Hi all - got 3k to spend... and Richersounds have MPA400e for £2499... difficult to resist... The Hitachi is 1024x1024 - but HOW noisy is the fan ? IF i go for the Panasonic - is the TH42PW6B the model to go for... I need High Res (that's why I like the Hitachi)... and only want the panel, no media box or speakers I will be feeding the panel with Svideo to start with as I have all my sources switched through my AV amp. Has anyone compared video delay times on these panels... Also would the PW5B at reduced cost (maybe as low as £2200 ) be a good buy ( watch NTL digital and DVD's mostly ) Should I be looking at any other panels ? (can't afford Pioneer) many thanks for any replies ! W.
