I am in the market for a 40-45 inch diplay. Popular opinion at most of
the high end home theater stores is that the Pioneer Elite 930 is the way to go; especially for movies. I was nearly convinced until I finally saw it side by side with a Panasonic TH-42PX500U. To my eye, the Panasonic actually looks better and costs about $1500 less. I am talking about out-of-th-box on both. I'm sure both could look better when adjusted. The reviews in popular magazines on both are good. Any
On a different note, I also looked into the 45 inch Sharp Aquios LCD. It can display 1080 unlike the plasma. I thought the higher resolution
was great but the picture looked a bit more artificial and two dimentional. In the end I thought I'd rather watch a 720 plasma than a1080 LCD. I was also a little turned off by the reports of LCD's inability to handle fast motion as well as a plasma. What do others think?
