    After many, many, many weeks of thinking about a new plasma, I am unsure whether to purchase a Hitachi 42PD7200 OR the new Pioneer 436XDE!!

    Any thoughts on this would be very much appreciated.

    Many thanks, :lease:

    Sorry but is this a trick question? Though obviously a couple of weeks or more away yet, so untested, based upon previous models, the Pioneer will be several leagues better than the Hitachi. Hitachi, yuk, the mere thought....

    I'm thinking the same.

    It's a all a question of time (436XDE not available for several weeks), Price (42DP7200 available at Currys for £1750 (with codes) some £750 cheaper than 436XDE) & Quality (I have no doubt that the Pioneer is going to be great - but how "Bad" is the Hitachi????)

    Remember both have 2 HD ready inputs. I can't decide, which I guess means we'll have to wait to see them operating back to back. Let's hope the 7200 price doesn't go up!

    In your opinion.
    Some people do actually like the Hitachi, you know.

    And "several leagues" in what way??

    Sorry, excuse me etc, I've tried the reasoned approach but I would just say:

    STOP TALKING UNSUBSTANTIATED, ILL INFORMED, GENERALISTIC BO***CKS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :lease:

    Please define "several leagues" to at least begin to redeem yourself.

    By far, and "Leagues" apart, the Hitachi gives most value for money.

    The Pioneer may boast better blacks but colours on the Hitachi PD7200 are better, much better :thumbsup:

    If you put the side by side you will wonder where the Stg750 of difference in price really is!! :rolleyes:

    Go and see for yourself :hiya:

    Yeah you've got to laugh this hitachi bashing is a bit boring now . :suicide:

    My brother in law has a pio 435 in his bedroom and knows a little bit about hifi having just priced up a new av set up for his living room at a total more than most houses are built for :eek: . was quite shocked when he saw my hitachi plasma on the wall .

    Something about better colours and overall leagues better picture . :D

    I'm going for the panny 42PE50 but was originally looking at the 42PV500...the hitachi pic looked just as nice

    the only thing that put me off about the hitachi was that the one in the comet store is that it had screen burn and the panny did not

    however thats a sample of 1 - but it just put me off...as it was i've decided on a non-high def product

    I had the pleasure of seeing the 436 today, and i have to say it is the best i have seen.

    Leagues better, possibly, but definately better than any all in one plasma to date.

    Where did you see this and are you sure it was 436 xde and not 435? Please describe the picture quality and what feed it had, hi-def or sd?
