OK i read it carefully now, but this sentence made me suspicious:You may question my intentions, but as already said I had sold the screen and decided against it. And I have a buyer lined up at a fair price.
I don't know who you are Onno but think about what you say mate, look back through my posts and you will see that I really wouldn't bother doing that.
From the reports I am hearing from people I trust I am hearing that the PHD8 is better, and hornet can get a new one for £1100, I would say go for it.
Giz is a pretty straight up guy that say's things as he finds and has helped me a little in the past when picking a screen, he'll tell you it's good and bad points (he should know he's had enough lol) he would'nt say things to sway people into getting a phd8 just so he could sell his imho.At that moment i thought you were trying to sell yours, my suspision got worse when you wanted to know how much he should pay for it and asked him to pm you.
Sorry for that one, i sincerley apologise
As a 50PHD8 owner I wouldn't even consider changing mine for a samsung, LG etc. when you compare the Pio/Pana/Fujitsu panels to the other 'cheaper' brands there is no contest, in this world you really do get what you pay for!!!!My Panasonic PHD8 50 is superb, amazing picture quality (had it for 7 months), if I was buying right now though I would probably go for the 50 inch Samsung because it is such incredible value at £1500 (my friend has one) and I think it looks just as good as my Panasonic. I would really like a 65 inch but they are so expensive at the moment, I am hoping in the next year or so that 60+ inch prices drop and I can get one that is 1080p.
