Well, after months of reading and trawling the internet and this forum, I finally took the big plunge and ordered the Hitachi 42pd5200 screen yesterday. Ordered it from NexNix at 11.30am yesterday and the screen arrived at 9.30am today. NexNix even gives you a consignment number where you can track your shipment on the Web. Can't ask for more in terms of efficiency in delivery. Paid £1988 including delivery - savings of £300 compared to RS. Thanks Andy from Nexnix for the good service!! Took me an hour to set it up. Mind you this screen is heavy and I was alone at home. I couldn't wait for my wife to come back to 6pm to help me. I was like a little kid wanting to play his new toy I never knew lifting a Plasma Screen onto the Desktop Stand was so much work - I think I am feeling a slight dull pain at my back . But I think its worth it! Thanks to Alan who shared with me pictures of his 42pd5200 before and after unpacking. I would have had great trouble getting the screen out of the box if not for the pictures. PQ is excellent - even out of the box. Initially, SKY was connected via composite input - result as expected was not good. Then I changed to Scart (RGB) and there was a noticable improvement in the PQ. The colours and picture suddenly became more sold and defined and more three dimensional. As for my Sony DVD player, I used the composite input. Very good PQ. Changed to component inputs (paid £50 for the Cambrdige Audio cables from RS down the road). Slight improvement. Frankly, it is not noticable unless the picture is paused! With component input, there is more details in the picture. But in a fast moving video, I doubt I can see any diferrence at all! My audio goes thru a Yamaha RXV 440 and Whaferdale 8.3 Diamonds Fronts and Centre and Tannoy rear speakers. Old 5.1 Yamaha amp but good sounding. My only problem now is that I have no proper place to place my center speaker. It is now sitting on the floor! It is not perfect but I have no choice at the moment. There is no place in my TV cabinet at the moment. Maybe it's time to upgrade my TV cabinet. I have been watching the screen the whole afternoon. Overall, very pleased with the PQ, the quality of the product, the ease of use and the look of the screen. I was deciding between the Panny PW6 and the 42pd5200 and in the end I chose the 42PD5200 because of its looks, its HD capability and choice of inputs. IMHO, PQ is more or less the same between the 2 screens. For those who are deciding to get the 42pd5200 - get it! You won't regret it. What I like about NexNix is that it was the only retailer which promised me next day delivery!
