    I just did a quick search on new 1080p plasmas. I looked up the Panasonic TH-50PX50 and the native resolution is 1365 x 768. That's not 1080p. ?

    So I'm asking in a new thread what 1080p plasmas are currently out there that are between 42" inches and 60" or so.

    Nothing comes up at Crutchfield, Best Buy, New Egg. ....nothing 1080p.

    I am in the market for a new tv. I plan on getting something 1080p in a few months. no doubt, by november.

    Any other info would be a great help.
    Thanks.

    They had one at display at CES 2006 last month but its not out yet.

    I cant remember if it was Panny or pioneer maybe both.

    They haven't been released yet

    I think Panny and Pioneer are both coming out with 1080P Plasma displays, but plan on waiting a while longer (another 3-6 months).

    As an alternative, you could get the NEC now which will take a 1080P signal over component or DVI and at least display it (at 768P). I don't think the present offerings from Panny or Pioneer will do that.

    Remember, especially if you're contemplating a 50", the difference between 1080i and 1080P will be negligible unless you're planning to sit closer than 5-6 feet away from the TV.

    You don't think the current
    Panasonic TH-50PX60U (came out a couple weeks ago, now at www.circuitcity.com) can take a 1080p and display it at... 720p or 768p ?

    I can wait 6 months. I just need to fill my brain with some info.

    There's a Westinghouse 42" for only a couple grand right now that does 1080p. But it's an LCD.
