Deals: Panasonic 58-, 50-, 42-inch Plasmas
Deals on high- and low-end plasma TVs.
When I wrote about the life left in plasma TVs, I called plasmas the bookends of the display market, representing the extreme low- and high-ends of the 40-inch-plus category.
But being at the extremes doesn’t mean you can’t find great bang for your buck.
The 58-inch TC-P58V10 plasma is at the top of the Panasonic food chain. 6ave.com, an authorized dealer, has the TC-P58V10 for just $2398 with free shipping after coupon code AFLPAN2398.
The 1080p set has a 600hz refresh rate, 40,000:1 native contrast ratio, and THX certification. And with 96Hz 1080p/24 processing and a bezel-less design, this is about as good as consumer-grade displays get (since Pioneer’s exit).
If 58 inches if too big, downsize to the 50-inch Panasonic Viera TC-P50U1 600Hz plasma for $999 plus $50 for shipping from NewEgg.
On the low end of the TV spectrum, Dell Home has the Panasonic TC-P42C1 for only $499 (less with a Dell Preferred Account). The 720p 42-inch display has a 15,000:1 native contrast ratio and 600Hz drive, making it an attractive alternative.
