As you can see from my recent activity on this forum, I've been trying to make a decision on a new passive 3d set for some time. I want to upgrade from my Sony 40HX800 I got a couple years back.
Anyhow, I can get a decent price on one of these two sets. I can get the Panasonic for 879 or the Toshiba for 949. (Neither of which is the best price ever, but good... I'm restricted to Best Buy for this purchase.)
From what I can gather, the Toshiba has a higher 240 max refresh, while the Panasonic has much better smart TV features. Picture quality is my number one concern, as I use various media players for smart stuff anyhow.
I had been looking for an LG, but I've been unable to find a 55 inch in my range. I have seen and like the Panasonic, but have no way to see the Toshiba as it is online only.
