Had my 36PD30 (CRT) for nearly a year now - purchased because, at the time, I was dead set against plasmas and it seemed like the best PQ TV available. However, I've not been happy with it from day 1 (see some of my posts in http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=93429) and I'm now on the verge of finally admitting defeat and swapping it for a Viera 42PE30. One final question, before I commit myself to joining the plasma club - will I be happy with it? I've looked at loads of Vieras in shops, taken in DVDs to audition etc., and on the whole I think I like what I see. I'm a little concerned about flicker - but as the Vieras do have the Quasi 100hz feature of the PW6 (confirmed by 2 sources at Panasonic!) - hopefully that shouldn't be a problem. But, as I'm clearly a fussy git I'd be interested to hear the views of anybody who has made a similar transition recently - particularly from a PD30.
