Total Digital have it priced at £1459 - that's an SD plasma, but with HDMI and its apparently boasting a High Resolution picture processor. http://www.totaldigital.biz/product_info.php/products_id/1325 Now I was considering the Panasonic 42PE50 - but I am wondering if the Sony V42 might be a better option, bearing in mind that its a newer plasma and it has HDMI (which makes it future proof in some way, even if not true HD ready status). It also looks very stylish, has the same look as the new V range Sony Lcds.. (which my missus really likes! but i bet she wouldn't be able to tell the difference between the lcd and the plasma ) Has anyone seen the V42 in action yet ? I've also noticed Comet have taken off the Sony 42XS1 off their website , might wel be replacing it with the V42 in the coming days - which would be ideal for me, because i could go for their extended warranty (screen burn coverered)..
