I only say to avoid them for those that hook up a PC and use it like a monitor. Or gamers. Nod to the one with the best picture in store and take my advice and go deaf on any Smart TV feature. The makers are not ready yet. Plenty of examples if you want them.
I am going to purchase a 55 in. TV. I originally planned on a Samsung or LG LED. I pick up Consumer Report and they recommend the Panasonic(plasma) ST50. They state it has the best picture quality. CNET also ranks it #1. Best Buy will sell it for $1200. I thought plasmas were fading out. I would appreciate any recommendations.
