Summary: This is a great big-screen television. It's not every living room that can accommodate a 50-inch screen, but if yours can, and you can afford it, then you should add the Panasonic to your wish list
Pros: Styling; great picture quality; decent range of video connections.
Excerpt: Sony's video division has staked its future on LCD and does not even sell plasmas. (For the high-end market it also offers SXRD TVs, a variant of LCoS technology.) Mitsubishi, on the other hand, has placed its bet on DLP. Many other manufacturers seem to be hedging their bets.
