Panasonic TC-LE60 series

The Good 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 Smart TV content.

The Bad 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.

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

Review

Best Panasonic LCD in years a great value

Over the last couple of years Panasonic TVs have followed a pattern so simple, a caveman could remember it: Plasma good, LCD bad.

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.

Now we've finally reviewed the Panasonic LCD outlier. The TC-LE60 is the only non-plasma Panasonic TV in two years to crack a 6 in our reviews, and it does so handily, with a combination of aggressive pricing and very good picture quality. It's not the equal of the company's like-priced S60 plasma, but it certainly trounces that TV in a very bright room.
