Been lurking on this forum for a while now (and found it really informative and has potentially saved me alot of money) but have not posted until now. I've been giving serious thought to getting a plasma for a few months now and saw a great demo a while back of a Fujitsu panel at Sevenoaks Hifi in Bristol connected to a Denon 2800 mk2 DVD player (I think). The picture quality was astonishing and it was then that I found out about progressive scan. However, after having some research here, is it not true that Fujistu use only ALIS panels and so what I saw was probably not a de-interlaced image? Same goes for the Hitachi 42PD3000 which I thought would be a great buy until I found out that it too used an ALIS panel. Do people think that progressive scan will become the norm? I'd be very interested to hear from someone who has compared say the 42PD3000 (which seems to be generally well thought of) with a PAL progressive scan image on say the 433MXE. It just seems to me that we might be on the verge of a raft of new panels that will display an NTSC and PAL progressive image. This seems more likely to me that simply better interlaced images coming along from ever better DVD players.
