Hi Guys, I am new to this forum and have been reading a lot of posts over the last few days, but thought I'd get any recommendations I can. Problem is I am working interstate (in Australia) and wanted to buy a decent telly to keep in my apartment, mainly for DVD and Xbox. So I started looking at the el'cheapo 42" plasmas. Eg, the Teac and Samsung. Trouble is, all of them looked quite bad, when up against the Fujitsu and Panasonic etc. So now, I find myself looking past the $3000-$4000 (au) plasmas at the $6-8k plasmas. But I figure if I am going to pay up to $8k for 852 res, then why not spend $10k and get one of the 50" models, that support higher resolutions. So should I decide to get the 50" models, I have narrowed it down to either the Panasonic or the Pioneer (unless someone has a better idea) 50" PDP-504HDG http://www.pioneeraus.com.au/home_entertainment/plasmadisplaypanel/pdp504hdg/index.html 50" Viera TH-50PV30A http://panasonic.com.au/products/details.cfm?objectID=2294 The use for this Plasma, is to watch DVD's and play xbox games (I have a HD connector coming today), so I'd like to play these games in HD. Now reading these forums, I understand that the Viera won't do 720p which I believe is one of the popular xbox game modes. But the Viera does do a higher res than the Pioneer (sorry, not entirely up on all these display modes quite yet, so I am unsure what I need). Finally, I'd probably expect to plug a Shuttle PC into this TV so I can have internet access via the TV (saves getting up). Sorry for this post being so long, but I figure I should let you all know exactly what I want, so I don't waste peoples time in responding. I really don't want to spend $10k and find out I bought the wrong thing. Many thanks for any responses, I appreciate it.
