Ive been shopping for a 42" plasma, and i've got it narrowed down to 42px60u (hadnt given much thought to the 600u, but i like that it has a vga port) and the pioneer 4270HD, and i really like what the pioneer brings to the table, but i like the panasonic's price point better.
i was reading about the pioneer and it says its hdmi can accept 1080p sources...could someone explain this to me? as this is a 720p tv i'd assume it accepts the source and downscales it? Ive seen no mention of this on the panasonic. and is this feature and others on the pioneer really worth the price difference ($600 difference)
i'll be getting hd directv with dvr , and doing some light console gaming and dvd watching on the set, the room doesnt really have a problem with light or anything, and i'll be sitting about 7.5 - 8ft away.
