More Than Just a TVâWeb Browsing and PC Gaming The PC inputs on our LCD projection TVs make them ideal for use as large multimedia monitors. Connect a PC and experience web surfing, gaming, and even DVD playback using a large, crisp, high-resolution display. View Digital Programming Without A Cable Box Panasonic HDTVs with CableCARD slots can accept a small card that allows you to receive standard definition and high definition digital broadcastsâno bulky set-top cable box. Contact your cable company to find out if they offer this service in your area. Receive Over-The-Air HDTV Broadcasts Sports, movies, and original network programming are all available in high definition from many local broadcasters. Receive and view local over-the-air broadcasts on this plasma instunning HDTV clarity using the built-in HDTV tuner1. If your cable company passes through HDTV broadcasts from local broadcasters, you can decode and tune those as well. A Single Cable Carries High-Quality Digital Audio and Video If you have even a moderately complicated home theater setup, you probably have a pile of tangled cables on the floor behind it. Imagine replacing all those cables with a single cable that carries both digital video and audio at the same time. With the new HDMI standard, that’s exactly what you get. The HDMI connector on this TV accepts high-quality digital video and audio via the same thin cable, allowing you to run one cable from the source to the TV. Share Digital Photos On the Big Screen with Photo Viewer The best images you can ever view on a Panasonic plasma don’t have anything to do with HDTV. Share your JPEG photos taken with a Lumix® digital camera on a Panasonic plasma using the built-in SD card slot2. Simply insert the SD card, which is about the size of a postage stamp, into the SD slot on the TV and enjoy a photo slideshow. A Cinema-Style Viewing Experience A Prepare yourself for perfectly flat big-screen excitement with Panasonic’s PT-52LCX65 high-definition television. The 52-inch, liquid-crystal projection set offers a native resolution of 1,280 x 720 and a built-in ATSC (DTV) tuner so you’ll be set to receive free HD broadcasts right out of the box. More pixels translate into less stair-stepping artifacts, so curved and diagonal image edges look smooth and natural.

The set offers a total of 12 separate inputs, including 3 component-video inputs, an HDMI digital video input for a direct-digital connection with a DTV set-top box, and a front-panel PC input capable of VGA, SVGA, or compressed XGA resolution. A handy flash-memory slot is perfect for viewing digital slide shows of your favorite photos right off your digital camera (accepts 8 MB to 1 GB SD Cards).

A built-in CableCARD slot lets you receive standard-definition and high-definition digital broadcasts via a small card–no bulky set-top cable box required. (Contact your cable company to find out if they offer this service.)

The PT-52LCX65 is considerably less bulky than most rear-projection televisions and consumes less energy. Further, LCD displays don’t suffer from misconvergence or flicker, like their CRT counterparts. The Panasonic multimedia display incorporates thin-film transistor (TFT) technology, also known as active matrix, to improve color reproduction, eliminate ghosting, and boost response speed.

The model’s motion-adaptive 3D Y/C comb filter enhances resolution by removing blurred edges between colors and reducing dot crawl (tiny, moving dots of color along a sharp color separation in a vertical line, as in a depiction of a character’s striped T-shirt).

Many TVs force you to cycle through every video input in sequence when you want to change inputs. This can result in pushing the “video” button 5 or 6 times before you reach your desired source. The PT-52LCX65 lets you select video inputs directly so you can jump right to the input you need.

The set’s 100-watt HID (High Intensity Discharge) lamp is easily replaceable, extending the life of the set well beyond the life of a single lamp. The TV’s 2-way stereo speakers are powered by 15 watts per channel, and BBE ViVA HD3D Sound makes sure every program sounds its fullest and liveliest.

HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is a lossless, uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface to link the set with any audio/video source (such as a set-top box, DVD player, or AV receiver). HDMI supports standard-definition (SD), enhanced definition (ED), or high-definition (HD) video, plus multi-channel digital audio–all using a single cable. It transmits all ATSC HDTV standards and supports up to 8-channel digital audio, with bandwidth to spare to accommodate future enhancements and requirements.

    Best choice for cost overall!, December 4, 2006
    J. Travis (Anchorage, AK USA) –

    This review is from: Panasonic PT-52LCX65 52-Inch Widescreen HD-Ready LCD Projection TV (Electronics)

    I purchased my TV from Costco for [...] a few weeks ago.

    I spent extensive time researching the different types of flat screen tvs and the pros and cons of each.

    Currently, I feel the rear projection televisions are the best for the cost.

    Here is a brief explanation why:
    1. Near impossible to get burn in. You can, but you almost have to try to make it happen. I have only read of one review where the fella actually ran his at 4:3 constantly. Of course you are going to get some type of burn in on the left and right hand sides of the picture.
    2. Picture quality is very good. I have noticed that the plasma is a bit crisper, but in all seriousness, you can’t really notice a considerable difference unless you are viewing the new dvds.
    3. Cost Cost Cost. The 42″ plasma panasonic is the same exact price, and has roughly half the lifetime if treated correctly.
    4. HDMI/SD. This TV doesn’t have the common glitch that a lot of the sony and samsong sets do when trying to switch from an incoming HDMI connection to any other type. I am free to swap between my HDMI dvd player, to my playstation 3, and then to my standard Digital Cable connection. This was the main deal breaker between this and the Samsong rear projection television.

    As far as cons go, I can only find the usual in all flat screen televisions.
    1. Viewing closer than 3 feet is not good. And at hard angles, for example, lying flat on the floor, can be a bit harsh.

    Since it has been in my home, I have placed it on a corner in the living room and can view it without a problem within the full 90 degrees of the room without noticing any distortion. No signs of burn in and it still runs flawlessly.

    I would recommend this television, or any of the other same style panasonic rear projection LCD televisions.

    If you are looking for the standard flat without the deeper back I would recommend going towards the Panasonic plasma televisions. I checked the 42″ model out extensively and found it to be superb in view and style, as well as input switching.

    Panasonic stands by this product!, January 17, 2009
    Heather E. Risdon (South Elgin, IL United States) –

    This review is from: Panasonic PT-52LCX65 52-Inch Widescreen HD-Ready LCD Projection TV (Electronics)

    I really love all the features on this tv… but what I really wanted to share is that Panasonic gave us superb customer service with this unit! We purchased this tv in Nov. of 2005. About two years ago we noticed a green spot about the size of a baseball on the tv that never went away. After awhile the spots started to multiply (6 green spots and 2 blue spots as of Jan 09). I finally had enough and called Panasonic and they fixed it for free! Sent a tech to my home and extended the warranty to cover the problem! They said that they reprogrammed an eprom–but whatever, go Panasonic!
