I just read the article. Not sure if I missed something, but I didnt notice them give the nod to anything. All of the sets were reviewed objectively and, from what I could find, not compared.
If anything, it seemed the Panasonic had the strongest conclusion in that "it was one of the best HDTVs they'd seen" The only caution was that people wanting to stray from the true HDTV color standard and experience "exaggerated surrealist color" should avoid it.
As for the "features" piece, I do know that the 760 line has DLNA support and features very similar to Vieracast. The 850u doesnt do DLNA, so that would be a differentiator. In addition, I think it has a 120hz mode.
