How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

The ET60 is the LCD counterpart to Panasonic's popular plasma lineup, making it a suitable option for those looking for Panasonic's plasma performance packaged in an LCD panel. In testing the ET60, TelevisionInfo says "content looks fantastic," and PC Mag felt the same, saying "picture quality was sharp and noise-free." Even though most felt the picture quality was good, Trusted Reviews says they "never completely felt satisfied" with black levels, even after some tweaking. If you're looking for a LCD set, the ET60 is a good option with its top notch image quality, but you might need to spend a little on some decent speakers since What Hi-Fi said it delivers that "familiar, poor quality TV sound."
