10 best flatscreen and LCD TVs

Panasonic Viera TH-50PZ800 50-inch plasma TV for £1,600

The Panasonic TH-50PZ800 is a tantalising prospect.

It's currently the brand's flagship 50in plasma TV and should be something truly special, if its impressive recent screens are anything to go by.

Unsurprisingly, the screen is formidably featured. Four v1.3 HDMI inputs instantly hit the right groove and these are joined by plenty of other useful in and outputs including a PC port and a digital audio output.

High-end status is further confirmed by its full HD resolution and its picture processing suite.

Heading up this processing is the top-level V-Real 3 Pro system, with its high-powered focus on reducing noise levels, adding fine detail, enhancing colour tones and saturation and boosting contrast.
