Presentation of the Panasonic 32F204DX
A new model from Panasonic. They have just decided to enrich their range with a cheaper television , the 32F204DX.
First, the size : 32 inches on this device.
It is a small model. It will be more complicated for you to watch films or matches with all tour friends around.
Regarding technology, we are facing a model with a HD resolution. Interesting characteristics. This television which embarks all the Panasonic know-how is in the end at a rather reasonable price for the brand
You wish to buy it ? After reading our analysis, you will have all the elements to know if it is a good choice.
TV design presentation Panasonic 32F204DX
The first thing we always do is to analyze the design since it is the first thing that is obvious and also because it is important.
The design of the Panasonic 32F204DX is largely inspired by the other models in the F200 series.
Considering the price level the design is good. We perhaps would have liked something more accomplished, but it is, it must be remembered, an entry-level television set.
The 32F204DX is quite standard, flat.
With its glass surface of 32 inches, it has a typical piano black color.
As far as the base is concerned, there are also things to say. Indeed it has a double base, in which we have a division where each part of the base has its place. With this, the TV is exactly the same on both sides, thus creating a very symmetrical and stylish TV that can be enjoyed in any room.Ultimately, the Panasonic 32F204DX is a TV with a design that is simple and efficient.
32F204DX from Panasonic – The screen
The new Panasonic offers an image with disappointing contrasts. It has pale, dark and shallow colours. This translates into completely washed out blacks that do not allow you to enjoy a movie properly in the dark.
With this new model, Panasonic confirms one of its technological choices. It’s LED and that’s good because the image result is excellent.
This model has a HD display. And with his 32 inches, he’s in a series of TVs that is positioned in the range of small models.In the end, it is interesting to note that beyond the size, the screen is well made. A point to add when choosing between this model and other competitors.
By providing it with a frequency of 60 Hz, the fluidity of the images displayed on the television set is not exceptional. In some cases there may even be image shift problems. This also explains why it is placed in the entry-level of its range at Panasonic.
Finally, Panasonic has chosen to put advanced technology on this TV, which makes it possible to have an HD image quality .
Thus, the Panasonic 32F204DX allows you to have a device in another room (the kitchen for example), without too much affecting your budget.
TV sound presentation Panasonic 32F204DX
The speakers are of average quality and, therefore, the result does not work miracles on this point. Voices, for TV shows, are well reproduced; but for movie or game mode, you may have saturation and distortion in the sound.
For the sound part, the television set is equipped with two speakers for a sound power of 10 W.
In any case, the global power is at the same level as its competitors.
Maybe if you want to or if you are a perfectionist, you can connect two other speakers with a bass boost to amplify the result.
Finally, if we have to summarize the sound of the 32F204DX Panasonic, fair is the right word for it.
Presentation of the Smart TV part of the TV set Panasonic 32F204DX
To smart TV aficionados, keep moving on. This model does not have one. In case you can’t do without it, and this 32F204DX is your final choice, you will need to add a TV-Box next to it.
32F204DX from Panasonic – Its connectivity
Panasonic has ignored the number of ports and inputs available for this model. Probably a choice related to its entry-level positioning.
Thanks to its above-average number of connections, this TV is very generous.
This model has a total of 9 connections, not too bad. The Panasonic 32F204DX is probably the best choice today. Most homes are now equipped with a box, a game console, a multimedia server, and other devices, in addition to the simple DVD player.
You have the following connections at your disposal:
2 USB ports, 2 HDMI ports, 2 audio outputs, 1 antenna input, 1 component plug (Video), 1 composite plug (Y/Pb/Pr)
