Have a Panasonic PWD6 Plasma 42" love it - have had it for over two years .. still going strong amazing screen ... just ordered SkyHD - do I buy new HD screen now, or wait until I ned to ...

Please advise, as I will be runnig my 360 and SkyHD through component on the PWD6 ...

If I had to change which model of display would you recommend, as I have a bracket that my display is using - so hopefully I wouldn't have to go out and buy one again , just use the one I have - but which display

Any advice would be appreciated



As I have to say that seeing that my PWD6 is over two years old the image is amazing , I mean my mate has a Samsung HD screen , and every time he is down he looks at my screen and says the picture quality is amazing for a SD plasma .. well worth the £2700 I paid back then ...

Hopefuly when I get SkyHD installed August 29th, I will get the box with HDMI and Component as I want to run SkyHD through my new Sony amp component way.

So you think I should stick with want I have and wait .. and I'll be happy with the HD on my PWD6 - interesting appreciate your advice ..

Suppose the obvious choice would be a PHD8 - they are great value at the moment.

I have a PW4 that has done about 8000 hours and the picture is still fantastic :clap:

I too am thinking about getting a PHD8 (seems like excellent value a the moment) but I am wondering how much better it is going to be. I will probably get a scaler of some sort and eventually get sky HD.

I'd honestly keep your display and wait until 1080p panels come out. 720p is awesome on your current screen :thumbsup:

My PWD6 has been paired with a scaler and the picture is fantastic. :)


Really appreciate all your advice ... on ething though want is a scaler and do I require one and how much are they

Regards again
