Panasonic E60 LED TV: Very good picture, great value

 

The Panasonic E60 is among the company's least expensive LED LCDs, but it punches far above its picture quality weight.

The affordable ; 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 Smart TV content.

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.

Charging the right price for a very good picture, Panasonic's E60 LED LCD is one of the best values available among midrange TVs.
