TVs are getting cheaper and cheaper as the years go on; you don't have to spend $10,000 to find a large screen with good image quality and useful integrated features. For around the $2000 mark, you can buy yourself a surprisingly versatile plus-size TV. Panasonic's mid-range AS700A doesn't promise too much, but what it delivers is, by and large, pretty impressive.
