Size Name: 50-Inch
having tried various TV technologies of different generations from B&W and COLOR BULB CRTs , CCFL LCD, FULL-ARRAY LCD/LED, EDGE-LIT, DIRECT-LIT, PLASMA and trial OLED, buyers should be aware of certain pros and cons of the TV they

purchase. now these pros and cons are not only limited by what I have mentioned. it also has to do with certain technological implementations that different TV manufacturing companies such as Panasonic, Samsung, Sony, Vizio, Sharp,

Toshiba, LG, etc... are following. panels and screen coatings or glasses, refresh rates and etc.. used plays a part on getting certain results.

for starters, buyers should buy what they are looking for as a priority with their purchase or which priorities come first or of importance to them. although budget will always play a part of it, and most are leaning towards the best

bang for your buck purchase. it would have been easier if most people have a lot of cash to burn. but anyway, here are my thoughts about this product if this is a good buy or not.

my simple answer is YES.

PROS:

1. TRUE NATIVE 120HZ panel with 240 BLB capability

- be wary that certain manufacturers have fake refresh rate and I mean false advertise and sometimes they do not even advertise the refresh rate. I can confirm that this model is truely 120HZ. so you can enjoy a much smoother

movement/motion when watching. if you see some skips or don't see where to ball goes in tennis, basketball, and puck in hockey, then it is pretty much a 60hz TV. the only sure thing that the TV is more than 60HZ is a Panasonic Plasma.

gamers would surely appreciate the responsiveness and smooth play.

Size Name: 50-Inch
I have a personal dilema on my hands right now. I purchased the TCP50S60 plasma last week and already I have an issue with some greenish film looking image primarily seen on white or light grey images. Anything dark is fine-fantastic actually. I have always owned a Plasma, this was just a size upgrade purchase at a liquidation price. I realize this problem may be some burn in but I did not expect that less than 2 weeks in.
My dilemma is, while I am waiting for Panasonic to call me back on this issue and render a decision on what they are going to do, the same retailer I bought the Plasma from is now selling the TCL50E60 at an amazing price. There has been no question in my mind that the Plasma has a better picture but I am getting annoyed with the little issues and am wondering if I should take the leap over to the LED side with the TCL50E60. I have limited time to make this decision as this deal will not last long. It is however a $200 jump in price from the plasma. Any recommendations ?

This TV has pop-up ads enabled by default - how to disable them July 14 2013
By ac2011 - Published on Amazon.com
Size Name: 50-Inch Verified Purchase
First off, I do like this TV. The display is crisp and clear, the blacks are deep and sharp and the sound is decent.

However, I was on the verge of returning this TV due to the constant pop-up ads that are displayed every time you power on the TV (large ad that floats up from the bottom of the screen and takes up 1/2 the TV's screen real estate and doesn't disappear for several seconds) and the small ad that pops up every time you adjust the volume.

Panasonic has, of course, buried the option to turn off these ads deep with-in the TV's menu tree. Here are the steps to turn off the ads.

1. Press 'Menu' on the TV's remote
2. Choose Setup
3. Choose Display customization
4. Choose Viera Connect Banner
5. Choose Off

If it weren't for these ads and the frustration of having to navigate through every menu item to locate the option to disable them, I would have given the TV 5 stars.

Great Picture But A Sound Problem Aug. 23 2013
By Jack - Published on Amazon.com
Size Name: 42-Inch
This TV produces an excellent picture, with saturated colors and deep blacks. The viewing angle is more than adequate. Video response is quick and I've noticed no judder on fast-moving scenes, such as sports. The sound from the built-in speakers is better than on some flat screens I've heard but far from high fidelity. It is quite clear, though, and voices are easy to understand even with the poor audio on many cable channels.

The "smart" features of this unit are quite easy to access and use. The menu is well laid out and you can add more apps in addition to those that come pre-installed. Most are free but some have a nominal cost. The web browser is fairly fast but, as others have pointed out, entering URLs is a pain with the remote. However, you can save favorite sites so you don't have to type them in the next time. You can also choose a home screen which will appear when the set is first turned on.

