Panasonic TC-L47DT50 LED LCD HDTV Review$1,899.00
With its modern good looks and sleek profile, the Panasonic TC-L47DT50 ($1,899 MSRP) is an appealing TV that scored well with our tests.
The two best features on this TV, aside from the design, are the exceptional viewing angle and a contrast ratio that benefits from a great peak brightness. Another thing to consider with the Panasonic TC-L47DT50 is the 3D experience, which is quite enjoyable.
Viera Connect, Panasonic’s Smart TV platform, is another story. It's a mediocre improvement over last year's version, integrating a frustrating browser experience and sluggish interface. Panasonic has a long way to go if it wants to catch up with LG, Samsung or Sony in this area.
There are plenty of options for a 47-inch TV that includes 3D and internet features. While LG bests this TV in the 3D department and Samsung bests it in the internet department, the Panasonic TC-L47DT50 holds its own thanks to its great uniformity and the previously mentioned viewing angle.
The Panasonic TC-L47DT50 was more expensive than all of the other TVs we compared it to and as such, it is tough to recommend on price alone. If you are looking for a great mix of 3D, picture dynamics and a screen that everyone in the living room can view, this Panasonic is well worth checking out.
