I'm buying a LCD this week and very interested in the TX-32LXD600A. I went to a couple of retailers in Perth but no one can tell me when this model will be available.

Is this model delayed?

This model just came out here in Sydney yesterday - I've been waiting almost a month for it.

Went and had a look at Bing Lee and was amazed at the picture quality.

I was trying to compare it with the new Sony V series, they both had an excellent picture.

From what I saw, the Panasonic IPS Alpha Technology looked a step ahead of the S-PVA from Sony.

I played around with the settings on both tv's, and the IPS was sharper, clearer and much smoother, where as the S-PVA had a bit of blur. Colour was good on both.

The LXD600 also has 2xHDMI ports vs the 1xHDMI port from the V2000.

Not many people on this forum seem to be interested in this TV.

I'll be purchasing one when I get paid later this week, and post a review.

Both TV's are Made In Japan.

Since learning the upcomming Full HD Samsung 40 inchers wont have a built in Hi Def tuner, im looking at buying a 32incher before taking the big step of getting a 40+ Full HD HDMI 1.3 TV next year.

Can you tell us how many component inputs this TV has? & Whats the best price for this set?

I just put down a $1000 deposit on the 32" TX-32LXD600A. Got it for $2300, I hope this is a good price. Bought it from Retravision Mirrabooka (Perth).

There's no stock in Perth, they told me stock will arrive Fremantle later this week and clear customs by next week. Hopefully I'll receive it by late next week.

I'll update once received.

Ill go hunting on Wednesday to see this LCD.

Hope my close stores have stock or a display.

If you're on the east coast, DSE PowerHouse has them in stock. Their ticket price of $2400 is pretty good and I'm sure you do better with a bit of haggling.

Thanks for that.

Reading the specs on DSE it looks to only have 1 component input. I need a minimum of 2.

Dammit, I wanted this TV :blink:

Hmmm...I've called over a dozen local retailers before making my purchase and no one was willing to go that low...may I know the branch and the person you spoken to?

Good Guys Auburn.

I went today to buy the set, seems a new guy started there and got the prices mixed up with the older models.

$2450 - No Deal :blink:

Got it at Bing Lee for $2300. That's the best price you're likely to get.

This is simply the best looking LCD on the market.

Well done Panasonic.

I can't fault this TV.

Bankstown. But you can go to any Bing Lee and quote that price. They can't do it for any lower.

I can! Set mine up today -- fantastic picture quality but tuner is not as good as my Toppy 5000 -- the tuner is a total waste of money from my perspective :blink:

THammer could please elaborate a bit more. I'm considering a 26" for my bedroom and would use both digital and analogue tuner, I live in a good area for signal strength. Was going to recommend the 32" to my dad, again would use digital and analogue tuners but lives in a lower signal strength area.

What sort of problems is in-built showing ?

Picture break up ?

Not sensitive enough ?

Thanks.

Not sensitive enough for my low signal strength area. The Toppy is rock solid whilst the Panny breaks up about once a minute. I was considering the 26 inch for the bedroom but will wait a year or 2 -- by then cheap built-in digital receivers should be able to cut it in my situation.

Not good.

Thanks for the info.

I just got my 32" 600A yesterday. Here are my thoughts:

Likes

1. Compared to the new Sony V, the 600A IPS panel has better colour and viewing angle. Images are clean and sharp.

2. Very good build quality, one of the few panels that are actually made in Japan. The TV itself is also made in Japan.

3. The speakers put out excellent sound, the fullness of bass is great. I was blown away when I first heard them.

4. I live in a semi rural area an hour north of Perth. The built in tuner is good, all channel is max strength except for ch10.

5. The SD card slot is convenient. It's also an MPEG-4 video recorder/player and can rotate pics and display them as slideshow.

Dislikes

1. The bottom bezel is quite wide so it's not as sexy as some other LCDs. Perhaps this is due to the subwoofer or SD card slot.

Overall, I'm very happy with my $2300 purchase :blink::D:P

Is it like the 500A, which bizarrely stretched all non-16:9 material viewed via the card slot? That "feature" made the card slot on the 500A pretty much useless for viewing photos, and its MP4 decoding was decidedly on the average side as well...

The 500A could NOT actually record MP4, though some thought that it could. I doubt this has changed on the 600A, though it'd be a nice feature if it could, and did it well.

The only thing that concerns me is the possible 'Made In China' tag.

From the same joint factory of Panasonic and Toshiba. Toshiba offer a 5 year warranty on their lcds, maybe that's enough comfort in regards to the panel quality.

The new IPS panel is the best going around, the blacks stay accurate on all angles. I know most brands claim this, but Panasonic actually does.

Thanks for that.

Dammit, I wanted this TV :blink:

Yeah, but inbuilt HD tuner, and dual HDMI sockets. Get a HDMI DVD (or BD) and that should be ok. Otherwise the Sony (same RRP) has dual Component and HD tuner. Less features though. (no SD card or IPS panel - I think Samsungs reign as best LCD panel is over)

The panel IS Chinese - the joint factory between Panasonic, Toshiba & Hitachi. I don't think it matters. This has been confirmed by many Panasonic employees.

BTW, Sharp is the only Japanese LCD left.

Korea - LG & Philips

Korea - Samsung & Sony

China - Panasonic, Toshiba, Hitachi

Japan - Sharp

Anyone know,is that it or are there other factorys? I know they are attempting to create a mega silicon valley for lcd in a region of China, my guess is Sharp will be their soon.

No name lcds usally come from either Korean factory.

It's not like the 500A, my pics are in 3:2 aspect ratio and they have black bars on the side when displayed on the 600A. Hence my pics are not stretched, they look clean and sharp.

The 500A could NOT actually record MP4, though some thought that it could.

It actually can record/play MPEG-4 videos although the recorded (set on "Extra Fine") video quality is quite poor when compared to HDTV/DVDs. I've verified the video file via my PC and it's indeed MPEG-4. I don't think the SD card recording is supposed to replace a PVR.
