The obvious difference is the TX-58J is a bigger TV by some 3 inches however both TVs have similar specifications one is not "better" than the other so it all comes down to personal preference you should see both TVs working in normal operating conditions both in 4k mode and 1080 mode and decide yourself , as a technician I do suggest you get extended warranty if the shop does not provide that its probably the most important thing to consider with a new TV to cover you for panel/back-light issues that can write off a TV so you get 1 years manuf warranty then extend by another 4 years ,let me know what you think

What about the difference between operating systems? One has myhomescreen -Panasonic’s own and the other is an android TV which I suspect has more close ties with google giving more apps options - including chromecast

Both TVs come with 5 year warranty from ***** *****

Yes ***** ***** is the best for warranty, it all depends on your personal preference ? there are gains and losses with both software systems , we do get a lot of software crashes with android tvs not booting properly so if I had to pick one I would be wary of android , chromecast works with either system ,
