Hi, Glad I found these forums (or rather they were recommended to me)... I have a budget of £2000 (although I won't discount something at £2010) and I am not sure what to get. This budget has to include a floor stand if it is not provided with the screen. I have personally narrowed it down totwo choices. The first being the Hitachi 42PD5200 and an alphason stand (where is the cheapest for the screen? I have found it for 1700ish here: CLICK ME. The second choice is a samsung 50" SP50L7HX DLP Rear Projection set. Is this better or worse than the plasma option? In an ideal world I would get a Panasonic Viera 42" that is HDTV ready but I can't find one that is under two grand. The low res one is just about two grand including it's stand. Now...I know nothing about these kind of TV's apart from what I have read so I am hoping you guys know more than me and will suggest the best for my budget. It *must* be HDTV ready. Equipment I will be connecting to it include: sky+, PS2, DVD player, DVD recorder. I have a PC with DVI output and I would like to use this with the screen but I have read that the Hitachi I am looking at specifically says not to for some reason. It is not a deal breaker if I can't plug in my PC but it would be nice. I don't want an unknown brand, even if it is a rebadge of good quality kit. I like my technology to look stylish also. Thanks for reading all that! All and any advice appreciated. Oh. While I can afford to pay outright I would like to pay on credit (I gave up smoking a month ago and I want to feel I am getting something with the money I am not wasting on health sticks. That probably makes no sense to anyone but never mind). I am only interested in credit though if there is somewhere offering it interest free over at least 24 months.
