Panasonic TC-PZT60 series
After many years, can the mighty-yet-defunct Pioneer Kuro finally have a rival for picture quality? The Panasonic ZT60 finally promises to "outblack" the Kuro (Japanese for black) with a lot of the same technology but presumably five years of refinement. Look out for a review very soon!

The good: The Panasonic TC-PZT60 series plasma TV can produce the best all-around picture quality available; deepest black levels in its class; highly accurate color; excellent video processing, off-angle viewing and screen uniformity; best-in-class preservation of contrast and reduction of reflections under bright lights; very good 3D picture; classic styling; plenty of Smart TV content; includes two pair of 3D glasses.
The bad: Exceedingly expensive; not as suited to extremely bright rooms as the Samsung F8500 plasma or LED LCD TVs; identical picture quality to the Panasonic VT60 in a dark room; consumes more power than LED LCD TVs.
The bottom line: For those who can afford it, the Panasonic TC-PZT60 comes closer than any TV yet to picture-quality perfection.
