Been reading this forum for a few weeks now, and just to say thanks to all for their input. I've been an av nut for years and bought some suspect gear in the past. Good to know somewhere to get sound advice and news on best deals around...Cheers Anyway, like alot of people cannot decide between a Panasonic TH42PW5B and a Pioneer 433HDE. Got a couple of queries regarding the panasonic panel. Firstly, is it capable of displaying PAL progressive signal via component, as I believe that it will become more of a feature of DVD decks in the future? (I know the Pioneer HDE won't) Secondly, I have read of a transformer buzz which drives some owners nuts on the 50" version. What's your experience on the 42" 5 series panel guys? Any advice appreciated. Lastly, I am a bit paraniod about 'dead' pixels and know what the retailers stance on these are. In reality how wide spread is this problem? I know unbeatable.co.uk have a cooling off period so this might address this.
