Although Panasonic's TH-46PZ85U didn't strike CNET
reviewers as being quite as sexy as the recently critiqued Samsung PN50A550
, it managed to hold its own in the all-important area of image quality. For starters (because we know you're rummaging through looking for this very fact right now), critics found that this particular PDP "exhibited the deepest shade of black [they had] seen from any Panasonic plasma, deeper than any display [they had] reviewed except for the Pioneer
and the OLED-based Sony XEL-1
." As for color accuracy, it did seem to lag behind other rivals, but its anti-reflective screen was noticeably better than most. Overall, the panel managed to impress -- but not floor -- the eagle-eyed reviewers that were watching intently, but if you've been toying with the idea of ordering this very unit for your own living room, why not give the linked review a read through before pulling one trigger or the other?
