    I've finally gotten the green light from the wife to take the plasma plunge. I've read countless threads on this forum. Thank you for your insights.

    I've narrowed it down to the following models:

    Pioneer PDP-4360HD and Panasonic TH-42PX60U

    I know both models have avid followings. I'm interested in knowing WHY you chose one set over the other.

    For the Pioneer fans, am I better off waiting for the PDP-4270HD?

    For the Panasonic fans, is the PQ on a properly adjusted 60U really worse than the 50U? At this stage would the TH-42PHD8UK be a better choice?

    Thanks for your help. I need to strike soon, before my green light fades...

    Johnny

    PS: I would love to 50", but our den is way too small for that.

    go with the PDH8UK, it is more adjustable than the other units.
