Sleek and minimalist in design
The Panasonic TC-P60S60 (MSRP $1299) is one of the first (if not the first) 2013 series available on the consumer market. While Sharp is shipping a few of its new models, Panasonic's S60 series became available for pre-order first: The higher-end ST60 series won't hit our labs until next month. In a way, our pent-up excitement for the new tech expected this year became channeled into this first real taste of 2013. Our first impression? The S60 is going to be a tough act to follow.
Amazing Set at an Amazing Price
I was skeptical of this set at first, when viewed in-store at Best Buy and Walmart it seemed dull and dim compared to the much brighter LCD's on display. Those employees, like a couple reviewers here, just have no idea how to properly set it up. Crank up the brightness and contrast, this is the most amazing picture quality I've seen in my home(make the employees set it to "vivid" for a quick way to compare). Gamers swear by Panasonic Plasmas, and this model is no exception.
Very accurate color gamut
The TC-P50U50 is a budget plasma from Panasonic. It is, in a way, a spiritual successor to 2009's U1 series, albeit a modern, improved version. The U50 series is also the only series in 2012 to support neither internet access or 3D viewing. It is the meat and potatoes Panasonic for 2012.
Good solid picture after calibration
The U50 series is a low priced plasma television available in two sizes, the 50" TC-P50U50 and the 60" TC-P60U50. It is one of only two Panasonic plasma HDTV lines that are not 3D ready in 2012. This is a budget model that does not include any online Smart TV features or other picture processing features found in higher tier models.
I have owned three tv's (this is my second JVC)and it is a definite step ahead of any previous set I've owned. I'm very pleased with the ease of setup (3 minutes from box to TV stand)! The picture size is the factor weighing the most in my decision to purchase this product-I have issues with my eyes-and I'm not regretting buying it at all. The 3D sound wasn't for me, but I had it all customized in minutes and haven't had to tweak anything. Kudos.
Color integrity, motion performance, and viewing angle are actually above average
Right off the bat, we feel it's necessary to point out that $800 for a 47-inch LCD is pretty fair. You'd pay about the same amount for a 2012 Samsung of the same size. This TV is very basic, but if it's within your budget range, it will get the job done.
From a picture quality standpoint, this isn't the top-tier of tech, but we've seen much worse. This JVC offers the full range of colors, accurately and richly, without any bunk processing or oversharpening.
Love this TV!!!
I love this TV!!! It is the perfect answer for an already smart setup. If you have an apple tv or game console and dont want an overpriced tv for simple features this is it. A big tv, great picture, and free sound bar with mount. NOTE: there is no mount for the tv just the sound bar. Remote comes with batteries but no backlight.
Impressive HDTV / Monitor
Overall, this is one very impressive unit. Not fair to compare it to the output & features of my plasma display. This has 2 HDMI (one with audio return) and 1 USB inputs, not a smart TV - but perfect for my purpose. If you want the smart & network connected features, all you have to do is connect a inexpensive networked blu ray player and you are there. My Panasonic plasma has never seen a network cable, the blu ray player provides all the Viera features.
Solid picture performance from CCFL backlight screen.
LG has mostly moved to LED back lighting in their LCD televisions but there are still a few lines of CCFL (fluorescent) back lit LCD models like the CS560 series. The 32" 32CS560 has a 720p, 60Hz LCD panel with flurescent back lighting but few other features.
You can count on quality performance that will last for years.
When comparing other TVs in this price range, this is the one that stands out from the rest of the crowd. It is loaded with great features and shows an accurate and crisp color display. The setup is easy and the value for the money is overwhelming. One other interesting feature that this TV has is the ability to swivel from one side to the other.
You're going to need a narrow screwdriver that is quite long to get the TV stand assembled.
Can display near-realistic image quality.
The LG 32CS460 LCD HDTV is one of LG's lower tier brands. It is the only model in the CS460 series as of writing this review. But it's not a TV without amazing capabilities as shown here. In online ratings, the CS460 earned 3.5 out of 5 stars.
So this LG model is neither terrible nor perfect. It's slightly higher than average. It also awarded with a 2.8 Greenpeace policy rating. As stated earlier, this LG TV is affordable and was discounted by some stores.
My first LED TV
This is my first LED tv and I'm impressed. Great picture, really thin frame. What more could you ask for? I've spend a couple days paying attention issues with the picture, really searching for anything. There really isn't much to complain about. I was a little concerned about a 60hz refresh rate being an issue, but it's refresh rate, even in action scenes is really, really good. No complaints there. The dark is very dark, giving the right feel of depth.
Amazing TV for the price!
Being that this is my first HDTV, I can't really compare it to another specific one, but from what I have, it's just been amazing. The quality of the picture on the screen is crisp and bright, the volume adjusts very well, they even have a setting where it dims if you have the tv on at night in the dark (I sometimes fall asleep with the TV on so that helps). For the price it's a great bargain, I was in WalMart the other day and they had another 32 in. for the same price but a no name brand.
The viewing angle is wide for an LCD TV
There's not much to dislike about the LG 42LS3400 (MSRP $719). It doesn't have many ports and the audio is average, but it makes up for these shortcomings with its great color accuracy, wide viewing angle, and bright white levels. This TV even did well with motion performance and it doesn't have any fancy enhancement features like "TruMotion" or "CineMotion."
The MSRP may say $719, but you can easily find this LED for under $500 online.
Great TV after a lot of tweaking
With a lot of tweaking, I got the picture to look beautiful. I will use my Comcast box sparingly, but I might move to FIOS if the support full 1080. Watching movies on my PS3 and playing games on my Xbox stopped me from returning the TV. I will not be surprised if this set gets bad reviews from Comcast users (even though Its not Samsung's fault). I'm a "videophile" and this passed my personal test with vibrant colors.
Pretty good fast action performance
This is not the least expensive 32" LCD TV you will find but it has LED edge backlighting and the CMR 120 for fast action processing and display. It also has much better front appearance than most of the 32" TVs on the market. It's $450 price tag puts it $100 to $125 more than simple 60Hz LCD (CCFL) TVs from Toshiba and Sony.
Great contrast, Accurate colors
A 40-inch Samsung for less than $700 is good deal without knowing much more. Being that we are a business based on writing scientific reviews with testing data, we will give you some actual insight on the performance and usability of this product in our conclusion.
The UN40EH5000 ($679 MSRP) from Samsung is in many ways the perfect television for some consumers.
