    I am weighing up the Hitachi 7200 v Panny PV500 at the moment. The guy in JL made a big thing of the fact that Panny had 3000:1 contrast compared to the 1000:1 offered by the Hitachi.

    I also noticed the Hitachi was 1024 x 1024 compared to 1024 x 720 for the Panny.

    How much difference do these things make in real life?

    High contrast ratio should give deeper blacks although different manufacturers measure this in different ways. The Panny is generally recognised as doing the best blacks though.

    The resolution will make little to no difference to the picture quality.

    I've got a PV500 and I've also had the chance to get a good look at the PD7200 and IMO they both look identical.Both have brilliant PQ and I think it comes down to decisions like do I want to remove speakers,do I want freeview, which one do I think is more attractive etc rather than which has the better image quality.
