Guys I'm in a dilema and I hope somebody will help. My last purchase was made with the advice from this forum and I hope it can help again. I've got 3.5K to blow at Comets on a new plasma, because of an insurance claim on my old plasma. Now they stock the SONY KDE-P42XSI and the PANASONIC TH42PE30. My question is short. If you had the choice to buy one, which would you go for?
