I'm looking in to getting a LCD TV finally and I've nailed it down to these two choices. I've decided on the size 47" (47LM6400 vs TH-L47ET5) but it isn't that germane to my question, and while I want 3D I probably won't use it that much and after having read the many discussions, I've chosen passive well aware of the limitations. I've obviously also chosen LCD over Plasma again aware of the limitations particularly with 3D.
Anyway given my price range and what's currently available here in NZ at that price it seems these are the only real two options for me and both are about the same price (the LM6400 is LM6410 here but from what I can tell it's basically the variant sold here, just as the LM640 is sold in Europe). The LM6200 is actually more expensive at the moment (I missed a super deal) and the other LGs e.g. LM6700 are too expensive.
I watch a fair amount of TV/movies including some sports which will be the primary use of the TV. Most will come from a PVR, so the software stuff like internet browsing, Youtube, DLNA etc isn't actually a big deal. I may do a small amount of PC gaming via the PVR but it isn't a big deal.
From what I've been able to gather, it's much of a muchness comparing these two, perhaps not surprising since the panels are always made by LG and at this level software and other extras don't add that much, even more so in my case. People have had banding problems with both displays. It does seem the LM6400 has had more latency issues then the Panasonic at least in Europe.
Anyone have any opinions on comparisons between the two? Even if it's not 47" inch I'd still like to hear.
