Hi all! Been a lurker here for a little while - I'm a bit of a newbie when it comes to the wonderful world of plasma, so apologies in advance if this has been done. I have cut my choice down to either the panasonic 42PW6B or the hitachi 42PD3000 both are in budget. What confuses me is that the Panny 6 is often quoted as the better screen, but the hitachi has better screen resolution and is HD TV ready etc. and is a bit cheaper! Is there any consensus as to which has the best picture? Does the screen resolution (higher for the hitachi) make any difference? Basically if the panny is better i would pay a little extra for it. I have seen them both badly set up in Currys (the hitachi was better) and the panasonic set up properly in a specialist shop looked great, but I havent been able to see the hitachi in the right setting! I will be using sky+ and will eventually upgrade my arcam-diva dvd to the progressive scan. Thanks for any advice you can offer.
