Sony KDL-40W4500U vs Panasonic TH-37PX80B
I have read reviews on both of these sets, and am now stuck as to which one to choose. My budget is suitable for both sets and my room is just about big enough for the 40inch. So that just leaves the question as to which will be the better tv? I will be using the tv for everything from sd to up-scaled dvds from Marantz DV7001 (with a look to buying a bluray player and getting sky+HD in the future).
My main concerns are these:
1. Lifespan of Plasma vs LCD
2. Back-light bleed/clouding (I am in the process of returning my panasonic TX32-LXD700 due to this problem and am now worried about getting the same problem with the Sony LCD)
3. General picture quality, especially fast moving action such as sports and dark scenes.
If anyone can help to shed a bit of light (preferably not back-light!!!!) I would much appreciate it.
