The Japanese giant is once again releasing a huge number of new televisions for 2013 – up to 16 plasma ranges and 16 LCD/LED models are expected to make their way in to UK shops. Finding the sweetspot for performance-per-pound value, therefore, is our mission.
Panasonic TX-L50ET60B TV review: Design
Last year’s ET50 series, which the ET60 series replaces, was a good but not great TV – will 2013 be a different story? It certainly looks the part out of the box. A new Super Narrow Bezel and metal design makes for one of the best Panasonic TVs that we’ve seen, and it sits on a simple rectangular pedestal stand, which allows for rotation.
The overall quality of the finish is excellent – though you don’t want to catch yourself on one of the pointed corners –and worthy of a far more expensive television. The flagship Panasonic LED models will have to go some to raise the style stakes.

Panasonic TX-L50ET60B TV review: Specification and features
The Panasonic TX-L50ET60B is a Full HD, 120Hz, LED-backlit TV, with Freeview HD and analogue TV tuners. You’ll find three HDMI inputs (one fewer than last year), two USB inputs, an SD card slot, headphone connection and an optical audio output side-mounted on the unit, while component, composite, RGB and stereo RCA audio inputs are on the back panel. So, it’s pretty comprehensive.
As with last year’s range, the Panasonic TX-L50ET60B ‘Smart VIERA’ TV offers wired or wireless network connectivity, and once online you get access to a wide range of content. BBC iPlayer is on board, plus BBC News and BBC Sport apps, and you can access films from Acetrax and Netflix. Standards such as YouTube, Aupeo! (internet radio), Facebook and Twitter are also present.
There’s no sign of the other terrestrial channels’ on-demand offerings, however, with ITV Player, 4oD and Demand Five notable by their absence.
If you do connect this smart TV to your network, you’ll also be able to stream music and video from any DLNA compatible device, such as a laptop or tablet, and access the internet via the built-in web browser. And making this smart TV experience all the more usable is the new Viera 2 remote app for smartphones and tablets.

Panasonic ET60 series TVs
ET60 Series TVs have a stylish modern look, making them a perfect fit for any room.
If you're looking for an LED screen with real wow factor, then this is it. Image quality is outstanding, thanks to a 600Hz BLS (Backlight Scanning) IPS panel, and connecting to the internet is simplicity itself courtesy of a built-in wireless LAN. Managing your TV, apps and games is made easier by Panasonic's unique customisable My Home Screen user interface.
The ET60 Series features a modern brushed aluminium frame so it's easy to accommodate within any décor, while a Super Narrow Bezel allows you to maximise your chosen screen size without dominating your room space.
ET60 Series LED TVs may be clever, but anyone can use them. Panasonic's Voice Guidance technology literally talks you through the set's many features and functions. If you need to consult an operating manual at any time there's also an onscreen eHelp guide available at the touch of a button (no more trying to remember where you put the booklet). Internet and network content can be accessed via a wired Ethernet cable or the TV's own Wireless LAN.
This is an EXCELLENT TV for all purposes like gaming, watchinng tv shows or movies.
