    please help. Had mind made up on philips lcd as this seems to be everyones favorite. Then im being told buy a pioneer plasma.

    well i just came back from my local showroom and feel visually the best looking TV was the Hitachi Plasma, cheaper than the pioneer looked to show a better image in the showroom, both TV were using the same feed.

    Im looking for pros & cons for the Hitachi against the philips please.

    I got the Hitachi 42PD5200 and I am not happy with the picture quality I am getting. I am thinking of swapping it for a Pioneer,

    I absolutely love the picture on my 5200. Still knocks my
    socks off with Sky films and DVD's through DVI.

    Er...the 42" screen is over 70% bigger than the 32" - it is much much bigger, the two side-by-side would be comical...

    The problem is nobody bad mouths the philips but there are so many mixed views on the Hitachi. I do like the philips but would like something bigger but the philips 37" is more than i want to spend, so started looking at plasma. and to be trufull on viewing the hitachi it was by far the best looking picture and quality in the shop and made the pioner look poor

    I think you should wait a couple of months until the new hd panny 500 comes out..

    And this is coming from a happy Hitachi owner
