    There has been plenty of threads discussing whether the new Hitachi 5200H was true HD or not, etc - but I havnt actually seen anyreviews, or any comments from people that have one.
    SO - has anyone on here actually got one/seen one/seen any reviews on one.
    I'm veyr close to buying one this week - but i just want extra assurance I shouldnt spend the extra on a V500 or 7200...............

    (there doesnt seem to be anywhere in Northants to demo plasmas!!!!)

    Got One

    Yes it does do Hi Def. Picture is stunning once set up correctly. Looks way better than the Samsung, but that is personal opinion.

    Heres an email answer from Hitachi as to its Hi Def compatability.

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    Thank you for your email.

    The difference between the 5200E and the 5200H is as follows. The 5200 can accept 1080i @ 50 / 60 and 720p @60. The 5200H can also accept 720p @ 50 through the DVI input only. It is HD Compatible.

    I apologise for any inconvenience or dissatisfaction this matter may have caused you but trust that the above information has helped to clarify the situation.

    Regards

    Consumer Affairs Team

    Sorry Stampax but no pictures yet. My current set-up is in complete dissarray so would not show it in its best light......Im in the middle of moving house! There are several pictures posted by other members in the thread 'Get Your PLasmas Out for the Lads' also a chap called Duncan Wardle has posted some really nice shots of this model and can be found by doing a search in the forums.
