Hello guys, I need an opinion from specialists and this is why I am posting here. I want to make a tv upgrade in my living room. Now I have a 4 or 5 yrs old Panasonic plasma p42gt40 (afaik). I would like to buy a bigger tv, with a bit more tech inside (3D, bigger screen, improved panel etc.) Facts: - distance from me to tv approx 3 meters, that is 9 feet (give or take) - light environment - average during day cos I have curtains, so contrast ratio might not be an issue. I would like to continue with Panasonic, but Samsung is also ok. What is your advice between p55vt60 plasma and the new tx55as800 led? I know the bonus and malus of plasma vs led. For image quality I'd choose plasma, however the new tech gimmicks from the led tvs sound very appealing. On the other hand, I have in my appartment other SMART tv's but I don't think that I used the "smart" features more than 5 hours on aggregate in 1 year. The price (in Romania) is an advantage for the plasma (1400 EUR plasma against 1800 EUR the LED, that is approx a 600 USD difference). thanks a lot guys.