There are some oddities. For one, the remote, while well-designed, controls only the TV and certain Panasonic video players. Many of today's TV remotes can also control a cable box, a convenient feature. The power-on LED is red while many other TV brands use a green light. Red is most often used to denote a problem. There is a nearly 1/2" tall strip of clear plastic running full-width across the bottom of the TV. On its left side are the power LED, the receiver for the remote and this is also where an optional web camera (for Skype) would be mounted. This strip appears to be a bit fragile so it's best to take care not to bump it.

This set has a media player which can display pictures, videos and play music from, say, an iPod or a USB drive loaded with music files. This is where I first encountered the sound problem mentioned in the title of this review. When I played music tracks from a USB drive they sounded strange and I soon discovered that the left channel audio was coming through both speakers. The right channel sound could not be heard at all. This was also the case when listening to a sound bar connected to the set's digital audio output. I then tried listening to Pandora and the result was the same. Curiously, the sound was fine with TV stations, both over-the-air and on cable. None of the settings on the TV's audio menu had any effect on this problem.

It took some doing but I was finally able to contact Panasonic, by letter, and tell them about the problem. They responded via email a couple of weeks later and this was the first of many back and forth emails in which they requested more details about the problem and passed them on to their engineers. Finally, more than two months after the initial contact, they came up with a firmware update which fixed the problem. I have no idea how many of this particular model may have this malady but if you own one of these sets you might want to check out the sound on both Pandora and via the media player to see if yours is similarly affected. If it is you might want to contact Panasonic for the firmware update.

Great Quality to Price Ratio, but still under review July 14 2013
By Brian Vianzon - Published on Amazon.com
Size Name: 50-Inch
Pros:

-Screen Quality that rivals Samsung
-Excellent App Support
-Excellent Smart Phone Support

Cons:

-No built-in QWERTY Keyboard on the Remote Control
-Terrible on-screen typing
-Interrupts in Netflix Streaming
-Disconnects with Smart Phones when content sharing (Photos or Video)

Details:

This was purchased through Costco two weeks ago for $750 ($50 Off) and it's my first HDTV. I've been fortunate to experience a 55" Samsung Smart TV and a 60" Sharp Aquos from my Father's setup, and I was biased to Samsung's superior screen quality. When I started my search, I read through Consumer Reports Articles, Newegg, and Amazon reviews, but ended up with this Panasonic Viera.

First, I spent an hour watching content side-by-side comparing the Panasonic Viera TC-50LE64 with the Samsung 46" Smart TV UN46F6350A ($800), and the Panasonic has the same screen quality. Second, the Apps that I wanted from the Samsung were already on the Viera (Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, Hulu Plus, Vudu, and YouTube). Netflix Streaming has been very impressive for HD Content and surround sound on my 5.1 Logitech Z-5500. Third, the most important feature was content sharing from Smart Phones, specifically from the Samsung Galaxy SIII that my wife and I have. The SIII and Viera detected each other with ease and I have been able to view Picture Slideshows and Videos in HD.

Cons Continued:

Remote Control - At my work, we use 60" Vizio E-Series TVs for System Monitoring, and Vizio was smart with integrating QWERTY on the backside of the remote control. For the Viera, each App will have different ways for on-screen input (since they are not uniform, I find this cumbersome for input). I plan to try the IOGEAR GKM681R 2.4GHz Wireless Compact Keyboard, which has been compatible with some of the older Panasonic models.

Netflix - I've watched about 20 different movies and several TV shows and about 1-in-5 will buffer and then fail to load (I'll try to post pictures and video). My career as a Network/System Administrator makes my home setup very particular, so I have the Viera on the 5 GHz Band instead of 2.4 GHz due to congestion from neighboring Wi-Fi. I have a TrendNet with OpenWRT that is about 20' away going through two uninsulated walls. I regularly use inSSIDer to check for Wi-Fi Interference and I'm the only Wi-Fi on 5 GHz. Turning the TV Off/On hasn't made a difference and using 2.4 GHz produced the same results.

