    Hell Viktor from Sweden here.
    I'm about to buy a new tv but could really need some help in the technology djungle.
    I would very much lika a tv >40", and therefore people say that the plasma is the best choice.
    It needs to be HD ready and it would be nice if it supported 1080p, because i will spend prodigious amount of hours playing PS3 on it.
    The imagequality is the primarything!
    I might sound like a total n00b, but hey you got to start somewhere =)

    Please enlighten me with your suggestions of products!

    I might be wrong but I don't think there's a plasma available in the country that supports 1080p. If there is, it will be very expensive. Someone else will give you more info.

    Edit : I just see you're from Sweden, in that case I'm not sure.

    Let me reformulate the question - which Plasma screens would you suggest that cost around 2 500 euro.

    Viktor just becasue a plasma doesnt have 1080 rows of pixels doesnt mean 1080p will not be displayed or indeed look fabulous have a look at Panny PHD8 and PV500 models but probably over budget in sweeden

    A friend of mine suggested Pioneer PDP-436XDE, know anything about it? Seems to be just a bit over budget though. I'll check up the screens you suggested.

    Okey, my main concern is just if it's worth the extra money. What will I gain when comparing with, say a, 2 000 euro plasma?

    Viktor make sure you view before buying the 436XDE and PV500 are top of the Plasma TV tree at the moment, the PHD8 is a bare panel but can offer greater flexibilty and results

    If you go for a 42" screen, make sure it's HD Ready and not just ED. For both Panasonic and Pioneer it means a screen resolution of 1024x768, rather than 852x480.
