Hi All I took the plunge and opted for the 42pd3000 for several reasons and generally it is a very nice unit. However, there seems to be some 'noise' as any on screen graphics (e.g. channel logos, particular using red) show some interference - like a small flickering grid around the text. I was thinking that perhaps it was a weak signal or interference (we've just recently moved home so not completely sure of picture quality for the area yet) but wanted to check being new to plasmas I'm also sometimes a little disappointed in the general quality. Even on component input DVDs. Normally it's perfectly fine, but get any closer than a couple metres and you can see how lacking the sharpness is. I know it's not normal to be sitting so close to a screen this size, but with the advanced features of the pd3000 I wasn't really expecting it. Is it normal, or does anyone have a nice setup for the config options that they'd like to share? thanks in advance, as always these forums are a fantastic source of info.
