    The TH42PWD8 is good. The E at the end of it is a slight worry - grey import??

    Don't know Piers - I just thought the price was very good - may be worth further investigation? Is grey bad as long as warranties are valid?

    I'm biased as I have a PWD8 and I think it's marvellous. That price seems ok but consider what is included and what else you might want to add i.e.

    -Stand or Wall mount between £89 and £130 approx.
    -Extended warranty that could set you back £200 for an additional 2 years. (It should come with 2 years warranty as standard)
    -Cost of delivery included?

    End of the day it's up to you and what you are after, I can tell you that AV-Sales were doing a good deal on these when I bought mine and their service was really very very good.

    Best of luck with your search.

    Here is where we might see a real difference between a euro warranty and a UK one. New PWD8 uk stock comes with a 2 yr warranty, I don't know about euro stuff. I don't think they are obliged to give more than a year. You may find no composite board bundled too.

    Yeah... but ask them what's bundled with it, and if there's 2 yrs of warranty included... I'm quite sure they have to give you at least 2 yrs...
