    The 505XDE is excellent ! :thumbsup:

    My parents bought one from Joe, arrived last Saturday AM, it was up on the wall and running by about 1.00 am Sunday .

    Connected to Denon 3910 - picture excellent.

    Sky is superb aswell !

    Not got freeview setup yet - another job for the hols along with setting up my 435XDE.

    I'd recommend the 505XDE and Joe to anyone . :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

    Regards,

    Stan.

    Yes, he does.

    He sent me some photos of an install he'd done - very nice !

    You'd really need to get in touch and see what he said .

    Regards,

    Stan.

    Hi, I looked at this display in the shops the other day, they had a satellite subscription for the shop just so they could show Euro1080 HDTV through the 50" version.
    It did look superb and was clearly better than the same picture coming through a 40" display

    Just one question, how does it display 1080 line TV when the resolution of the display is only 1280*768?

    Thanks
    Skiddins

    Skiddins,

    The plasma scales the 1080 signal down to suit the 1280 x 768.

    i have got mine now and i must say its brilliant the only prob i have is sky is through a scart rgb and when i trun the tv on (via standby) sometimes the sky epg blue text by the time is all fuzzy but if i turn sky off then on its ok? weird hey.

    lotr, ret of the king is mental on the 505, i also have a very minimal buzzing which is only apparent when there is no sound coming out the speakers

    top buy!!! i recommend.
