I am starting to loose my rag with panasonic who have completely mis-informed me about my repair this week. It has gone from a situation where they told me that the repaired unit would be back in my hands by the end of today. However, today I have finally established that the PJ still has not been assigned to an engineer!!!!!!!!. In fact one rep told me it got there Tuesday, another said Thursday So, I have spoken to my dealer today and they have asked me to go along tomorrow and they will firstly give me a loan unit, or secondly, offer me a replacement 'alternative' machine as they no longer deal with Panasonic - i.e infocus, Sharp et al. There is the problem. I am stuck between knowing what to do. They have the rather good Sharp Z91E which has a superb picture but I cant help but feel that a 4:3 panel on an 800 x 600 machine would not be the right purchase. However, saying that, the machine has a superb picture to boot and I really cant work out how much resolution - or lines I am likely to loose if I switch the Sharp into 16:9 mode, as most of my viewing is PAL 16:9 DVD on a 16:9 screen + some x-box/dreamcast gaming. Panasonic have told me that if my dealer is happy to replace the unit with an alternative machine, then they are happy too, depsite bull-****ting me all week. Would you buy a native 4:3 machine now ? Thanks, Cap Someone/anyone advise me. I have a night to sleep on it but dont know what to do. It seems that the alternative 16:9 machines such as Sanyo Z2, HS20 are too far away unless he will oblige us with a credit note of some kind. cant reply tonight as going to see Kill Bill as need to get out and chill with wife and friends over a few beers. Thanks in advance.
