These units are starting to show up, both online and in some stores.

I just wanted to let potential buyers of the 32 inch model to beware of the current Best Buy price. It is $50.00 over the MSRP listed on Panasonic's own website.

What i really want to know from panasonic is if they actually IPS-Alpha panel on the 42 inch TVs. In the European line up on their web site, they still list the 37 inch and below as Alpha panels. The LED tvs are listed as IPS only and not Alphas. I guess the rules here in the U.S. are so loose that they dont need to put it on the Spec sheet. I seems like if you want a IPS-Alpha panel in 42inch you gonna have to wait for that damn new factory to start working for next year models. They said the factory was gonna be operational by now. I guess not.

From the EU site: Panel TX-L42G20E/ES : IPS LCD Panel, TX-L37G20E/ES and TX-L32G20E/ES : IPS-alpha LCD Panel .

See how they have to list them as alphas.

As far as I am aware, Panasonic only manufactures IPS-Alpha panels. They sold a 42 inch model in 2009, through Best Buy national chain.

If you want to confirm, for certain, why not just call Panasonic and ask them.

I bought the 37u22 model, did some testing which you can see over on the input lag thread. It ended up having around 40ms lag, which coupled with the lower than usual price means that it is probably not an ips-alpha panel.

Still not evidence that it is not Panasonic's own IPS-Alpha product. When you register it with them, why not ask them if it is, or not.

On a different note. What are your impressions for the incoming LED TVs that Panny is putting out? A more rhetorical question, but I'll ask anyways. You think a worthy upgrade from the TC-L37G1 (2009 line-up). Ever since seeing all the other LEDs on display I'm just awed buy them. But my TV is not even a year old. I'm a technology whore :P

I cannot find a definitive answer. Is the TC-L37U22 120Hz or 60Hz refresh rate? i see if supports 24p format - does that mean it is 120Hz or not?

It is 60hz.

I guess you infer that from this:

24p Playback(2:3) Yes

There is not mention of 60 hz refresh rate otherwise.

So I guess they are doing 2:3 pulldown.

I was kinda upset at first when I saw they no longer make a 37" with motion processing. However the 2010 TC-L42U25 42" they have that does use it is already lower in price than last yr's 37". It has Motion Pro 4 too.

I have to admit though, the low street price so soon has me skeptical about the panels used too, esp since it doesn't say Alpha IPS in the Panny site specs.

Gonna wait and see if it has a nice picture in store. I was thinking I need to go no bigger than 37" because it's for multi purpose and I can only sit about 5' from it even if I put it on a stand behind my desk, but after seeing Avatar in Blu-ray on the 46" DLP a friend just got, I'm tempted to go bigger.

getting a 42" guarantees you its not an IPS-Alpha because they only make 32" 1080p and 720p panels and a 1080p 37" panel. thats it

If you're a gamer or interested in using an LCD TV as a primary monitor take a look at my thread on Input Lag

soooooo . . . anyone bought a 42" recently and dissected it to check the manufacturer yet? i saw on the IPS alpha site that the plant was up and running in April with panels supposed to ship out in May and (long story short) I think we should be seeing those panels enter the channels before the 2011 models
