    Can anyone recommend a good plasma retailer near Leeds?

    I'm looking for a 42 or 50" screen, would ideally like to see some panels and TV's side by side and do some comparisons of the picture quality.

    regards,

    Greg

    Hi Greg,
    I've been "shopping" for my plasma for weeks now and eventually went to Empire to purchase (Panasonic 42PX60-CAB). :clap: I looked in a couple of stores for demos and was quite amused at what went on. I.E LG showing a Philips Demo Disc, Hitachi showing a LG disc, etc. :rolleyes:
    I spent more time on this forum to get myself "up to speed" on what the best models were in my price range then headed to Empire in Bradford to purchase. Ended up walking out not wanting to part my cash to staff so arrogant :mad: but went over to the Roundhay store and met a lady who would answer every question and even offered to hook up other AV equipment if I wanted to see different feeds. :)

    cheers, I've done the same, was watching the LG demo on a Panny at Currys yesterday!!!

    I live really close to Empire Direct, will pop down, don't suppose you remember her name do you?

    Did you get a good deal on the PX60CAB?

    regards,
    Greg

    If you want side by side comparisons sound and vision at Farnworth Bolton has most plasmas on show (not panel only) worth a 40 min run down the M62 from Leeds for this type of purchase.

    2-3 weeks actually, do you really think costco is going to sell panels??? they want mass market easy to shift stuff, not specialised panels!!!

    Costco are good for few things, free 3 year warranty with great returns policy and cheap prices.

    I wouldn't go there for demos, only for purchasing :)

    I'm no expert, there are tons of threads on here re the difference, but in a nutshell, it's a display panel, no decoder, no sound, just a "panel" that displays whatever you send to it.

    I don't recall ever saying I went to Currys looking for a specialist panel, hence this thread asking for where to go to look for one!

    Regards,

    Greg

    Sevenoaks Sound & Vision
    62 North Street
    LEEDS
    West Yorkshire
    LS2 7PN

    Telephone: 0113 245 2775

    They have a good demo setup but not a vast range but tend to be the quality end of the market. (Fujitsu and Pioneer Plasma.)

    Fisher Electrics (was Jones of Oakwwod)
    Moor Allerton Centre
    Leeds 17

    Not exactly a bargain for 42PX60cab but authorised Panasonic dealer (for 5 year warranty which I got, only just!) and willling to negotiate. I paid about £100 more than electosaver in Bradford but Fisher had it in stock, leant me a ped and stand until they get my cab and are generally lots more helpful than Comet' which are about 3 shops down the parade. So far so good! No purple snakes either!! Yet!!
    Probably more bargains to be had in next couple of days though so keep looking! I dont have 'buyers regret' yet!!
