    I have had a Hitachi 42pma400e for just over a year now and although im very happy with it the higher def Pioneers have caught my eye.
    My first question is how would you people value a year old, but mint condition display of this kind with a wall mount and component card? I know it makes little difference but it cost approaching 3k when it was new and there is very little difference between this and the newer 42pma500 that is currently around 2300 quid.
    2nd question is do we think the hastle of selling the Hitachi and fitting a Pioneer actually worth it?

    Any comments much appreciated :)

    I'd say if your happy with what you've got then stick with it for a while longer...unless the Pionneer does something that your Hitachi doesn't - such as support SkyHD for example...then shift it before it drops even more in value.

    And speaking of value...what you paid is irrelevant now...if its replacement is selling for £2300 then yours will be worth less than £1000 I'd say as without any warranty they are difficult to shift.

    Cheers, Lee

    Unless you're going to rush out and buy some hi-def DVD's and a player, I don't see what improvement you're going to make ?

    Yeh fair do's, I thought maybe I could swap the Hitachi whilst it had a value - I tend to mess for messings sake sometimes.
    Think ill possibly leave it for the time being - thanks for the replys :)
