Sorry everyone to post again but I am still not decided on what plasma, have looked at XDE & PHD7 & PW7 (discounted this due to not being HD) but haven't had a chance to see MXE1. Just wondered if anyone could post what they feel are the good and bad points of each before I go into meltdown. One thing i do have to bear in mind is there could be a possibilty of us emigrating to Oz but not sure yet...god I'm not normally this indecisive. Or does anyone think it worth waiting to see if the Panny 8's will be any better...which is not guarenteed. I know the blacks are better on the pannys. Futureproofing if it is really possible is an issue to me as I dont want to be replacing my kit for a few years...unless i win the lottery.
