Default 50" 720p Panasonic or 47" 1080p ProScan?

I was shopping around a little for a new TV, and came across these two sets for the same price ($899). The Panasonic is a 50" plasma screen at 720p, and the ProScan is a 47" LCD screen at 1080p. The room this TV will be placed in has the viewer usually sitting about 12 feet away (maybe a little more). Which of these TV will work out better in that situation? Is the ProScan brand TV even worth consideration???? I currently have an old ProScan 27" tube TV that's done very well for what it is, but I understand that brand is manufactured by someone else nowadays. Thanks for any help you can pass along!

ProScan certainly isn't the set it used to be. For picture quality and reliability I would choose the Panasonic.

Go with the panasonic plasma. Even at 720 this set has a better picture than the proscan. And reliability is goons be better on the panny.

Picked up the Panasonic today, hhgregg price matched to Sears price of $899. Very happy with the purchase. I caught myself thinking that if I were to buy the ProScan, the 5-year warranty would have been a must. Not so with the Panasonic. Setup was a breeze, and I feel like I got a really solid piece of hardware with this set.
