    hi all. cant decide which tv to go with. I have never owned a Panasonic or lg tv so have experience with neither. only Panasonic products ive owned have been car stereos, which have been excellent. 0 experience with lg.
    Panasonic link: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Panasonic---55%26%2334-Class-(54-5/8%26%2334-Diag.)---LED---1080p---120Hz---Smart---3D---HDTV/4860489.p?skuId=4860489&id=1218555767418#tab=specifications
    lg: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/LG---55%26%2334%3B-Class---LED---1080p---120Hz---3D---HDTV/6899915.p?skuId=6899915&id=1218811910853#tab=specifications
    from what I can tell, they both seem to be very close in specs. the only difference that I can see is that the Panasonic has wireless capability, which isn't a big deal considering I have a spool of cat-5 that I can run freely from my router. there is also the "contrast ratio" which is 4000000:1 on the lg, and only 2000000:1 on the Panasonic. also, the lg is roughly 5/8" thinner than the panasonic
    anyone have experience with either tv? or just opinions? honestly, I bought both tvs last night online for the thanksgiving sales, I purchased the Panasonic first (899.99 shipped) but then I found the lg (989.99 - comes with soundbar, which I do not need), and I figured lg would be the better brand.
    both tvs have gotten extremely great reviews, although best buy doesn't list much, amazon has tons for both tvs.

    Craig, I'm considering the same 2 tv's. You mentioned that the review on both tvs were great and I was wondering where you were able to find reviews for the LG 55LM4700. I've been searching everywhere and haven't found much. Thanks!

    I just looked for the reviews from my phone for the lg and can't find any. Maybe it was another lg I was reading reviews on last night. I was thinking amazon or best buy but didn't see them. I was probably reading about the 7600

    I ended up buying the LG from Fry's as well since I got a great deal on it. Everything seems to be working quite well so far. The 2D to 3D conversion seems to work quite well and the image quality is quite clear. The sound from the TV alone without the soundbar is also quite sufficient. No complains so far.
