Has a Built-In Camera

The Panasonic TX-55AS740 has a built-in camera. Most of the other TVs of this spec and age do not have a built-in camera.

We compared this TV to all the other TVs with a built-in camera and we think because of their better review scores, the UN55ES8000F, and the ES8000 both from Samsung are also worth considering.
