The Bottom Line 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 midlevel price and outstanding quality of the Panasonic TC-PST60 series make it our strongest TV recommendation ever. Charging the right price for a very good picture, Panasonic's E60 LED LCD is one of the best values available among midrange TVs. 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.
