No contest: The Pioneer is streaks ahead. Don't even consider the Philips model you have in mind

does it make any difference that the philips is 1080p and is 100hz set and the pioneer is only hd redy. is the pioneer really that much better. is plasma still far better than lcd even though most companies concentrate on lcd. any advice would be appreciated.

Can anybody tell me the difference in how long LCD and Plasma lifespans are?

Is Plasma still a good long term investment?

Both should last at least 50,000 hours each-though the maufcatureres usually state around 60,000 hours.

Doesn't matter that the phillips has 100Hz-Up against the Pioneer it's a Chamber Pot!

For what its worth, up until last week I had my mind set on a Full HD lcd 40" tv. The new Samsung F86 was a strong possibility. I then read this months What HiFi? and found it hard to believe that a plamsa that was 'only' HD Ready trounced the competition. Not wishing to take one magazines word for it, I trawled through three other reviews of this tv and found that they all reckoned that it was the best thing since sliced bread.

Not only was its HD sublime but one review also pointed out its very respectable SD showing, something that seems to be overlooked even though the majority of our viewing(at least broardcast viewing) is SD.


I shopped around and have now ordered this set. It cost me much less than the MRP (although a bit over my original budget- no surprise there!!). And the name of this wonder beast?

PIONEER PDP428XD

That is exactly what he is talking RUBBISH! Yes a LCD will often have a higher brightness than a Plasma but this is due to the fact that it is back lit. A LCD screen produces no natural light and in order for you to see what is on the screen it must be lit from behind which then passes through a series of filters to produce the colours you see, as where a Plasma screen porduces natural light just like our good old CRT and in my view I think this has something to do with why a Plasma tv's picture looks more natural when compared to a LCD.

So......if someone told you to put your hand into a hot frying pan too....you would do it?

You've bought the Pioneer purley on the basis of all it;s glowing reviews without having even seen and auditioned it for yourself..........Beware.....another poster here also bouth it and then referred to it as "What a dissapointment" I'm not saiyng you made a bad choice but to but something purely on the basis of a review is a bit nuts!
