This Panasonic costs as much the 70-inch Sharp listed below, but it’s one of the best TVs CNET has ever reviewed, Katzmaier says. PCMag.com also says that it’s one of the best plasma TVs Panasonic has produced and places it on its top-ten list. Talk about bells and whistles: This 3-D HDTV has a built-in camera, built-in media player, voice control and built-in Wi-Fi so you can stream movies and browse the Web. It’s the picture quality, though, that makes this plasma TV stand out from the pack, Ramirez says. Panasonic has stopped making plasma TVs. So any bargain you can find on one of Panasonic’s highly rated plasmas is a good deal, he says. It’s on clearance at Best Buy, which has marked down the price by $500.
For $1,000 less, we found a quality Vizio E601i-A3 marked down to $800 from $1,000 at Target. You won’t get the same picture quality as with the Panasonic, but you’ll get a big TV for a much smaller price.
