Hi, I'm new to all things plasma... and confused. Went to a retailer who convinced me that the Hitachi 42PD5300 was the way to go. Did some research (reviews are hard to find!). Found this forum and have read some fine posts. Due to the reviews I've read here I'm going to go with a panny. It seems that the TH42PW6BS is the popular choice but then theres the TH42PE30B. I've read the tech specs on both screen and they appear to read the same to me. Is the technology (in terms of picture display) on both the same? Why would I buy the 'older' model when the Viera is now out? Can anyone help me? (I'll be using the display with DVD, ntl box and PS2). Thanks.
