I'm just about to spend out a small fortuner on a 42pd5200. (Our flat is finaly finished and we'll be in next week- at last!) We'll be watching TV through freeview and DVD through prog scan component. I can't afford nearly four grand for the Pioneer and the new panasonic is a bit to bulky for wall mounting.. so I decided on the Hitachi. I geuss I'm just looking for a bit of reassurance before I blow next years beer money.
