This is probably a very stupid question but why would you buy a 42PHD7 rather than wait for 42PV500? Cost from AV Sales: PHD7 - £2420 (if you include wall mount) PV500 - £2373 includes wall mount and you get a DMRES10 thrown in (Why is it more expensive?) Connections PHD7 - extra cost for whatever you want PV500 - looks to have everything you could want HD compliant PHD7 - would need a scaler PV500 - says it is From a newbies point of view the PV500 seems to be technically better however my understanding is somewhat limited but all of the above say PV500. My assumption here is that the PQ on the PV500 will be no worse than the PHD7 (I know, a very big assumption and the mantra of Demo, Demo, Demo will apply when I can). I know I'm comparing a TV to a panel and the speakers may be redundant if you already have a sound system but after reading about plasmas what now seems a life time (January) I just want to go and buy one. However with the launch of the PV500 due in May, to steal the title of Danluton's thread "must...resist...just...a...little.....longer...... .arrrrghhh" Am I wrong?
