Hello, everyone. I have been interested in plasmas for a long time, and I think I am finally ready to take the plunge. The only thing stopping me from buying one is the plasma burn problem (and the slightly too expensive prices). I have decided that I am going to get either the Panasonic TH42-PE30 or the Pioneer 434HDE. I have seen the 434 in action (but not the PE30) and can say I loved the quality. I can get it for around £3500 (John Lewis; Price Match) which is not bad considering I get the free 5 year guarantee. However, the PE30 has a much longer lifespan than the Pioneer (I think almost 3x as much) and this plasma also has High Definition built in. The stand for this looks outstanding, although I am not going to buy this TV just for that! I can get the PE30 for £2800 and so you can see why I might be drawn closer to it. Can someone honestly tell me which plasma is better? I'm sure I read that the HD on the Pioneer is 'better' than that on the Panny. Also, can anyone tell me which one has the better picture quality and also, which one is more likely to suffer from plasma burn-in. Thanks, Nujjy.
