    Just a quick note to ask what the difference is between the Hitachi 42pd5200 and 42pd5300 other than price???
    Is one better than the other??

    The 42PD5300 comes with a media box (the same one that came with the old 42PD3000) ~ this includes three SCART inputs (two RGB), plus component and vga inputs.

    The 42PD5200 does not have a media box. Instead it has an internal card that gives you one RGB SCART, 2 component inputs, svideo, composite, DVI and VGA inputs.

    The 42PD5300 is tider to connect up, but loses the DVI input of the 5200 (as it's used to connect the media box), plus it's more expensive of course.

    The plasma panel is the same in both cases.

    Hey Kraken, get used to being up in the early hours :D

    Still got your "bargain" Hitachi then? I had 3 42PD5300's but they all buzzed like mad and I've now got a Veira, which is nice. :thumbsup:

    I hear the singing career is going well :offtopic:


    Sorry to hijack the thread!

    Hiya Noely,

    I understand you'll be hearing the patter on new tiny feet in the next week or so, or rather the bawling of tiny new lungs :D I get to wait until November.

    Yep the cheap Hitachi is still here, and running okay. Do get a fair degree of buzzing with mine, but it tends to be on solid blocks of colour, and it certainly isn't annoying me enough to the extend it obviously did you.

    :offtopic: You can see my latest singing exploits at www.virginatlanticstars.com, as can anyone who clicks the link. Of course, they won't know which one I am ;)
