Well I have given up looking, reading this is good this is bad, buy this buy that. It has driven me and my wife mad. Was set on the philips 998 because everyone give it a glowing report. Then showrooms say no u need a plasma, get a panasonic, this is good this is crap. Then I see what I feel was a stunning hitachi 42pd5200. Looked in the forum, this is good this is crap thats better pictures good, pictures crap. Go back to the showroom spent 2hrs, just couldnt make my mind up so what did i do? Well my opinion is 99% of the people on the forum rate the philips 998 so I bought it as simple as that. SO YOU ALL BETTER BE RIGHT Now I managed to get a good price of £1900 but do have to wait a week Oh well at leasti can just read the manual.
