Comparing a panny plasma to an lcd isnt really fair tho

i thought it was a great comparision.. as these were two of the sets im considering buying.. similar size.. similar price.. great to hear someones view comparing them, who has had both.
Woodywizz said:I've always had a Panny plasma and have no doubt that the GT30 and the VT30 are tremendous sets, all I can say is I now have the 46D8000 and I am blown away with the picture...both in SD, HD, and 3D.
I would imagine the Panny is more consistent across panels though.

Try switching on the Resolution Enhancer and you will be blown away at how it manages SD content.Not as good with sd like the samsung

The in-store deal on the 42" GT30 appear a bit different to their web site.
Buy the TV set for £1150 AND the Blu ray player for £149, AND 1 set of glasses £129 then they knock off £150. There is also 4 x Blu ray 3D discs = £1280
On line for £1300 you get the set, the Blu ray player, and the 4 discs. Buy 1 set of glasses for £129, then they knock off £150 = £1279
Pretty similar! The deals appeal though as I do not have any existing compatible stuff, so i'm effectivley starting from scratch. Any suggestion where to buy?
Also a few questions:
Can you use the pasive glasses instead / as well as the active ones?
Does a Panasonic TV mean only Panasonic glasses?
What is the Viera interface and content like?
