    I am hopefully going to get a Panansonic PE50 with cabinet floor stand.
    My only concern about the stand is as it is glass, can you see all the wires and stuff from the back of the plasma?
    I know somewhere on here I have seen a photo someone posted (UrbanT I think) and it looked very neat.
    Was wondering if anyone can help me out here about this?

    The stand is see through, so if you dangle wires, you will see them.

    However, the stand does have 'cable management', so you can keep the wires behind the thick legs either side of the shelves. You will never hide the wires completely, but it does do an effective job. All the bits you need are in the box :)

    Thanks for such a quick reply, only other thing I wanted to ask was do you have surround sound or is the sound from the TV ok ?
    Thanks again.

    Check my signature re surround sound ;)

    I use the PE50 just as a TV, and the sound is fine. But if you are going to watch films, nothing beats surround sound, it will add immensely to your enjoyment.

    Thanks again, not sure what you mean about checking your signature, I have looked at your website about your home cinema, it looks fantastic. We will only be using the plasma as a tv so will think about surround sound later.

    Thats what I meant, all my surround duties are taken care of with the projector. The plasma is used as a normal TV, so no surround sound. :)

    I'm confused! The stand is made of glass? I've seen one in the shops and it seemed to be metal - it certainly wasn't see-through. I'm not complaining though - I would prefer it to be glass. I'll go examine UrbanT's picture some more I think…!

    What i did with mine was to cut some black card to fit at the back of the shelves (round the equipment), hides out everything and looks pretty cool too.

    Got the idea off here but sorry cant remeber from who.

    Sorry for the confusion. The base and side legs are made of fibreboard and metal.

    The centre section, with the shelves, is open. So if you left all your wires dangling down the middle of the stand, they would be visible. The idea is that you feed them to the side, and then run them down the legs, to hide them as much as possible.

    Chris, do you have any pictures of your cabinet with the cutout, I'd really like to see it. :)

    Sorry bout the quality just rememered and grabbed a phone shot, u can just make out that the back of the shelves is black i just used some art board and stuck it in with blue tak as a make shift thing till i get the plasma wall mounted.

    The card is cut out to fit over the sky+ on the top shelf, xbox on the middle and dvdr and wireless router on the bottom.

    Ill post some better over the weekend.
