I am looking at purchasing one of these LCD's and wondered if anyone could give me some advice on either of them. The DMTech has a built-in DVD player and was in John Lewis Milton Keynes at the weekend for £1095 incl 5yr warranty on the TV and 2yr warranty on the DVD player. The cheapest place I can find the Hitachi is at www.av-euronics.co.uk for £1275 incl delivery. The only downside I can see to the DMTEch it hasn't got an optical out for the builtin DVD player so you would have to use a seperate one to get 5.1 output. If the Hitachi is a better buy I will see if JL can price match as it is on their website, but out of stock at the moment!! Thanks Martin.
