I am looking to spend up to £2,500 on a 42 screen shortly. I have spent some time in a Sevenoaks and a Comet, primarily looking at a Pioneer 436 and a Hitachi 7200. My conclusions are that:- 1) the difference in picture quality between these two is marginal and if anything I actually preferred the Hitachi display. 2) Overall I preferred the display of two nearby LCD panels ! (Sorry if this is heresy in this forum) Now admittedly the LCD panels were smaller and therefore any pixilation would be less, but I have now discovered that there are now some 42 LCDs on the market and perhaps I have been looking in the wrong forum all along. I am sure there may be subtle differences that are apparent to the professionals on these forums, but I doubt the average man in the street (ie me!) really appreciates them. In trying to decide between two plasmas I now dont even know which format to go with and may therefore end up crawling back into my shell and sticking with CRT for another year.
