    I am looking to get one of the two following
    47' Projection Widescreen HDTV's:
    The Samsung HCL4715W -
    Link to Details
    or the Panasonic PT-47WX42 -
    Link to Details
    Is there any particular features or quality issues which will put one on top of the other? (I can get them for basically the same price - an extra 50 bucks for the panny)
    What is recommended?

    I have the samsung 4715, and here is my take on all three sets:

    panny 47wx42: I have heard nothing but good things about this set once it is tweaked
    pros: inexpensive, no glare
    cons: no dvi, no screen protection, strech modes average (IMO)

    samsung 4715: For the most part, I have been quite happy with my decision
    pros: inexpensive, solidly built, very good glare screen (in my opinion, the samsung anit-glare screens are the best compromise between reducing glare and protecting your screen)
    cons: remote signal is weak, no dvi, Every once in a while when showing a light background i can faintly notice a 1 inch vertical line in the center of the screen that others have noticed as well
