Default which panasonic plasma deal is better ?

Hi everyone. Which deal is better:
a Panasonic tc-p58v10 for $2249.99 or a panasonic TC-65PS14 for $2499? Panasonic tech support says they're basically the same picture quality, although the v10 has THX (and then there's the size, obviously). I've not seen any reviews of the S14 so I'm not sure if it is (relatively) cheap for a reason. BestBuy is pushing the v10 based on CNETs review.

Thanks!

I believe S14 is the big box retailer (Costco, Sams Club) version of the S1 series sold in most stores like Sears and BestBuy. I'm not sure of the differences but I would make sure the S14 uses the new 12G NeoPDP panel found in the S1 and the V10 before I made any further consideration.

Default NeoPDP

Thanks
I don't know what any of this means but I googled NeoPDP and found the following post in an AVS forum. So, I guess it's the V10. What's the difference in the NeoPDP vs 12G?

From AVS:

The 12G models that have the NeoPDP panel are the S1, G10/G15, V10, and Z1.

The 12G models that are not NeoPDP are the X14, X1, C1, U1, and S14. Personally i would not want any of these models unless i absolutely could not afford a NeoPPD model. These non-NeoPDP models too much like last year's models and only exist to save a little money at the expense of having lesser picture quality.

I agree with that quote from AVS. Was that Randy Waters who posted that?

They do have the P65S1 for sale so you might want to consider that, but what is your viewing distance?

Thumbs up Panny plasma

Personally, I would go with the V10 for its ability to do 1080p/24 without flicker or using the 3:2 pulldown mode. This could be important if you have satellite for your signal source, as both Dish and DirecTV are beginning to offer 1080p/24 programming. And, of course, for Blu-Ray as well.
