    I'll try and keep this long story short. Ordered 42pv500 in July. Phoned to confirm stock. Was promised delivery in around a week. No joy. Chased. Got told I could now only have a Euro version (without tuner). Would there be any reduction for this (cheaper) model. No. If I wanted to have a uk model I would have to wait until the end of August at least. Went along with it out of desperation to get my Pv500 (and because they were considerably cheaper in fairness than the other stockists). Was again told it would be with me in a certain period. It wasn't. This has gone on and on and on. This morning I was told it would 101% be with me Thursday or Friday. Called a few minutes ago. Now it would be next week. The worse part is their attitude. Complete couldn't care less. Tough luck attitude. Cancel, see if we care. They know there is a shortage and that demand is outsripping supply so think they can completely take the p@ss. I would avoid these cowboys like the plague.

    In the meantime if anyone can recommend a stockist that is not unreasonably priced and, even better, with stock, Id be very grateful!

    Ive just had similar from PIXMANIA.
    Total lies on 6 occasions and I received my Yamaha 557 amp this morning, after I cancelled 8 days ago.

    Have gone with Panasonic store in Leicester. Were £2300 for wall mount which is a bit pricey compared with the deal they did for you Gonzo but they can supply it this weekend for me so Ive decided enough is enough and just ordered it. I'm concious that there is quite a shortage of these screens at the moment. So far so good with their service. Im still fuming with total digital. Ive never known such a bad attitude from a company.

    Gonzo/Craig,

    Hi, what is the email of the panasonic shop? May order it, if they still do the 3yr guarantee.

    Thanks in advance.
