Complete novice who has been studying this site for weeks needs advice. I am about to enter the wonderful world of plasma TV and need advice on the most appropriate set to buy. What I need: 42 inch, quality brand, budget 2000 , HD ready(maybe not needed as my job ensures I move around the world and cannot transport a plasma so may not take full advantage of HD when it finally comes on line) What I have: sky tv and dvd player What Ive looked at: panasonic PA 50 (european version without freeview-but have sky), Panny PV 500-my first choice due to recommendations on here and the look, others that havent really floated my boat. Should I purchase the PA 50 as it may have a shelf life of only a few years-best price around 1500 splash out the extra cash for the PV500 and enjoy the extra quality or look at something non panny ie, the cheaper 42 inch LG, samsung. Plus what cables should I purchase I only have bog standard scart. advice very much appreciated here in Munich!
