That's a really tough call. In all honesty I think you'll be really happy with either. This is one that would really come down to personal decision. As far as the 240Hz vs. 120Hz; It's probably the difference between a 2ms monitor and a 4ms monitor. It's definitely working better, but hard to tell with the naked eye.
I have the Tosh, and I have to say that it has absolutely beautiful PQ. While someone in the 47ZV650U thread posted that they were able to see Flashlighting at the store (while fiddling with it for awhile), my set has no flashlighting or clouding. I'm really hoping to get my Xbox 360 soon so I can test gaming, but movies and sport (Hockey, Baseball, and Basketball so far) look great and have smooth panning.
Viewing angles on both sets are good.
*Personally I thought the Toshiba had the better picture.
*Personally I did not like the Touch of Color (red)
*And the Toshiba was cheaper.
While the Tosh has some goodies that the Sammy doesn't have, the Sammy also has some goodies that the Tosh doesn't have.
I would say that asking here will only get you positive results for both sets. The best way is for you to see the two together and weight the positives and negatives against each other. Which negatives you can live with and which you cannot.
I don't think either has enough advantage for someone to give you a definite answer.
