    I'm in a real dilemma! I am considering Pioneer 435 - my assumption is that I go for the FDE because a) dont need digital tuner b) dont need media slot c) not fussed about remote and d) not fussed about black media box colour. I also assume from reading these forums that the actual panels for 435FDE and XDE are the same. Also need wall mount.

    Best deal I can see is webelectricals 3179.

    John Lewis do the FDE for 3795 but won't swap table mount for wall so I'd have to buy it.

    Is the 5 year guarantee essential for a plasma? I could always buy the 3179 and take out 3 year guarantee at end of first year for 550.

    Anyone used any of these with Tag McLaren DVD32R with PSM Module?

    Help!!!! Christmas is coming! :)

    Yeah forgot that - I also noticed a week or so ago they had this incorrectly advertised as a pioneer cinema surround system - the telesales guy told me this was a mistake! I am sure I could have held them to it! Still - with JL you can't buy now pay 12 months later :-(

    have I missed anything out in diffs between FDE and XDE?

    The XDE has a digital optical output on the media box, and picture in picture

    Yeah, I'm still waiting to find out what exactly comes out of this Digital Optical Out. i.e. Does it pass DD5.1 and DTS5.1 when HDMI is connected?
