I am in the market for a new TV and am trying to convince myself (and me lady) that plasma is the right way to go. The tie breaker is whether or not we can take it to the US if/when we move back (likely not for a couple of years). Every salesperson I have spoken to says the monitors (sans tuner) will work in the US with an external source (such as Direct TV) as long as they are multi-region. Specifically, I have been told this about the Hitachis (PD5200 or 5300), the LGs, and others. Are they just trying to sell me the TV, or is there merit to this? I am not looking to break the bank - just looking for something in the £2000 range that will give me good performance (I am not a technophile, so my main criteria are look crisp and not break), that I can take to the US in a couple of years. Any advice you can give would be MUCH appreciated. Thanks.
