I been looking at the new Panny 500. Only concern is its native res, should I wait till 1920x1080 panels are available? because if the standards are set at 720P and 1080I/P and the standard stays standard for even a 1/4 of the length of the previous standard, I think it'd be best to wait. My main use of the Plasma would be for future games consoles (360, rev and maybe PS3) HI-DEF DVD's not sure of the native res on blu-ray/hd-dvd whichever they decide. I currently dont have sky as I refuse to have a phone line just so I can watch tv!(Tho I do really really want sky!) and Im not getting NTL as theirs is rubbish. as for freeview whats the point? its got no decent channels on other than BBC1 & 2 So taking into account my uses, what do you think I should do? another thing to note. I am VERY picky on picture quality I can easily tell the difference between composite/svideo/RGB or Component, I can also tell the difference between resolutions and cable interfference and demand the best of what I can get from my equipment. this also means I dont want upscalers/descalers/convertors/amps either just pure point to point native gubbins. ta muchly!
