The pdp433 has got top reviews in what hi fi and a friend of mine who was at a home cinema show was in a room full of plasmas and he said that the pionner looked the best, but the panasonic was a close 2nd and he thought the philips was the worst.. with greyish whites. What do you think of this? Is the pioneer the best plasma out there? How good does a dvd progressive image look on it? Having said that wha hifi gave the plasma good reviews they also have the 36zd26p toshiba a very good review and I that the faults on it were so bad that i returned it. Are there any faults on the plasma that will drive you nuts after spending that much money on it?? I sit pretty close to the picture and always have my room completely dark.
