Nonetheless, the Viera TH-50PZ850U is Panasonic's flagship, and that alone may snag customers who are not price sticklers that look for the top of the line product. The Panasonic Viera TH-50PZ850U can currently be purchased from anywhere between $2,345...

While two of the three other sets in the group outperformed it overall, the Panasonic held its own, particularly at its price. It received the highest score for value, which strongly suggests that the panel, overall, liked what it saw.

The Panasonic/THX collaborationproves to be a good one. The TH-50PZ800U is an excellent performer thatrivals the best panels on the market but comes in at a slightly lowerprice point.
