    I am currently talking to Themescene regarding the price of the RD65, and that 3800 Quid is a Joke and if they really wanna shift some units, they REALLY have to cut down on that price.

    What would be a reasonable price you'd pay for the RD65?

    I say 2750. You?

    I think it would be a good price to get it under 3K. I would still like to see it in the flesh before I buy it (maybe at the next AV show hopefully).

    Any chance if a few of us are interested you could perhaps negotiate a bulk 'Power Buy' ?

    3000/ After that the price point seems to change pshycologically for me and it seems much more expensive after that?

    I would perhaps go as high as £3200.

    And I WOULD buy it at £3000 before Christmas. 100% A potential customer with a budget and a timescale. It's what they need to hear. :lesson:

    Actually , if they can get it for that price I will buy it NOW! I have the money waiting.

    That is precisely why I am negociating with Themescene for!

    3800 quid is FAR too pricey for something that doesn't do NTSC, 2500 and I'll buy 1 right now! 2750 and they'd have to throw in something like an extra bulb for me!

    Seems fair - I would almost certainly buy one at that price.

    Whatever you bargain them down to you've still got to factor in either a PC or something like a Lumagen to be able to play NTSC material, so that's about another £800 to consider.

    For my part I think if you're really after as big a screen as that, why not go the whole hog and get a front projector? A Sanyo Z3 and an electric 100" screen would still cost you less than £1500, and I know what I'd rather have.

    Regards

    I don't care about NTSC. Although I have a ninja MCE pc :smashin: so that's not an issue. But I don't care. I have one video in N TSC (AppleSeed).

    And a projector has to be wheeled out etc :( . I want a large tv to play vid games, watch sport and movies etc.

    So it's an RD65 for 3K then! :lease:

    Its "old" technology (HD2+ and 720p) and given the latest developments over at CEDIA, I'd say we are looking at £2500 max until Christmas, thereafter I'd not bother buying one.

    I have also been looking at one of these to replace my 50" plasma.

    At £2500 I would buy one straight away but the £3800 is too much to deal with!! (paid almost that much for my plasma 2 years ago, £3800 is a new car for christs sake!!).

    Surely they will have to look at reducing that price, cant imagine they have sold that many!!

    A new Car? Even the Kia Picanto is more that that. And the Daca Logan (Renault) is going to be around 6k. ;)

    The conensus seems be 2800, being a good average of our numbers.

    So how about it.

    Who'll buy at 2800.

    The HD2+ is better than the Newer HD4, I know that, cost more to produce and is just cooler I've always thought...
