Good Brand

We calculated the average reviews for all Panasonic TVs and also specifically for Panasonic mid-size TVs and found that in both cases Panasonic had good reviews.

Has a Built-In Camera

The Panasonic TX-L42ET60 has a built-in camera, which is unusual. Most of the other TVs of this spec and age do not have a built-in camera.

We compared this TV to all the other TVs with a built-in camera and we think the Samsung UE48H8000[plb_2233903_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

We compared this TV to all the other 3D compatible TVs and we think the Samsung HG46EC890[plb_2328924_price], and the LOEWE Art 32[plb_2089147_price] which has better reviews; or the Panasonic TX-42AS740[plb_2232478_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.

If you would prefer a TV with a faster refresh rate then you might want to look at the Samsung UE46H7000[plb_2232247_price] (800Hz and higher rated), or the Panasonic TX-47AS650[plb_2232474_price] (1,200Hz and higher rated) or the Panasonic TX-42AS740[plb_2232478_price] (1,200Hz and cheaper).

ET60 er blant de rimeligste modellene fra Panasonic, men har til tross for dette et stramt og lekkert design, og en gjennomgående god bildekvalitet. I denne runden går seieren likevel til...

Exceptionally natural picture performance
Userfriendly interface
Good value
Slim, stylish
Great new home screen options
Native contrast could be better
Some key video streaming services are missing
Remote control a bit old school
Black levels lack depth and solidity
Backlight not perfect
