    Most people on here have either Panasonics, Pioneers or Hitachis, so don't expect to much feed back.
    I think the general concensus is the older Sonys weren't much cop, they looked to washed out.
    But I think the new range of Sonys are superb, Alis panel or not the picture looks fantastic. For me it was a toss up between the Sony or the Panasonic.
    The Panasonic won purely on cost and that they were very popular on this forum.
    Sorry I haven't much useful info to give you, but at least you've had a reply. :thumbsup:

    Think we're all hanging back to avoid a 'slag off the new guy's kit' festival. I'm not a big sony fan, but with all new kit I'm open to persuasion, get it set up and tell us what you think. Try to see past the 'wow what a big one I've got' factor, if it's really any good more people would buy them, just Sony haven't really tried that hard with plasma, they have chosen another path, never made their own glass ec.

    I've been reading this forum for the past few months and got a fair share of the advice and info given. It's true that some brands are favored more than the others , but I guess it all comes down to what people are using the most. I'm sure the PW6 Panasonic model sold much better than the Sony equivalent (if such exists) due to this forum alone.

    What you need to remember is that no matter what people say , at the end of the day you'll be sitting in front of it for the next couple of years , so make sure you've seen it before and compared it to the others.

    All the specs in the world will not make a difference if u or you're family don't like what you see. :lesson:

    As a newbie myself I've searched around , demo'd many screens and finally knew what I wanted and got it. It's quite simple once you've made you're mind up and by the looks of it you have! Enjoy you're Sony plasma!! :thumbsup:

    I saw this Sony screen in John Lewis last week and have to say it was very impressive. Probably not the best place to compare screens, but I thought it was better than the Panasonic Viera alongside it. The salesman said they basically just unbox and switch them on, so neither would look their best.

    Just did a quick search on Kelkoo and it can be had for 2,169 which is pretty good considering it has speakers, 3 SCARTS and a stand. Not sure if the tuner is a Freeview though. That's pretty close to the price of a Panasonic PWD6 with all the bits.

    It's analogue, which is not a problem - managed to find a few more sites with better descriptions. I've got 2 Freeview adapters anyway, so that's what I plan to use: 1 with Tivo, 2nd as a live alternative when I need it.
