Best Price performer right now
It is a fantastic product, built in wifi, applications that actually work (amazon Prime Video is a great example).
Like others, I want to break the screen in properly so I am using some patterns to age the screen. But we are also using the TV for some of the time and the picture is outstanding as well as everything else about it.
Good solid black levels and color with HD content
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.
Latest Smart apps, streaming services, Skype video
The icing on the cake of this HDTV's performance is its remarkable value. While we do not consider price in our final rating, the TC-P65ST60 is simply a steal. Let's compare it to an LED LCD HDTVs with local dimming, the only types of LCDs that offer performance in the same ballpark. There are only two local dimming LED LCDs remaining and they are both 2012 leftovers. The 60-inch Elite Pro60X5FD (review) is $5,500 at Magnolia/Best Buy.
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.
In spite of my minor grousing, the Panasonic is a terrific Smart TV, especially for its current list price. I realize that not everyone is as picky as I am about certain features and honestly, the TC-L55ET 60 delivers outstanding audio and video performance. In all honesty, I prefer my other set a bit more but it lists for quite a bit more money than the TC-L55ET 60. If this is your price range and you're on the fence, my advice is an unqualified "go for it."
After calibrating the TV, picture quality with HD content is great
The TC-L55ET60 may be slightly overpriced at nearly $1250 when compared to some other 3rd tier models, but the strong picture quality nearly justifies it. The strong 3D performance helps its case too. Those in search of a good TV for 3D content may be in luck. The similar Samsung UN50F6400 sells for a bit less with the same features. The LG 50LA6200 is the passive 3D competition for the ET60.
What's not to like?
The Vizio is very easy to set up. It is, quite literally, plug and play. And within a very few minutes of filling in on-screen answers, the wi-fi was working and Netflix was playing. The remote is small, as are the keys (for my somewhat large fingers). But everything is clearly labeled, which makes it is easy to use. The learning process for the remote is short. I only had to refer to the 'Quick Start' guide once.
Easy to stream movies & series with Internet Apps
As mentioned in the beginning, it's a good HDTV with bunch of useful features. You'll watch TV, series and movies no problem with this. And if you run out of them temporarily you can get more with Internet Apps. Thus there's always something entertaining when you fire up this TV :)
Great TV/ Great Price
This is a very nice TV at a nice pricepoint at $598. The picture quality and audio quality are both above my expectations. Barely anyone can tell the difference between 60Hz and 120 Hz, and I don't feel that paying the extra is worth any more in picture quality. Vizio is a quality company, based in California. This TV is to replace a Samsung 52 in LCD that stopped working (flickering continuously on-off) in past weeks.
The best LED-lit television at a budget price
It's a great buy. Lots of connectivity, access to smart apps (I enjoy the YouTube one, Netflix is also available and they are adding more). Definitely recommended.
Tips and Caveats
If you plan to use this as a monitor, make sure you label the source as "PC" of some kind. This removes a lot of post-processing.
The overall picture quality is pretty impressive.
The most enticing element about Samsung UN32EH5300 is the presence of various features such as for internet connections, Netflix, etc. The Wi-Fi technology included in the TV is a major plus to the HDTV as well as the fact that it has stronger and easy setup to connections. The overall picture quality is pretty impressive. The web page PIP comes along with the TV signal.
The web browser doesn't support Flash, which I initially thought Samsung does support on these TVs.
Presence of internet connections, Netflix, etc.
The Samsung UN32EH5300 is one of the budget LED TVs in the market today. The picture quality is not the same as its expensive counterparts but is quite nice for the price that you pay and for its size. This HDTV also has some useful features that may be a good selling point for the model such as the Smart Content and the built-in Wi-Fi.
Pretty good quality for a very good price
Let me start by saying that my television came promptly and in one piece, two days after ordering. I was very happy about that, and even happier that it wasn't busted up into fragments during shipping- so order with confidence.
As for the television itself, the picture is pretty amazing. Some say you can't really tell the difference between 780 and 1080 with televisions of this size, but comparing it to my roommates television of the same size, mine looks clearer and crisper.
Impressive looking picture quality
I have had this TV for a few months now and am very pleased with it. Let my preface this by saying that I used to sell TVs for a living and I am pretty particular about picture quality. (I am particular about sound quality as well, and don't believe that any of the speakers that are built into TVs nowadays are worth a darn. I have all the TVs in my house hooked into separate audio systems, so you won't see me addressing the sound quality of this unit.)
Delivers smooth images without excessive judder.
At $900 this Sony TV is a compelling value especially if you do not care about 3D capability. It should be a very strong seller at this price. Competition comes from the LG 47LM6200 and the Samsung UN46ES6100 to name a couple which sell for $100 more.
A very average Smart TV that is not as easy to use as the better performing competition.
The Bravia KDL-40EX640 ($899 MSRP) is a low-end, 1080p Smart TV from Sony in 2012. We like that they are producing a cheaper Smart TV, hitting a niche audience that wants online features, no 3D, and a good television.
The menu system and the performance are definitely acceptable. We saw great improvements in the Smart TV interface compared to Sony's attempt at advanced features last year. The Home menu puts together everything you need in one easy-access list.
Very Good Picture, And The Best Apps Around
We are very pleased with the picture and the sound. The Vizio's LED backlighting yields excellent color renditions. Skin tones look great too. The motion smoothness is at least as good as other 120 hz sets I've watched. Sports look so much better on this TV than on my 2010 47" Sharp, actually every DirectTV HD channel looks better on this TV than the Sharp.
We are especially happy with the NetFlix interface.
