Just received the SC-BT205E.

Initial impressions are that the excellent reviews it received are justified. It was easy to set up, looks great (although admittedly the speakers are not as fancy as the LG!). However it is performance I want over aesthetics and the Panasonic ticks all the boxes. Watched parts of the Dark Knight on Blu Ray last night and was very impressed with both Picture Quality and Sound. Much better than my old Sony 5.1 system. I can highly recommend it.

I have just got the SC-BT200 and am pleased with it. Personally I don't like tallboy speakers so I never even considered the LG.

One thing in the LG's favour though is that it has 2 HDMI inputs whereas the Panny has none. That wasn't a big issue for me as I have nothing else that connects via HDMI. But if you do that might swing it for you.
