    Panasonic say they are proud to announce their latest range of LCD's. Well all I can say as a fan of most things Panasonic is I feel somewhat let down. Look at the connectivity and make up your own mind, however, I am not impressed. They do say in their defence when questioned that the TX-32LXD50 at £1996 is a budget model. As it was the 1st of April when they said this to me I asked them if they were having an April fool at my expense, but they seemed put out at this suggestion and said they were not. I responded by saying in that case they must then be having a laugh at everyones expense.

    The word miserly comes to mind when loking at that lot. 1 component, 1 scart, 1 s-video... Surely not? I mean that's just pathetic. No DVI or even VGA either. :suicide:

    At £2k for the budget model it is either very special or vastly over priced...at that level it is competing with the Philips.

    Personally I can't wait to see the 500 in the flesh...although I am disappointed that having seen the new Panny plasma range that they have gone away from the gloss black surround to a plain matt black one.
