PANASONIC QUALITY!

Anonymous, Newegg
24 June 2007
  • Summary: I also own a Panasonic 42" plasma which looks more 3-D to me, but the overall Panasonic quality comes through in this LCD model as well. Seeing is believing. I purchased the open box version of this for considerably less and couldn't be more pleased.
  • Pros: Superior build quality, HDMI (x2) delivers a very satisfying picture, especially when viewing standard DVDs upscaled to 720p. Decent quality graphics/onscreen displays for things you see often like input names. The audio actually sounds good to me - you can adjust the treble, bass or add simulate...
  • Cons: No PC input - but an inexpensive DVI to Component adapter will work on your video card. Will not accept 1080p signals like some of the other 720p LCDs - but this probably wouldn't help much on a screen this size -26". (Yes, some displays actually look better with a signal higher than their native...

Its Amazing!

Anonymous, Newegg
7 June 2007
  • Summary: I have not yet used the HDMI connections so can't opine on that but Component and Compoiste inputs work great. Although two of each inputs would have been better instead of 1 Component and 3 Composites.
  • Pros: The Contrast Ratio and Brightness are just Amazing. The speakers are loud enough for a 26" TV (I put it in my Bedroom). Playing XBOX360 on this TV makes you feel like you are in Heaven!
  • Cons: Remote Control is definitely of poor quality. It feels cheap and buttons are hard to press. You also have to go through each input selection (6 total) to get to the desired screen, although you can label "skip" the ones you don't have plugged in. No automatic volume adjustment when surfing channe...

Outstanding Value!

  • Summary: This is last year (2006) model & for this price you simply can't go wrong! People must understand that 1st tier manufacturers like Sony, Panasonic, Samsung etc. need to compete with the Chinese built (cheaper) brands to sell units! So, there needs to be some corners cut.
  • Pros: Well...1st off I would like to mention that "Migpen" review is way off base. You can if fact turn off the "Active Light Control AI" Anyone who doesn't take the time to look @ the options within the menu doesn't have my vote! 2 HDMI's, Decent remote (really...it's a typical Panasonic remote), One ...
  • Cons: Hard to find any really. Maybe the remote buttons are a tad on the small side, but very usable. I use my DirecTV remore all of the time anyway. Can't comment on the OTA thru the TC-26LX600 because I'm using the OTA thru my D*TV H20 receiver.

A TV, NOT A MONITOR!

Anonymous, Newegg
29 September 2006
  • Summary: I bought this and an HDMI -> DVI convertor. This thing is a TERRIBLE (almost unUSEABLE) monitor! Nothing I could do helped it and I tried/ researched for a MONTH! But anyway it's an AWESOME TV for videos, games etc.
  • Pros: BRILLIANT picture (can't tell you but beleive me, I HAVE ^.^), EVERY option in the book and with subpixel management, EXCELLANT Viewing angles (seemed nearly 180 to me!), easy to get to connections.
  • Cons: The speakers are kinda 'dry' (but the sound system all together rocks! just use earphones ;p or the optical out), only 1 component, didn't come with ANY chords! (though the last guy just had a bad pull... it had it's manual and you CAN turn VideoAI on/ off... whether it works or not I don't know....

Poor engineering, poor quality

Douglas M., Newegg
25 August 2006
  • Summary: Mine came with the wrong manual (TC-26LX60). This is the worst purchase I have ever made.
  • Pros: Black cabinet. Good sound. Two HDMI inputs. No dead pixels. Detailed, highly adjustable picture.
  • Cons: Cheap remote with poor layout and extremely small buttons. The blackness level of the top 3/8 inch of the display constantly varies; this is worst under HDMI, but still present under other inputs. Panasonic includes an abysmal feature called Artificial Intelligence Picture. Apparently on LX600 mo...
