Hello all, Only second post, but i have been reading many pages/threads for a while now. i, like many others are in the market to buy a new plasma. i have narrowed it down to pv500 or pio 436. i went in to JL the other day and see some HD stuff on the pv500 (37")(which to someone who hasnt seen HD up and running before was blown away)(it was connected using component). Incidently they had both 37 " and 42 " in stock (JL Liverpool as of 7/10/05) and also the poi 436 was in stock but that was not on display probably next week (i was told). scalers/black levels/pixel resolution is all important, but I have a few questions of my own. hopefully owners of either model can answer for me. Which screen has the best possible picture overall from a number of sources ie. (preferrably through HDMI) which is what i'll be using. DVD SKY + FREEVIEW XBOX which is best at all of the above? I know this is a subjective thing, but im not talking reviews or whats on paper. im talking personal experience from owners of either. Or should i wait for next years screens that will probably be 1920 x 1080 native resolution for true 1080P (for the future broadcasts). But can the naked eye tell the difference from 10 ft away. Please HELP !!!!!!! All your comments will be welcomed from a new forum member !!!
