Whatever you go for Mikey try and stick with the larger screens if you can (unless cost or small room size dictate otherwise) as you will no doubt wish you had gone for the bigger screens after a few weeks ...good luck on whatever you get and welcome to the forumsMikeyg47 said:Hi Guys....
Ok..I have narrowed my search down to the final three screens. The Pansonic TH37pv500, the TH42pv500 or the PDP435XDE.
I just wondered if you guys could help me out in making this decision as I want to get one ordered asap
Thats interesting. My Panny pv500 42 just went bang, and they may write it off, leaving me choosing bewteen a new one and the new Pio. I have to say the Pio HD that was out in June, just couldnt hold a candle to the Panny with HD for me, it had more noise than a rock concert, but the panel looked soooo good, I love the style of it. I will have to check out the new Pio now, I can see.andrewkay said:I have seen demo of the TH42pv500 vs the PDP436XDE. Both were fed from Denon HDMI DVDs and both were truely stunning... but the Panasonic displayed a "ghost" image inside the screen when viewed from anything but directly in front (not image ghosting of the type caused by a poor picture). This was an image that seemed to be an inch behind the front of the screen where the main image is shown and it was visible when any static image or text was displayed for a few moment. None of this was visible on the Pioneer and both tvs were showing the same DVD in sych. It was explained by the retailer as being caused by the filter?
I ruled the Panasonic out based on picture and the fact that it is large for its screen size and the surround detailing is VERY messy (less so on 37in version).
I am now wondering about the disadvantages of the separate media box and also pondering whether it is better to get a panel without the extra internal workings of a tv. Any thoughts on this dilemma?
