Bigger displays, better picture resolutions, cheaper prices…there‘s something to be said for sitting on an large electronics purchase decision, until conditions are just right. If you know your purchase isn’t going to be the first on the block, but it will be the best value or the best tested; than you’re the type of shopper that likes waiting for that quintessential moment when…better and cheaper is a reality. Bigger only comes into play where desired as in HDTV’s and computer displays. How does 50inches sound? Consumer Reports announced yesterday the independent lab’s test results for flat screen plasmas and LCD’s. The Panasonic sets faired quite well overall and the Panasonic 50-inch TH-50PZ700U flew off with “Best Flat Screen Ever”, never has Consumer Reports bestowed this honor to a flat screen, the Panasonic 50-inch TH-50PZ700U scored big on the “full HD” 1920x1080/1080p resolution capabilities. This drove the high rating from testers. They noted the color clarity and the richness of the immersion experience with the Panasonic 50-inch TH-50PZ700U. It scored high even when displaying in broadcast or DVD picture quality. So, flat panel shoppers measure up that wall above your old CRT TV and call the city to schedule your recycling date, because the time has come my frugal friend. Can’t you almost hear you’re friends whining when you hit the power switch and have to kick them out?
