I have had my Pio 434 for a week now, and I thought I'd share my experiences: Bought it from Dixons for £3830 (they price matched against their own airport shop prices), inc. stand and speakers PQ - seems to improve after an hour or two of running, can show poor skin tones, judder in movement and lipsync problems with the low bit rate Sky channels. However, once warmed up, PQ is stunning with DVD (S-Video on input 3), very good on most Sky movies, pretty poor on tuner. Noise - can't hear any from the screen, the media box fan is noticable though. Drop out - just twice in a week. Contacted Dixons about the warm up problem and drop outs and they offered to take the screen and box away for repair! (or I could have a refund). Contacted Pioneer, they didn't seem interested advised me to talk to Dixons. Hmmm! Overall, not bad, this is my first plasma and I have another 7 days to decide whether to keep it or try something else.
