Panasonic TC-L50ET60: Review

Panasonic Viera TC-L50ET60 is an LCD TV with Edge LED 50-inch integrated with the Web and with Smart TV features that enhance the viewing experience. The Panasonic Viera TC-L50ET60 is an LCD TV features a 50-inch panel with Edge LED backlight, which is notable for its elegant simplicity.

Almost the entire surface is occupied by the screen, and the thin edge silver manages to keep within the limit to its size, promoting the minimalist philosophy in vogue. The basis is formed by a simple metal panel combed, while a V-support supports the entire weight. Once mounted, the Panasonic Viera TC-L50ET60 it seemed a little shaky, but it runs really no risk because the broad base is fully able to support its weight.

The panel is also incredibly thin, but to suffer, though not so important, are the connections, which are not easy and fast access, especially if the TV is placed inside shelving, half-closed or if a wall mounted. The Panasonic Viera TC-L50ET60, having regard for its position within the range of Panasonic LCD, deserved at least an HDMI jack more. There are three more than enough in most cases, but few for fans of electronics and multimedia.

To complete the connections we park, the main three USB, one Ethernet (but there is also the integrated Wi-Fi) and the headphone jack. The TV is also equipped with two slots CAM for viewing pay channels, and two DVB-T tuners and two DVB-S2 for satellite programs. This redundancy is important, as we shall see later, in case you want to harness the capabilities of the VCR which has the TV.

The 3D play from the Panasonic Viera TC-L50ET60 is of good quality. Inevitably, it shows the weakness of the passive 3D technology than active, but the results are satisfactory with a three-dimensional apparent loss of brightness is not the excessive, exquisite detail and overall,  a pleasant vision.

Some criticism should instead move with regard to the depth of black, which does not reach the highest levels, and this penalizes some scenes, typically the darkest, where you lose some of the details. The good news is that the inevitable decline of another black who is when you are watching TV in a brightly lit room, compared to a completely blacked out, here is not making excessive to regain the Panasonic Viera TC-L50ET60 the points you lost.

As for the colors, they are always up to the task. We are very close to the truth, a little ‘less in 3D because the glasses inevitably tending to dark, with sources of quality, we have not noticed bullying or overflows also by the more aggressive tones, such as red or electric blue. Even for watching content in low-definition judgments are the same as those for HD, even if we continue to complain of the scarcity of high-definition programs available, especially for those who do not rely on satellite packages.

Given the spread of HD TV, it is time that it was relying even more channels to this advanced technology. We were blown away by the sound quality of the Panasonic Viera TC-L50ET60. The speakers and amplifier integrated to adequately support the vision of action movies. It’s not like being at the movies, but in a panel so thin it is difficult to expect much more.

The My Home Screen, then, to have a good allows customization and makes available for a large number of contents. Also equipped with features of Play Music can be activated via the USB port by connecting an external hard drive or pen drive with large capacity.

Moreover, the presence of the dual tuner lets you record two different programs at once or watch one while recording another. Perhaps the major limitation of this Panasonic Viera TC-L50ET60 is its cost. The ratio quality / price is not the most favorable and, always remaining within the Panasonic range, there is certainly excellent plasma, Also less expensive, can give best satisfaction. It remains a good LCD, fun and easy to use as it should be every TV That we are letting into our living room.
