Looking for some advice, I'm new to this game and finally persuaded my wife to upgrade from our ageing sony 28" CRT. From reviewing the web and various magazines the Panasonics seems to get the best reviews and aesthetically look the best. I've had a look at both the PV500 and PE50 and don't really notice that much difference in picture quality between the two for non HD inputs. The PV500 looks the better unit of the two however I'm not sure I could justify the additional outlay as I'm unlikely to use the HD for Sky in the future; we just use Freeview at present as don't watch TV that much, mainly DVDs. Also, I've read some posts regarding problems with the PV500 which makes me a bit wary too. So, a few questions I'd like your expert view on: 1. Are there any reported issues with the PE50? 2. Of the two Panasonics, what's the best value for money for me? 3. I'm in central scotland (access to Glasgow and Edinburgh), how would I go about getting the cheapest price with the cabinet stand (I'd prefer to match with JLP if possible and get the benefit of their 5 year guarantee) Thanks in advance for your help.
