UPDATE: Now looking at the LG 60PA6500 instead of the 60PM6700 as I don't need 3D, Smart TV or the fourth HDMI input. The 65" is a little bigger, which is nice, but I'm curious about the difference in motion blur (if any) and picture quality for 24fps 1080p Blu-Ray playback. That's the deciding factor -- more than the price difference.

LG 60PA6500
Panasonic TC-P65ST50

The two hairs I'd like to split are:
1) 24fps Blu-Ray playback: Is one set superior to the other?
2) Motion blur: They're both plasmas, but which will provide the smoothest motion from a 1080p Blu-Ray source?
UPDATE: We're getting a small monitor for internet. It's now down to the better set for Blu-Rays. Previous question about internet no longer applies.

And according to a review on Amazon, the apps are connected through Panasonic's servers instead of directly to Netflix. True or not true? Is there a way to connect directly?

--If it does, I have my Blu-Ray player's streaming as a back-up. This is a minor technical question that won't impact the purchase.

If it makes a difference, our current viewing distance is 8' and we could back it up to 9'. Thanks.

ETA: mysq wanted to compare these sets in May:

Whats your percentage of PC use, bluray, cable etc and how is the room lighting, controlled, uncontrolled. I usually lean Panasonics way just a personal preference but with some more info you can get some good input here.
