    Default LG or Panasonic?

    Hey all,
    My familiy wants to purchase a new TV. We want it to be 55 inch, Full HD, LCD and Smart. We have our eyes on a few LG models and a Panasonic model. Which do you think are better? If you have any previous experience with either LG or Panasonic smart TVs please share. Or if you have any other recommendations.
    Sorry for spelling and grammar., I'm rubbish at typing on a tablet!
    Thanks!

    Back in January 2013 Consumer recommended either the LG 50PA6500 or the Panasonic Th-P50ST50Z. These are both 50" Plasma TVs. Whether they are still current models I don't know.

    I'd personally go LG, and go for an LED TV last that price too! Also, try get one with WiFi built in coz most people don't bother with running a network cable to it so they miss out on many of the features...

    Do you find you use 3D much (if at all). Currently on the hunt for a 55" LED, but unsure if it's worth the extra for 3D in reality.

    Pretty much never use 3D. It was a nice gimmick for the first week but that's about it.
    Still, for us the reason for going for this one wasn't the 3D, but for the built-in WiFi and a few other minor little things... Plus, bigger is better

    I think ours was the LG 55LM7600.

    Yeah was looking at a Samsung DSE had for $1888, 55" LED 3D etc. I always thought Samsung were pretty good at TV's but FairGo/Consumer seem to think otherwise.

    Yeah haven't been super impressed by them personally. They're decent if you're on a budget though
