    Does anyone know of any retailers that currently have the pioneer 436xde in stock? I am fed up with ringing up retailers whose sites claim to have them in stock to be told at least a 2-3 weeks delay if lucky. Anyone have any ideas, I gave up trying to get the PV500.

    Comet have them in-stock,

    I've just been down to demo the usual 42pv500 and PDP436XDE...

    I must say that it's tough to make a decision, top marks to the Newport Comet branch, they have the SKY HD demo setup on about 20 Plasma displays, so comparing HD material over HDMI was easy.. they even let me tweak the display settings to my hearts content..

    That's the first time I have heard that the Sky HD demo is being broadcast!

    Didn't think the boxes had been produced yet either.

    So what is Sky HD like then?

    Its not the Sky HD, its from a PC, saw this in Comet in the Buchanan Gallery in Glasgow on Saturday. Loops round in about 5 mins I reckon. They even had an HDMI splitting box to ensure that the signal got to the PV500 and 436XDE in the best possible way. (quite impressed for Comet to be honest).

    Their price is pretty OK too, 2700 for XDE + Speakers + Stand.

    Same here. Knocked them down to £2700 but paid £25 for earlybird delivery. Didn't take the insurance. Will ring my insurers or purchase elsewhere.

    just bought my 436xde from prcdirect the shop in ilford 2540 with wall bracket and drove it home same day, have yet to set it up, waiting for some quiet time.

    one thing I read about the gas settling if laid out flat, which I had to do to get the box in the back of the car for about 30min, will this affect it or should it be ok.

    Anyone?

    Thanks guys, I was looking for somebody who had a 436xde in stock.

    I have just ordered mine from PRCDirect and I should have it in a couple of days. I just know time is going to come to a stand still now :)

    I have had 4 screens off av-sales in the past be it for myself or my family and have great service but this screen they just cannot seem to source.

    They lady I spoke to said that they had 10 ordered over 2 months a go and so far only six have turned up and they have no idea when the others are due.

    Dont worry about the gas - it's a myth!!

    Be more worried about having laid the plasma on its back in the car - this has been known to crack the screen!! Better open the box and find out ... :oops:
