ABOUT THIS TV

Panasonic TX-32LS480 400x400 Image Panasonic TX-32LS480

The TX-32LS480 is a 32 inch HD TV from Panasonic. It was launched in 2022. It features a True 8-bit IPS panel. The maximum resolution it can display is 1366 x 766 @ 60 Hz with a pixel density of 49 ppi.

Picture Quality

After screen size and resolution, the next important feature to look for in a display is its Color Reproduction Accuracy, which is defined by its color gamut specification.

Panasonic has not provided a color gamut specification for this TV. So we have to take a guess. This unit comes with an IPS panel. These panels are known to produce great colors out of the box. So we can assume that the sRGB coverage (equivalent) on this TV to be 70% or above. Although it may not produce super accurate colors, but for content consumption and gaming purposes, it is sufficient.

What Color Gamut means ?

Color gamut specification of a display indicates the range of colors that the display can show.

In other words, this specification indicates the ability of a display to produce accurate colors. A display with low color gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), thus producing a "washed out" picture.

It is specified in different units - sRGB(most popular), NTSC, DCI P3 to name a few.

But don't worry, below is a chart that you can use to choose a TV with good color accuracy.

Color Gamut Chart

Now, after color gamut, you should look at the static contrast specification as it impacts the picture quality the same way.

Why its important?

The static contrast ratio of a TV corresponds to its Black levels. A TV with low static contrast ratio (<1000:1) will not produce deep blacks. Also, such TVs are likely to suffer from backlight bleeds such as below:

This will affect your viewing experience considerably, especially in a dark room.

Also, a TV with high constrast ratio lets you to see more details. So, resolution and static contrast ratio go hand in hand.

If given a choice, I will prefer a FHD TV with high contrast ratio over a 4K TV with low contrast ratio.

There is no mention of this spec in the TV's official specsheet. So once again we have to make an assumption based on the TV's other specs. In general, IPS panels come with a static contrast ratio between 700:1 - 1500:1. For a TV launched in 2022, we can assume the ratio of Panasonic TX-32LS480 would be 1200:1 or above.

HDR10 and HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) are also supported on this TV.

Coming to brightness, it is capable of producing a peak brightness of 250 nits, which is powered by Edge LED backlight.

Gaming Performance

Now if you are going to use the TV other than using it as a TV — say as a PC monitor or Gaming, make sure to take a TV that features the lowest input lag. For gaming, both input lag and response time affects the performance.

Unfortunately, there is no specification for input lag on this TV. Now, IPS panels in general come with high input lags and response times. So, the input lag on this TV could be above 20ms. Though, Non-FPS and casual games should be playable.

What is Input Lag and Why it matters ?

This lag is the latency at which your key-presses/mouse movements changes the content of your TV. Though, this won't matter much if you aren't into competitive/FPS games like call of duty.

Although for better experience, look for a TV that features an input lag and response time of < 20ms.

Ergonomics and Dimensions

Coming to ergonomics — a VESA mount with interface size of 75 x 75 mm is provided for wall-mounting. However, there is no Swivel, Tilt or Pivot feature support in this TV.

The vertical and horizontal measurements of this TV are 28.82 inches and 18.86 inches respectively.

Speaking of thickness, it is 3 inches thick.

It weighs approximately 4.5 kilograms, another 1.0 kgs if you include stand. So plan your space accordingly.

Hardware and Audio

For display connectivity, Panasonic has provided three HDMI 1.4 (ARC) ports, one D-sub port and one AV Composite In (Video + L/R) port on this TV.

To connect USB devices, you will have one USB 2.0 (max 0.5 A) port. Other connectivity ports include — 1x Antenna (RF) (female), 1x Satellite In (Main — F-type female), 1x CI+ 1.4 and 1x Ethernet RJ45.

Regarding wireless connections on this TV, you will have — Wi-Fi (2.5Ghz only) and Bluetooth.

The Audio unit of this TV is powered by 2 x 6W speakers.

As for power usage, the TV consumes 51.2W on average and 0.5W on standby.

For powering this unit, you will need an 220 V - 240 V/50 Hz - 60 Hz outlet.
