We review a lot of TVs here at CNET, but the list below represents only the best.
Officially unveiled at IFA in Berlin, the new AX900 series promises "the company's best picture performance" rivalling the TV tech for which Panasonic is best-known: plasma. Also announced was an 85-inch 4K TV and a step-down series of 4K sets.
The 55-inch LG 55EC9300 OLED and Samsung PN64F8500 plasma have been declared dual winners of the 10th annual TV Shootout by Value Electronics, beating out other LCD and OLED displays after a recount.
Following in the footsteps of Panasonic, Samsung says it will end production of plasma display panels by the end of this year.
Contrary to what the company indicated at CES, Samsung won't bring to market any new plasma TVs for 2014 -- aside from a single mainstream 64-inch model. That leaves the carryover F8500 as default champion of non-OLED picture quality.
The Consumer Electronics Show is all about TVs, and this year we expect the usual slew of announcements and buzzwords, as well as one conspicuous absentee: Panasonic plasma.
Although Panasonic's TX-P55VT65 and TX-P42ST60 each garnered five-star reviews as two of the best TVs we've seen all year, they mark the end of plasma.
Heading into the holiday season, this TV is our pick by virtue of its excellent picture quality for the money.
Plasma, LCD, OLED, or 4K? CNET's Brian Cooley breaks down the various screen technologies and offers advice on which TV you might want to buy.
Panasonic has confirmed that its excellent plasma-based televisions won't be available for sale after March 2014. If you were waiting to get a new TV, now's the best, and close to the last, time you can acquire one of our favorites.
The company will curtail production of plasma TVs displays this December and end the sale of plasma TVs to consumers.
