I've been looking at these two for the last month and a half since my TV died. They both have great features and can look wonderful when properly calibrated. What I've noticed: the Toshiba has 2 HD component inputs, the Panasonic only 1 true HD input. The Panasonic has black vertical bars in 4:3 mode, more asthetically pleasing than the bright grey bars on the Toshiba (espcially when playing non 16:9 videogames) The Toshiba has 3:2 pulldown, the Panasonic does not (how important is this?) What are your opinions on these sets? Are there any other pros/cons I should be aware of? I plan on buying soon so any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
