    First off, hello to you all!

    I'm currently poised to buy a plasma TV, and until today have pretty much made a firm decision on the Hitachi 42PD5200 - I've seen some amazing reviews for this set, and in the flesh it looks fantastic. Anyone using one of these? How do you rate it?

    Now, today I wandered into my local Computer World shop, and they are offering a deal on a TINY Focus 4200 42" plasma, with free DVD Recorder for £1395. Normally I wouldn't pay an ounce of notice at anything TINY make, but the TV itself looks pretty good, specs are down on the Hitachi but then so is the price (compared to just under £2k for the Hitachi).

    What I'd like to know, is the TINY too good to be true? Is it a pile of rubbish? Should I follow my instinct and go for the Hitachi and brave the wife's moaning? :)

    All advice is gratefully received!

    Dan

    from what i've heard I would avoid TINY like the plague!!

    telly will be nowhere near as good anyway, but if something goes wrong with it, which is highly likely, you're fooked!!
