Excerpt: The Panasonic VT60 series of plasma HDTVs deliver a stunning picture with bold colors and inky blacks. Features are abundant, but these screens don’t come cheap. (4 out of 5) Pros Very dark blacks Rich, accurate colors Generous feature set Cons Expensive Only three HDMI ports Screen could be brighter It wasn’t long ago that
Pros: Very dark blacks, Rich, accurate colors, Generous feature set
Cons: Expensive, Only three HDMI ports, Screen could be brighter
Conclusion: The TC-P60VT60 is simply an exceptional performer that produces a gorgeous reference-quality image, with very deep blacks, rich contrast, great detail and accurate color. To top it off, the TV is loaded with worthwhile features, including the excellent VIERA Connect platform, built-in WiFi, an integrated camera, support for Bluetooth peripherals, and the inclusion of two pairs of active 3D glasses.
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.
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
Panasonic's VT60 is sure to sweep the home theater market, and nestle into story, into legend.

Conclusion: There are a handful of reasons not to buy a TV in the VT60 series. It's either A) too expensive; B) too big; or C) you work for Vizio. Otherwise, we really can't express just how great this thing looks. To be honest, there are better smart TVs out there. LG's G3 series and Samsung's flagship both do the smart thing with a little more flexibility and crispness than the VT60—though its pop-up camera and Touch Pad remote do make it a formidable competitor.
