Panasonic TC-L42E60


Not including one outlier , Panasonic plasmas have been uniformly excellent in our 2012 and 2013 reviews, the best on the market, averaging a score of 8.1. Its LED LCD TVs have been among the very worst according to our reviews, averaging a score of 5.3.

The affordable Panasonic TC-LE60 series evinced commendable picture quality with deep black levels for an LED LCD, superb bright-room performance, solid video processing and color; true 120Hz processing; unobtrusive ultra-minimalist styling; extensive...

Poor sound quality; worse off-angle viewing and picture uniformity than a plasma; Smart TV system is a bit clunky and includes pop-up banner ads by default.
