Much better TV than the Sony 46hx923.  One of the best ever made, brilliant all rounder.  Yes the Sony 46hx853 is better than the hx923.  Not sure about the Philips.  The Panasonic is a serious bargain!

Based on the reviews I've read, HX923 suffers from 3D crosstalk. My money would go on the GT50 without a doubt.

Thanks for the heads up!!!

Fantastic deal and spent Christmas day debating buying it... held out but when I woke up today and thought it was out of stock (the GT50 link with the 5 year guarantee/2 free 3D glasses is "out of stock"), almost had a heart attack!

Now got my order in and can't wait to take delivery  woohoo!
