OK, about to pull the trigger but want opinions. LG PM6700 or Panny GT50?

    i Had the GT50 last week and it broke down.
    now i see the LG PM6700 at a nice deal, $1,000 for 60".
    does the LG set give better picture? im amazed at the quality on the GT50 but not sure if LG may be better. Thanks!

    Nothing beats a Panasonic plasma, and the gt is about the best, only the vt is better.

    I agree. I have a VT. The picture is superb. The GT series is just as good.

    I would go with the GT50. Plasma will always, always look better than LCD. Now, with the new OLED sets coming to the market, maybe. I still need to look at a side-by-side comparison before I can make a judgment call. I have a 65in VT30 from 2011 and I am still in love with it. Just make sure you get the THX certified set.

    I believe the LG model he is looking at is a plasma. I would still roll with the Panny.

    Oh! Damn you!!! This LG is a plasma....well....I do not know then. I have seen the LG plasma's and they are very nice. Plus the Korean's build these TV's good. This LG he is looking at has active shutter glasses along with being a plasma. With this information that just came to light, I would suggest finding a local store that sells both models and really stress test each TV. I mean get your hands on the remote, bring a few movies, and compare the quality of the picture.

    I got the ST50 and I think that is the model that gives the most bang for the buck. The VT50 is the best, but the difference between the GT and ST is not worth the price IMHO.
    The Panasonic will beat the LG either way

    Spot on. There is really no value in the GT over the ST. It has THX mode but if you are going to calibrate it yourself you won't be using THX mode anyways.

    If you don't need 3D or a strong anti-reflective filter then the U series is also a great cheap option.
