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. The Samsung F5500 plasma offers great features and very good picture quality, but its performance suffers significantly under the lights. The Samsung E450 series plasma may not be perfect, but you won't find another TV that performs this well for this low a price.
