Best plasma TVs(Updated November 26, 2013 11:24 PM PST)
The first kind of flat-panel TV to hit the market more than 10 years ago, plasma displays have come a long way since then. They're much more durable now, and the burn-in bugaboo is pretty much a thing of the past. Plasma TVs are not generally available in sizes less than 42 inches, and their picture quality in the best models still outperforms the best LCD picture quality -- although the gap is closing. However, plasmas are much less efficient than LCD TVs. Check out plasma versus LCD for more information.
Plasma industry leader Panasonic has announced it will no longer make plasma TVs in 2014, making many of the most highly-rated models below the last of their kind. If you're shopping for a new TV now, consider picking one up while they last.
