Panasonic just announced a "more affordable" 1080p 42" plasma for $1,799, and a 50-incher for $2,799. It's good news for the plasma camp, since 1080p has been where LCD makers have been hitting the price war hardest. The new Panasonic TH-42PZ77 is just $200 more than Westinghouse's notoriously well-priced 1080p 42-incher, while the Panasonic TH-50PZ77 is actually $200 less than the 52" Westinghouse. Performance-wise, you can bet Panasonic plasma will stomp all over any cheap LCD.
