    Hi guys

    Thought I would start a thread on the best prices for the NEC and the Panny which seem to be really popular. Prices should include details on whether it is screen only or not and be rounded to nearest pound

    NEC 42VR5 Panel only: Office-online: £1582; Av-Sales £1584
    NEC 42XR3 HD Panel only: Progressive AV: £2499; Ivojo: £2506;
    Panny 42 Pw6 Panel Only: Richer Sounds £1299
    Panny 42 PwD7 Panel Only: Discount AV £1450
    Panny 42 PHD7 Panel Only: Ivojo £2463
    Pioneer 43MXE1 HD Panel Only: Office-online £2111

    Most of these admittedly don't include delivery like Richer Sounds, but I've left this out as quite a few people seem to want to pick their plasma's up so as not to give up additional margin.

    Any advances / thoughts? It would be great to keep this thread going so any better prices are updated here.

    Finally, as loads of dealers will not doubt reply, its not all about price but service and aftercare, but price is still a major factor. Also, it'll help with price promise etc with Barclaycard.

    What about the fact that av-sales (and others) include free module for the panny but AFAIK RS doesn't so you're not comparing like with like. You have to pay out more to get a RS panny working.

    Otherwise good idea :thumbsup:

    if prices included delivery it should be stated as RS is the only nationwide chain (ie you collect despite where live and IIRC you have tooo)

    Also consider warranties and post service support...both of which are very important when spending this amount of money ;)

    If I were to buy again it would be from one of the following:

    AV-Sales
    Liam @ Prog AV
    Joe @ TMF
    MAW @ TBPAV

    Personally AV-Sales have been very good on post service support, but you probably already know that ;)
