  • For those who can afford it, the Panasonic TC-PZT60 comes closer than any TV yet to picture-quality perfection.


  • At this point, I've said a lot about this TV; however, the only thing that needs to be said is that it's the best. Is it leagues and leagues better than anything else you could buy? No - but neither is it leagues more expensive. Sure, the 65-inch model is demanding four thousand of your hard-earned greenbacks, but any home theater enthusiast would be lucky to own this grade-A plasma.

    The bottom of the line is that the ZT60's price-to-performance ratio is higher than average.


  • Finally, let's address the question of which is better: ZT60 or VT60? To answer, let's look at the three key differences between the two. The ZT60 does better in rooms affected by sunlight, while the VT60 has superior sound and comes with a camera for Skype and facial recognition. Which is better for you will depend on your priorities, but for us, the ZT60 is worth the extra $500 or so.


  • The midlevel price and outstanding quality of the Panasonic TC-PST60 series make it our strongest TV recommendation ever.


  • The TC-P50ST60 is one of the best value TVs for this year. At $1100 it will be a great seller and the price may get a bit better before the year is over. It's got good 3D, great blacks, a simple but effective remote control, ample Smart TV features, and pretty good looks. Samsung PN51F5500 is one competitor, though I prefer the ST60. The Samsung UN50F6400 is an LED competitor.


  • All in all, I found the new look to strike a good balance, offering more options on the screen (so less navigation is required), but presenting everything a clean, logical way.


  • The Panasonic VT60 has one of the best pictures of any TV we've ever reviewed, but it's soon to face some tough competition.


  • Here is where quality and price converge and man, these top end plasmas are up there this year in price. The TC-P65VT60 is around $3399 - no bargain basement TV and $1000 more than the 55 inch version. Yes, it has best in the market black levels that rival the best ever. In a dark home theater type environment the picture quality is astounding.


  • Charging the right price for a very good picture, Panasonic's E60 LED LCD is one of the best values available among midrange TVs.

    The TC-L50E60 fits nicely into the E60 series. This 50 inch 1080p TV is a good candidate for those not interested in 3D playback. It's got a native 120Hz panel, so sports and fast action aren't going to be a problem. The Viera Connect suite is present with built in wifi. This solves any problems when it come to getting content on your TV. This TV gives a lot of bang for the buck.


  • Not everyone can afford a company's top-of-the-line flagship model, so it's nice that Panasonic offers the E60 series, with its wide array of big displays. If you have giant TVs on the brain, but your billfold needs a break, the 50-inch E60 (MSRP $1149.99) can be found online for $1,000. Picture quality like this doesn't exactly make my heart skip a beat, but on a 50-inch display with ample streaming options and a tame going-rate, this is a solid value.


  • The Panasonic DT60 is an attractive looking, well-featured LED LCD TV, but mediocre picture quality and worse value make it a tough sell.


  • The DT60 series is packed full of features, and its picture is great. The fanatical picture purist will want to keep shopping; as with most LEDs, these TVs just can't dip far enough into the dark end of the greyscale to bring you the haunting blacks you want. But if you just want a stylish, beautifully designed TV that also offers amazing color, ample connectivity, smooth motion, and a fancy feature or two, the DT60 series will satisfy your needs.


  • The Panasonic TC-LDT60 series offers solid performance, pleasing aesthetics, and a generous feature set, but it's a bit pricey compared with other similarly equipped HDTV lines.
