Hey Darth333

Just signed up for consumerreports.org awhile back and here's what they say...

The non-Wifi sister of the Panasonic plasma you posted was given the highest rating by Consumer Reports. According to CR, Panasonic has the fewest quality problems (major quality problem rate of 3% for plasmas, 2% for LCD) of all the brands, though Sony and Samsung are not far behind (Sony: 3% for LCD; Samsung 5% for plasmas, 3% for LCD).

If viewing angle is a main concern, you may consider Vizio or LG for the LCD. The Vizio XVT553SV TruLED and LG 47LV5500 stood out here. These were both Wifi capable LED TVs with a viewing angle listed as "wide" whereas all the Samsungs and Sonys they tested were listed as "moderate" or "narrow" viewing angle. The Vizio also came with a bluetooth remote with a slide out full QWERTY keyboard. Vizio and LG both had 3% major quality problem rate for LCDs.


LCDs...



Plasmas...
