Hello, I have finally snapped with my TX36PD30 and my retailer has agreed to let me exchange for the Viera. I need useful info. Everyone seems happy with this set. I am more than happy to go the way of plug and play. The freeview plus my Sky box will keep my girlfriend happy. The component video connectivity satisfies me with prog scan from NTSC. Are there any nasty buzzes out of this set? 100hz mode in the Acuity drove me to distraction. Also the set had "doming", mucky gray marks due to a fault in the shadowmask, onscreen. This does seem to be a CRT feature. With plasma I'm assuming this is a non issue? Folks give me your opinions please. Cheers. Rob.
