I just wondered why not many people are buying the PE50 and largely going for the PV500 instead. Its like £500 more and as far as I'm aware, its difficult to tell the difference between high def on HD and SD sets at a normal viewing distance of 10ft. Secondly despite no HDMI it'll accept HD through component and although HDMI is supposed to be theoretically better, it is not always the case in practice and only pixel peeping will find it. Again at 10ft most won't be able to tell. So I figure the high def will look almost identical across the board on all the 8th gen sets. Am I wrong?? After that SD as a rule looks better on a SD set so isn't it a great buy, or should I follow the herd and go for the PV500 as well! I prefer the TV's to the panels so am choosing between the PE50 and PV500 but possibly considering the PWD8 too.
