    can someone tell me what plasma screens have DVI inputs, i was going to get the hitachi pd5000 solely for DVI but i hear the picture for sky+ isnt that good.
    Ive been use to watching my 36 pixel+ i dont want to spend £3000 on a plasma and find out the picture is to soft.

    Hi,

    The NEC 42XM2/S has DVI-HDCP, as the new Pioneer 434MXE will probably have - not confirmed yet. The Panasonic 6 series are able to be fitted with an optional DVI board, but this has issues with PAL sources at the moment. Hope this helps.

    I view Sky+ through RGB scart input to my 500E and am extremeley happy with the qaulity of the picture, far better than I had hoped for. And I am very picky about picture quality being a professional photographer!
    I use the DVI input from a Samsung 935 for DVD viewing and am blown away by it.........

    Best regards David

    It's not out yet, so no reviews. Check the 433, there'll be little change, and if you are in any form of hurry, you can get well priced 433's now.

    The NEW 43MXE-1 wont be seen in the UK for a few weeks yet - the Trade product launch date has still to be set and that will be its first outing in the UK.

    Best regards

    whats the 433 like does anyone know where I can find some reviews, Ive been looking for a Plasma for 2 weeks, first of all I was going to get a Panny 6 then I changed my mind in favour of the new fujitsu, then i hear that the dvi input for dvd playback is amazing, now it looks like the 433 is what Im after.
    I want to play games from my PC and watch dvds through dvi not to mention sky+.
    HELP ME PLEASE.

    Use the Search function at the top of the page - the PDP-433MXE (1024x768P) has been a firm favourite for the past two years; its our top selling unit.

    The 433MXE has always been that bit more expensive than the Panasonic PWD5 and PWD6 (852x480P) displays and some prefer the darker blacks the Panasonic offers.

    Keep in mind you need to budget for a few bits and pieces to interface your PC, SKY+ and DVD player; budget for up to £250 on top of the display price; though the 433MXE price is pretty good at the moment :)

    Also budget for a wall mount or table top stand - £150 to £250.

    Drop me a note if you want more detailed info on connectivity or a PDF brochure.

    Best regards

    Joe

    Where are you, it'd be a good idea to see it run.
