    I am a plasma virgin so any good advice would be helpful , I dont have bags full to spend but i could stretch to the hitachi Hitachi 42PD4200 , but am i going to notice a vast difference apart from the 5" of course.

    Also Is this one any good as the independant electrical place has one and he is only about 3 doors down ,so instant delivery :)

    I currently have a Sony AV-300 system to run with it

    The TH37PW7 is highly rated and you won't be disappointed by it. Get a demo to be sure. It might also be worth checking prices with some of the advertisers on the forum you might find that you are suddenly able to afford a TH42PWD7.

    Can't help with the Samsung but from the spec sheet on their web site it is a different sort of beast to the Panasonic as it is a TV rather than a panel. What source equipment do you already have or are thinking of getting?

    OK so you have sound and DVD from SOny unit, you will need a tuner to watch TV, Sky, cable or FV box will be a digital tuner a VCR or DVDR an analogue tuner, so with sony kit and Tuner all you need is a disply and a 37 or 42 PWD7 will be ideal 42" PWD7 with mount (table or floor) is £1370 delivered from AV-sales (for £50 get a dual slot input board fromt them too) get a demo but if you like the panny thats a hell of a deal for £1400

    Given that you have got Sky is there any point on spending money on a TV tuner? I would route all the cash towards getting the best display panel (and decent cables, and a converter).

    Please dont buy that screen, PQ is awful. I have had 2 of them now and both were shocking (and faulty). There s a lot better for the money!

    There isn't a major difference between the 6 and 7 series though you can't input component via the D-sub port on the 7 which is a downer for some but shouldn't be a problem with your configuration. The 7 is a bit brighter than the 6 but the difference isn't huge.
