    I am in the middle of being confused about getting a plasma....
    too many trees in the woodland.

    All I read about from people is how HDTV is about 3-5 years away and yet all these same people seem to own or are waiting on a delivery of a new HDTV ready PV500.

    Why not go for the PWD8 or TH42PE50 and save some cash until HDTV is out then get the latest and greatest updated plasma ?

    I personally dont like to say buy this screen or that.... but what I would say is that in general stay away from cheap screens... the likes of Daewoo, Goodmans and Tiny (which thankfully went bust) and do some research on the more well known screens ( Panasonic and Pioneer seem to be the most popular here). I myself own a Panny 42pv500 and I love it to bits while others have other screens they like just as much..ps decide if you want a High Definition screen as this will most certainly make a difference to price of any given make...pps when you do get one make sure you start the run in process as soon as you get it...plenty of info in this forum as what to do....good luck :)
