This review is from: Panasonic 47" 1080p LED-LCD 3D HDTV TC-L47ET5
Pros: This TV has exceeded my expectations in many ways! I wanted smart functionality for streaming services and a range video format support. Amaz on Prime, Hulu Plus, Netflix, Youtube, are all present out of the box! Ethernet connected, streaming in HD has been flawless. Native .mp4 .mkv .avi playback.
This a passive 3D TV, the glasses are not powered. The lens are polarized so each eye sees 540x1920 px per frame. That might not sound to good, but your brain puts the image back together in fine form! It looks great, the glasses are light and you get 4 pairs. Also, any 2D video source can be turned into 3D with some algorithmic trickery! Its a more subtle effect than a true 3D source, but a nice option. The 120hz rate is butter and looks awesome without the dreaded "soup opera" look. Without any pairing what so ever, the Panasonic remote controls navigation on my PS3! The android app is very slick with DLNA. You can "flick" your content to the TV and it just works. Also, HDMI has ARC!
Cons: Only con I can come up with is that the smart feature user interface is a bit dated. You are presented with a grid of nine boxes. Each box is an app of your choosing. Its really not that bad, but I have seen better interfaces.
Other Thoughts: This TV has exceeded my expectations on many levels. I have years of experience building computers and researching the advancement of audio visual technology. This set is a tight package full of valuable features. Speakers are fine, but who cares. Thin design with a relatively thin bezel. The LED panel has a matte finish so reflections are minimal but I think contrast suffers a bit from it. You'll definitely want to spend some time calibrating the picture to really make this TV shine!
