Panasonic TX-L50E6 Review - Sound Quality and Conclusions Review

Sections

We hadn’t expected much from the L50E6’s speakers given how incredibly slim its body is. However, to our surprise it turns out a quite well rounded, convincing soundstage thanks to an open, expansive mid-range and the ability to render treble details without sounding harsh.

There isn’t really any deep bass, but the openness of the mid-range does a good job of hiding this.

The L50E6 doesn’t ship with a special touch-pad or point-and-click remote to go with its snazzy My Home Screen interface, which is a bit of a shame. Especially as the standard remote feels a little dated in its layout and approach. On the upside, though, the Panasonic TV Remote 2 app for iOS and Android provides a pretty handy touchscreen control alternative.

With its affordable price and good contrast the L50E6 is a potentially attractive gaming monitor. However, while its core sharpness and contrast worked well with our gaming sources, our input lag measurement of around 55ms is a bit higher than we’d like it to be, and could slightly impact your performance with timing- or reaction-based games.

Provided you’re not still holding a flame for 3D, the L50E6 deserves to be added to your audition list. It’s better in most ways than most of its rivals at this level of the market, and doesn’t do anything seriously wrong – even it also doesn’t do anything truly spectacular.

Its strongest competition is either significantly smaller (the Samsung UE46F6500) or else a less-impressive-in-a-bright-room plasma screen in the shape of either the (slightly more expensive) Panasonic P50ST60 or (slightly cheaper) Samsung PS51F5500.

So long as you’re not bothered about 3D, the L50E6 is a good all-round big-screen LCD TV with surprisingly little high-quality direct competition.
