Bought my 32pd30 from one of the major electrical retailers last Christmas after reading all the reviews. 10 months later I was still adjusting the picture on a daily basis trying to get it to look half decent. Problems inc. dirty screen down both sides, blotch on screen highly visible on red backgrounds, horizontal white bars on svideo mode, and an unusable rgb mode due to black crushing, and if the brightness was turned up to a 'normal' setting, horizontal white banding distorted the image. Brother in-law recenlty bought a Philips pixel plus model online, at less than half the price what I paid for my TV. I helped him set it up, and literally felt sick at how much better this TV was compared to mine. I think he noticed how speachless I was. This prompted me to call the engineer out to fix my 'greatest TV of all time'. He claimed the TV was a write off. After 3 weeks in the workshop, it was indeed written off. I was given the option to replace the TV. I explained how I had lost faith in that particular model, and so was given a full refund without any hassle at all. It's as if they were aware of the faults and had had to deal with it many times before. My dilema now is, do I hold out for a PD50, or buy from a different manufacturer. I received an email from Panasonic customer services who said the model has now been distributed to its retailers. Has anybody in Britain got this model yet, or now of any reviews. In particular, have the PD30 issues been resolved?
