    Hi everyone!!

    well ive ordered my RD50 but i was no way going to pay £250 for a stand, so for all those who have or havent got the sagem, can you recommend me a stand within the price range of £50 - £150.

    until i get my RD50 its gonna have to sit on a ugly brown corner table :(

    thanks guys and ladies ;)

    Hi

    I've also ordered the RD50. I originally ordered the stand as well because I bought it from the What Hifi show and got a discount (cost £100). Since then I've cancelled the stand as it is too high. When I get the TV - hopefully this week - I'll start looking for a stand. If I find anything suitable I'll post here - likewise could you do the same.

    hey!

    thanks for replying to my thread :clap:

    i did see a nice stand at comet in teesside park, it was £150 though but it was nice and long... and made of glass but i would like to know a nice stand for cheaps as i prefer to spend my money on either a dvd player or sound system.

    ps do you know when your getting your RD50? i was told within 10 days after the 15th .... WHICH IS ....TODaY :eek:

    I made a nice black and silver stand at work for mine :D

    I ordered mine from hifibitz,I presume we will be informed as to when to expect delivery of these btw? I'll need to know the exact day of delivery to take a day's holiday from work,or there will be nobody in to accept it :/

    Hi

    Just spoken one of the sales managers at Optoma. He said the TV's have now arrived and that I should be contacted by their logistics dept within 24 hours to arrange delivery (directly from Optoma in Watford). I'm therefore expecting it this week.

    On a seperate note, have you actually seen the RD50 in the flesh? I saw one at the Hammersmith show a couple of weekends ago and noticed that the demo unit did not have the "Unique furniture grade black high-gloss 'Piano Finish' cabinet" as advertised on the Optoma website. Today I confirmed with Optoma that only the RD65 has this finish. I must admit I'm a bit disappointed about this but it's not going to stop me buying the TV but I thought I'd let you know incase it makes a big difference to you.

    I'll take a look in Comet at the stands available. The ikea website has some as well, but I don't think they look that great.
