I am considering this panel as well as the PW/PHD6s', but as yet I have not been able to find a dealer with one on demonstration. I have however seen the 434HDE on a number of occasions including today with the 50" panel running an Hi Def, HDMI feed from Euro 1080. The problem I find with this panel is that not only does it seem a little "dull" when compared with the Panny but also that the picture always has a lot of noise and graininess, especially noticeable I find in the background of a scene. I have demo'd using the HDMI connection and although better it still was there. Is this the same with the MXE-1 or are there more adjustments/better processing? Or is it just me!?
