    Guys,

    Has plasma pq changed much over the generations of models???

    Reason I ask is that I'm considering getting one, but am unsure whether to purchase the latest state of the art model (which I probably can't afford) or get a slightly older model that I can!!!

    Will the pq difference in last years model be much different to this years???

    Thanks
    Stace :D

    I'm no expert but to my eyes things have improved a lot in the last few years. 2 years ago I briefly considered a plasma but the price and very clearly sub-CRT PQ put me off.

    It's different now - prices are much, much closer and the PQ of a decent plasma is very close to a decent CRT but it's bigger and in a lighter, thinner and geometry defect-free package. In many ways the crucial thing for me was that plasmas finally seem able to cope with Sky etc as well as looking nice when fed with a decent DVD.

    To answer your question, I think things have improved enough that one generation behind the current models - the PW6, for example - is excellent and won't disappoint.

    Plasmas are a lot better these days. Although not perfect they do not suffer from a lot of problems that some crts do. The latest plasmas like the pw7 and Vierra when properly set up and calibrated can give picture quality of a decent CRT set.
