    First post for me after weeks of trying to make a choice and failing.

    I started with the usual suspects of the 42" PV500 and the Pioneer 436 xde. I want to hang my plasma on the wall, so the 436 is prob a better bet, but being able to get the Panny cheaper and from JL with its 5 year warrenty is very appealing. Anyway.

    A couple of basic plasma questions before i replace my trusty sony crt. I mainly watch sport and DVD's with the gf watching normal every day progs.
    I have seen the 2 screens side by side playing the HD demos at comet and they look very nice, but I have heard that plasmas dont handle sport very well and can be blurry etc. I would hate to spend all this money to have something that looks nice on the wall, but only if its running a HD demo!

    Do the Pannys fit ok on the wall, they seem to have a big bulge at the bottom.

    I have sky + and a surround system, which will get an upgrade soon too. Please put my mind at rest. I need to choose something so its either go flat or stay fat.
    Cheers :D

    The PV500 sticks out 14cm from the wall due to the bulge at he bottom, I think the panels stick out approx 9cm.

    This is due to the fat the PV500 has a built in tuner, subwoofers etc.

    I received my 436 on Saturday and have watched 3 live games. I havent noticed any blurring (at 75hz) or the processing artefacts that my old Sony 32FQ80 used to display at 100 hz when watching football cricket etc. The pq is terrific i cant speak for the Panasonic but i,m more than happy with the Pioneer.

    Since you don't need a tuner or sound, why not go for a panel to hang on the wall?

    I am very pleased with my PWD7 and sports are great - I watch alot of football. :thumbsup:
