    I have now had 3 Pioneer 434-HDE Plasmas. Two have had severe buzzing problems and 1 was a second hand unit with 125 hours on the clock and covered in scratches. I was promised a new 435-XDE but it turns out that the vendor only supplies 435-FDE models.

    I now see that the PW6 is available for just about 1/2 the price of the Pioneer 434 cost me. I have the option of cutting my losses and getting a full refund on the Pioneer.

    I purchased the Pioneer because of looks, HDMI and HDTV compatability. I have lost confidence with Pioneer now, so it's probably time to give Panasonic a go! Although its lacking in features, due to the massive price difference, I think I will give it a spin.

    What connections does the PW6 have? I currently use the S-Video, Component and RGB Scart inputs on the Pioneer for AV-AMP, X-Box and Telewest Digital. What PLUG-in board(s) do I need to buy?

    I have my XBOX NTSC'd using enigmah and run games at 480P/720P/1080I, so Panasonic Vierra seems out.

    Do Panasonic Panels buzz? By buzz, I mean an electrical buzzing noise that varies with the picture and is audible over normal listening levels from your seated position. I don't mind hearing a noise if you stick your head behind the screen to specifically listen for buzzing.
