so far so okay-ish, but viewing angle is limited,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Panasonic TX-L39E6B 39-inch Full HD 1080p Smart LED TV with Built in Wi-Fi and Freeview HD (Electronics)
So far have only viewed TV channels (standard definition) as this was purchased as a 2nd TV for the kitchen..
- wireless set-up took 20 seconds and couldn't be easier
- haven't made much use of the 'Smart' functions but watched some news clips using the BBC app and it worked fine
- thin silver frame makes it look small and neat (so glad i went for the 39inch vs. 32inch)
!! viewing angle seems to be quite sensitive !!
This might be normal for LCD/LED TVs nowadays? but (being a plasma man) i'm finding it hard to get used to. As you move left or right off-centre, the skin tones change almost immediately, and then as you move further off-centre, screen starts to 'white-out' subtly. I repeat, this might be normal for (budget?) LCD/LED TVs, but is something to be aware of.
If you're going to be sat directly in front of the TV, then it shouldn't be an issue, but anyone sitting off-centre is not going to be seeing colours correctly.
Not sure if the competition suffers from similar issue. Try to compare some TVs side by side if you can.

The E6 uses a VA panel which always have poor viewing angles. The exception is the 32" E6 which has an IPS panel which gives much better viewing angles. LG use IPS in their sets. For a kitchen TV which will probably be viewed at times from different angles I would recommend going with an IPS panel!

It is my understanding that the 32" E6 also uses an MVA panel, thus accounting for it's excellent black levels.

Thank you I was trying to explain this to my mum, albeit the less techy version, i.e. "The Panasonic looks funny when you move your head off centre but the LG looks okay, unless you really move off centre but it has to be a lot more before it looks as funny as the Panasonic."
The crazy jazzy Panasonic reaction to pattterned ties (LG didn't go crazy like the Panasonic) really clinched it for me.

On the look out for a new TV and was considering LED/LCD and moving from plasma. This and the blur has convinced me to stay with plasma. Sit about ten feet away so a £309 X60 seems a better deal.

This refers to the 39 inch model, but the model on sale is the 32 inch!
