2013 55" Plasma Models

Panasonic TC-P55ST60 Editor's Choice: Value
1080p 51" 3D Plasma TV

Panasonic's TC-P55ST60 stand to be one of the best value models for the 2013/14 year. The 55 inch size is represented in all but the ZT60 series this year. It is a competitive size class and the ST60 surely holds its own. It is equipped with a Full HD 1080p screen, an infinite black pro panel, 2500 focused-field drive, and the Viera Connect smart TV suite.

1080p 51" 3D Plasma TV

The VT60 has one of the nicest presentations of 3D material on the market for 2013. There is little to no crosstalk. The VT60 is THX certified for both 2D and 3D programming. What I like most about this is the THX picture mode settings are much better than a couple years ago, and they even have THX bright room mode which is entirely worth using.

The 600Hz sub-field drive in the TC-P55S60 handles fast action and side to side panning like the best of them. It lacks the 2500 focused-field drive of the ST60, but 600Hz is going to be enough to handle the needs of most programming.
