    could anybody use Pio 433MXE with default stand?

    How stable is it?

    I am planning to put it on 8MM glass.

    The feet that come with it are basic, but perfectly sturdy. There's no reason why they couldn't be used long term.

    According to the manual it should be screwed to the surface.

    If I put it on the glass surface obviously I cannot do this.

    The standard feet are perfectly adequate and believe me if you put the display on a glass surface with the standard feet it ain't going anywhere! It sticks to the glass and won't move, mine doesn't anyway...

    The supplied stand is actually two feet, each about 28cm front to back and a few cms wide. The screen slots into each foot and is then screwed to them. you have two possible fixing points for each foot, the widest ones being about 90 cm apart IIRC. you can fix the feet to the surface if you want.
    I don't use them now as I've hung it on the wall, but they work fine.

    Hi,

    Is there any reason to buy the Table-Top stand in addition to the panel from Empire Direct ?

    Does any one know if the panel from Empire Direct has a stand or two feet, as mentioned in this thread, included in the package ?

    I'll need to know soon as I might need to cancel the order for the stand !

    Hi Mr A,

    I believe the 2 feet come with the plasma as standard. The stand is an optional extra.

    Unless you have mental kids or large pets then the PDK-TS01 is pretty sturdy - we've supplied lots of them and no mishaps so far in the last four years.

    I use one and its NOT screwed to any surface and the wee man uses the panel as a bit of a climbing frame when trying to retrieve his favourite DVD's from the shelves above it!!!

    If your worried you could always have your glass top drilled by a local glazer.

    Mr Anderson

    I'm sure the ED boys could tell you - but if they cant then rest assured you will have a set of feet in the accessories box that's packed at the rear of the display.

    Why buy the pedestal - you may want the extra height it gives you if you are sticking a centre channel speaker on the top shelf of your rack along with the plasma (I have my AG A'Diva sitting in front of the display and with the feet rather than the pedestal it would encroach on the picture area).

    Also with only the feet in place you have to ensure your video cables are flexible enough to turn at 90 degrees and make a decent connection and don't have too long a set of 'boots' so that your overstressing the cable and connectors.

    Otherwise the feet are a great no cost option.

    Best regards

    Joe

    Thanks Joe & Dutch,

    After reading this thread about the feet before I posted, and getting a negative reply from the guys at ED after I posted, who said it didn't come with a stand/set of feet, I cancelled that part of the order and was going to wait until the panel arrived.

    I later found on one of the Pioneer site that have the display spec. sheets that the package includes the feet. I was just worried that, like CRT's where the stand/cabinet is package in a separate box, that it's not always sold to you as you'd expect. They usually charge extra for the closed cabinet pictured on the manufacturers web site.

    I'll see how things go with the cables I get and maybe get a stand later.
