Dear all New to all this and it does seem quite daunting, how you can get stitched up going in to a retailer and reading this site! If anyone can help, I am either looking at getting the Hitachi 42PD7200 or the 42PD5200(H). This last model seems to be described as (H) new on Pricerunner.co.uk. The problem is the cheaper 5200 seems to have more features like progressive scan, being a novice I thought this seems better? Its also HD ready (according to the logos with web pictures) but I am not sure what this means exactly as I cant see details of it having a HDMI socket. Im also not sure if the best thing is to go for an external control box or have it all integrated? If anyone can offer advice Id appreciate it. Basically looking to spend about £2k, want the TV to be HD compatible/ready without the need to add parts. Thanks very much Rick4!
