"Best LED picture I've seen"5.0 starson by SolusDog
Pros: Picture quality
Cons: Better compatibility with Mac OS X. However, Apple TV fills the gaps.
Summary: I went out to buy a new LED TV. I expected to buy a Samsung, but was prepared to be talked into a Sony. I went to four stores and ended up with the Panasonic DT50 - 47 inch. When I saw the picture, I was wowed. The demo was sourced from a BluRay player, which made me suspicious. So, I did some Google research. I found two reviews stating that this is probably the best LED TV for 2012. Then I saw this review... I went back to the store with this TV for another demo. At this point, I was down to this TV and a Samsung. I asked them to connect the two TVs to the same cable TV source (shared by at least 10 TVs). No question, the DT50 had the best picture.
I now have the TV home and could be happier.
So why the negative review by CNET? My first guess is that they received a defective unit. The conspiracy side of me suspects that the reviewer has a bone to pick with Panasonic (lol). Whatever it may be, I recommend that CNET takes a second look at this TV.
