    Which HD Display would you buy if you'd have to buy tomorrow?

    OK, everything is already written about this, features vs features, blacks vs blacks, problems vs problems, but let's check percentage in a poll.

    I know some prefer Tiny Plasma TV :D , but let's stick to these two (by far most favourite) display models

    edit:
    Yes, I mean Plasma PANEL, not a TV set with media box etc.

    Thats not much choice! I assume you've got to make a decision on which of these two to buy? What about a pw7/pw8/pe50? Not everyone wants HD.

    No Steve, I just find this dilemma in every third thread where HD displays are mentioned, so wanted to see what percentage would come out.

    (I also think buying plasma with 480 lines is ridiculous)

    Fair enough. Perhaps the title should be 'Which HD Display..'

    So the pv500 comes under HD8 right? [Edit: Panel.. ok, read it now. :rolleyes: ]

    The PHD8 of course! :clap:

    Good question to be honest, i have been searching for a Tv for the last year and can't find one i am happy with, every TV i buy seems to have some annoying Quirk or stupid feature that i am sensitive to. If i could find a TV that didn't change contrast at its own accord, have some stuid digital motion feature that throws up digital artifacts, have faint lines running across the screen, dirty picture effect, discoluration at the edge of the screens, dead pixels and geometry defects i would spend £5000 on it without hesitation. Unfortunately i have alot of money to spend on a great TV and i can't find one any where, seems to me that quality control flew out the window a long time ago. Good luck on your search but unfortunately i can't recommend any of the 10 tvs i have went through over the past year.

    yes, that's the reality. the word "quality" lost its meaning since microsoft proved you can sell the same product in difference clothing several times to the same customer, but it is also not the reason not to buy any toys.

    Look at how bad the quality is on the picture though!

    You are right though in what you say.

    Actually I said I quite liked what I saw of the PY10 I think it was.

    I was kidding when I said I bet it is Samsung or LG origianlly, then I saw the banner and thought I had better edit it out in case I upset any LG owners.

    I'd like to know what is best solution for normal analogue tuner for Panny HD panels. For Pioneer there was a tuner card available, for Panny not.

    Skybox is anyway "must have" here but I am surprised there is no analogue option here.
