2 February 2014

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
