Well then. As some of you may know I have been on the forum quite a bit recently, and have recently started this thread about SD material on panels. I am very concerned about SD picture quality, as although I have SkyHD, 75% of my viewing will be SD material. Virtually all the decent brand HD panels have excellent HD pictures, so it's the SD performance that's going to sway my purchasing decision. I went to my local TV shop yesterday and checked out the PS42Q7HD, and although I can't say I was blown away by the freeview picture, it is more than acceptable and easily the best SD picture I've seen on a HD panel of any kind. It's something I feel I could easily live with, especially as I don't even have an aeriel and all of my broadcast TV will be viewed through the Sky box, which presumably is a little bit better than freeview for most channels. I know that there will be some PX60 owners that will say that the SD picture on their sets is better, and it may be so, but according to my eyes that's not the case, and in any case I think the PX60 is a butt-ugly set and the Samsung looks much more stylish. Plus a guaranteed absence of purple snakes! I can get this set for about £870 delivered, or if I want finance about £1039 over 3 years (I think £160 extra to pay over 3 years is quite acceptable). Questions: 1) Do you think it's worth hanging on 4 to 6 weeks to see what Panasonic bring out in their new range? Even if their stuff is similar to the current range, it may drive prices down a bit more for panels in general? 2) The only downside I can see with the Sammy is that is only has 1 x HDMI. Obviously that has to be used by SkyHD. So if I want an upscaling DVD player connected as well, I will have to use component. Component supports 720p, right? I need another player for downstairs anyway as I need to pick up one that plays my MPEG4 downloads - so seems like a good opportunity to pick up an upscaling player. Any thoughts?
