For the main living room the time has come to replace A Samsung PS42-C450 with something slightly more capable and I've narrowed the choices to the above.

For pic quality logic says the Panasonic (esp as I've been offer a mint ex-display with 5yrs warranty for £999) but the beauty of the D8000 doesn't go away but is it worth the extra £400 and loss of 4ins screen (and nearly 8ins of absolute size)

I'm sure I won't be disappointed with either of them but other than absolute picture quality is there anthing else the Panasonic has an an advantage ?

The other option is to sell the kids and go for the UE55D8000 but this sems to get worse reviews than the 46" version - is that reality or just subjective ?

Hi k3lvc, I'd go for the Panasonic. It may lack the glamorous looks of the Samsung, but the extra screen size and excellent picture quality would swing it for me.
