation of various AV devices using only the VIERA remote control, by simply connecting the devices to each other by an HDMI cable.

* VIERA Link is a Panasonic Distinctive name for the function of HDAVI control. Not all VIERA Link features are useable with earlier VIERA Link compatible products.



VIERA Tools

With the new VIERA Tools user interface, simply press a button on the remote control and icons such as the photos or movies from the menu screen. Now you can just select the one you want. This kind of easy operation means you have more fun and less hassle.

* VIERA Tools screen design image is subject to change without notice.
** The screen display varies depending on the model.



Game Mode

In Game mode, quicker image response increases the enjoyment of video games when a game console is connected to the TV. What's more VIERA produces the dark images in video games more clearly. This mode works anti-image retention (wobbling) too.

Reviews

TC-L37S1 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from All I can say is, "Wow!" As the title suggests, I'm VERY happy with my purchase. I have had this TV for about a month now and I'm still amazed when I turn it on. I'm the sort of person that reads as many reviews as I can stand to (good and bad), check consumer reports online, read some more reviews, wait, go to check it out locally, and then FINALLY, pull the trigger and put down the plastic. In other words, I'm a pretty cautious buyer. I checked out 120 htz TVs as well. I just felt that this particular model was the best bang for the buck, Plus it is Consumer Reports recommended. Great TV, great buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly An Amazing TV I purchased this 37-inch LCD TV immediately after purchasing the 32-inch sister (TC-L32S1) and was completely blown away. The color and picture are excellent, and the viewing angle is more than impressive. Contrary to Consumer Reports' evaluation, I think the sound is above average. Some TV programs, such as Fox News broadcasts, almost appear 3-D. Set-up was very easy, although I had a problem integrating my 32-inch set with Time-Warner Cable's remote control and the picture came on without sound. A call to Panasonic helped resolve the problem when I was advised to switch the cable box HDMI connection from HDMI 1 to HDMI 2, and use the HDMI 1 input for my DVD player instead of HDMI 2. Much to the surprise of both me and the Panasonic tech rep on the phone, we also discovered that each HDMI input setting on these S1 LCD's is customizable for picture, audio, screen size settings, etc. Now everything works perfectly, and I love these sets. My only concern with these two purchases is that Panasonic seems to be downplaying the LCD S1 series on their website, which I can't understand since these are amazingly wonderful TVs. I would definitely recommend these to anyone who is seeking a great value for their money and their HD viewing enjoyment. Earlier today I ordered a Panasonic DMP-BD70 Blu-Ray Disc / VHS Player to complement my classic Panasonic DMR-E85H DVD Video Recorder and play my 250+ VHS tapes plus gain access to Blu-Ray Disc capability. This is exactly the kind of product I needed, but only stumbled on it by accident when I happened to find an article on C-Net reporting video highlights from the 2009 CES show, which included this model which uniquely combines low and high technology video capability. I can't wait to add this device to my new all-Panasonic multi-media system. Can a Panasonic home theater system be far behind?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compare and Buy Compare the picture quality and price to other TV's and then buy this TV. The picture quality is phenomenal! Straight of the box I had this up and running in about 10 minutes. Standard DVD's look outstanding. I tried out a video game and the set did a great job. The resolution, the Contrast, and the color are just beautiful. I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from High Quality I did a ton of research when looking at HD LCD's. One sales person provided the best input: "Panasonic makes great Plasma TV's. When they entered the LCD space, nobody knew what to expect...and then they took off!" Even last year's Consumer Reports ranked Panasonic LCD's (37 inch class) as top shelf." I took this advice and ran with it. I dumbed it down to simply look at picture quality first. Then, I considered options. This TV (Panasonic LCD S series 37") was a no-brainer. Great quality!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent computer monitor I wasn't aware until recently that Panasonic put the much-coveted IPS panels in their TVs. I frequent a computer enthusiast forum, and you can always find someone looking for a quality IPS monitor for professional graphics/photo work. Unfortunately, a quality 20" IPS monitor can easily run you more than the cost of this screen (especially if you're looking at the professional-grade screens), leading many to settle for either the cheap TN or the hazy MVA panels. So resigned to my fate was I that I was about to settle on an old MVA screen and call it good enough. Fortunately, mid-way through the check out process (online), I decided to give the selection one more look-over. Finding this screen literally the day it was released, I did some quick research (I had already read a good deal of praise for Panasonic's previous TVs) and placed my order. Now, having had it for roughly a week, I couldn't be more pleased. The picture quality is amazing, with consistent color and brightness, viewing angles worthy of the IPS name, and the lowest input lag (and low motion blur) that I've ever seen in an LCD. I wouldn't mind, however, some RGB sliders to further tweak the color. Before this model, the concept of purchasing a 37" IPS screen, with full HDTV tuning capability and tons of inputs to boot, at this price was laughable. With this now available, I can't imagine why you'd buy anything else (unless you were moving up the Panasonic line!). Get it, you won't regret it.
