I am about to order a 42" panel and am favouring Panasonic. I have found that I seem to be very aware of the screendoor effect when demoing the PW6, and in the new house where the screen will take pride of place, we will be sitting reasonably close - and no I don't want a 37". So as the prices are dropping for the sd panel are there any deals for the PHD6 anywhere? I can't find any. If not does the panel justify the extra cost if I decide to stretch the budget that far? As an alternative, how does the Pio 434HDE compare with the PHD6 in "real life". I have found so far that I much prefer the picture of even the sd Panny (except screeendoor) and I am not that bothered about DVI. I found the Pioneer picture surprisingly grainy, grey and with a fair amount of banding, although for the family the tv versus monitor option does have a certain appeal.
