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.
Beautiful set, Pretty pricey but you pay for quality
I'd highly recommend this tv to anyone who is looking to buy a quality set that provides a good at home cinematic feeling. If you can afford it id recommend buying this sets big brother LA8600. Which comes equipped with a built camera, that allows you to use skype and/or control the tv through finger gestures.
Voice Control through Magic Remote speeds selection process/browsing
The LG 55LA7400 promises to be a pretty good seller for LG with the excellent Magic Remote, 3D, and faster 240Hz processing speed, and superior sound quality. Competition is from the Samsung UN55F7500 and UN55F7100, as well as many plasma TVs such as the Panasonic TC-P55VT60. Overall the TV has lots to offer though as of this writing may not be the best value on the market at around $2000.
TV's design is nothing if not unique
Picture quality like this on a TV half the price would be one thing, but a price just shy of two grand is another story; the 47-inch LA7400 carries an MSRP of $1799.99. Definitely look for this on sale - we found it online for about $1200. Sure, much of what you're paying for is features - but that's exactly the point. If you're looking for top-dog picture quality, move on.
3D is so good
If you are after an LED set, the LA7400 performs well compared to other LEDs in its price range. The 55-incher reviewed here is $1,600 at Amazon, and the 60-inches comes in at $1,900. The pre-calibration image was OK, but the calibrated image was often beautiful, with great color saturation and a nice, natural look. The black level/contrast ratio is similar to other edge-lit LED LCD models (as in, only OK), but it offers some of the best 3D Iâ?? ve watched at home.
Fantastic TV for the price!
I went from a 32" Philips LCD TV to this and I have to admit the Black level of the Vizio isn't as dark (probably a byproduct of the edge-lighting). However, don't be scared of Vizio because some people have had excessive edge-lighting issues. If your unit has a lot of this issue, then exchange it within the return period.
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'm sure with all new products there are going to be some that out of the box are not good, for me, it has worked great since set up and running it for about a week. I also read it takes over a month for the colors to "settle in". Non-HD picture is just OK - but I came from a DLP TV so I would compare it as the same as my old TV. This TV is made for Blu-ray and HD content.
Built in Web Browser and Wifi
In my opinion this TV looks as good or better than the ES8000 design-wise. A good chunk of dough has also been wiped from the price, so consider this one of my top value pics for 2013/2014. The only thing it gives up from the top model are the micro dimming ultimate, though it still has micro dimming, and it has a dual core processor rather than the quad-core, and no front facing camera.
A terrific collection of features and smart content
The 55-inch F7100 is not worth $2,499 (though it's available right now for $1,699). While Samsung's Smart Hub (and the cable connectivity therein) is probably the best smart platform on the market, it's still only a smart platform. On one hand, this TV looks great, and is fitted with all of the modern accoutrement you might want with an investment in a new display. Be warned, though: It has a few drawbacks that make me hesitate to praise it further.
Dark scenes have vibrant color with excellent dark shadow detail thanks to the high contrast
This is one of the best features of the 55LA6200, value. At $1100 it's tough to beat in the 55" size for value. It competes with the Panasonic TC-P55ST60. Samsung's answer is the UN55F6400. The LA6200 is one of the best value buys in the market.
Slim bezels with a quiet, gunmetal finish
If you need a bigger panel without a price tag to match, the LA6200 series is a pretty decent bet. This isn't an exciting TV - the black levels are middling and the controls are downright spartan. But if you aren't a picture purist and fancy features like apps and 3D are important to you, you could do a lot worse.
My advice? Do yourself a favor and take a look at the Google-powered TVs from LG this year instead.
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.
What else do you wan for the price?
If you want a large screen for a cheap price, stop here. This TV might not have all of the bells and whistles that Samsung or Sony offer, but you also are not paying anywhere near those prices, either. This TV offers a great picture at a great price (at 40"), and for my money that is all that I really care about.
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.
Delivers high-end picture quality
Within the TV industry, reviewers and hobbyists alike agree on one thing: Plasma TVs produce a better picture than LCDs. And, hand over heart, it's true. However, LCDs like the Samsung F6300 redeem the fickle technology's mass popularity: This TV's picture looks very good, hands down, and its software works with fluid precision.
