Review Product

Design: Almost completely encased in shiny black plastic, the Panasonic VIERA X1 TC-L26X1 is quite compact with rounded edges. While the LCD does have built-in speakers, these are relatively invisible from the front. Controls are placed on either side of the frame. Overall, this LCD TV has an understated feel and style to it.

Specifications: The Panasonic VIERA X1 TC-L26X1 comes with an external iPod dock that charges and plays the device when it is plugged in. The LCD TV offers the ability to control the iPod direct from the LCD TV’s remote control. With a 26-inch screen the LCD TV can play movies at 720p in resolution. Connection-wise the LCD TV offers three HDMI inputs (two on the back and one on the side). Other connections include an analog PC input, a single component-video input, an AV input with composite video and an RF input for cable or antenna. An optical digital audio output is also available to pass audio from the iPod to the home audio system. There is also another AV input with composite and S-Video on the side.

Features & Performance: The Panasonic VIERA X1 TC-L26X1 comes with the basic contrast and four global picture modes with a custom mode as well. The LCD TV offers an A.I. picture function that dynamically adjusts the back-light according to program content. Other functions include four ratio options with high-def sources and standard-def sources and a Zoom mode that allows adjustment of horizontal size and vertical position.

While the Panasonic VIERA X1 TC-L26X1 works with an iPhone, iPod Touch, iPod Nano 3G and an iPod Nano 4G the built-in TV speakers are not as good as expected but this isn’t an issue if you’ve already hooked up an external audio system. Video quality remains the same as that on the iPod itself. Overall, the Panasonic VIERA X1 TC-L26X1 is an interesting add-on to your home theater system, especially if you’ve been looking for an LCD HDTV that can play well with your beloved iPod device of choice.
