Panasonic may not be the best, but I always thought they make genuine stuff with less gimmicks.
I now own PV80 plasma and SC-PT950 home theater system from Panasonic. Both were worth for the money I spent.
Never had an experience with Sanyo though.

Panasonic have made far better televisions than Sony etc. There products are solid and reliable.

Sanyo on the other hand is the ugly duckling in this merger. They have always been seen as a second tier manufacturer relative to the likes of Panasonic, Sony etc.

I wonder if Panasonic will position Sanyo like Sony do with Aiwa.
