    Iv been to see the pioneer today and was really impressed with the PQ. The screen was showing hd pictures off a satellite channel. Is the PQ really that bad on sky and freeveiw, really like the look of this screen but some comments on here are putting me off.

    The PQ of the 435XDE is excellent providing that your source signal is good. With a decent DVD player (ideally HDMI) and Freeview connected to an aerial with a strong signal you won't be disappointed. And think of the benefits once Sky High Definition arrives next year.

    We are all praying that the HD Sky box comes with an HDMI through port so that we can keep our DVD players connected at the same time...

    the picture won't look anything remotely like a high-definition demo channel.

    its not hard to find a XDE on display with a good aerial signal or even a dedicated Sky box - check it out first, unless you like to gamble with thousands of pounds...I dearly dearly wanted to buy a Pioneer, I love the brightness and colours, but its just not acceptable for me, so you may find the same - sit down (if you can!) and demo the screen for a good hour or so with normal TV - you'll thank yourself, and can buy in peace

    or, the more sensible thing is to wait a couple of months and see the new HD contenders from Panasonic, Sony et al and choose between them all.
