I'll write this quickly as my head is about to explode!!! I've done the 'search thread' thing (head began to hurt), read the comparisons (head began to swell & hurt), read through all the technical stuff (its gonna blow!), but still have 4k in the bank for a new set-up. Here goes, you've heard it before - what 42" plasma ,what dvd, prog scan?, sub sat package?, inputs/outputs (shake it all about-puts, only joking), jagged diagonal lines, ALIS screens!?!? Please help before I ditch the tv idea completely and go on holiday instead.
