    this screen i feel is not given a fair chance on here :eek:
    granted it is more than likely the poorest screen :thumbsdow
    it is also the cheapest in the country i would think :smashin:
    i have had one for a month now and it is now 100% better than when i first got it :clap:
    i have a 5 year warranty that covers everything including accidental damage :laugh:
    so i will be able change it when i want :D
    it is just 1300 and it will fill the gap untill i can afford better and with good scart leads 75 quid a piece and some hard work you will get a fair picture
    haggle for your warranty i got mine reduced from 420 quid to 200 quid
    and use the warranty when the times right
    my best settings so far have been
    brightness=70
    contrast=40
    sharpness=6
    colour=35

    not the cheapest at all, argos were doing a 42" goodmans for £999
    I understand thats the same screen as the Techwood, but different badge.
    They are still both Pooh though. If you gotta buy pooh, why not buy the cheapest pooh?

    hey hornydragon which panny can you point me in the direction of a review please
    also can anybody tell me which rebadged model the techwood is please
    because i think if they rebadge without telling you that should be a good enough reason to get a refund and maybe a panny

    Horny is referring to the PWD6 panny - I guess you're new on here!

    See the flashing banner add at the top from AV Sales.

    There has been a whole HDD full of stuff written on this plasma.

    Forget reviews they are pretty useless go see a PW6/7 properly set up and see this thread:http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=154292&highlight=beginner
    Also the early Techwoods were Samsungs under the skin with a crappy tuner box Panny PW6 with all the bits will set you back £2k

    Can't blame you for trying,but I doubt that attempting to return something due to the fact that it is rebadged will get you very far - if it is of a merchantable quality and not mis-sold,then,depending on the retailer,you won't get very far - especially as you have had it for a month.
