Panasonic TH42PV500 v Pioneer PDP436XDE



I've been "lurking" around here for some time and I'm almost ready to make a purchase. I was set on the Panasonic but saw the new Pioneer yesterday and thought it looked glorious.

Anybody got an opinion regarding the new Pioneer v the Panasonic ?

Cheers and thanks for your help.

You need to demo them both in a decent enviroment, ie not comet, currys, WH Smiths etc.

They both have a completely different feel, and only you can tell which you prefer.

Very true Gizlaroc. I viewed the 506 in Comet in those heavy lighting conditions. I'm sure it will look better in a home enviroment. I hope so anyway. ;)


I have the answer dasovic...buy both lol...just kidding...welcome to the forums :)
