    I'm thinking of swapping my Hyundai HPTN4200S for this plasma. It has had some good reviews.

    Does anyone know where the cheapest place to get one is ? Another thread quotes :-

    " Hitachi Sky PDP4202 42" Plasma Tv HDTV future proof new
    Brand new personal delivery/set up 12 month warranty price: £1,199.00 "

    Where is this advertised?

    3rd time lucky, --- I want to get it right this time. Got £1,200 to play with. If I mess up, the missus will :suicide:

    I don't know where that advert is from but Sky seem to have stopped selling AV gear.There are no adverts for plasma's in the latest Sky magazine and Skybuy.com says it is unavailable now.

    I think it's a rebadged PD5200 so it's a good set but I've no idea where you'd get one from.

    Be very careful.
    The E-bay one, if it's a 5200 it's not HD ready.
    Note the "HD friendly" line.

    All TV's are HD friendly, in that you can see a picture.
    Only the 5200H is HD ready.

    Either way it's a good plasma, but if it is a 5200, consensus says the Panasonic pwd7 is better at a similar price.
