Am presently looking at throwing out the CRT I have at home here in Singapore. Definitely want a 50 or 55" model and am presently looking at Panasonic (PW6 - newer models not available yet) and Pioneer 50" (504HDE) models or the Hitachi (55PMA550). I don't watch too much in the way of movies and the main issue is we don't get digital or HDTV signals here yet (or maybe even this century!) so want to make sure that I get something that can make the most of a relatively low quality signal - it's not too shabby (no ghosting and clear enough on a 34' CRT) just not what I would really like. Leaning towards the Hitachi at the moment - retails for around GBP3,000 here as opposed to the Pioneer for around GBP2,700. I watch a lot of sport (footy, rugby, tennis, cricket - yes we get that here etc) mainly plus the odd movie from local cable plus the odd sitcom Any input appreciated.
