    You will probably have lip synch issues in some way shape or form. Personally I don't notice them, except in extreme circumstances i.e. some DVD's and maybe some sky channels - but rarely do I see them. But then again I can get rid of them via the 3803 anyway.

    Lovely screen, picture wise on SD as good as any out there, in my humble opinion, others will disagree. And it doesn't take up too much room. At that price and cover very good.

    a cheap amp with audio delay will solve any possible problems very easily. It's a lovely screen, I'm delighted with mine.

    That's a keen price with 5 year warranty. I'd check the small print, and find out who it's through. Likely at this price it's a grey import, but hell, with the warranty who cares!

    It's not a hard price to achieve with a euro import actually, but if it's UK stock, it's pretty good. It's the warranty that's the tough one, a TADL warranty is around £250. Getting the screen for £750 is simply too good to be true.

    visited shop today , sorry but this is a series 6 panasonic pw6, salesman the other day gave wrong model , it comes with one scart , 5 year guarantee .
    is the 6 series as good as the 7 and will i still get the lipsync issues with the 6 series, also how would this compare to the new samsung standard panel which has 2 scarts component in and hdmi socket also comes with freeview all for about £1300 online.
    which would you recommend
    thanks

    i never saw a good one but confess that i may also be biased by my experience with Tiny who use samsung technology (but it's not the latest samsung to be fair)

    well if you had £1300 in your pocket to buy one of these which would you go for , need to know for tomorrow wednesday as they are down to 2 panasonics in stock.

    is £999 a good price for a pw6 with scart and 5 year guarantee?
