    This is on special at Ritcher Sounds for £999.95 under a grand
    conditions say must pay 99 for panel protection and i suppose about 130 for input board and similar for walkl bracket.

    Sounds like pretty good value though. Any thoughts or is this nor old technology as far as Plasmas. Want to get best out of SKY HD when launched.

    Cheers :eek:

    Its not HD compatible. You will have to go for a PV500 or a PHD8 when it is available.

    I suppose so, if you want to buy a scaler and frame rate convert. Why not just buy a HD ready screen though?

    The PWD7 is only a standard definition screen in any case so if the OP wants to get the best out of sky HD, then it would not seem to be the best choice.

    Well its two opposite ends of the scale.

    A plasma for £999 or a setup costing £3000+ to get the best out of Sky HD.

    £999 will get you up and running give or take a couple of hundred, or you could spend £7000 on a Fuji panel, scaler etc.

    Its all down to how much you want to spend.
