    After weeks of delving into plasmas, I'd finally decided on a the Pioneer-435XDE, for around £2,900.

    I've just found out that the price does'nt include speakers, which cost an extra £200 or so. Total price now becomes £3,100.

    So should'nt I just get a Panasonic TH-42PHD7 which is £400 less (not including speakers)? I might even get a scaler as well.

    My only requirements are:

    1. Should connect to HDMI (which it does, if the boards ever get shipped)
    2. Must be futureproof (Not sure if it is HDTV proof)

    What does everyone think?

    If you are going to buy a Plasma then you should have a 5.1 surround system and speakers to match! Seems a waste of money otherwise (unless you have a partner that hates little boxes all over the place!).

    I suggest you go and view both plasmas in a quality shop to see which you prefer the best. As always it has to be suitable for your eyes and not what some others eyes tell them.

    I have the Pioneer 435XDE and am very happy with it (no speakers) but as I say it is your call..... go use your eyes!
