I had a spare hour today so I thought I would nip into Currys to see the new 42PE50B. As I walked in I was immediately asked by a young chap if he could be of assistance? Why yes? Do you know much about plasma TVs? Yes I definitely do its one of my interests. Now I will be honest I consider my self a complete novice but am eager to learn so we head of for a demo. Standing in front of the viera (42PE30) I asked if this was the latest model .Yes was his answer? Asked if it was HD ready? Yes was his answer? Why I ask? Its because it can display 18.6 Million Colours? So I asked for a demo with the DVB tuner no need he says you can see what its like with a DVD? Off he trots and appears 5 mins later with DVD (shrek) and bush player another 5 mins the cheap scart cable was rammed into the back of the set and we watched 5 mins of shrek. When asked if Panasonic had any new models coming out he told me not for the foreseeable future, thats why Currys had spent so much on a TV advert with the Panasonic TV? I am glad I found avforums, otherwise I could have been one of those unwitting punters that believed all this tripe!! Make you think about how many people are being mis-informed about technology just to get the sale?
