I am having such a hard time picking between these two sets! Both have from what I can find review wise have great pictures! My main uses are Blu-ray's and Video Games with some streaming on my xbox.

Both sets from the source's i've found have low input lag

Panasonic TC-P50S60 34.1ms (http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-33199_7-57587317-221/game-mode-on-cnet-tests-tvs-for-input-lag/)

Samsung 51" PN51F5500 38ms (http://www.displaylag.com/display-database/)

I was wondering if anyone could steer me towards one or the other? Right now i'm leaning towards the Panny but from what i've read the s60 does not handle 24p well.

Any input is appreciated!

If you're a gamer you might want to get an LCD. IR is a huge pain in the ass with a lot of plasmas, including ones from the last couple years.

Never had any trouble with IR from gaming. I have had IR and burn-in from TV station "Bugs" and logos. I've had 2 Samsung plasmas, currently a PN60F5300 (game mode). Works well for me.

Hi Andrew,

 

I am facing exact same dilemma and can't decide between these 2. Was also looking at F5300 and P50S64 (Costco/Sam's club exclusive version with anti-glare filter). Which one did you end up getting? How do you like it and any regrets? How is gaming? I plan on using this w/PS3, Roku or something similar and streaming movies from PC. Somewhat dark living room with one window but no direct sunlight. Thanks!

From a picture quality stand point, based on the reviews that I have read, the S60 is a better set then the 5500. Since it's cheaper, it also offers a better value. Here are two from CNET:

Not sure where you heard that the S60 doesn't handle 24p well. I have a 2010 Panny which actually works best when outputting 24p from my BD player. I yet to read any complaints of any Panasonic set having an issue displaying 24p. Now 48p, that's a different story. wink.gif

i would recommend the pn51f5500. I manage an electronic store and the 5500 series has more true accurate color and better processing due to the cinema smooth movie display that Samsung puts into there better end plasmas. and the 5500 series is currently number 2 rated in consumer reports.
