Bad news...House was robbed today. The upside? I get to shop for new electronics. TV was taken, so I need recommendations for a new 65" tv.

PS3 was taken, so prolly will just replace with ps4?

Wii was taken...can get one of those for peanuts now, right?

Why didn't they take the damn Onkyo receiver?

So essentially looking for tv recommendations...PQ is top priority over all else (and 65" size)

You won't be sorry if you go for the Panasonic TC-P65ST60. Very highly rated.

Or, if it fits the budget, the slightly more expensive, but even higher rated, Panasonic TC-P65VT60.

Look for other reviews to get a broader range of opinions.

Boy, that IS bad news, bear. Sorry to hear of the violation of your domicile, Craig. What a drag. But as you are a smart man, I notice that you too see such things as shop opps.

Hope there wasn't much else of a mess or damage to other things.

I didn't know that kind of stuff happened in LA.

So sorry, Craig.

Nobody has ever felt remorse after buying a Panasonic plasma. Go with hat Jack said.

That sucks Craig. I thought L.A. only got wrecked by volcanoes and giant dinosaurs and such. I never would have prepared for a common thief.

Seriously though, I can't help much on TV advice. I bought my last one strictly on the fact that it was big and the price was right as a friend had it for sale.

Don't have any personal experience with either TV. I have a 60ST50, last year's model, and absolutely love it.

You'll find, to me, a surprising number of reviews comparing the two HERE .

The one review I read said picture quality is virtually identical. If this is so, then go with the one which has the features you want.

I got the Panasonic 65 inch VT 50 about 1 1/2 years ago. Very pleased with it overall.
