Hiya GF,


Nice to see you here. :)


There has been mention of resellers offering the Panasonic 42" Plasma display for about that price (give or take $100 or so), using a Dell discount.


Most members here have found that the Panny has the best picture quality of any 42 incher out there. Definitely worth investigating futher before plunking down that kind of cash.


Happy shopping! ;)

The Sampo has reasonable contrast ratio (600:1), but it is obviously no match for the Panasonic (3000:1 contrast ratio).


I have one on order (been having problems with that vendor, so I don't know if I'll actually end up getting that unit).


I got it for the same reason, it is CHEAP...


Another bonus is that it has DVI input!


I was told that the picture was grainy (I'm assuming that this is a result of flickering pixels, or because of the source). I plan to try it on a variety of sources and compare it to my current Fujitsu plasma.


It is also supposed to have a better scaler (but bad deinterlacer...) - since it is able to handle many PC resolutions properly.


Anyway, good luck!
