    Im trying to decide which one to go for, i will be using it for movies, sky + and the xb0x360 when it arrives. Will the TH-42PWD8 be able to make proper use of the HD output from xbox360 or am i better off paying the extra cash for the HD version? :rolleyes:

    Thanks in advance!

    If you can afford the HD8 then go for it, not really for resolution but it gives a better image, less banding etc.
    You will only always wished you had if you don't! :)

    The only real downside to the PHD (other than the price) is the noise. It's a little noisier than the PWD but nothing too bad.

    The HD will display a better picture for xbox 360 (progressive 720p) than the PW8. Whether you'll really notice (the graphics on the 360 will be better than anything you've seen before anyway!) ... and whether it's worth the money ... well ... perhaps a demo at your local hi-fi/av store would help?
