Being in the position to buy a new 42" plazma I have lurked on this forum for a couple of weeks. It has been very useful for narrowing down my choices. And you will not be suprised to hear that the three front runners for my review were: Panny PV500 , Pioneer 435 and Hitachi 7200. So today I have been to My Currys/Comet/Powerhouse etc etc to have a look at these sets. And the winner is: . . The Panasonic PE50. OK I know this wasn't on my list but to me it gave better pictures than the others and is cheaper. (tested on DVD component inputs and Sky input via composite). I am aware it isn't HD Ready but I'm not too fussed about that. So looking at prices it seems a quite good deal at Robert White £1704 inc 5 year warrenty. But then I got to looking at the PA50 which can be had for £1347 Here: 121 Electricals, but just 1 year warrenty and not UK model. So the questions are. ANyone had any experiance with getting warrenty repairs on a Grey import like the PA50? Anyone seen any better deals? What would you go for? (don't say a PV500 ) Am I missing anything?
