Well, I was all set to get the Panasonic 50" plasma, which has 1366 x 768 pixels, until I saw the new Pioneer 5000-EX 50" advertised, which has a full 1080p resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels! I know this is not news around here, but now I am stuck... Do I buy the panasonic for $5,000 (AUD), or wait for the higher resolution plasmas - $15,000 (AUD) - to come down in price? Realistically, how long might I have to wait to get the 1080p plasma for around $5,000 (AUD) you reckon? Would the differences with HD-DVD and HDTV be dramatic between 1366 x 768 and 1920 x 1080 pixels? Dramatic enough to wait for the prices to fall anyway?
