    Hi
    going to look at plasmas tomorrow, but could you please tell me how much better a pioneer plasma is for the extra you will pay compared to a panny vierra, just asking as sevenoaks recommended the pioneer over panny, I rang them today prior to going in so havnt seen the sets running.

    You will love it, I have the 42" version and I think it is the business. The hubbie is watching the Liverpool match on it and thinks it is an excellent picture.

    Must be a Saints fan :rolleyes:

    Gooner, did you get your 37" from Sevenoaks? Says on Pricerunner / Kelkoo they've got a specal offer £1650-ish but only at some stores (NOT my local one)

    Would the 37" fit into a normal family saloon? (... roll on wisecracks about in-car plasma TV :) )

    I was going to get a Pioneer but have changed my mind due to the footy issue.

    I got from a dealer called Manders near to where I lived, I did phone sevenoaks but was told a price nearer to £2100 from them for 37", comet and currys had it for £1999, but do not like these places as after sales is well to say the least crap, decided on Manders as lots of locals use him and fully reccomend him, cost was bit higher than currys ect but them he is going to deliver and set up whole set and I get the free panny dvd recorder, which I wont use so will maybe sell it for a small sum :laugh: , which will then in effect bring price down.

    My room is about 14 foot x 16 foot with seating arranged about 10 foot from TV, this is why I opted for 37 rather 42 as I think 42 maybe overpowering in room.

    They had a 50 sat next to 37 and I must say when looking at em both close up the PQ was as good on the 50, but that is a beast of a screen.

    I also like the idea of being able to walk into a shop should the need be to see him, (fingers crossed this wont be happening) rather than phoning someone and trying to get sorted. Personel pref really

    Looking forward to monday :)

    The box on the 37" Viera is not small. I picked mine up in my Zafira, which with the seats down in the back fitted perfectly. Doubt a saloon will do the job or a normal hatchback.

    Had mine a little over a monthe now and am well impressed with the picture quality and ease of use, even the sounds good for normal tv viewing
