Opinion on Panasonic TH-42PX20U/P? Other options??

 

DaveW
Hello all,

I am looking to purchase the Panasonic TH-42PX20U/P. Does the group here have any opinions on this? Should I be considering alternate models with similar features?

Also, I did like the Sony KDE-42XBR950, but is it worth the price?

Thanks for your help...

I too am interested in the TH-42PX20U/P from Panasonic. One item that concerned me, based on Panasonic specifications, is if you input a 720p signal (such as ESPN HD broadcasts) from anything other than a computer, this TV will display the signal as 480p. It will however accept a 1080i signal from all sources. My understanding is that for high action video (e.g. sports), 720p is probably better than 1080i, although I'm sure some might disagree.

I contacted Panasonic to confirm and the tech rep stated that it was true that a 720p signal will be reduced to a 460p output. I wish I knew why Panasonic did this, since I would probably buy it otherwise.
