Please don't vote cold without explanation. Plasmas typically have better pictures than LCDs, deeper blacks, and scale SD (ie normal TV) far better, they have a 100-,000-60,000 hour life span in case you were worried. This model has better sound than the more basic PQ3000. It is 1080i and not 1080p but currently only Blu-ray takes advantage of 1080p and even PS3 don't really make full use of it. Normal TV, DVDs, most games are all better on a 720p set like this than a similar 1080p set
(I'd look out voucher deals as there is usually some, not sure if the £70 off when you spend over £700 is on but if it is best to find something you want for another £45)
