    My guess is no one here has a clue about either model and neither do I. Ask this question over on avforums.com It's British site and very friendly and knowledgeable. I visit there Wii section and also had help on a couple of purchases, mini dv cam and plasma advice.

    Dude definitely get the top one. That looks sweet. And it looks like a good deal too from what I've seen on eBay and stores like Best Buy, Target, etc. Hopefully I can save up some money real soon to get it.

    to be honest i agree with sparc, in the fact that most people dont know whats going on...

    people are saying the first one.....fine, but when they are saying the first one 'cos it looks nice', well so does the second one, and looks are only opinions anyway.

    if you look at the specs, which are what actually matter here (unless you like the looks alot more and have a superficial view on this sort of thing...) you will see the samsung is actually the better tv. the panasonic has a contrast ratio of 1200:1, samsung has 5000:1. thats a big difference, you will see quite a difference in pictures that have dark areas of the screen, or just contrasting colours, which alot of games would have....

    the samsung doesnt have an inbuilt digital tuner, so if you wanted to watch freeview for example, it would mean running a freeview box. (or if you had sky this wouldnt matter anyway)

    i have an older version of the samsung, with the built in freeview, and i cannot complain against a single thing about it. i have also looked at the panasonic in stores with a variety of different sources, and there is nothing wrong with it.

    both are good tvs, and at the same price its kind of up to you, and nobody else really.

    as an aside i would probably aim to buy from amazon, as play have been shelling out a lot of grey import tvs...

    anymore questions just shout

    and for the record, i think the samsung looks nicer

    In my opinion the Samsung is a better TV. Personally I do not think Panasonic makes a good television.
