Panasonic may be getting out of the plasma TV business, but among its remaining models are some of the best deals around. Right now, Sears is selling one of the company's 42-inch Viera models with a 1080p display and smart TV functionality, including support for Hulu and Netflix, for only $399.99 — down $330 from its list price. The set wasn't a bad deal before the discount, and it's unquestionably a good deal now. While many consumers may have been scared off of plasma TVs because of issues with earlier models, like screen burn-in, newer generations have just about done away with this and often offer wider viewing angles and deeper blacks than LCD panels.
