I haven't really tested the new Toshiba, but it is well known that the newer sets use LG glass instead of the Panasonic glass featured in last years models. Panasonic is known to be one of the best manufacturers of plasma glass around today while the LGs didn't quite compare.
Personally, I think the newer Tosh seems like a downgrade overall. In addition to switching the glass, the actual design of the unit isn't as attractive as the rather unique HPX95 (which looks awesome, in my opinion).
There are a few owners around here, though, so you might want to track down the HP66 thread instead.
