Of the Samsung PN60E7000 and the Panasonic TCP60ST50, which one do you think is a better overall television set, WITHOUT regards to price? Both have gotten great reviews and I am looking to purchase one of the two sets.

Marlo, a careful reading of the review points out a slight abberation found Tom in the color with the Samsung, but nothing that would be a deal breaker, though it did prevent him from giving this set a Top Pick. The bigger differences in my view between the two sets is in the form factor. The top-line Samsung plasmas are the only ones with an ultrathin, LED-like 1.5 inch profile, so they look really sleek. If you're going to mount or place a television alongside a wall where the edge of it is visible when you enter the room, this may be a consideration. Samsung also has a world-class streaming platform in their TVs, although Panasonic has the basics in its sets as well (which for me is Vudu, Netflix, Pandora). That said, we loved the ST series (review also available on and found it did most of what the spectacular VT series did this year at much less cost, and it is once again this year our value-darling amoung flatpanel TVs. (The VT review has been completed and will come out soon, btw...)

Why was this tv not given a top pick.

From the 8000 plasma model is the evolution kit integration. The plasma 7000 does not come with evolution kit input which is schedule to release next year. Samsung says the kit be able to upgrade the OS on the tv.

The E7000 also comes with the evolution kit integration per Samsung's web page (though it's not obvious) and more importantly it's on my E7000.

I debated between the E7000 and GT50 and went with the E7000 because of its magnificent video processor and the stand. I feel Panasonic's stand is cheap (plasticky).

HT usually publishes the calibration settings of the sets they review, however I can't seem to find them for this one in the article. Can you please point me in the right direction?

Thank you very much

Hello. Just bought the 51. Did we ever get the calibration settings in 2d and 3d? That would be nice. Thank!
