Its been great reading all the comments and pictures about the PV500 (thanks everyone), and I was all for getting a PV500, mainly because I am not too bothered about amazing sound and the speakers on PV500 are pretty good by all accounts (and for ps3 hidef). But then on a whim just checked the price for the PE50 and the prices for the wall mount option on totaldigital.biz are: PV500B - £1,949 PE50B - £1,549 Thats a difference of 500 quid, for which you can get a lot of stuff, be it speakers, really good dvd player or whatever takes your fancy. I still need to see the PV500 in the flesh (went to Tottenham Crt Road on Sat, but no one had it on display), but I am finding it hard to convince myself it is worth the extra £500 ... or that i can spend the £500 saving on improving other components. What are the reasons people chose the PV500 over the PE50? I guess its the "Hi-def" ready tag. Although how hidef the tv has been extensively debated in other threads.
