Question about Pioneer PureVision PDP-4340HD 43 in. Plasma HDTV
I am trying to find out is my Pioneer PDP-4340HD is capable of displaying a 1080p. If can than I will buy Toshiba A30 HD DVD player if not I will buy cheaper A-30 model which can display only 1080i
Features of Pioneer PDP-4340HD Unique among today's HDTVs, the
Pioneer PDP-4340HD runs on a 72Hz vertical refresh rate. That's an
exact multiple of the 24 frames per second at which films are
displayed, enabling the panel to use a video-processing technique
called 3:3 pull-down (instead of the 2:3 pull-down
used in previous 60Hz displays). In English, that means you should see
a more stable picture when viewing DVD movies and other video material
that was originally shot on film. Unfortunately, that didn't seem to be
the case in our tests (see Performance for more).
This panel shares with its like-size, similarly priced competition a 1,024x768 native resolution. That number of pixels bests less expensive 852x480 EDTV models and results in sharper high-def images (but not in sharper DVD or standard TV images). Even a count of 1,024x768 pixels can't display 720p, the lowest high-def resolution, in full detail, but it's as high as plasmas get in this screen-size range.

Is not capable, i think.
