Has a Built-In Camera

The Panasonic TX-L42ET60 has a built-in camera. Most of the other mid-size TVs that were released more than two years ago do not have a built-in camera.

We compared this TV to all the other TVs with a wi-Fi and we think the TX-L32E30[pl_30112_price], and the TX-42ASW654[pl_2252496_price] both from Panasonic or the Samsung UE40H6470[plb_2233881_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

ET60 er blant de rimeligste modellene fra Panasonic, men har til tross for dette et stramt og lekkert design, og en gjennomgående god bildekvalitet. I denne runden går seieren likevel til...

Exceptionally natural picture performance
Userfriendly interface
Good value
Slim, stylish
Great new home screen options
Native contrast could be better
Some key video streaming services are missing
Remote control a bit old school
Black levels lack depth and solidity
Backlight not perfect
