    I have the following dilemma, and would like some help please....

    With the new Pana plasma I've just bought I've been offered the following:

    Package with the ES10 DVD recorder for £2249

    Package with the EH50 DVD/ HDD recorder for £2449

    Now, I am not sure what to do.

    I've read with interest that the EH60 could be on it's way soon, and I'd be pretty annoyed if I spent the extra £200 on the EH50 upgrade only for it to be superseded so soon.

    Coupled with the fact I don’t think an 80Gb drive is that large, nowadays – I think I’d wait if it was worth it.

    So – the question is, to those in the know:

    a) When will the EH60 be launched? (approximately)

    b) Any details on the specs? (I see Japan get a 300Gb HDD in theirs, but they also get a 200Gb HDD in theEH50 – whilst we get the smaller 80Gb)

    c) Any idea as to a price point of the EH60 when it's launched?

    Any ideas folks?

    The specs for EH60 is the same as EH50, but it has a 200GB HDD and DVI.
    It will be relaesed in Sweden this week.

    If You compare with the prices at "technikdirekt.de",
    You will se the price for the EH50 - 439 Euro
    and the price for the EH60 - 566 Euro.

    Difference 127 Euro which is about 86£.

    The difference should be the same in England.

    By way is the price in Swden for a EH50 - 330£.
    I have no price for the EH60 but a would expect - 430£.

    I have also read in this forum that the EH60 (UK version),
    maybe should have a digital freeview tuner built in.
    Personally I don't think this, I have asked this before in this forum
    and didn't get any sure answer.
    The Swedish model don't have this feature.

    I think there is a Freeview Tuner in this box - and I am wondering how much that will push the price up by - especially considering some other Companies will be banging out DVDR's with Freeview Tuners before Xmas. I think it will be a minimum of £150 more than the E50 and possibly as much as £100 more than that.
