    After reading through various threads on here regarding the Panasonic TH42PH9B Plasma screens - I am still 50/50 on upgrading to this model from my PWD6 .. will the benefits be worthwhile ??

    I intend on running the following kit


    Xbox 360 - Component
    Xbox 1 - Component
    Wii - Component
    Sky HD - Component or HDMI - (Which gives the best picture)
    Windows XP MCE via VGA on Panel


    Any advice would be welcome. Have a new Sony AMP with component and HDMI inputs / outputs so should be ok .. just more interested in the screen itself

    Any PH9 screen owners care to comment, as to be honest my PWD6 is still pumping out a great signal / display even from Sky HD ...

    As for my PWD6 - thinking about installing it in my office ...

    Regards and happy new year

    Personally I wouldn't bother. I have a PH9 and while the picture is excellent I certainly wouldn't be able to justify the cost of upgrading from a PWD6.

    We have PWD6's at work so I know how good the picture is (especially with SD) so if HD still looks good on it then no way would I upgrade.

    I'd only suggest upgrading if you go for a bigger display or have a majority of HD equipment.
