    So who's "in the club" so to speak?

    I got mine just over a week ago, from Currys with free delivery - they price matched Dixons which I thought was fairly good value.

    Love the look of the unit - very stylish with the curved away housing and the protruding screen. Not watched much on it as I can't decide how and where to mount it and set up the feeds!

    Have got a fixed wall mount from avrabbit and seem fairly impressed by it - plenty fittings included and it would seem adequate for the weight (60kgs?) it has to support.

    Just my feed location to sort - if I can get reliable cabling of 12 metres then I am well sorted - if not then the install will be in a compromised location!

    One quick question - not specific to the unit - does anyone have an after market good quality warranty company they can recommend?

    So come on everyone - let's here your views, tales and see your set ups!

    I'll keep you posted on developments!

    Just waltzed in and asked if they had it

    "Sorry but not on display - stocked at central warehouse":thumbsdow

    Ok then, what are we talking?

    "£2499 +delivery":eek:

    After some polite displeasure I said it's not that on yer web!

    "One moment and I'll look it up, we price match our web in store sir!":clap:

    Stop calling me sir you clown - and why are you looking up Currys website?

    "What do you mean sir, sorry not sir?":confused:

    The LG in question is on your online store website mate - Dixons!

    "But . . .":lease:

    Get the manager please son!

    "Ok so we are in the same group";)

    Can you do it for £2075(the price on the day) or will I go home and order it?

    "(Collapsing with fear)I will just check - hold on":rolleyes:

    You've got 1 minute mate and I'm leaving.

    45 seconds later:D

    "Ok sir, sorry not sir, we'll do it for that - but you'll have to pay for delivery"

    Goodbye!:devil:

    "Ok free delivery then":lease:

    Thankyou for your time son - you probably still made £400 profit, and the unit was never even near your shop:smashin:

    So far all's well - it looks fantastic on or off!

    If you are quite close and the source is poor then it looks bad - everything is magnified so much!

    No great sources for me - dvd is the best through cheap scart so far - but Cars for example looks tremendous!

    No regrets so far - no noises either as has been posted elsewhere regards plasmas - it is silent!

    Going to look into best way to connect Xbox 360 - anyone know - I've never bothered checking it out! Even it looks amazing through the original lead supplied though!!!

    Go for it - I never saw a set that compared in the looks department anyway!

    :) You'll not be dissapointed mate, where did you get it from and what was the end cost?

    Anyhow, I'm off to search for "dead pixels" and I'll report back:eek:

    :rolleyes: Right I need some help as ever!

    Watching box earlier and titles of film began to roll - black screen white letters. About 25% across the lower left to upper right diagonal from the bottom is a pixel - flashing white - no set pattern but flashing none the less!

    a) can I clear this with a whitewash or such like?

    b) what's the position regards this - £2000+ - I ain't too happy!

    c) why me? 1 week old!!!

    This doesn't bode well for the future!

    Comments:lease:

    How did you manage £1800, who was it with? Well done:clap:

    I hear what you're saying, but the other pixels don't flash so why should that one? Flashing white in a blackish scene it looks like a lighthouse!:eek:

    It would seem there isn't too many owners of this box - what's happening?

    Re the flashing pixel, Currys kindly swapped the tv last week and so far so good.

    On a more general topic, how are plasmas lasting the test of time - are they generally reliable or are they short in life span?

    Not got it on the wall yet - not sure if I'm staying or moving so I will hold off for the meantime.

    Any one of you guys/girls had issues with thier 50py2r?

    I have had mine since 2006, and the picture just went on me the other day.

    Still powers up, can get sound, but no pic. Made a big bang !

    I have had a word with LG and they state it sounds like a PSU/PSB problem.

    Power Supply Unit / Power Supply Board.

    Quoted me £150 just to come and pick it up and take it back for investigation.
