So I am getting ready to make my first plasma purchase and I need advice. I have been reading a lot of reviews and reading the posts here on AV Forum. I have narrowed the decision down to either Panasonic or Hitachi. I love the look of the new Panasonic Viera TH42PE30 but I don't know if it is worth the extra money over say the TH42PW6? Does it just look nicer on the outside or have they made definite improvements in picture? I also like the Hitachi PD425200 which seems to come with a few more freebies? I have got a Denon 2900 DVD player which I connect using component cables, plus I also have Sky, XBox and PS2 using Scart connections. My main concerns are what's going to provide the best picture at the best value for money? I was looking at possible future proofing with HDMI etc but I can't see me changing my DVD player any time soon so I don't think it is an issue any more? Any help would be appreciated please!
