So I went shopping for a 37" PA50. It's the most sensible choice. Reasonable priced. No HD, but I don't have that and I don't need that. Good design. Not great, but not ugly either. Good picture quality and basically all the features I need. So why did I order a PV500 instead...? Erm... maybe it has to do with the fact that I saw it today side by side with a Pioneer 435, an Hitachi PD7200 and a PW7? Anyways, a big thanks to all of you forum members. I've been reading these forums for several years now and I can't say it made my decision easier (blissful are the ignorant), but I sure did learn a lot!
