Review: Panasonic Viera P55VT50 is an imperfect, pricey plasma TV

At a Glance
  • Panasonic Smart Viera TC-P55VT50 55-Inch Plasma HDTV

    TechHive Rating

    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.
