    i am thinking of going for the new hitachi plasma but i am still not sure of the size of screen i am after . does anyone one know if the new hitachi comes in a smaller screen other than 42" and hd ready .
    i will be using it through a freeview box and my pioneer 313 home cinema dvd player , are there many happy hitachi owners on this forum as it seems to be panny or pioneer owners .
    any links to reviews on the hitachi would be great .

    thanks rik .

    to answer one part of your question, I would go for the bigger 42" if you can. My Living Room is by no means large (I sit about 8-10 feet away) and am glad I didn't go for the smaller.
    You soon get used to the size although at first it is a bit scary compared to your older set.
    PQ is obviously more apparant the bigger the set and the closer you sit, but if ur watching dvd's through a capable player it is awesome.

    I'd second that, the extra viewing area is well worth it and you won't regret it. I did have a 36" Panny crt (which looked massive when I first got it!) but the 42" plasma is a much better viewing experience, especially DVD's and the PS2 connected via component.

    Don't have a link to an on-line review but one of the current av mags I browsed in WH Smiths a couple of days back couldn't praise it highly enough.

    There is a leaning towards Panny/Pioneer panels for various reasons on these forums (no doubt valid) but if you have good source material and the correct 'settings' then I'm sure you won't be dissapointed.
