Best 60-Inch Plasma TVs

Updated on May 12, 2009

60 Inch Plasma TV

Everyone wants a big screen TV but no one wants to pay the price... Well, I'm sorry but in order to get the best picture quality, features, and overall TV, you're going to have to pay a pretty penny. The one thing that you want to make sure that you do is that you don't jump on the cheapest plasma TV price that you can find.

You want to do a little research and compare the features before you just bring a random TV home. You don't want to find that you've spend $1,500 or more on a 60 inch plasma TV with horrible color, very little black levels, and few inputs/outputs. Compare the options and find the TV that will have the most impact on your viewing pleasure and the one that has the most features that you're looking for. Just because the one on the left has tons of features, it doesn't mean that's the plasma that you need.

When looking for the best 60 inch plasma TV, you want to consider at least one of the following three plasmas, although you will find that there are more than just these three that can be considered the better 60 inch plasma TVs.

Pioneer PDP-6020FD 60-Inch Plasma HDTV

The Pioneer PDP-6020FD is pretty impressive with very deep black color levels and an amazing picture quality. Usually the larger the screen the worse the picture quality, but in this case, it's nearly spot on.

The Pioneer 60 inch Plasma doesn't have the extra features that some of the other Pioneer models have, but this makes it less expensive, making it more affordable. And, with the picture quality, it's definitely worth it.

The PDP-6050FD has a 1920 x 1080p resolution with progressive image reproduction. It has the ability to accept 480i/480p/720p/1080i/1080p signal, and a detachable bottom speaker and a fully integrated digital amplifier.

This fully integrated flat panel design is thinner than the previous Pioneer plasmas.

LG 60PG30 60-Inch Plasma HDTV

The LG 60PG30 may be a little expensive but its slim and elegant design, as well as full HD 1920 x 1080p resolution and advanced scanning.

There are tons of inputs and outputs on the rear and side of the TV, included 3 HDMI inputs and a PC input that lets you access videos on your computer.

The LG 60PG30 has an invisibie speaker system with Dolby Digital decoding and Clear Voice technology which offers a crisp audio sound.

The LG 60PG30 even meets the Energy Star requirements, which is perfect for the environmentally conscious.

Panasonic TH 65PZ850U - 65" VIERA Plasma TV

Although the Panasonic TH 65pz850U is really a 65 inch plasma, it's still one of the best 60 inch TVs. It's black color levels are some of the deepest and best that you'll find, but the overall quality isn't the best. In general, for those who want a big TV, the Panasonic TH65PZ850U will do the trick.

One of the cool feature is the game mode, that will definitely appeal to gamers. It minimizes the lag time when displaying the game images.

For the overall price of the 60 inch plasma TV, the Panasonic TH65PZ850U is a good deal since you get slightly better than average picture quality, really nice black levels, and a whopping 65 inches of flat panel screen.
