There a few non-3D plasmas this year. Since 3D is a pretty standard feature nowadays (you don't pay extra for it), non-3D models are of the lower-end designation.
Panasonic TC-P50U50: 50"
Samsung PNxxE530: 51", 60" - This model uses a Pentile subpixel arrangement and tends to look slightly jagged
LG PA5500/6500: 50:, 60"
The Panasonic will tend to look the best out of the three, but only comes in 50". If you step up to Panasonic's next model, the UT50, you get a choice of 55". Step up to the ST50 and you get a really effective anti-glare filter.
Note that any of the non-3D models have no AR filter and will glare like crazy under the right conditions, especially the LG.
