I have a Toshiba 26wlt66 which has been great, but following a room change-around I now have two seats at quite wide viewing angles and the colour washes out a bit and I lose contrast. When I bought the set it claimed 176 degree viewing angle, which is true I suppose but the picture is not as good at wider angles. I am considering upgrading to a Panny 26LMD or LXD with IPS-Alpha panels which claim 178 degree and no loss of picture quality at wide angles. Is this true or is it just hype? Any other reason why I should or should not upgrade? Don't want to spend money if the difference will be minimal. When I upgraded from my old 27wlt56 I was glad I did - the newer technology made a big difference. Room size dictates this screen size by the way.
