The Bottom Line Although it's cheaper than Samsung's ultrathin edge-lit models, the EH6000 series's value proposition is hurt by mediocre picture quality. 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 E series offers picture quality nearing the more expensive M series and is a very good choice if you value its Smarts and styling. The midlevel price and outstanding quality of the Panasonic TC-PST60 series make it our strongest TV recommendation ever.
