The Aquos LC-32GA4X is an all-in-one unit, with a detachable base and speakers which can be detached and used separately, depending on your requirements. The unit itself is a sleek black and silver of high-grade materials which don't look like the usual cheap plastic. In addition to using the LC-32GA4X on a TV stand, there is also a mounting kit available for attaching it to the wall.
The port configuration is horizontal on the right-hand side of the unit at the back and features easy access to the ports and cables. When wall-mounted, there is not too much space between the wall and the LCD unit, but most people should be able to get their hand behind it to add or remove cables. There is a power button on the top of the unit for easy access and all of the controls are well-positioned for use either as a stand-alone unit or as a wall-mount.
The included remote for the unit features a simple layout that is easy to understand and large buttons make using the remote even easier. An on-screen menu system featuring drop-down menus is equally as easy to navigate, with most features spelled out (just in case you aren't up with the latest acronyms).
The LC-32GA4X has a native resolution of 1366 x 768, with an 800:1 contrast and a brightness factor of 450 cd/m2. This compares favourably to other LCD panels in the same size and class and the unit features a pixel response time of 16ms. This is the time it takes for a pixel to switch from "inactive" to "active" and anything slower than 16ms produces the ghosting effect when there is a lot of action on screen.
