Panasonic Viera TC-L47WT50 Smart 3D LED LCD HDTV Review

$2,299.00

Panasonic’s $2299 flagship LCD for 2012.

Introduction

The Panasonic Viera TC-L47WT50 (MSRP $2299) is Panasonic's flagship LCD for 2012. We reviewed their flagship plasma back in June, and it proved to be an excellent, if expensive, television. Since then, we've been excited to wrangle up the WT50 and run it through the obstacle course.

While there are no glaring flaws to be found, the L47WT50 didn't run the race with the same efficiency as the P65VT50. It's loaded with features, but its core performance--color accuracy, and contrast ratio--were average. We don't think Panasonic's asking too much, however. It's a good looking TV, and comes with 3D and Smart features. With no immediate drawbacks, the $2,299 MSRP seems mostly fair.
