Here's my dilemma, either to buy a Plasma TV now or wait 6 months (I was initally going to wait 6 months... until I started looking now!). If I decide to buy now, should I pay around the £900 mark for one or round the £1500 mark for one. If I decide to go £900, I think I'd opt for the Samsung PS42Q7HD £880 delivered. If I decide to go £1500, I think I'd go for the Pioneer PDP-427XD. I can purchase this from Richer Sounds Belfast (www.richersounds.ie) for £1500 with a free table top stand and they have offered a black gloss unit to set it on for £100. I'll be mainly watching SD through Sky and the odd DVD. Although I do intend to get SKY HD within the next year. If I buy now, is it worth going for the higher priced Plasma? Another forum member is wanting a Plasma for the same sort of use and is opting for the Samsung. Also, I would hope that whichever Plasma I buy will do for at least 10 years and I may wish to connect a PC to it at some stage and the usual Home Cinema peripherals. Anyone know if much is going to happen with Plasmas in the next 6 months? Will fully compatible 1080p HD Plasmas be readily available and reasonably priced (£1500?) by then? Could the Pioneer PDP-427XD drop in price by much in this time frame? I have found this forum of great help so far, thank you for the very interesting reading. All help is much appreciated.
