Panasonic 1080p Plasma

Panasonic has officially announced its first 50-inch, full HD plasma display. While luxury plasmas such as Pioneer's Pro models and Panasonic's own 65-inch screen have been capable of a native 1080p resolution, the TH-50PF9UK signifies the first time a 50-inch plasma has achieved this sharper image for well under $10,000, according to the company. As with many other high-end plasma models, this newest display is intended as the centerpiece of a custom home theater and eschews built-in speakers, a stand, and integrated TV tuners in favor of wall mounting. Notably, HD-capable input is limited to component and DVI ports; an adapter is necessary for HDMI-equipped movie players and consoles. Panasonic is readying the 50PF9UK for a November release at a price of $5,995.
