OK - so after reading all the threads I have to say there is one overriding question. Is it sensible to buy a plasma screen right now ? With all the questions about compatibility and future proofing, is it not sensible to wait and see. From what I can gather all the big manufacturers are releasing new models in the next 3 months or so that should be high def ready and have a number of inputs. I would take it that they will also feature next generation picture enhancements (whatever form they may take.) Am I insane or is this not the case ? As I've mentioned before on here I was a phone call away from spending £1500 and then read a bit more to discover the news on the new models. There seems to be a lot of people in the same boat on this as well. Is there really a benefit in buying right at this moment ? There are an awful lot of you out there (in fact just about everyone) who knows more about this than me - any comments ??
