Those of you in the market for a nice new 50" plasma cannot help but have noticed that the price of the "last few remaining" 504HDE screens have come down to about £4k. This is a fantastic price and, given I'm looking to buy a plasma before Christmas, I am sorely tempted. The only thing holding me back is the impending arrival of the 505XDE. I am not fussed about the digital tuner (the set will be used with Sky+ and a Denon 2910 DVD player) but I am interested in what people have reported about the 435XDE (i.e. that the picture quality is better than the 434). I have heard reports, though, that the screen surround on the 435 is more "plasticy" than the 435. This is a big concern because SWMBO has approved the 504 on looks... You'll have spotted the dilemna. I don't think that anyone has yet laid hands on a 505XDE (or am I wrong) but any opinions or suggestions most gratefully received! Mike.
