Hi All This is my first time posting on this forum though I've been reading the threads for the last couple of weeks. I'm on the brink of taking the plunge into the wonderful world of Plasma TV but I'm just not sure which model / size to go for. Get ready for a glut of newbie questions !! After seeing many positive views on the Panasonic range I'm very close to going for the TH37PW7B or TH37PWD7 (Seen on av-sales.com). Now I think i've definitely decided to go for a 37" model as I think a 42" would be just to big for my front room as the viewing distance from my sofa to the telly would be about 7ft (Would you agree?). Also what is the difference between the TH37PW7B and the TH37PWD7 exactly as the specs look the same to me. Now the only thing I am hesitant about is that these models are not hi-def panels as they only support a 853x480 resolution and I have been told hi-def is the way to go and I should avoid wvga panels if I can afford to. So which way should I go?. This is what I will be connecting: 1) Freeview receiver 2) Samsung DVD-HD945 (Prog scan & HD output via HDMI) - To be purchased 2) Xbox 4) Pioneer VSX-D814 HC Receiver - To be purchased My main reason for getting a Plasma TV will be for watching DVD's. Will the Panny 37PW7B / PWD7 blow me away with quality of DVD playback via a component input or would I be better suited going for something like a Pioneer 435XDE which has true hi-def capabilities & HDMI input? Of course I want good quality PQ when watching freeview etc but not top priority for me (though the girlfriend would be upset with crap PQ on normally telly viewing). Now money is always the driving factor and I have a budget of 2k (though I could stretch this a little). So do I go for a panny 37" screen which would also enable me to get the HC AMP and DVD player straight away, or save up some more and go for a hi-def panel like the pioneer 435XDE (then save again!!! for the DVD & AMP) ? Sorry for waffling on but 2k is a lot of money to spend and I want to make sure I make the right decision. At the moment I just cant make up my mind and its driving me mad. I hope you experts out there can help! Thanks for reading.
