    Maybe in some other contex, but now the dragoon has come round to the idea that a Plasma would look nice, I cannot see how the extra in 7" on a 43" Pioneer is worthy of the £1500 step up.
    Prices at Empire Direct.

    PIONEER PDP433MXEV Plasma 43" 16:9 Monitor - Black £3,497.78
    PIONEER PDP433HDE Plasma 43" 16:9 With Pdpr03e Tuner £4,079.89
    PIONEER PDP503MXEVS Plasma 50" 16:9 Monitor - Silver £5,497.57
    PIONEER PDP503MXEV Plasma 50" 16:9 Monitor - Black £5,497.57

    Have you been to look at the actual screens? There is quite a big size difference. Worth £1,500 IMHO.

    Seven or eight diagonal inches, is actually a significantly larger display area; and is good value for money IMHO.

    I've got a Panny5 50" myself, it was irresistable when compared to the 42" models.

    You should check some out side by side.

    Just taken the plunge and ordered a 503MXE

    Along with a Pio VSA-AX10AI and 757i, B&W VM1's + Sub

    May be +1500 ....... but better to be happy than regret it in my opinion. All about the budget of course.

    Try lifting a 50" display - you'll know where the extra £1500 goes :)

    Side by side the 43" displays look tiny compared to a 50" display - though you do require a big viewing room for the 50"; or you are happy for it to dominate your living room.

    I've never had a customer ask to return a 50" for a smaller display - though I have had a couple of requests to step up to the 50" shortly after customers have received the 43" displays.

    Best regards

    Joe
