Hi all, I have recently moved from my Philips plasma over to a Pioneer. These are my thoughts. 1. Philips bracket design for hanging on the wall was far superior. 2. Philips sound quality (inc. output power) was much better. 3. Pioneer picture quality is far superior to Philips 4. Pioneer and Philips menus are as good as each other The Pioneer is a nice screen and I like it but I also liked my Philips. There are a greater number of adjustments for picture quality on the Pioneer compaired to the Philips, but half of them I am reluctant to adjust. Not too keen on the fan noise from the media box on the Pioneer, it is a bit noisy and can be picked out when watching quite scences. The speaker design on the Pioneer, I have mine on the sides, does look a little strange espeically as they are smaller than the screen itself. Overall I am happy with it.
