Panasonic VIERA TC-P54Z1
Released January, 2009
The Pros:Large number of inputs available, enough for everything in the house. Sound is far above average for a stand-alone TV, very clear and can get very loud. Handles fast-moving subjects completely free of blur or stutter, picture remains sharp and precise at all times.
The Cons:Darker areas tend to become poorly defined, details get lost. MSRP puts it out of reach for most casual TV watchers.
