For some months i have been trawling these threads and viewing various 42" plasmas in many different stores and had finally decided on a Pio 435XDE. That was until this afternoon when i popped into a Hughes which was inputing HD1 to a Pio435XDE. WHAT A PICTURE! They were also piggy backing it to a PIO505 via Component (or so they said)to show the difference(and there was!). Having read that i would be blown away by HD was an understatement! DVD via DVI looked good but as i watch a fair bit of tv/footy, Sky/Freeview just didnt seem good enough at the moment when compared to HD! Come on Sky-hurry up!
