    Hi,
    Im new to the forum; im thinking of getting a hitachi PD5300, has anyone got anything to say about this and do you know where i can pricematch with JL?? They are currently going for £3300... Im in the Swindon area and i was told by someone at JL that the shop ill need to pricematch must be local, if so, do u know any retailer around the Reading-Swindon-Bristol axis that stock this cheaper than JL????
    Cheers

    Very pleased with my 5300, excellent picture even on analoge signal.

    I live in Bristol and got JL to pricematch on a company in Bradford called Electro Saver 0800 6987 654, they don't seem to be on the net but advertise on a full page spread in What Video & Wide screen TV.

    It was not all plain sailing as this company and PRC quoted different prices on my orginal call, but when JL called were slightly dearer. But I am pleased with this deal including the 5 year warranty and Hitachi free portable DVD player. JL price £3295 down to £2699, the cheapest I have been able to find was PRC direct at £2589, but this was only via the net (£50 + del dearer in store) with 1 year warranty.

    Just got my 5300 today! Extremely pleased with it. Got it pricematched by JL with Electrasaver thanks to Jpd2's tip some time back. Paid £2638. (Electrasaver quoted £2599 plus £39 delivery). My only complaint is that the AV box seems to be not quite as up to date as the screen itself (was the box with the 3000). Also, I have no form to fill in for my freebie portable DVD. Where do I get that from?

    Jpd2 has written the number just above (2 posts above my last one). Rang JL today & they are mailing me a stamped form. Saves me trekking over there again.
