Plasma televisions are flat panel displays that provide a smooth liquid picture with high quality resolution and contrast ratios, as well as flexibility of placement, as they can be set on a table top or wall mounted. Plasma units offer exceptional value in large screens, because they are cheaper to produce than LCDs. Pioneer plasmas are some of the best built TVs available due to the high quality components and technical specifications of each unit. The PDP-5071PU is a 50-inch Pioneer plasma television with detachable speakers and multiple inputs to provide a great viewing experience.
