LG RZ42PX11 and Panasonic TH-42PE30 were on my list. I have been to local comet and they demonstrated both using direct DVD feed. I couldn't see any noticeable difference. With so many connectivities and features like dual tuner builtin, at so low price, I decided to buy LG. After reading the thread "New Plasma LG RZ-42PX11 " in this forum, I have no dought. Below is what I found on the internet. What do you think? Samsung SDI remained the world's top producer of plasma display panels (PDPs) during the second quarter of this year, an industry report said Monday. Display marketing agency Display Bank said the PDP output by Samsung SDI during the period amounted to about 187,000 units, claiming 22.8 percent of the market. This is the third consecutive quarter that Samsung SDI has held the No. 1 ranking. The South Korean company was followed by Japan's Matsu****a Electric Industrial with 173,000 units and South Korea's LG Electronics with 161,000 units. The combined PDP output of South Koreas major manufacturers claimed a market share of 42 percent during the first half of this year, up from 36 percent last year. Japanese companies accounted for 55 percent during the same period, down from 61 percent a year earlier.
