    Q? Has anybody recently purchased the New Panasonic TH-37PA20, as I am looking to order one in the next few weeks. The reviews look good but if anybody has first hand knowledge please let me know.

    I've got one and I love it, I have not yet seen it with progressive scan but even through rgb the picture is excellent.
    I do recomend you get a calibration disc though as when you first get it the picture does'nt look anywhere near as good as it can.

    I to am considering this set and also the Philips 37" 9965.
    What made you settle on the Panny?
    Have you looked at the Philips?
    I keep flitting from one to the other and can't decide, sometimes I think the Panny picture looks better and then the Philips looks better.
    At the moment I can get the Philips for £2550 with stand, while the Panny it £2660 without the stand which is another £150, so the Philips is the best part of £300 cheaper and is higher definition, but on the other hand, oh I don't know!!

    I needed a built in tuner so the philips was not an option and did not want a plasma with anything less than black blacks.
    Plus the picture noise on the phillips was bit of a turn off.

    I recently purchased mine from com*t including stand for £2841, it was on their website offer only. I love it to bits using the component feed from my dvd player the picture is crisp and clear. Expensive for a tv yet worth every penny.

    Viberious,
    Are you refering to the Philips 37" 9965?
    If you are, thank god a bit of positive feed back on this model.
    This is still my choice, but have not made the plunge yet (scared of making a expensive mistake).
    I bought a what plasma magazine today and they rate the 42" version as one of thr three best plasmas you can buy.
    Please tell me more as I want to be convinced.
    What is the picture like through SKY for instance?
    I currently have a 32" Philips CRT and the picture is superb, with the trade mark Philips 3D like pictures.
    I am dying to buy this plasma but don't want to go backwards as far as picture quality is concerned.:clap:

    Viberious,
    Well that p***ed on my fire.
    Looks like I will have to seriously consider the Panny.
    Can you answer this though, I will be watching it through my sky box 95% of the time. What is it's picture like when watching regular tele. Is it as good as you old CRT. Every time they are being demoed in shops it is using a DVD source.
    Cheers.

    The pq on sky is fine so long as the channel is one like Sky Movies etc a high bandwidth channel. Things like UK Gold do suffer slightly but no enough to worry about it.
