    Have the chance to go to London this weekend. Would like to be able to view some plasmas side by side (or at least at the same dealer). Ideally the panasonics and hitachis. Can anyone recommend a good place for this?

    Cheers

    Best place to see loads and loads of plasmas is Harrods, however I can't confirm that they will be set up to show the best picture possible

    If I'm looking for anything AV then I go to Tottenham Court Road to view the gear. Lots of AV dealers all on the one road.

    Selfridges also has great selection of plasmas.

    TCR (Tottenham Court Road) has a few plasmas, but they tend not to be properly set up and impossible to get demos at weekends.

    If I were you I'd go to Harrods in Knightsbridge first, Selfridges in Oxford Street on the way to TCR.

    I spent many happy weeks of lunchtimes looking at plasmas in London and agree completely with StooMonster: The best places are Harrods, Selfridges and then TCR.

    Note that most of the plasma displays on TCR are upstairs or downstairs, with the stairs sometimes almost hidden away at the back of the stores. And, as Stoomonster says, it is important to check how they are connected when making comparisons - often some of them (usually the cheaper ones) are connected via composite video!

    And once you've decided what you want, then buy it from somewhere on the web...

    Go To Harrods. I was there today!!

    Although not all the sets looked great, the fact that there are quite a few on display, helps narrow your choice.!!

    I will say that I was most impressed with the most expensive:eek: Sony Pro 50in.(£10,000) !! Once seen, all the others look ordinary IMHO.

    Thanks for all the info. Ended up looking in Selfridges and Harrods. Selfridges don't stock any Hitachi models, but Harrods had a full range. Shame that Harrods had wired them up to an analogue signal that was showing home videos!

    Cheers
