Samsung 40ES8000 or Panasonic 37ET5b

Sorry about another 'which one should I buy' thread but I have an added problem. The height including stand must not exceed 59cm. This is the absolute maximum, there is nothing that can be done about that.

I will use if mainly for watching sport and general tv with the occasional dvd. A very good 'smart' capability is a must and I will want to use it for skype a lot so a good camera will be an essential accessory. I won't be using it for gaming and have purchased a Fox Sat PVR. I will also need to purchase a sound bar as I don't have an av system and don't want lots of speakers and cables everywhere. 3D is not important and I won't be using that. The ability to access iplayer and similar from ITV anc channel 4 is very important. The only candidates so far are Samsung 40ES8000 and Panasonic 37ET5B. Panasonic 42WT50B, 42ET50B, 42DT50B are all excuded because of height. It will be used in a reasonably well lit room so the brightness of the Samsung might be an advantage

Should I go for the Panasonic or the Samsung or are there any other suggestion.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I would normally say Panasonic, but the extra size of the Samsung tempts me. Have you checked them in a shop?
