    Looking for some help from a 505 XDE owner. I'm intending to buy a Pioneer 505 XDE from Costco, but the box it comes in has both XDE and HDE graphics on it. The model code on the back of the actual Plasma screen doesn't help at all, it says PDP-50PE.

    Could someone verify the XDE model code on the back of their Plasma screen is PDP-50PE, couldn't get any sensible help from the guys in Costco and it would put my mind at rest before buying it.

    Cheers
    Billy

    The screen will be the same, the only difference between the XDE & HDE will be the media box and remote. The XDE has a nice heavy metal remote while the HDE's is plastic. If you do a search there shoudl be something on this in other threads.

    I was a little worried when my XDE arrived...

    It's £3999 inc VAT, but it's the no quibble returns policy and 3 Year guarantee that I like.

    It also comes as a package in Costco ie screen & media box plus table stand and speakers. Don't need speakers so will have a wee look for a better deal without speakers but with at least a 2 year warranty.
