Took the plunge and decided on the above............
Congratulations! I've done the same (mine arrives tomorrow!)
had one for 6 weeks a good tv excelent picture
I've had mine 2 weeks now. I've still not finished the decorating yet so it's sitting in the corner in its box waiting for the clouds of dust to dissapear so it can come out to play!
had mine about 4 weeks. I guarantee you won't regret it
My (black) Panasonic 42" PWD6 arrived last Thursday.
I'm very pleased with it!
I have the SCART and the Component terminal boards. I have a Sony freeview box connected to the SCART, while my Bose Lifestyle 28 DVD system is connected to the component board. The Bose system also handles the audio from the Sony box.
I've read that the SCART can appear "soft", but it looks great to me.
The only issue I have is nothing to do with this particular screen, and I had been warned about - that when I watch VHS tapes (from my ordinary, composite-only VCR) I notice the quality isn't as good. With my old (standard CRT) telly, I couldn't tell the difference when I watched a recording.
I think I'll have to improve my recording capability - either by adding a DVD recorder or a hard disk recorder. I did think about the Pace "twin" freeview box/recorder, but was scared off by reports of bugs etc (I think mostly these are fixed).
How much did you get the pdw6 for?
I am a newb but am interested in buying a plasma 42"
i went to a good AV store and the salesperson suggested a Fujitsu p42vha20w for $5000 but then i seen this thread-
which suggested getting the panasonic pwd6 instead , i really dont know a good website where to look up prices but i checked out www.shopping.com which gave me a pretty good idea
on that site a pwd6 is around $3,000, that is about $2,000 cheaper for a better TV....
this seems a little confusing as $2000 is a big difference, am i getting the models mixed up or did I get everything right?
any help would be appreciated
There are some recent threads with the lowest prices - the cheapest around £2500-£2600 for a PW6 (various online dealers).
I paid £3000 for mine (from a local shop), which included a SCART terminal board. I got the black one - my wife preferred the look of the black.
Havn't got mine fixed up yet but would be interested to here about what picture settings people are finding best.
The only change I made to the picture setting was to change it from the default "normal" to "auto" - "Automatically selects the mode that best suits the brightness of the environment". That seems to work pretty good. I also set the aspect on the SCART input (Freeview) to Auto. But I've only had it a few days, and would also be interested in what settings others have found work best.
I have been waiting around all day waiting for CityLink to arrive.
Oh hurry up
Mr CityLink has been and gone.........Now wheres me drill??
its so good that i have had to buy a new dvd player too
what did you go for pizzacheaze? I'm gonna buy a filler until the dvi/hdmi is sorted. I'm thinking either a sony 730 or HK dv 25 so I can at least have PS whilst not losing too much money on it.
went for a sony 930 to connect via progressive scan
i really want a prog scan dvd changer, but as usual, you cant buy anything with technology in the uk
i currently have a sony 7700 (4 yrs old) ill keep it and use it in the bedroom
