Hello! Having just had a LG RZ-42PX11 cancelled on me, I'm having a re-think on my choices. Essentially I was so unconvinced for the need of a higher spec Plasma (and price) and therefore went for the LG. Essentially I have since had a v.good deal offered ot me on the Panny 42pe50 - but I remain unconvinced that it's the right tv for me! LG = cheapest of the two at £1299. Good reviews generally in this forum and can see why I went for this orginally. Big negative for me would be sound quality from two speakers - no plans yet to rig up sound system. Panny = Offered at £1780 with ped stand and DVD recorder. The G8 panel is the big draw to this, although I read that connectivity isn't great and it lacks the speakers set up of it's predessor (pe30 range). Would I be right in thinking it's Pannasonic's entry into the value market? And if so, would the LG be the better buy even depsite the free £200 dvd recorder.
