Summary: The 47-inch Panasonic TX-L47ET50B has good Internet features and delivers satisfying images with both standard and high-definition content. It's also a strong 3D performer. However, sound quality isn't great and black levels could be deeper, especially considering the relatively high price.
Pros: Warm colours; Sharp standard-definition and HD images; Strong 3D performance; Good range of online service.
Cons: Sound is worse than last year's models; Expensive; Black levels could be slightly deeper.
Conclusion: Great 3D and an enticing VIERA Connect smart TV platform that’s easily the best looking around make this a great option for a family room. There is some bad stuff, though, with a poor viewing angle and low native contrast levels – and it only performs anywhere near its best with hi-def sources.
Pros: Crystal Frame design, immersive 3D effects, WiFi, Freeview HD, HD detail, FLAC file support
