I am looking to replace my 3 year old Hitachi 42DPD3200 which has been a fantastic machine. I have a big room and wanted to get something between 50" and 60" (HD ready) but there is not a great deal of choice at this size and there is a large discrepancie in quality too. I quite like the look of the Hitachi 55DPD5200 but by the sound so of it, this is a 2 year old design so I guess ripe for replacement. However, my screen is wall mounted at the moment and so the scarts etc run into the seperate AV box with then just 2 cables running to the screen. The 55DPD5200 doesn't come with this AV box and has just one scart. Good for sky but not for DVD/VCR players etc. I believe the AV3000E box is available for the unit but I am not sure if you lose HD quality? Does anyone have any ideas or experience of big screens such as these?
