    OK. So I finally did it.

    My to-James-from-James present for getting a promotion was......

    a Pioneer PDP506XDE 50" Plasma screen :D

    Picked it up form Staples Corner in London and managed to get a pretty excellent deal on it with the wall mounting kit.

    During yesterday day, I had tested the 43" against the 50" as I had reservations about the size and quality (especially since I'm using cable TV input).

    We sit circa 3m from the screen and the picture quality is stunning. Needless to say DVDs are lovely anyway, but the TV quality is perfectly fine at this distance.

    Really happy at the moment and very glad we opted for the 50" over the 43".

    Thanks for all your help and advice guys :)

    I'll post some pics later, but perhaps I'll wait till it's properly wall mounted (at the moment it's sitting in the bottom half of the box it came in!!)

    Thanks again

    James :smashin:

    I like the stand. It says, I spend obscene amounts of cash on my tv, but I'm still down to earth.

    As far as I'm concerned, it's perfect. The blacks are black.

    The Sin City photo above was taken this morning with blinds open and light coming in.

    Good enough for me :)

    keepin' it real!

    Only got it home last night at about 6:30pm, then I had to go straight out. How painful was that??

    It will be wall mounted today hopefully, along with the speakers.

    Pictures look awesome just with the plasma in the box :) I ordered mine last Tuesday but couldnt get paper work back before Friday so having to wait ( I HOPE) for delivery on Tuesday. Will be taking a day off work to take delivery.

    It will be on the swivel stand until moved house and then will deffinetly be going up on the wall :) Theres me making sure we go for the house with the biggest lounge and theres my partner looking at the garden, kitchen etc :)

    I will be posting pictures up this Tuesday once all setup.

    Has anybody or does anybody know someone who has oreded through buyyourav.com? I have read mixed reviews that they have taken the money but no goods had been delivered for two-three weeks? Im a little worried as they have already taken my deposit :( and I dont have any proof they have it in stock. Only the guys say so on the phone....

    Look forward to some more pictures of people who have the 506XDE....

    Where have you ordered from to get that quick turnaround? I was told that they was about a 3 week turnaround.

    Whoops: rea dthe full post! i would check with them if i were you mate. Av-sales said that they were rarer than hen's teeth at the moment, with each shipment form the factory going out immediately, so they were always waiting for stock.
