there won't be any books? Just trying to visualize what's going on, hehe.
I have a 50" Panasonic but not the 800 model and the base on that is about 18". So maybe going to the store and measure it might be a good idea.
i've been looking everywhere for the answer to this question because apparently it's a sticking point for my mother, who the TV will be for.
she's pretty much narrowed it down to these 2, and probably prefers the Panasonic (based on its superior CNET review / cheaper price).
my question is this: what is the measurement from the very BACK of the television to the FRONT EDGE of the stand?
in short, she's putting the TV on a counter with bookshelves behind it that stick out, leaving very little depth (about 10.25 inches from the shelves to the edge of the counter).
the only info i can get is how deep the entire stand is, which doesn't help, and all the models in the store are on the wall so there's no way to measure.
also would appreciate other advice and/or opinions about the 2 models.. thanks in advance!
