Good question, you've picked two of the best. You will need to view both, Panasonic much better contrast but big pixels and some see it flicker, Hitachi small pixels and very natrual colours. I have the Hitachi (or at least the 400E) many love the Panasonic. Both have strengths and weaknesses, I prefer the Hitachi......you'll have to decide what you like!


If screen burn worries you, buy a Panny. It's bulletproof. Also, blacks ARE black on Pannys.
Or maybe consider the Fujitsu P42VHA30 (it has Panasonic glass) available for around 2500 (inc. VAT) and has component, RGB SCART, composite and VGA connections. Quality unit, 'tis the one I'm buying!!!!
