You'll have to wait a bit for the high-end stuff, but the rest of Panasonic's sets are out this month.

Panasonic has plenty of HDTVs hitting the market this year, including the UT50 and XT50 plasmas as well as the E50 LED model which are all out this month. The ST50 and E50 offer a 1080p resolution and access to Viera Connect. All of the new sets can show you a 3D picture, but the XT50 does it in 720p.

The ST50, which is available now in 50" and 55" sizes with a new 60" model launching this month. The ST50 line offers the full package, including built-in Wi-Fi, Viera Connect, a 1080p resolution and 3D capabilities. There are a few features to improve the picture in there too, including the Infinite Black Pro panel, 2500 Focused Field Drive and fast switching phosphors. If you want to go even bigger with it, you'll be able to get a 65" model in April.

The ET5 series is a big move for Panasonic. It's the first polarized 3D TV the company is putting out and the 47" and 55" inch versions are available this month. You'll have to wait until April for the 42" model.
