    Seen this plasma in action, and it is fab!

    Although you can get just as good performance out of a similarly priced Hitachi 42PMA400E, the Tosh does have that edge with the contrast ratio.

    It's a good buy!

    I think you may also want to get some response from owners, rather than just people like me who have just demoed it.

    Jake.

    As sprout said, the 42PW27 is a rebadged Panasonic 42PW5 plasma...the Panasonic plasma's are now at their 6th generation i.e. 42PW6. The PW5 was pretty good, but a few people thought it had buzzing noise and flickering problems.

    You should be able to get a black Panny PWD6 for about £2500 inc a component card and wall bracket, the silver one will be about £3k inc bracket - have a look here:
