    Hello, everyone. :)

    I'm in a position where I have to recommend a RPTV for my nephew.

    I've done searching, and narrowed down to 2 RPTVs.

    1. SONY KP-44 PS2
    2. SONY KP-51 PS2
    3. Panasonic TX47PT10

    They are new models from SONY and Panasonic.

    The lowest price I've got is....
    2500 GBP for Sony, 2200 GBP for Panny. :)

    My dealer reckons that SONY 44PS2 is better.
    (Even though 44PS2 does not support progressive scan for NTSC, it does have DRC-MF which is very similar thing. - He said it. :) )

    Which one should I go for ???
    (300 GBP price difference is not important at all. Picture quality for DVD movie is the prime factor.)

    Any thoughts ?

    Please help.

    Thanks. :)

    I have the Panasonic and I was lucky to get an ex display for £1500.

    the cheapest I have seen elsewhere is £1950.

    It was simple to set up. With the help of a friend i have it sitting on top of a Sony open fronted stand and It looks the business.

    The remote feels solid and is easy to use.

    I need an scart to RGP connection to get the progressive picture benefits but as it is the picture appears very good.

    The only problem is the screen is so big I noticed picture quality on football on SKY Digital appears very poor compared with a game on BBC through the dish and through the ariel and the ariel picture was far clearer. Is this a failing with the digital signal which this type of image.

    Anyway telly is excellent and I am not the biggest fan of Sony kit as it is always appears in my experience to be to be built with a 13 month life span if it works properly at all (see DAVS550 DVD player posts).

    Just ordered the PS2 from Techtronics.

    1550ukp approx, I forgot exactly.

    Inc. delivery by their own 2 man courier team.

    Expected next Thursday or Friday.

    I went for this because it was cheaper, higher spec than PX2.

    It has twin tuner and DRC and switcable 100 to 50hz via ultimate theatre system.

    If you gonna get a PS2 you better hurry as they are fast becoming difficult to find.

    Techtronics is 100's pounds cheaper than elsewhere.

    I will keep you posted.

    Also the guy at Sony center explained that the new PX2 didnt have the DRC because Sony wanted to keep the price down as last year when all other manufacturers had RPTV at around 2000ukp, few wanted to spend an extra 800 ukp for a better picture as the quality of the picture on other RPTV at 2000ukp was OK but not as good.

    I agree, I had demo'd the PS2 6 months ago but thought 2500ukp was too much, now I got it for 1500.

    Just want side cabinets now.
