    I don't know who made the player, it doesn't say anywhere on the machine or packaging. Its just been branded as Sky.

    The Plasma TV has'nt got many features apart from Freeze frame! I have the user manual if anyone wants to have a look here is the site :
    http://www.dwe.co.kr/eng/support/man_main2.aspsubject=Television
    The Model number is PDS4250.
    The picture quality to me is not as good as I thought it would be but I think that about all plasma TV's. On Sky news and the movie channels it is quite clear. DVD's ARE CRISP to watch and the sound is great too.
    If you have the £3750 to spend right away then im sure you could get a better quality TV but if your like me and dont have the money up front and you want your living room to be the envy of your family & Friends and have a TV you see only on cribs(MTV) then go fo it. Im well pleased. Its great for football matches and movies, normal programs like eastenders not so great. I give it an 8\10.

    many thx. seems pretty poor, however I have just done a price comparison for the 4210, which is worse, and its a very expensive TV. Anyone know why?

    I am about to get this package delivered so good news about the DVD multi region.

    I do have a question though, how long does this take to be delivered?

    I ordered on 20th November and surprise surprise the direct debit forms came through in record time of which I immediately sent back.

    Since then I have cancelled my rented TV and video which are being picked up at the end of this week.

    When I ring sky they just tell me the order has gone through and it has been with their 'couriers' since early last week who contact me to arrange a time to deliver.

    If it takes them (so far) over a week to call with a date how long should I expect to wait for the delivery?

    Anybody who bought this package, were you kept waiting long? I don't really want to be without a TV over Crimbo!

    Cheers
