-Hello, I'm Luke Westaway for CNET here at CES 2013 taking a look at Panasonic's flagship LED television. This is the WT60 series. Okay, this television comes in 2 sizes. You can have an either 47 inches or if that's not quite big enough it comes in a 55-inch model as well. Let's take a look at the design for a moment 'cause I really, really love this slim metallic Bezel and I'm particularly enamored I have to say with this gloss effect stand. It gives the TV a kind of floating effect. I think it's quite attractive. Something else to keep an eye on up here while we're speaking about design is this camera. This is a webcam that pops up so that you can do Skype chats and stuff using your TV and it should pop up automatically, which is good news and save you a few seconds of precious effort. In terms of display technology, we've got local dimming kicking off in here. We've also got Panasonic's Clear Panel Pro tech. Now, it has to be said the previous versions were a little bit touchy when it came to black levels, so it remains to be seen whether these new versions can impress us and win our hearts back. Else way, you get all the modern comforts of a swanky internet connected television, so you get Viera Connect which is Panasonic Smart TV system that if you're web browsing apps. We've already mentioned Skype. You'll see get voice interaction so you can bark orders to your television if it's not doing what you think it should. And you get Swipe and Share, which means you can theme video or photo, things like from your smartphone on to your television. So, an early thumbs up from me on the design. Let's hope that the pitch quality can measure up. There's no word on pricing, but it will be out around spring time so we don't have a very long to wait. I'm Luke Westaway for CNET and this is the Panasonic WT60 LED series.
The Parrot Boombox wireless Bluetooth speaker system ably combines elegant design, minimalist aesthetics, and better-than-average sound quality at an affordable price.
Asus reboots the Eee PC series (at least aesthetically) with this slick-looking metallic Netbook, the Eee PC 1018.
While its picture doesn't overcome the typical disadvantages of edge-lit LED LCDs, the excellent feature set and minimalist style of the Samsung UNC6500 series exhibit plenty of appeal.
The mainstream E series of LCD TVs by Vizio delivers decent picture quality, prolific Smart content and minimalist style.
The Panasonic E50 series is not a great example of an LCD television though it does offer a good number of features for the price.
Panasonic's KX-TG6400 cordless phone series isn't the slickest-looking DECT 6.0 system available, but the phones are solid performers with attractive feature sets--particularly the higher-end models.
If you can live with its homely design, the excellent picture quality and feature set of the Panasonic TC-PST30 series combine to make it one of the best plasma TV values available.
Panasonic's TC-PG20/25 series offers a highly tempting mix of features, value, and initial picture quality, but long-term black-level performance is still an open question.
The Panasonic GT50 Series will come in four sizes from 50 inches to 65 inches and ships with an "Infinite Black Pro" panel. The full-HD 3D panel features 2D-to-3D conversion and a new louver filter designed to provide better contrast in lit environments.
The Zvox Z-Base 575 sound bar gets loud and delivers deep bass from its unique pedestal design, but it's expensive and has a bare-bones feature package.
