I just arranged to have my Philips 42PF9946 swapped for a Panasonic Viera 42". Living in Oz, the Viera's are supposedly HD. I just hope I haven't made another mistake. I don't see any good reviews on the Viera's....are they any good....really? I didn't have much of a choice as far as swaps go. I could have gone the older Pw6 .... Getting real tired of this unkown Plasma world...... I had to put in an extra $1000 for the Viera...so I hope its worth it!
