    ahaaaa. indeed it could...

    reason i asked was i tried to get 2x 400s today for work, and i was told they were EOL and would be best to wait for the 500, but they wouldnt tell me any more...

    questions answered ...

    Cheers,
    Kev

    Try the following link www.shootandshow.com/hitachi-42pma500e.htm (part of NexNix Ltd). They have it on sale for £2,814 inc VAT and also have one in their demo room.

    Plenty of connections by the looks of the spec (although the data sheet says their via an optional board)

    Anybody seen this in action?

    Seems to be the best of both worlds for connectivity. It's at a very good price already too...

    From Nexnix:

    hmm, looks like it covers everything.

    I see you have the PMA 400e which I saw on display the other day up along side an LG and panny PW5. The Hitachi did look as good as the panny and better than the LG, how do you find it?

    Any idea what the difference is between the 400e and the new 500 series? Looking at the price of the new 500 and the connectivity I might go for the Hitachi rather than the Panny PW6 I was going to get

    Im very interested in this panel because of the DVI input but want to know if it has similar issues as the Panny 6 seems to with DVI.

    Anyone heard anything?
