Aloha to all.... I need some urgent info.... My father in law bought a TH-50PHW6 a few weeks ago...and its gorgeus. My only gripe with it is when viewing standard TV broadcast, especially when not so great quality...the picture suffers.... The other thing I dont like is the BRIGHTNESS...I intend to follow suit and get me a panny also...but my budget can only allow me a 42", and since HD is ages away where I live...I guess I should be okay with a EDTV for now...so I have a few questions: 1- What's the brightness on the panny screens...its not listed anywhere?? what's the brightness on the TH-50PHW6 & TH-42PWD7 specifically? 2- Reason for question 1: My mind is set on a TH-42PWD7, and I want to know if it will be BRIGHTER than the TH-50PHW6, especially that its smaller? 3- I mainly watch DVDs and regular satellite broadcasting, NO HDTV is available where i live...SO....WILL i NOTICE ANY DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE 42PWD7 MODEL AND THE 42PHW7 IN PICTURE QUALITY. WILL THERE BE ANY DIFFERENCE WITH THESE 2 SOURCES between 853 x 480 & 1024 x 768 while watching DVDs or Satellite TV?? Thanks guys....GREAT GREAT forum by the way!!
