    I have decided to buy the PW7B with free scart board and pedistal stand from 123electricals4me. I hope I have made the right decision? Going by other users on this forum, it should be fine. Had a busy morning re arranging the living room, bought a cabinet from Ikea (Magiker) for it to stand on, and to store all my equipment.
    Pioneer 444 dvd
    Denon 2803 Receiver
    Panasonic E50 dvd recorder
    Pioneer freeview box
    Joytech av centre (still waiting delivery from Play.com)

    The following NOT in the cabinet apart from the centre speaker :)

    Energy take 5 speakers
    Mordaunt Short MS909 Subwoofer

    Thank you to everyone on this forum who has helped me make this decision.

    I got mine on Friday :clap:

    I was a bit wary of the TV quality having read some negative comments. All I can say is the picture almost seemed to impove throughout the day on Friday and watched the Bond film on itv Friday night - STUNNING!

    Wales vs Scotland on Sunday avo - the extra size on the screen really makes a difference, and the colour reproduction is just beautiful.

    Watched Master and Commander on DVD last night - wow.

    Just got to get a component video card now !

    Have my settings on Cinema, -5 contrast, -5 brightness, -3 colour. And it still knocks the socks off my old 28" 4:3 CRT telly (admittedly a cheap one).

    Even the stand is growing on me. Will post pictures once I have my backlighting in place.

    Hi
    Just installed mine this evening, great picture, can anyone confirm to me that turning the wobble function on should stop sky logo's etc burning the screen.

    I too need a new cabinet and have looked on Ikea's website at the Magiker range, very good but how the hell do you know what colours they are available in.

    Thanks for that, yes it is a bit odd only having one door but very good value.
