Panasonic 4K Life+Screen Television Eyes-On: Life After Plasma

Yesterday, Panasonic says that its new 4K LED Life+Screen TVs have picture quality that’s just as good as its recently murdered plasma line. I spent some time with the 85-incher. Plasma was wonderful, but everything’s gonna be OK. There can still be beauty.

A/V nerds breathed a sigh of achy nostalgia when Panasonic told the world a few months ago that it was killing plasma TV line. For all their inefficiencies, plasmas achieve beautiful picture quality some people say LED can’t match. The deep blacks! Please god, don’t kill those deep blacks!

One thing a 4K TV is always going to have over plasmas is detail. Like all 4k TVs, Panny’s Life+ TV is sharp. It’s a really stunning effect you get when you cram endless pixels into a screen.
