The Bottom Line With picture quality on par with the best TVs we've ever tested, the Samsung PND7000 plasma represents an excellent value for videophiles who don't demand to own the top of the line. The midlevel price and outstanding quality of the Panasonic TC-PST60 series make it our strongest TV recommendation ever. The Panasonic TC-PS60 plasma TV's low price, high-end picture quality, and bare-bones Smarts make it one of the best values we've ever seen. The Vizio M-Series offers a potent combination of excellent design, decent picture quality, and a pocket-friendly price. The Samsung F5500 plasma offers great features and very good picture quality, but its performance suffers significantly under the lights.
