    Hi

    I need a little help I could be in the position of buying a 506xde very soon and I am wondering what is the lowest price You guys & girls have seen it advertised for.

    To be honest I have not auditioned this Pio yet but I might have a trip to My local sevenoaks and see the beast in the flesh.I have just been reading the review regarding the 506xde in this months Home cinema mag it gives it a blinding review has anybody out there had any problems with this plasma.

    I have seen it in running in a shop in Croydon and it was sweet man, very crisp and that was through RGB not even component progressive. Not sure about prices as I have only the room for the 43". Mind you I saw a 7 grand LG in Dixons that floored me it was so sharp....we can dream.

    I'm trying to get John Lewis to pricematch Krishav @ £3299.
    Absolutely worth the extra for service and FIVE year warranty!

    JL will supply you with a XDE but they wont stock them.If you are ordering the Plasma they will pricematch providing it meets the criteria.I have pricematched a 506XDE but because its a factory direct order it seems to be a little slow.

    Well I have just recieved a nice letter from My employer stating that they owe Me quite alot of money :D and I get it at the end of the month :clap: :clap: :clap: .

    The carpet story is as follows our helpful carpet fitter has a roll end for us which just happens to be the same style and pattern so that is pleasing the wife no end and she has said that if I do the hall ASAP I can have My 50" toy.

    The only problem is should I buy one or two pio 506xde Dave911 :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

    They've agreed to the price matches with krishav
    You're about the factory direct order. warned can take upto 6 weeks!!
    I'm thinking of ordering the 436 xde @£2375 pricematched by JL.
    I think the 50" may be too big for me
    How long have you been waiting?

    When you price match with JL, do they still throw in the speakers, stand and warranty?

    Same here, no XDE available from JL. No idea how these other guys are getting one to tell you the truth.

    I got my price match with Crampton and Moore(no speakers or stand).The trick is to order the TV then agree the pricematch later(I think you have 30 days).I did think at first they were accommodating me because of my problems with my Sony but its seems others have agreed pricematches.

    Phoned Milton Keynes, they don't sell the 436 XDE, sure you don't mean FDE?

    Any other JLs to try?

    I am in the process of pricematching JL in Bluewater against Sevenoaks HIFI. Anybody know of any other stores in stock at £3600 or less? so that i can get a lower price?

    Cheers
