Just when we thought plasma screens were going the way of the dodo (we're looking at you, Pioneer and Vizio), Samsung shows its commitment to the platform with the LED-backlit 850 and 858 PAVV. These slim screens repent the sins of their plasma predecessors, delivering extra-crispy 1080p video while weighing 20% less and using 40% less energy than those traditionally power-hungry forebears.
It's nearly as thin and beautiful as that couple of lovely models fawning all over it — so gaunt they're calling this line of TVs "Finger Slim" — which in the real world amounts to 29mm or 1.15 inches from front to back. Take your pick of a 50- or 58-inch version (opt for the latter because size really does matter), but we'll throttle our lust until Samsung announces pricing.
