Good HDTVs aren't always good-looking. You can have a bright and colorful screen capable of reaching inky blacks while not being visually stunning in its design. As more features become available in less expensive HDTVs, it's design flourishes that become part of the justification for premium prices. The Panasonic TC-L47DT50 is an ideal example of this premise. At $1,899.99 (direct), this 47-inch, LED-edgelit LCD HDTV is more expensive than our budget Editors' Choice, the 55-inch Vizio M3D550KD ($1,429.99, 4 stars), but offers a similar feature set. What you get for the extra $500: active-shutter 3D, a better-than-average sound system, and one of the prettiest bezels we've seen on an HDTV yet. DesignSimply stated: The L47DT50 is gorgeous. Its bezel is constructed of metal with a glass overhang on the bottom edge that houses a glowing Panasonic logo in the middle its transparent surface. The design is clean and a refreshing change from the usual black bezel on most HDTVs. Behind the bezel, the right edge holds the standard power, input, channel up/down, and volume up/down buttons, and four HDMI inputs and two USB ports are lined up behind the left edge.
One of my favorite reviews of all time was for a David Lee Roth solo record from the 90's called "A Little Ain't Enough." In reference to the title, and the quality of the record, the music reviewer replied with just two words. Just two. Unfortunately there cannot just be a single, pithy one-liner for the Panasonic DT50 LCD TV, but it can't be all that bad, right? My words, as were the Rolling Stone reviewer's at the time, are: "Wanna bet?" Panasonic offers LCD TVs in order to appeal to plasma-phobes, but for a TV as expensive and poorly performing as the DT50, I've got to wonder if the effort is worth it. The DT50 is plagued by poor black levels and an uneven color response, which makes it difficult to watch in a dark room. Conversely, its glossy screen means that in a well-lit room it's too reflective to enjoy completely. On the upside the TV does come with a full complement of video apps, and the 3D performance is better than our current 2D star, the (plasma) Panasonic ST50. But this is where it stops. The ST50 is just so damned good I can't see why you'd pass it over to get this TV. The 55-inch DT50 is a full $1,000 more expensive (!) than the identically sized ST50 and yet performs worse than even a $500 TV like the TCL L40FHDF12TA.
