- Samsung 60" Plasma 1080p HDTV for $728-799 in-store
Walmart stores are currently selling a Samsung PN60F5300 60-inch Plasma 1080p 600Hz 2.2-inch thin HDTV for between $728 and $799 in-store.
Inventory and prices are store dependent, and you can check inventory and order online with in-store pickup.
This has always been considered a budget plasma since its release in 2013, but does have pretty good reviews.
Most manufacturers have discontinued plasmas or are planning to discontinue making Plasma televisions.
Plasmas are expensive to make, consume more energy than LCD/LED, and sometimes produce a slight buzzing sound.
Plasma TVs also weigh more than LED/LCD (this particular model weighs 65 pounds), and the heavier weight means it costs sellers more money to deliver their product to stores and homes.
However, many people still love the plasma displays because they display true black color, whereas a LCD screen cannot.
LCD screens (even the ones that claim to be "LED" screens) do have bulbs which light up the pixels with a constant glow, and while LED-lit screens can improve the deepness of the black levels over standard LCD, a true TV enthusiast will probably see the blacks are not truly black.
So if you love the way plasma looks, this could be a good deal for you.
Otherwise, it may be best to invest in newer technology such as LED-backlit displays, or even wait a couple years for OLED screens to become affordable.
Few will want a plasma once OLED screens hit become more affordable, so selling a used plasma on Craigslist may be very difficult.
