I'm looking at this 42" Panasonic and 40" Samsung models and would like some advice on which to go for.

I know the Panasonic doesn't have the 3D, but I'm not interested in that anyway. Likewise the Freesat HD. I'll be watching using standard Sky+ for the majority of the time, but will take advantage of Freeview HD when possible.

I am very interested in watching things like BBC iPlayer on my TV via WIFI, so would either of these models be better than the other one for doing this?

Any help is appreciated. Cheers.

Pana e6 range of 39 , 42 & 50 inch gives good results ( and surprisingly good sound for thin TV ) and comes with a 5 year guarantee when bought from a proper pana dealer . There is a step up model that has better performance and excellent passive 3d but costs slightly more .

Just be aware as I am sure most will be that streaming iplayer via wifi is liable to buffering on higher data throughputs -- fortunately if you connect a TV to your router via cable or even home plugs then this never happens . The San you mention is not a F8000 and is OK but --- its not a F8000 !

Thanks for the comments, so which would you recommend? I'm guessing the Panasonic.

You have got to check them out yourself to see how you feel with the performance , on the pana the "out of box" settings are quite bright , perhaps tone the backlight down to 85 from 100 and set the colour temp to normal ( from cool2 )
Forgot to say the stepup model is the ET60 range
If you are wanting a sam then go F8000 its fantastic but you pays your money and all that . LOL

Not homeplugs. They are slower than cable and cause interference to your neighbours. The faster they are the more interference they cause.

Give it a rest - you keep sprouting this same incorrect misleading rubbish every time someone mentions Homeplugs.
