As a lot of people seem to be looking for advice every day on this forum about buying a plasma screen, I thought it would be a good idea if members could post information on their own plasma and what you think are its pros and cons, not information that has been pulled out of a technical manual but pros and cons found when using in the home. Hopefully this will enable members to look in one place for up to date information about a specific model or ask questions before starting a new thread. If enough people respond, maybe a good idea to make sticky. I'll start with. Pioneer PDP433HDE. I selected this model after viewing quite a few plasmas for the following reasons, which I personally considered to be its pros. It works both as a large display but has the functionality of a conventional tv i.e teletext, wide screen switching, scart sockets, without me having to buy extra coverters. The picture is very tolerant to all kinds of different lighting conditions. The detail on images is very clear. You can manualy adjust the horizontal and vertical shift. You can have different settings e.g brightness, contrast, colour, sound etc for each of the av inputs. Sleep timer. Picture in picture. Cons Although the unit doesn't have any fans ( so it is meant to have a silent operation) it does generate a buzz when the image goes bright i.e a cartoon or live broadcast with a lot of sky in the background. I have spoken to several different sources who say this happens on all plasmas, it's either this or have fan noise. Does not auto select AV inputs. Black levels are more very dark grey than pure black. Hope this helps someone.
