    I believe the PWD6 and the PE30 are the same screen, the PE30 is just a consumer model with a nice enclosure and built-in ports at the back.

    No its not - there are significant differences - get the PW if you can cope with (or get advice on) how to connect it up.

    The pw6 can be made HD compliant, not easily or cheaply though. Same for 7 series. The only screen with guaranteed HD ready status is the FDE. The panasonic viera is certainly never going to be HD ready, there is no possiblilty of a digital input. The question to ask yourself is just how soon can you afford to go HD? The 6 years you have the Wega for puts us to 2010-011. They might conceivably have some content by then, but it'll still be pricey. The FDE suffers a bit with SD sources, anything not via the digital input. So you can get the FDE, have maybe 3-4 years of not terribly good, then 2 years of HD perfection, then something better will be around, or you could get a PW, have 3-4 years of pretty good, them move it to the bedroom and get a serious HD display. Just my thinking there, feel free to disagree. I very much hope we will all be able to afford a serious HD display in 4 years' time, not just for the sake of my selling them!
