I'm looking to replace my Toshiba 26" LCD sometime this year and have narrowed it down to either the Panasonic PZ700 or the Pioneer 428XD. I have a few questions I was hoping could be answered. I currently own a Pioneer DVD LX60, Wii, XBOX 360 and virgin cable. In the future I would look to get Sky HD as well as a Blu-Ray player. This will all go through my Onkyo 875 amp so any SD/720p pictures could be scaled to 1080p. I have a 5.1 speaker system and almost never use the tvs speakers. 1) It seems to me that the Pioneer has the advantage of the better picture/contrast but by how much? 2)How significant is the option of ISF calibration, and is it worth the expense at around £250? 3) The Panasonic has a 1920/1080p resolution compared to the 1024/768 of the Pioneer. Does this matter from a distance of say 9 feet/3 metres? 4) Ultimately, which has the better picture. The deeper blcaks and contrast of the Pioneer or the higher resolution of the Panasonic? 5) As I'm in no rush to buy a new set, (Tosh works adequetly but is too small), would I be better to see what's out this spring? Lastly, I've seen the Pioneer for £1,600 inc pedestal and free 5 year guarentee, whereas the Panasonic is £1,500 and comes with pedestal + speakers but no 5 year guarentee. Which would you go for?
