Hi guys, expat living in singapore, I can get hold of a Hitachi 42pd3000 plasma for 2700 sterling equiv, with speakers/stand/tuner etc. I nearly bgt the Pany 42wd till i saw the Hitachi. The pioneer 433hde looked great on DVD but crap on cable(analogue)TV here. Q1. Is the lack of DVI port gonna make a big diff 4 future proofing, dont see any dvi dvd players on the horizon here? Q2. The kids/wife watch alot of normal cable tv here in Sing, which is all analogue cable(digital cable tv next year), is this gonna look crap on the Hitachi? It looked pretty bad on the pioneer 433hde, waiting to view on hitachi...? Q3. Should I wait till new models come out for DVI etc or just keep my 38" sony crt for a while longer. Must admit on DVD source Hitachi looked the best out of Pany/pioneer/jvc etc.. Thx for advice guys. Mike. PS- bout to move house so if gonna buy Plasma need to make decision soon.
