I'm buying my first plasma and have a few questions. Any response would be greatly appreciated... Sony questions 1) In all the showrooms I've looked in, the Sony model looks head and shoulders above the others in terms of colour and contrast (although I've only seen one model, the KeP42M1) Is Sony the best? I've heard it is, but is that true? 2) Is WEGA really all that good? Does it make much of a difference? Do other manufacturers have anything similar to WEGA? All these Sony proprietory things such as Digital Reality Creation... are they worth getting a Sony for? And if so, why aren't Sony plasmas pushed by the showrooms and plasma magazines? I opened a plasma magazine yesterday and I don't recall any of their top ten buys being a Sony! 3) I've been impressed with the Sony picture, and thinking about getting one, but I'm having trouble finding a model (42-50") with a nice bezel. By 'nice bezel' I mean one that is square with sharp corners and is black. Is there such a thing? Resolution questions 4) Why are there no plasmas on sale that use the same vertical resolution as TV (ie 576 lines)? Considering 80% of the world use this resolution, you'd think there would be loads of 576-line plasmas. So where are they? I've never seen one. And why do they sell plasmas in this country that are lower resolution than the TV signal!? Am I missing something here? 5) Why are there no (or very few) 50" plasmas with a vertical resolution of 1024? Surely as you go up to the bigger screens, resolution becomes more and more important? But it doesn't seem that way! I'm finding it very difficult to find any 50" with 1024 lines. Again, am I missing something here? 6) If HD is 1080 lines - why are the highest resolution plasmas 1024 lines? Who exactly is supposed to be able to view all 1080 lines? This slight difference in resolution will force the image to be interpolated and the whole thing will look really nasty. Very few of the lines will be "pure" and most of them will be hybrids of two lines of the image. Is the whole world crazy or is it just me? Line doublers? 7) This progressive scan/line doubling thing confuses me. Plasmas with line doublers take an interlaced signal and double up the lines to fill the gaps, thus keeping the 50fps framerate? If that's the case then you'll get half the resolution. Right? That can't be right... can it? Recommendations? 8) All I know for certain is that my plasma has to have a vertical resolution of 1024 (or greater) in order to clearly show all 576 lines of my TV signal. Given this, does anyone have a recommendation for a really great screen (at a good price)?
