Ok I,ve been on here for about 3 weeks now. And all i can see is that there is no perfect plasma out there as yet !!! I myself have had a good demo on the pdp435dxe and the 42 Panasonic TH-42PE30 VIERA And most of the others too. The thing is everyone has there own taste on plasma,s , I like the XDE, looks great on the wall and the pic on dvi was good. Also liked the Viera But liked the look of the XDE, And all i keep hearing is sky looks pants On the DXE, Well i think sky looks pants on all plasma,s A friend of mine who is also on here has the Samsung one, Witch i did like untill i saw the xde, Also if your going to buy a plasma go talk to people, I do i just walk into a shop and say !!! Whats is your best plasma you have ?? And so far its been the Pioneer PDP-435XDE that everyone has been saying is the better screen down here. So go on go around your shops and ask it does help. Now this is where i get slatted. lol.
