Hi, I came across the plasma model mentioned in the title of my thread when i was browsing the panasonic u.s website. It has the same appearance as our (uk) th-42pe30 viera but has a pixel count of 1024X768 and a contrast of 3000:1 and is compatible with 720p/1080i HDTV. They also have a 42" screen which is identical technically to our viera but looks different. Does anyone know if the TH-42PX25U is likely to replace the current 42" panel that panasonic offers to the uk or if it will even become available?! Thanks.
