It now looks like only Panasonic will be offering 46" Plasmas but it seems not across the range. No one else at CES 2009 launched any 46" models so I am now assuming they will not be doing so in the future. My first option then would by default be the 46" G10 and I am now wondering how this set will compare in terms of black levels with the new onslaught of upcoming LED Backlit LCD models from the likes of Samsung, LG & Toshiba? To be honest, I have now given up any hope for a 42" or 46" Kuro set from Pioneer which I would have jumped on and even waited till the end of the year for but I am now really fed up of hoping I will ever get a Kuro within my size limitations. I am a little upset that there is no 46" V series as aesthetically at least it is far better looking than the drab G10 (imo)!
