    I'm looking for a new TV at the moemnt but saw the Fujitsu PDS4233 in my local Seven Oaks Sound & Vision and was well inpressed with it! :cool:

    Does anyone own one of these sets or know of any good/bad features.

    If I went for a plasma is there anythings I should be aware of?

    What about connecting my equipment to it? My DVD player has component video output so that's not a problem, but what about my video?

    Also can you easily get a tuner with teletext for one?

    Any help or suggestions would be greatly welcomed.
    As I can get this on 0% interest free credit I'm very tempted to get one next week!:)

    Thanks for any replies,
    Glenn.

    Does anyone also know if there are any problems with screen burn on Plasma's like they are in rear projection sets?

    Is this true? I've seen both, although not side by side unfortunately, and couldn't notice a great difference. The fujitsu has a more consistent 'frame' shape and was cheaper (as far as I could find).

    I'm a bit concerned about the noise though. It's noiser than I remember in the shop - I couldn't hear anything in the shop. The fans are noticeable in the very quiet part of films. Anybody else think this?

    I'm very please with the picture quality though - even using a reasonably old VCR as tuner through the worst quality composite lead ever(!) it's perfectly acceptable. Connect the IScanPro though and the results are wonderful!

    Charles.

    Hi Bailych.

    Thanks for the info. I didn't notice the fans either when I was in the shop!

    If you don't mind could you tell me how much your local Seven Oasks Sound & Vision were charging? Mine are quoting £3780 for the Plasma & stand.

    Also don't be worried about people not thinking much Fujitsu plasma's, it's a new model and hasn't even been reviewed yet!
    Best I've seen yet.

    Thanks,
    Glenn.

    P.S. are you using a tuner with it or just piping it through your video?

    I got it for the price they advertised in What HiFi Sept:

    3599.95 (charcoal grey)

    plus stand at 134.95

    equals ...3734.90.

    I'm just piping through the video, but I did buy an IScanPro at the same time which I switch everything through (makes a *very* nice auto multiformat video switch box :D).

    Hi Bailych,
    so what's you impression now you've had it for a while?

    Good as you thought? Better/worse? And how annoying are the fans?


    Thanks for any info,

    Glenn.
