    end of life is very soon, and on sept 1st its due a price drop of around £400

    so bargain hunters be at the ready, it will probably take a little while to filter down the chain, but the 5 model is about to hit the streets

    The 5 model is higher resolution but if you dont have A high definition source it wont make a great deal of difference to us poor souls in the UK

    and it will probably be about £1400 more expensive, I would dare bet that you wont have much change out of 5 grand

    Hi,

    I don't know if anyone else has noticed, but I was looking at the panasonic european website and the 5 models are now listed. There looks to be a 37 and 42 inch standard definition and 42 and 50 inch high definition models. There are no technical specs, just pictures and brief descriptions. I guess that their launch is very soon.

    Just select the products button and the plasma models are listed.

    Cheers,

    njr

    Where did you get that info? - I had my Mr Panasonic in to see me on Wednesday and no mention of a price drop; in fact they don't even have info on the D5 models existing as yet.

    I suspect the 42" D5 High Def will arrive first and they will launch the 42" D5 Standard Def a little later once any surplus 42" D4 stock is sold out - just my guess mind.

    Regards

    Joe

    Hi Joe
    Empire Direct said in a couple of weeks The current 42" Panasonic will have a 4-£500 price reduction

    also in Audiovision they have 3 Panasonic plasma,s on display
    and without any prompting from me,

    the sales assistant said that on sept 1 the current batch of Panasonic Plasma,s are having a big price reduction if I was interested in buying

    this company

    http://www.av-sales.com/plasma/html/panasonic_th-42phd5uy.html

    is advertising the new panny 5 model, but as yet no pricing.
