Smart-Review Commentary: For 2013, Panasonic’s S60 Series offers a high quality plasma TV without 3D at a low price point. This is Panasonic’s lowest priced 1080p plasma tv. This set is internet ready and will allow you to access online movies, but does not have a web browser or social media access (if you require this, upgrade to the ST60 Series ). The set has a built-in wireless WiFi adapter, so there is nothing extra to buy. You can play media from a USB drive or camera by hooking up to the USB port, showing photos, movies, or playing music on the big screen. The S60 is DLNA compliant to allow you to use content from your PC and other devices on your TV. With VIERA Remote App Support, you can control your TV with your smartphone or tablet. We are impressed by the positive consumer/professional ratings on this TV. We also previewed this model at CES 2013 and it had excellent picture quality. The Panasonic TC-P50S60 is an amazing value for a very high quality 50-inch Plasma TV and is a Smart-Review Top Pick for 2013.
