    My other half wanted to get married. I told her before we got married I wanted a plasma. Didn't think she would get me one 2 days later!
    So I'm working on her getting me an Evo 7 for a wedding present :)

    I made a big fuss about how dangerous it was for our 11 monbth old standing right up against the screen of our crt and how we needed something out of his reach, say up on the wall or something...

    I've been using that one myself since last month. It did the trick. Besides, my toddle has a habit of hitting my 29'' Sony with whatever he has at hand. I'm off to buy a Panny PA30 from easy-ware.de :rotfl: Btw anyone has done business with them before? They sound ok to me but...

    My wife didn't like the look of a big crt or rearpro tv unbalancing her room design so I was able to convince her on the aesthetics basis. The only other option I had was to divorce her !

    I simply don't understand the problem. My wife saw a PW4 in John Lewis 3 or so years ago, and said 'We've got to have one!' She had no idea what I did for a living I think, as I was in exhibition rentals then. Complete failure on my part to explain what a plasma display was. I replied 'I've been trying to tell you'. The funny part is, we still don't have one to call our own. Currently playing with a PWD6 and digital input, but it belongs to the firm.

    I'm in the same boat as you MAW. My other half saw them in Comet a while back and said "Ohhhh, they are gorgeous". Now ... all I have to do is save the money and buy one! :)

    I had help from the local authority! We were going to build an extension to the house, but the LA decided against it. Planning permission no problem, lifting of an easement - no way!

    We needed more space, so I convinced her that the huge area of the room that was effectively taken up by the TV could be used if we put a plasma on the wall.

    2 months later, and the plasma has pride of place, and the useable area of the room is much bigger.
