First stumbled across this forum a month or so ago (thought buying a plasma was like buying a TV - found out I was totally wrong). Based on general consensus and particularly hornydragon's comprehensive input I'm leaning towards the Panasonic and have spent much of the day scouring the net looking for offers. Again, based on hd's recommendations I though the avsales offer was pretty reasonable (about £1750 for the TH-42PW7B BUT includes free board and wall mount). Then, just to complicate matters, I spot Richer Sounds special offer for Panasonic TH42PWD6BX @ £1299 (no extras and I'd have to collect it). Now I know hornydragon, amongst others, has a pretty low opinion of Richer Sounds, but is this offer just too good to refuse? Or should I bite the bullet and go for the dearer (safer) option with AVSales, which is the more recent model and includes some extras? Price difference at £450 would allow me to buy a wall mount and component board and still have plenty of change. Appreciate thoughts on this to help a rookie. Cheers.
