    Almost at the point of ordering this one.

    Couple of questions to owners of i may.

    1. PIP functions, can this be done with ANY 2 inputs? or does it HAVE to be INPUT+TXT, OR INPUT+PC

    2. I know the speakers are detachable, but I really dont need them. Are they any good, and do you reckon Id get a decent sale price? Does anyone sell this TV without Speakers for a lower price?

    Thanks in advance.

    If you don't need speakers or the tuner, go for the Hitachi PMA 400E which is cheaper, is Hi Def compatable and has picture and picture functions as well. Much the better buy imo.

    or the new model is just appearing at the moment the pma500e.

    It's brighter from the specs and has more connectivity.

    Nexnix have it at the moment.

    As far as I've been able to test, the PIP on the 42PD3000 only works whilst using the PC input - it then allows you to choose another source which is displayed in a very small window towards the bottom right of the screen.

    To clarify: The 400e will display 2 inputs side by side.

    Many thanks, the 500e looks a likely candidate. The one at nexnix seems very good value, and seem to have the video boad included in the price. Does ti also include a standard desktop stand? I see they sell an optional swivel stand.
