New 55 inch TV - which?

After a new 55 inch tv -  2D picture quality is what I'm after (sound not important) - prime source is Sky HD and also have a Panasonic BD player.

I have around £1500 to spend and so far have briefly loked at a couple of Samsung and LG models - like the almost invisible bezel on some of the new tvs.

Any advice would be greatly received.

Samsung 55Inch TV, Marantz SR 7009 Receiver, Panasonic 460 Blu Ray player, Monitor Audio Radius R270 fronts, Apex A40 centre, RX-FX rears, Virgin Tivo box, Sony Xperia Z3 phone + Z2 Tablet.

Panasonic?  I would not focus too much on the bezel, more the picture.

You really should audition the Panasonic TX-P55VT65B. It's a fair bit over budget, but it's worth it.

Failing that, the TX-P55ST60 is closer to £1,500.

I'm off to Currys (unfortunately) to have a look at the models you've mentioned - thanks!

I doubt Currys will have them, you will probably have to look at the VT50 if you are lucky!  Smile
