Panasonic TC-L55WT50


As the third and most expensive Panasonic LED TV CNET has reviewed this year, the WT50 faced high expectations. They went mostly unfulfilled.

The Panasonic TC-LWT50-series LED TV showed the best off-angle performance of any LCD I've tested, and its screen was quite uniform. Its 3D performance was good with little crosstalk. The styling is sleek with an ultrathin frame and unique horseshoe...

The high-priced WT50 has a sub-par 2D picture, reproducing a lighter shade of black than many cheaper LEDs. Panasonic inexplicably saddled the best default picture mode with compulsory smoothing, and the other modes have color accuracy issues. The TV...

Class-leading quality from off-angle can't excuse the expensive Panasonic TC-LWT50's disappointing picture when seen from the sweet spot.

Panasonic Viera TC-L55WT50


The Panasonic Viera TC-L55WT50 is Panasonic's flagship LCD for 2012. While its price point and release date weren't given out, we did find out a lot about the software package users can expect. While the new system is definitely a step up from the old...

Some impressive features, like built-in wifi and 3D capability ; All new hardware and software offer an interesting aesthetic and increased functionality

Some of the new software ran a bit slowly ; Even with the additional remote, typing in the browser felt a bit clunky

The TC-L55WT50 looks like a pretty solid TV. Its new software package seems interesting, it has built-in wifi, is 3D capable, and has a different aesthetic. The software seemed a bit sluggish, but hopefully it’ll be a bit faster by the time the final...

"Great Set with Nice Features!"


I always feel it helpful that the reader knows the basis for my reviews/comparisons. This is our fourth HD set, but first LED/LCD, the others are plasma. This is our second smart set. First off, this set is light enough to be delivered by UPS and not a...

Picture is great, it really pops, 3D quality is amazing

Doesn't come with 3D glasses

Panasonic Viera TX-L55WT50B review


Panasonic's top of the range LED LCD TV – the Panasonic TX-L55WT50B 55-inch Smart Viera LED-backlit LCD TV to give its name the full dues – is one grand home cinema screen. And by grand we mean it looks a treat; price wise you'll need to multiply that...

Great design, picture quality, deep blacks, connectivity, ideal for 3D, 200Hz panel is smooth, about as good as Edge LED TV gets

Pricey, trackpad remote, DT50 offers much the same picture quality, SD card slot a pain to extract card from, stand holds TV a little flimsy when touched, not "true" 1600Hz, no W7 mobile or desktop app available

Panasonic’s WT50 range is among the best LED-backlit LCD TVs that we’ve seen. Rich colours and deep blacks are met with bags of features. But for all its excellence it is a pricey set. If 3D isn’t your thing then look towards the more affordable DT50...

Panasonic TX-L42WT50 review


If you've been harbouring suspicions that Panasonic is reserving its premium TV technology for plasma, then think again. The brand's new WT50 line of LED screens oozes proprietary refinement. For those in the market for a leading-edge LCD, Panasonic is...

Excellent HD detail and tonality; good IFC performance; multitasking dual core processor

3D suffers from sporadic crosstalk; no support for MKV playback from network attached storage; serious price tag

Panasonic TX-L42WT50 review


The TX-L42WT50 offers a good lineup of features, has excellent 2D and 3D picture quality and is wrapped up in a stylish design. It's quite expensive however, and if you don't tend to watch TV in a very bright room then Panasonic's own TX-P42GT50 plasma...

Good picture presets ; Rich and bold colours ; Deep black levels when LED dimming is enabled ; Bright images ; Wide viewing angle ; Multitasking Smart TV apps

Poor EPG and dated looking menus ; Touchpad remote is awkward to use ; Blacks levels suffer if dimming is disabled ; Expensive

The Panasonic TX-L42WT50 is a very impressive TV. It's got excellent picture quality across both 2D and 3D, agood range of features and a stylish design.

Panasonic TX-L55WT50


Can Panasonic's flagship LCD TV for 2012 give Sony's 55HX853 a run for its money?

Terrific bright pictures ; Sumptuous design ; Excellent multimedia features

Expensive ; Distracting black level problems ; Touchpad remote is frustrating

models recently rewriting the edge LED local dimming rule book, we’re hopeful that Panasonic can deliver similar skills with the L55WT50.

Panasonic TX-L42WT50


Panasonic gets really, really serious about LED technology with its flagship L42WT50.

Stunning ‘edgeless’ design ; Multitasking via dual-core processor ; Excellent picture quality - especially in 3D

It’s pretty expensive ; Minor black level difficulties ; Touchpad remote isn’t great

Panasonic TX-L42WT50


The Panasonic TX-L42WT50 is trendy a 42-inch LCD TV with 3D support, four HDMI ports, three USB, an SD card slot, Bluetooth support for keyboards, headphones and compatible speakers, an LAN port for wired internet connections and built-in Wi-Fi for...

The first thing that catches eye is the stunning design of the Panasonic TX-L42WT50. Its clean lines throughout are a joy to behold. On, or switched off, the TX-L42WT50 is a thing of beauty. On looks alone, the TX-L42WT50 instantly feels like a premium...

Panasonic appears to have thought of everything by supplying a remote with a touchpad for navigating the vast app menus. However it is too small, not offering enough space for your fingers. The touchpad is not sensitive either: requiring a little too...

The Panasonic TX-L42WT50 is a superb television that excels itself in both 2D and 3D. An impressive array of HDMI ports and an attractive design to go with its awesome picture quality make it one of our favourites.
