The EM60 series won't knock your socks off. Most low-end TVs don't.
11 September 2013
Excerpt: The TC-L39EM60 ($479.99) is an LED LCD display from one of Panasonic's lower 2013 rungs. The series comes in 39- and 50-inch varieties, featuring meat-and-potatoes television functionality without pricey frills like smart features and 3D technology.
Conclusion: With a fairly slim feature set and a budget feel to the overall design, we’d hoped to be knocked off our feet by the EM60’s picture quality. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case. Judder issues, inconsistent color, and poor sound gave a lackluster impression of Panasonic’s working-class model. We think thrifty consumers will be more satisfied with the LG LN5300 or the Vizio E-420i-AO because, while the EM60 has its moments, this fierce market demands better.
Pros: Clean and sharp image, Very little edge-light bleeding, Thin frame
Cons: Motion judder, Inconsistent color, Poor off-axis viewing, Awkward menu
