I'm in the market for a 46-52" LCD to replace my 50" Panasonic plasma.
I like my current Panasonic a lot but we're remodeling our apartment and I need a TV with a smaller footprint. In NYC every inch counts, it is really important that the hight and width dimensions be as small as possible relative to the screen size. So my criteria for selecting the LCD is that have reasonably good picture performance and have as compact a form factor as possible.
I've narrowed the choices down to the Samsung UN46ES8000F or the Panasonic TC-L47WT50. The primary driver of the selection are the narrow bezels on these models. I'd consider a screen size up to 52" but I don't know of any options that don't also add a lot to the footprint with wider bezels.
So looking on opinions on these two options as well as any other models I should consider.
