Sharp LC80LE940X vs. Panasonic TH-P65VT60K vs. Samsung UA75F8000AK

Been reading a bit about the sets and am trying to decide between the three.

For the Panasonic, the main benefit is it's a plasma screen, so picture quality will be better. On the downside, it's going out of production, so warranty, spare parts, replacement etc. is a potential issue.

For Sharp, the size is it's main selling point. Picture quality looks pretty good too. The panel is made in Japan, which is always a good thing. Based on reviews, the firmware and Smart TV features are quite pathetic. The Smart features are not so important to me, so I don't mind that.

For Samsung, not as big as the Sharp, but bigger than the Panasonic. The picture quality looks great, better than the Sharp, but I was told that it is because it's a glossy screen. Sharp's is matte. It supposedly has alot of white noise though.

LG's not a factor as their largest non-Ultra HD TV is 65".

Any thoughts would be much appreciated.
