The Pioneer Elites are better plasmas than the Panasonics.. With that being said, Panasonics plasmas are amazing for the price, BUT, the Pioneers do look better, BUT, the price can be rediculous..
Best plasmas on the market are made by Pioneer, Fujistu, LG, Hitatchi.. i you have ever been to a show and seen their high end models you will not claim the panasonic is the best plasma on the market.
Panasonic makes the best plasma for "the consumer" and its a damn good plasma as well.
Im pretty sure consumer reports rates their products for best all around INCLUDING PRICE... that is why you do not see pioneer towards the top, and that is why you do not see Fujitsu on there at all.
The magazine is called Consumer Reports, not, Best of the Best
