I am still looking for an IPS TV that is 40-42". I saw the 40AS650D on the Panasonic site, but can't find it anywhere on sale except for random Indian places. It's literally the only TV in this size that advertises itself as IPS. I've been searching TVs for various brands for days. No one seems to know (or care) whether their panel is IPS or VA and saying the TV has "great viewing angles, great blacks, great colors" really doesn't help me at all. The only other IPS I can think of is the 42" LG models, and there *might* be a panel lottery for it, which I don't want to deal with. I recently bought, and returned, a 39" LG that had a VA panel. It helped me reconfirm that I do not like VA at all (literally ALL 39" TVs are VA since they are AMVA panels made by either AUO or Innolux). I also don't like the coating on it, which was semi-gloss but still very reflective, so all these issues make me leery of the 42" LG. The only other IPS TV at this size is the Panasonic mentioned above, which I cannot find anywhere. My previous TV is also an IPS Panasonic and is still very nice, but I want to upgrade to something bigger/thinner/newer. If anyone has any suggestions for other IPS TVs in the 40-42" size, please tell me. I get the feeling the people in these TV threads are getting dumber and dumber, compared to five years ago when I searched for a TV then.
