    Hi All,

    I'm looking to upgrade my current Sony 41" rear projection to a plasma display. I know people have their own preferences etc, but does anyone have any suggestions as to good displays in & around the £2.5k bracket? I've been considering Panasonic's, but this is based purely on the contrast ratio - is this a rather blinkered approach? What else do I need to be looking for specification-wise?

    Will I need to replace my current (and has always been flawlessly good) dvd player (a Sony DVP-S525D) for one with progressive scan? Do all plasma's use progressive scan? Would be very nice to get an understanding of that too! :)

    I'm currently using good quality scarts between dvd player and telly - is component going to be better with a plasma? What are the differences between the 2 methods?

    Sorry for all the questions, and thanks for taking the time to read...although not a newbie to home cinema etc I am new to plama's (as you can tell!). Hopefully I can get some good advice before taking the plunge!

    Any donations greatly appreciated.

    Cheers,
    Blast.
