Hi, I've always wanted a Plasma but I always had a problem with them looking a bit pixelated. However, I was out shopping and I walked into an AV store to see a Panasonic TH-42PW6B on display with Monsters Inc. The picture was absolutly amazing...I thought it was some sort of HD picture on display. The price was £3,000 and I was so tempted to just hand over my credit card. I came back to find you can buy it for around £2,300 online and I am now seriously considering parting with my cash. However, I've noticed on the spec list the plasma is only 852x480. It seems some Plasmas are now 1280x768...However, they don't seem to offer the 4000:1 contrast the Panasonic does. I've always had a problem with Contrast on Plasmas...I need things looking 100% black! Do you know if there are any HD res plasmas on their way that will have 4000:1? I am mainly thinking about Blu-Ray in 2 years time and maybe WMP 9 HD running from my PC! Is there any important things I should know about Plasmas before I buy? I have a Pioneer 747A DVD Player and I don't really have the cash to upgrade. The 747A outputs Progressive on NTSC (75% of my collection) but not PAL. Do PAL interlaced pics look good on the Plasmas? Sorry for the questions and long story...the picture i saw on the Panny just blew me away! Oh and another question: Do Plasma's suffer from magnetic interference like CRT's?
