                Comments about Panasonic 42" VIERA S1 Series Black Plasma Flat Panel HDTV:

                Now that Pioneer has stopped producing televisions, Panasonic televisions are the best on the market. Go to [@] and see how highly regarded these televisions are. Plasmas have the best picture quality, motion, and black levels. Also, they do not have burn-in issues any longer. Nor do they burn out before LCDs. In fact, this television has a 100,000 hour life, where most LCDs have a 60,000 hour life. Consequently, this is clearly the best television on the market.
