    I have just started looking for a new plasma TV (50") and have read many stories on the forums about how bad standard definition TV looks on these big screens. The family watches lots of non-high-def TV, so is there a make/model/technology that I should look for in a 50" plasma to make standard def tolerable?

    Thanks in advance.

    Chris - if they are willing to sacrifice HDTV they could purchase a plasma EDTV. These sets have a native resolution of 720 x 480p, and do an excellent job displaying SD because no scaling is involved (640 x 480 for SD broadcasts). Panasonic makes very good EDTV plasma's.

    No one makes a 50 inch ED plasma that I know of. Alon, if you know of one, please post it here.

    The Panasonic TH-50PX60U does as good a job with SD as any plasma.
