Hello all, I was almost already decided to buy Panasonic 42PHD8 but after reading specifications of Pioneer PDP-436XDE, I think that Pioneer would be better deal for me. I know that PHD8 is excellent panel, but Pioneer has already all possible connections ready in the receiver media box so I think that Panasonic is not much cheaper than Pioneer, either. I would like to know that who manufactures Pioneer plasma panels and is the included media box Japan made ? If you have compared picture quality of these panels, is there much differences (black levels, watching football, etc.) ? Thank you in advance.
