It's massive and the contrast of the picture is amazing. Terrific sound quality. Easy to set up. A killer TV for the money.

|Our Overall Rating:|
You know exactly what you’re getting when you purchase a plasma from Panasonic; a TV with absolutely stunning picture quality. What sets apart the TC-P60UT50 from earlier models is the improved 600Hz technology which allows pixel switching, this means frames are shorter allowing for much clearer and smooth picture motion.
What is most surprising is how deep the black levels are, as it is not one of the most expensive TVs in the 60 inch range but it produces black levels like it was. This gives the television astounding picture detail, even when showing very dark and dim pictures. The color accuracy is also fantastic, even without any tweaking or custom calibration.
The TC-P60UT50 doesn’t perform well in bright rooms though, due to a lack of light filter which causes a slight reduction in quality of the black levels. Obviously this is not a problem if you’re planning on using it in a dark room or are willing to watch with curtains closed, but it is something to consider.
The Panasonic VIERA TC-P60UT50 allows you to watch 3D content in 3D and it also allows you to convert standard 2D content into 3D. Their True-To-Life technology makes the quality of the 3D conversion as high as possible, by reducing the amount of cross talk and blur as much as possible.
It also uses 24p Cinema Smoother technology which drastically reduces motion blur and jerkiness, which means that pictures are smooth and natural. Unfortunately it does not come with 3D glasses so you’ll have to buy them separately if you want to view in 3D. However the two built-in USB ports make charging your 3D glasses really easy.
The TC-P60UT50 does not come Wi-Fi ready so you will need to buy a wireless adapter separately or you can use an Ethernet cable. Once you’ve connected your TV to the internet, there are a huge amount of apps and online services that you can access straight away.
Some of the most popular and most useful include Netflix (great for films and TV shows), Twitter, Facebook and even Skype which can be used whilst watching live television. You don’t need to worry about memory or hard drives either, because any app or service downloaded won’t be stored on your television, though you can access it whenever you like.
The VIERA TC-P60UT50 comes with two HDMI inputs, which isn’t ideal if you have one or more games consoles plus a Blu Ray player or similar devices. It has a pre-configured game mode that reduces the amount of lag from the connection of your games console to the television, it does make a slight difference and we’d definitely recommend using it.
The power consumption for the VIERA TC-P60UT50 is relatively low compared to other TVs in the 60 inch range, it has an average power consumption of 139W, which would cost you anywhere from $20 to $40 per year in electrical bills depending on usage.
