    hi all :clap:

    well.. i jus bought a Panasonic TH42PV500 from Comet.. bought it from there cuz they did me a good deal with a fridge freezer ma mum wanted!.. but theres a slight prob.. everything will be delivered by saturday.. but they havent got any of the Pedestal Stands in stock and will get me one by august 8th earliest!...i cant wait that long! now im sure i need that to have the tv standing up.. and wall mounting is out the question..

    just wanted to know if anyone knows any alternatives to the stand.. or any places where i can get he stand from.. as soon as saturday possibly..

    ive seen the floor stand cabinet thingy.. but thats like 400 quid.. too much for me at the moment

    thanx !

    Thats ridiculous, how they can get away with selling you a TH42PV500 with pedestal and not deliver the pedestal for another 3 weeks at least is out of order. Demand they give you a cabinet on loan in the meantime.

    Comet are out of order on this, they should be delivering the whole lot or be waiting till they have stock. I ordered from a Panasonic Dealer a week past monday and he said that Panasonic had short supply of pedestals as they did not anticipate demand for them to be so high. They said A year ago folks were all ordering the full size stand and demand for other mounts was minimal compared with that. However they will be delivering as a package as thats how Panasonic ship them to dealers normally. If I'd wanted a cabinet version I'd have had it by now. He also said wall brackets were even worse for supply.
    Delivery of my Es-10 DVD recorder came yesterday so at least I've got that to suss out before the screen comes.

    Will they knock anything off for not having the stand?

    I only ask as a mate ordered the viera on monday, after asking how deep the stand was and being told it was 6", he now can't use it as it is 13" deep and hangs 3" over the front of the shelf!

    They are also being arses about taking the stand back, so he has asked me to get rid of it for him.

    i thought it open this thread up again instead of starting a new one...

    comet took back the pv500 stand they loaned me... and im using the pedestal stand.. and ive got to say i HATE it!...

    does anyone have a Panasonic 42" pv500 cabinet stand for sale?.. or know anywhere that i can get it cheap from.. because im not prepared to pay 400 quid for it!

    thanx :thumbsup:

    Maybe Comet will make you a deal on the "used" cabinet stand they have loaned you. Then they don't have to pick it up. :thumbsup:

    hi mate


    i know a home cinema shop that can get the pv500 stand not sure if you have to collect or they post .
    i was going to give them a ring about a stand but im getting a wall mount now


    this is there website www.dvdlibrary.co.uk , you would have to ring them about the stand , not sure what the price would be either.
