Hitachi42pd7200 , Pioneer435fdete , Panny pv500 showing same HD feed as a Philips lcd 32" (no model no. ) The lcd picture was much sharper,better defined with better contrast between blacks/whites (i'm a tv lay person you know). I have no axe to grind - I was ready to buy a plasma (just got my Halifax interest free for a year card!) Why oh why was this..any ideas...set up?? Incidently I thought the lcd's on sd stuff also looker sharper on pic quality. Any thoughts or redirects to ppropriate threads welcome.
