Summary: The Panasonic VT60 has one of the best pictures of any TV we've ever reviewed, and matches the best-ever in dark rooms.
Pros: The Panasonic VT60 produces the second-best picture quality of any TV we've ever reviewed, equal to or better than our in-house Pioneer Kuro reference and surpassed only by the ZT60; exceedingly deep black levels and excellent shadow detail; well-saturated colors and excellent skin tones; industry-leading sound quality; extensive features including touch-pad remote, voice control, and onboard camera.
Cons: Extremely expensive; worse bright-room picture than that of the Samsung F8500; somewhat humdrum design; camera is limited, and facial recognition is a gimmick.
Conclusion: The VT60 is a marvel in engineering and Panasonic deserves a huge pat on the back for producing such a quality product. Although it lacks the bright-room performance abilities of its more expensive cousin, you’d never know the difference in a dark room. That it comes in a little less expensive than the ZT60 is also pretty compelling, though there’s no getting around the fact that we’re talking about an expensive TV here. Yes, the VT60 is expensive.
Pros: Exceptional Black Levels, Superb Shadow detail, Very bright, Excellent Color, Customizable homescreens, Backlit remote
Cons: Expensive, Not as strong in bright rooms as ZT60, Runs very warm
