    Thanks for posting. The PZ800 looks good but Panasonic tc-p54s1 is also a better option. Panasonic tc-p54s1 has a decent look. It has glossy black exteriors. People will be mostly attracted by the thin silver strip at the bottom of the TV. The picture quality is good but not excellent. Performance wise, its good but could have been better. The only drawback of plasma TV is the high consumption of power. The price is reasonable and not very expensive. People who are looking for a TV under a small budget, this is a good option.
