Going for the big kahuna? The 1080p Panasonic 55-inch Plasma TV ($1,150) is truly high definition. Plasmas burn more energy and don't last as long as LCD displays, but for the TV shopper bent on viewing quality, this 55-inch Panasonic is sure to please. It has tons of features, including an interactive dashboard and a high-quality sound system.
The TV's three HDMI ports and SD slot for external media boxes might not be necessary here because the WiFi-enabled ST50 has tons of apps built in. With eight mini-dome speakers and a small subwoofer, audio wasn't an afterthought for the designers of this Panasonic TV. If you're thinking big, go with this model.
