Just been to my local Panasonic store and saw the new Panasonic PV500. It is very impressive. I saw it playing The Incredibles through a HDMI connection, the picture was superb. They had four delivered on Thursday and have two on display and already sold the other two I asked when they would get some more in and they said Panasonic HQ would not give them a delivery date, but the assistant expected it to be two weeks. Seeing the Panasonic PV500 today has made my mind up, I just have to find the cash.
