I went to the coop to buy a decent frying pan and came back with this: http://www.skymediamanufacturing.com/datasheets/sky/SKY-EN42S1L_.pdf

They are on sale at £899.00 come with a very solid alloy stand, wall mountable and had sturdy detachable speakers. I am a CCTV engineer by profession and I judged it to be a very watchable picture. I have a DVD that has componenent output so, as this screen has the inputs, I have a very high quality picture off DVD. If you read the blurb, it has a more than adequate array of inputs including VGA, and DVI. There is an analogue tuner on-board, (so did you think you would get digi for this price!!). It uses the same menu structure as my Goodmans 26" LCD.

As the Co-op is 200 metres from my house, I wont have any expensive costs for return if it goes faulty.

This appears to be made in Swizerland, (I would say 'assembled') It is a 'fanless design' and I would be interested to know who makes the actual panel.

I have fitted a subwoofer for those little 'sonic moments' and recently watched the movie 'The Island' on it. We were all very impressed with the picture quality for such a cheap Plasma. Fingers crossed that it continues so. I wouldnt think that the Co-oP would want the headache of faulty products.

The Frying Pan has proved highly reliable in use- so far. The PDP is still great. I have now watched 'The Phantom of The opera' which we all thought was stunning. The living room is going to be re-arranged this weekend to get the screen centrally on opposite end wall. I have to get the ladders out and re-route the aerial cable. (its less messy than having it going all round the room!). Eventually there will be a HTPC, wall mount and 5 channel sound. When its all done I'll post a photo
