    Like most people here, I've been hanging around (and getting fed up :boring: ) waiting for the right screen to come along. Having read the posts here, I've decided to go for the Hitachi 32LD7200. :thumbsup:

    It's got the right connections; speakers are detachable - allegedly (manufacturers take note - size matters to her indoors); picture is great; motorised stand (i.e gagdet) for the boys and the price is right. And it's the last point I'm looking for feedback on.

    What's the best price you've found so far? Mine is £1221.16 on RGBDirect, inc free delivery and they say they are in stock.

    Can anyone beat that?

    Cheers

    Total Digital £1219 inc. VAT & delivery. That's where I got mine from, and another chap on these forums too (sorry, forgot who it was). In both our cases, they phoned to arrange a delivery time and stuck to it. I ordered mine on a Saturday and got it on the Monday, the fella I spoke to on the phone was really helpful, and I'd definitely recommend them. The website ordering page failed to load when I went to purchase, so I rang them and made my order over the phone - other than that, no problems.

    [edit]: oh yeah, I forgot, Cheap Electricals did have them cheaper, about £1100 I think, but they don't seem to be selling Hitachi TVs any more. Might be worth emailing them? I did send them a few emails a while back and got prompt and full replies.

    Just found it for £1,190 + £10 P&P @ Hitachi Shop.

    From their website:
    Other posts in the forums recommend Nexnix.co.uk - do a search. A look on both websites shows they are the same people.

    £1,222.00 OK it may be a few pence dearer but it could be a better deal,

    robertsons-online

    pay nothing for 6 months then pay cash price .

    Hopefully someone will come up with a better price or deal .

    If you were to wait for a few of the new models from other co's to arrive

    that will bring the price down further .

    This may not be a lot of help, but I think this set is running out of stock everywhere - fast. I bought mine from TotalDigital (a very cool outfit, by the way!). Unfortunately for me it was faulty :( TD agreed to swap it out last Tues (26th of April). They were out of stock then but were still hopeful of replacing the faulty set within a week. However, here we are one week later the on 4th of May & they now believe it will be at least another 7 to 10 days before they receive further stock... Here's hoping this set is not about to become the new Tosh32WL48... :lease:

    Bought one yesterday from www.121electricals.co.uk after phoning pretty much everyone else. They had 2 left one of which I hope is winging its way to me. Everywhere else quoted up to 2 weeks plus they had people already waiting on the next lot.

    I had a look at the Hitachi yesterday and it was very impressive, good screen and very vibrant colours, but it wasn't the one I decided on, but took a well deserved second place.

    Strangely enough the smaller screen of the Xelos a26, it was the most CRT like image I have seen so far on an LCD or plasma. I was very impressed and better than the Xelos a32.

    You were obviously more lucky than me - I called them, and was told they had stock, and that it was quickest to order via the web, which I did immediately after the phone call. Was notified today that they don't have stock and won't have for 7-10 days, which seems the case everywhere.

    Anybody know of anyone with stock?

    Cheers,

    Steve.

    It does seem that all the latest models go the way of Toshi 32WL48. I havnt seen a review for the Hitachi yet in a mag but already you cant get one. As the new models come out this summer they will go the same - LCD are going to be like gold dust before Christmas this year.

    Mine arrived today - that was quick, and on time. Looks great and so far very pleased with it. Price was OK too (includes delivery).

    I would suggest that you need to keep phoning round. I was lucky to call at the right time - it seems that shops are getting a couple at a time.

    24 hours almost exactly after I placed the order the TNT delivery guy showed up :D

    I haven't had much of a chance yet to play with it. The autotuning was nice and straightforward. Looks nice in general.

    Tonight I'll wade through my DVD collection to give it a real workout.

    Anyone else noticed the slight humming noise from the Hitachi? Became aware of it when I opened the DVD tray (so no sound playing).

    Yup - got fed up waiting and went with JL Edinburgh. Took three days from stat to finish.

    Taking into account 5 year guarantee and free delivery, i think they beat Unbeatable (lol) by about £50 - and they had them in stock :)

    I'm picking mine up tomorrow from my local Sevenoaks Hifi for £1399. I know it's quite a bit more, but they've said they will let me test it in the shop for buzzing backlight, dead pixels etc so it certainly saves a lot of potential hassle.
