At a Glance

You should expect a lot out of a $2,500 HDTV. The top-of-the-line Panasonic P55VT50 plasma has very good picture quality, but we've seen comparable performance and features in lower-priced TVs.

Price when rated: $2,500.00

Pros

  • Media playback from SD cards, USB devices, and DLNA
  • Thorough in-set help menus and downloadable manual
  • THX-certified playback mode
  • Very good picture quality

Cons

  • Expensive
  • Active-shutter 3D glasses aren't included with the set
  • Uses a lot of power
