Pros: We have seen the best black levels in the market on this one (The Samsung F8500 is up there too), The Ultra Filter works wonders with bright room light, After getting the 3D settings right, 3D performance is excellent, Built-in THX Picture Setting modes are great presets, The number of available apps and load times, Very fast internet connection over Wifi, Side Angle Viewing, Gaming Mode helps to cut input lag and make for a good experience
Cons: Not considered a value model by any means, 2D to 3D Conversion is hard to watch, Voice/Smart Interaction (facial recognition), It's hard to find the extra value in the Touchpad remote, We would have like to see more HDMI inputs
Excerpt: The P55VT60 with its exceptional Infinite Black Ultra Panel and glass metal design can easily woo you into buying it. With a 3000 focused field drive the TV produces crisp, clean 2D motion pictures. However, the additional features like voice and facial recognition along with touch pad remote do not function as well. Overall, if your complete focus is on a commendable picture quality, the 55 inch VT60 is the best that is there in the market.
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
