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.
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.
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.
Impressive return on invested dollar
Summing up, based on picture size and quality for the price I paid, I'd have to give the Vizio two thumbs way up! The true test will be over time but for now, I have no problem in giving the Vizio 5 stars. Something else I found interesting is there was no detailed manual that came with the Vizio, only a quick setup guide which was handy. In order to get the big manual will require you to go online and download all 45 pages or some such.
Lots of options for image-tweakers
Which is better: a mammoth TV with a mediocre picture, or a smaller TV with a great picture? If you're in the camp that believes size trumps all, Vizio has just the LCD. The Vizio E601I-A3 spans a whopping 60 inches, yet sells for under a grand. Your budget wins, even though your eyes will wish you'd spent a bit more.
The Eyes of an Eagle
The level of detail breaks new ground as expected with 4K resolution. The Samsung image processing is very natural but you do see more detail than you would in real-life. It like having the eyes of an eagle. Hyper-detail? This image processing allows for viewing at a greater distance, which is the exact opposite of what experts recommend, based upon the 4K resolution smaller pixel size as compared to 2K/1080p panels.
Good picture quality, Relatively slim design
A few minor quirks aside, we think this Vizio TV provides real value. The E420i-A0's solid picture quality, useable on-board audio and impressive Smart TV interface make it a product we'd be happy to have at the center of our home theater. Those looking to move into the 1080p Smart TV arena without breaking the bank will find the Vizio E420i-A0 a formidable contender.
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.
Create images with greater clarity
It is a slight step up from the F6300 series below it. The two series are pretty much the same except for 2 major additions in the features department. First there is local dimming, that helps to create a better contrast ratio, and second is the inclusion of active 3D. Those are two big upgrades for such a small step up. This TV is aimed at those looking for a value model that offers a little more than just a nice picture.
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.
