The three highest end plasmas and LCD’s (in the opinion of Value Electronics) encompassing 55 to 65-inch displays from Panasonic, Samsung, LG, Sony, and Sharp’s new Elite were assembled in a darkened room and calibrated by a team of experts (using professional tools) over the course of 3 days. The calibrated displays were then judged by both consumers and experts.

The eighth annual Value Electronics flat panel shootout was held on May 19 and May 20 at in Scarsdale, NY.

The three highest end plasmas and LCD’s (in the opinion of Value Electronics) encompassing 55 to 65-inch displays from Panasonic, Samsung, LG, Sony, and Sharp’s new Elite were assembled in a darkened room and calibrated by a team of experts (using professional tools) over the course of 3 days.

The displays in this year’s contest were:

  • Panasonic TC-P65VT50
  • Samsung PN64E8000
  • LG 60PM9700
  • Elite PRO-60X5FD (last year’s shootout winner and first LED to win)
  • Samsung UN60ES8000
  • Panasonic TC-L47WT50

Dr. Larry Weber, who is widely considered the inventor of the plasma display, was in attendance where he gave a presentation and took questions from the audience.

Both experts and consumers independently judged the panels and registered votes after viewing a series of test patterns and content clips. Both groups chose the Panasonic VT50 as this year’s winner.
