I have spent the last 2 months searching for Plasma and more confused now than I was before I started. I have visited a number of retail stores to compare different Plasma sets at Currys, Comet and PowerHouse. As these stores are running on some internal distribution system via RF the PQ was poor and a few running of DVDs but only had one copy of the movie been played so couldnt actual make a good assessment. Heard about the new Panasonic E30 so went along to Panasonic (Wokingham), they had the E30 and PW6 both on display, the PQ on the E30 was much better than the PW6 asked the sales person what the main difference was between the two sets, he told me the model and price (my 5 year old could told me that) and when asked him again he said he wasnt going to give me free consultancy and walked away WHAT ! Any how I started with budget of 2K now 2.5K Its going to be wall mounted so ideally minimum number of cables to the Plasma the better. The main points I am really looking for are 1) PQ (Getting my moneys worth), 2) Once setup easy use for the kids & wife i.e. no need for switching aspect ratio etc The two top runners are PW6 and PD5300 based on what I have read from this forum, with external tuner to make my life easier but I dont want to lose PQ so I have been looking at iScan Ultra for a single connection into the Plasma via DVI. I will be connecting SKY, DVD and XBOX to the plasma the DVD currently has RGB/Svideo Due to be upgraded in the near future. Q. Is there are real buzzing problem with Hitachi plasmas? Are tuner boxes a no no is there any loss of PQ ? Is an iScan Ultra overkill for my setup? With the price of PW6 dropping (less than 2K) I was thinking of PW6 with DVI card and iScan Ultra, so I will only need to connect my devices to iScan Ultra - Will this do the job ? Any advice much appreciated . Thanks in advance.
