    Been thinking about a PE50 (£1500 ish) for a while but with 9 feet viewing distance
    have been worried about PQ. Cant really justify the jump to £2200 for a Pv500
    but have seen the Hitachi 42PD5100 for similar money as the Pe50 but
    it has 1024 x1024 res.
    Is the Pe50 going to outperform the Hitachi with its contrast ratio or will the panny res let it down at that distance.
    Is there anybody out there with a crystal ball who can tell me when the Pv500 will hit the £1500 mark.
    Wow this stuff is mind numbing
    cheers for now

    The PE50 should be fine from that distance.
    the Hitachi is ALIS panel - some say don't touch them

    If you intend to watch a lot of "off air" stuff like SKY then the panny beats the Hitachi with regards to artefacts / dot fizz/ black level .
    500 series is close in price and it will probably be a while before you may have the funds to upgrade again so save a bit more for the 500 series IHMO.
