    For a new TV, I would think DVI input would be listed there.

    They're listed at Sony Style at $8k for the 42" and $6k for the 32".

    The April issue of Sound & Vision has an article on plasma displays. According to the article neither one of these two displays has a DVI connector. They aren't listed in the features at SonyStyle either. I haven't read the entire article, but they estimate that the street price for a 42" plasma TV will be about $3k in 2005.

    I've heard and read that there are hidden costs with Plazma's and a few bugs (brightness is one of them).

    IF I was going to buy one I would wait a few years. New technology tends to get MUCH better after a few years.

    The Renalt Alliance(??) was the car of the year by Car and Driver but after 2 years and multiple bearing problems (along with gas tank problems) you could not give it away.

    If you are thinking of spending $10K - why not wait and buy twice the TV in 2 years. Spend $3K on a super screen now.

    There is no hidden cost with plasmas. What you are now seeing by most manufactures are 3rd and 4th generation models. Brightness and contrast on most of todays plasmas rival those of todays CRTs.
