Offers plenty of apps to deliver content, news, and games
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.
Picture quality looks very attractive
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.
Viera Connect provides good selection of internet streaming options
I must say, that I enjoyed my time with the Panasonic TC-L42E60. It not only provides a very good viewing experience for TV programs and Blu-ray/DVD content, but its abundant internet and network streaming capabilities opens up a lot more entertainment possibilities that can be accessed via the very easy to use customizable menu system.
I observed the same "soap opera effect" out of the box that other reviewers commented on and followed thier instructions for how to eliminate this. After a little tweaking, motion seemed natural. The first thing I tried out was the Netflix app. After downloading an update, it launched Netflix no problem. After initial buffering of 5-10 seconds loading a movie everything played smoothly with zero lag whatsoever.
Incredibly bright picture, Great Color accuracy
There aren't many 60-inch LED Smart TV's that can be had for $1,100. Actually, at the time of this review, we were only able to find one near that price: The Vizio E601i. And since we've not had the opportunity to review that particular model, we can't draw a comparison. However, we can say that the Sharp LE650 offers great value.
This is a wonderful television
The picture is incredibly crisp and, despite its size the set is slim and light weight. The clicker has a touch pad feature and the connections with the internet, HBO, Amazon, Netflix are very easy (even for a non-technically savvy person like me). It connected easily (although it was missing 2 screws which Samsung sent out very quickly) so set up time was nominal. There have been no resolution or lighting issues (as have been described in the ES8000).
Strong LED edge lighting makes peak whites very bright
The UN65F8000 (65F8000BF) replaces the UN65ES8000 from 2012 as the top unit in the LED backlit LCD TV lineup for 2013 through early 2014. It includes built in Wifi, built in Web Browser, and Smart TV functions from last year with the addition of a much improved voice interaction and navigation feature for this year.
Curiously charming for an entry-level unit
The Sony Bravia KDL-32R400A (MSRP $330) was one of those really disappointing TVs to review, because it came so close to being excellent. The contrast ratio and color quality I tested were well beyond the expected level of performance when dealing with entry-level, but egregious motion and viewing problems really count this TV out.
While it's not a theater shoe-in, a Kuro killer, or even a smart graduation present, the R400A is not without an audience.
Solid, not perfect, picture quality
We may be halfway through 2013, but Sony is just getting started with its TV lineup. If the W802A is any indication, this is going to be a good year for the Japanese electronics giant.
There are many things to like about the W802A: It looks good enough to make your in-laws jealous, it produces a solid picture, and has vastly improved smart features compared to last year. So is this the right TV for you? That depends on how much you're willing to spend.
Excellent treatment of standard def content
Sony's W802A proved to be a formidable TV for everyday use - particularly for viewing in daylight - providing a sharp image, a feature packed smart interface, and that telltale Sony appeal, all wrapped in a handsome frame. We enjoyed the TV for sports, gaming, and most other content. However, its difficulty with 24fps film content and the issues we experienced with its "frame dimming" feature make it feel a bit unfinished, lacking the luxury experience we expect from Sony's second in command.
Great picture... as long as you get the settings right
When I first turned on this set I thought the picture quality and color saturation were simply stunning...but. While watching our first well-produced drama program and then a golf broadcast, problems soon became apparent. Even though I'm reasonably well versed in TV set-up, were it not for our professional installer, I'm fairly sure I would have put this 140 lb set back in the box and shipped it back.
As always, LG delivers!
LG has come through again! I already have a 42" LCD HDTV and wanted a smaller one for my "man cave". Of course I ordered from Amazon and it arrived right on time, as always is the case with Amazon. This 32" model delivers a HD picture using the entire screen. LG's are the easiest on the market to set up every single adjustment you might want to make. This one is a little newer, and has even more adjustments.
It is like the actors on the screen are in the room with you.We did not touch any of the color/contrast settings. The one thing I noticed about this tv VS the old one is that it takes longer to turn on, about 17 seconds Vs 10 seconds for the old one. not a big deal once you get used to it. We have had this tv about a week and we love it. The Picture is so clear that I have noticed things on my old DVD's that I never saw before.
A nice looking TV overall
The TC-L39EM60 differs from that one with the 240 backlight blinking feature. The media player on the EM60 also accepts a wider range of file formats. This TV is a great option for a second room or large bedroom. All of the 3D features and Smart TV features are missing on this one, so it may not be the best living room set. The 39EM60 stands to be one of the best budget models for the year.
Clean and sharp image, Very little edge-light bleeding
With a fairly slim feature set and a budget feel to the overall design, we'd hoped to be knocked off our feet by the EM60's picture quality. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case. Judder issues, inconsistent color, and poor sound gave a lackluster impression of Panasonic's working-class model. We think thrifty consumers will be more satisfied with the LG LN5300 or the Vizio E-420i-AO because, while the EM60 has its moments, this fierce market demands better.
This Plasma panel offers the best picture quality for the price!
The F5300 is truly a winner at this price. Colors are bright and vibrant, while the blacks are deep and true. At this price, the whites are going to be a little greyish and the blacks aren't going to be as deep as the more expensive models. You can't really expect the quality to match the more expensive Samsung models. With the proper calibrations, this TV will still shine and can look extremely natural and true.
Deep blacks and good detail in dark scenes
The PN60F5300 is one of the top value plasmas for 2013/2014. It skips all extra features for picture quality, internet connectivity, and 3D functionality that the F5500 series and F8500 series plasmas employ. What you get is a large screen with the always good picture quality of a plasma TV at an affordable price point. The 60 inch size sits in the middle of the F5300 series and is enough screen for medium to large sized rooms.
Brilliant colors, Light weight, attractive design
While Sony's R450A is an attractive, option packed TV, its poor off-axis performance and lack of control over intrusive features like MotionFlow have us looking elsewhere. At the $500 price point, your money will go further with competing models from the likes of Samsung and LG. Still, there's something beautiful about how Sony renders its HD content. If you really have to have that Sony glow, the R450A is an inexpensive way to get it; just make sure you're sitting front and center.
