Best Value TV of 2012: Panasonic TX-P42ST50
The Panasonic TX-P42ST50 proves you don’t have to spend £1000 to get a world-class TV. At launch, it was the cheapest way to get hold of a NeoPlasma TV – using Panasonic’s latest panel technology. TVs like this demonstrate that if you’re after cinematic-looking, natural images rather than the punchy super-bright look of LCD, plasma is still the only way to go for a budget buyer.
