After researching for the last 3 months, I went in today to put a deposit on one of the very last Panasonic 60UT50's in Vancouver.
The salesman I have been dealing with gave me a last minute option - a Samsung PN60F5500.
I had chosen the 60UT50 as the best Plasma I could afford based on reputation and many many online reviews.
My salesman seems to think the the Samsung is a better TV, and it is a new 2013 model, where the Panasonic is last years model and is truly one of the last 2 in the store. All the other stores I've been looking at are sold out of this size/model.
The 60UT50 is being held with my name on it, but I was offered the chance to get the Samsung when I come back in about two weeks to complete the sale. It is also $20 cheaper than the Panasonic - not that that is a real consideration - I want the best TV that I can get for that price range.
The Samsung looked to have a brighter, nicer picture in the showroom, but I know how poorly showroom TV's are adjusted, so I'm discounting that. The question is, which is the better TV for the money?
I would truly appreciate some input before I close this deal. Thanks in advance!
