    Im thinking buying 37" plasma 37PD5200 or the VIERA my question is about the 37PD5200 PQ
    my main source feed for the plasma would be from a htpc DVI
    If video processing is done by the htpc scalling noise reduction etc
    would this remove the problems of the 37PD5200 picture processing

    I have the same dilemma. Thing to note is that the Pana Viera's do NOT have a DVI input. Otherwise I'd have already gone for the Viera TH-37PA30... :(

    I'm almost ready to go do some testing on a 42PD5200 thru DVI (I'll bring along my new Powerbook w/ DVI output for that), in a sort of desperate attempt to convince myself that these PD5200s (they don't have a 37" for demo) ain't that bad after all... I'll eventually keep you posted if you're interested.

    What I _really_ want is a 37" Pana with DVI. What I might be forced into is a 37" Hitachi. Because the Viera's don't have DVI, because I can't find the PW6/PW7s here, because it's been months of searching and comparing and analyzing and... and enough is enough.

    God I'm hating this!!


    P.S. Sent an e-mail to AV-Sales on Friday to see if they sell/ship to Continental Europe (for a PW7)... hope to get an answer soon!

    really you should look at 37PW7 and Hitachi for DVi use...... personally the only time i think Hitachi look good is from a PC! Veira is a TV not a monitor Hitachi is a monitor pretending to be a TV. other option would be a 37" Sharp LCD.... GD1E has DVi inputs and much better reolution for PC use while still a decent IDTV.......
