Totally agree I've had both 720p and 1080p sets here (all 1080p's now ) both plasma and LCD . The resolution isn't that big of a deal at a normal view distance as compared to black levels ,color ,and contrast,etc better to have a decent 720p set that does those things well than a 1080p set that does not .
My first PDP was a 50" 720p replaced by a 60" 1080p PDP. The 720P plasma wasn't bad at all better than most 1080p LCD sets . I think Plasmas handle the 1080p/720p thing better though at least I thought so on my sets
It seemed to me the difference was more noticeable on the LCD sets to *me anyway
It will be interesting to see what Panasonic comes up with they are experts at premium and professional video processing
just like Sony I wouldn't write them off . One only needs to look at one of the Panny VT/ZT sets or one of their professional panels to see that. I can tell you they are well utilised in corporate venus . Some of those bad boys will do 1000 nits.
