Samsung PN58B550


As much as we love plasmas' image quality here at CNET, there's no denying that they're power hogs . However, at CES 2009 we've seen several plasma manufacturers showing off new energy-efficient panels. Like Panasonic's NeoPDP plasmas, the Samsung PNB550 series of plasmas claim to consume nearly 50 percent less energy compared to past models. Here are the full details.Minimize


LG 60PS60


The 60PS60's THX Display Certification ensures exceptional viewing experiences, while 600Hz Sub-Field Drive technology reproduces video with heightened realism by flashing the plasma panel's pixels 10 times for each frame of TV or movie content. Four HDMI inputs and two HD component video inputs give you multiple options for getting HD video to the full HD 1080p panel. While Clear Voice II technology enhances movie and TV dialogue, an Invisible Speaker system lends this LG plasma panel a more compact, less obtrusive footprint.Minimize


Samsung PN58C7000


Samsung's C7000 Series plasma flat panel HDTVs deliver stunning performance, unparalleled design, and several innovations that expand the HDTV experience with its 3D feature. Samsung's E3-Panel combined with our Clear Image Panel technology provides a stunning high contrast picture at any angle.


Samsung PN63C7000


If you're looking for a home-theater, home-office, all around home-entertainment plasma package, Samsung's C7000 series will not disappoint. As a matter of fact, it can't possibly disappoint because that what it was built for.
