Image quality looked good on the floor, but we'll have to get it into our labs to be sure about that.

Tour & Design

**Front**

The TC-P54Z1 has a silver matte bezel on the top and bottom and a glossy black bezel on the two sides. On the left and right side of the TV are speakers.

The front of the TV integrates the gray boarders, gray speakers, and black bezel to create an impressive look

**Back**

The back of the TC-P54Z1 is actually featureless other than the mounting holes. All of the ports are on a separate box that the TV connects to wirelessly.

The back of the TC-P54Z1 is very plain.

**Sides**

The sides of the TC-P54Z1 are a mere 1-inch thick, which is impressive. Other than that impressive narrowness, however, there isn't anything noteworthy on the television's sides.

This side view is of the TV

facing forward. It's the inch-thick stripe

that's the lighter shade of gray. 

 

**Stand/Mount**

The TC-P54Z1 can either be mounted or sit on a swivel stand. 

 

Aesthetics

The TC-P54Z1 is an impressive-looking set. From the front it looks like an attractive TV, but add the remarkably thin profile and only a single cord, and its aesthetic appeal gets quite a boost.
