The Bottom Line Panasonic's DT50 series of LED TVs is among the worst we've seen this year, and can't hold a candle to the company's plasmas. The midlevel price and outstanding quality of the Panasonic TC-PST60 series make it our strongest TV recommendation ever. Class-leading quality from off-angle can't excuse the expensive Panasonic TC-LWT50's disappointing picture when seen from the sweet spot. The Vizio M-Series offers a potent combination of excellent design, decent picture quality, and a pocket-friendly price. The midlevel price and outstanding quality of the Panasonic TC-PST60 series make it our strongest TV recommendation ever.