Content Sharing - when viewing a picture or video, a special icon appears to initiate the connection to the Viera. On a few occasions, the feature would work and then lose connectivity or the icon to connect would disappear. Power cycling the TV or Wi-Fi AP, as well as reboot on the phone, wouldn't fix the issue. Eventually, the feature would just start functioning again.

Possible explanations:

(1) Netflix App may have a bug or Netflix is have server issues
(2) The radios for the 5 GHz Band may be failing, but I'm not convinced that's the case because my Macbook Pro and SIII remain connected on 5 GHz when the issue occurs.
(3) During one instance, when I had the Viera scan for Wi-Fi, it did not produce any results. Fortunately, the Wi-Fi module is exposed on the back of the TV and easy to access, so there's a possibility of a Panasonic repair to come out and replace the module or send a replacement.
(4) For Content Sharing, it could be a Networking issue (need to check my Router) or a bug that could be fixed with newer firmware on the Viera or updates on the SIII.

When I get time, I'm going to check with Panasonic's Support. I'll continue to monitor the Netflix and Content Sharing issues and add more feedback, but so far 1-star off for minor inconveniences.

[Update August 18, 2013]

I discovered that Content Sharing pictures and video on the MicroSD card occasionally has trouble being streamed to the TV. I'm not sure if this is a bug with my SIII or Panasonic. Could still be related to Network issues, but I've check my Mikrotik and used the Packet Sniffing tool. Everything seems fine there, but I have a TrendNET AP that I have to check.

I tried a firmware update for the TV, but the problem with Netflix still persists, but with less frequency. In some instances, I can jump to another movie without problems, but other times I have to shutdown the App and then it resumes on restart.

I added my Amazon Prime account for Amazon Instant Video App. The user interface is not as nice as the Netflix App, but I'm not sure if it differs across different TVs. I have encountered similar issues where the streaming gets interrupted. Again, it would be a Wi-Fi issue.

Good but some of the options Need work Sept. 7 2013
By charise - Published on Amazon.com
Size Name: 42-Inch Verified Purchase
previously i had a Panasonic TC-l42e3 television and was very happy with it. I upgraded because I wanted to have wireless on board versus needing to use a wifi dongle and and use of the full viera connect apps (the e3 only had 6 canned apps).

So the picture is great! I love it. But I had issues with using my Yamaha soundbar. I connected it via the optical audio out but there was no menu option to select external speakers (my e3 had this option) so now I have sound in literal stereo because sound is coming from both the TV and the soundbar. I went to the Panasonic support site and found advice that said to mute the TV. This works but you have to mute the TV each time you turn it on! But no fear! There is a solution! The wonder of google has revealed that the TV can be placed in HOTEL mode. This mode allows a cap to set on volume control so setting the cap to 0 will allow the TV speakers to be permanently muted.

1) turn on the TV
2) press and hold the vol down button on the TV and repeatedly press the INPUT button on the remote (approximately 3 times)
3) turn HOTEL MODE to ON and set the VOL and MAX VOL to 0
4) Press EXIT
5) Turn TV off for 5 seconds and turn back on

If I hadn't found this option this TV was going to be returned

Shock and Awe May 20 2013
By DTanner - Published on Amazon.com
Size Name: 50-Inch
I went into the store to buy the Panasonic plasma rated by CNET. The E60 LED was displayed next to it and I was surprised how much brighter the image is. The picture quality seemed of equal quality to the top rated unit and my eyes didn't have to strain to see the dimmer plasma-based picture. We tried several modes and brightness levels and the plasma just couldn't come close.

After we got it home, I was simply amazed at how good the picture quality is at this price point. The smart TV with wireless features made this a plug and play device; literally, one plug goes in the wall, configure the wireless though on-screen prompts, log into Amazon Prime, and we were blown away by the opening reels of madmen and shocked at how bad Cameron's and Ed Rooney's teeth are in Ferris Bueler's Day Off... I can't wait to throw on Art of Flight once the stereo is connected. If you are looking for a smart TV with incredible picture, no 3D, and for less than $1000, you found it!
