rz 42py10x or PWD8


Standard Member
Please help.
Just about to purchase a PWD8 with JS RGB VGA converter, quintro box (need Scarts for SKY, DVD, XBOX)
but with all the extra components I need wondering whether it may be worth just buying the new rz 42py10x as it is HD ready or similar, and seems like it wouldnt cost too much more (1800)

I have Sky and DVD with surround sound so dont require speakers and Tuner.

My question is this

1.Is the PWD8 that much better than the LG and is it worth purchasing it and spending the extra on the HDMI board next yr when HD takes off?

2.Also will the HD quality be as good scaled down on the PWD8 than the LG which I presume would not need to scale down due to its native resolution?

3.I`m no expert and probably wouldn`t notice any real difference in quality and pref didn`t want to spend much over the 1300 mark but would stretch if I could justify it to 1800.

Many thanks for any replies
