Great spec. Comprehensive inputs. More flexible DVI resolutions. R, G & B settings can be adjusted individually. Point to note, the commercial Grey model does not have HDCP-DVI, only standard DVI (assuming european models are the same). Silver model does.
But contrast ratio? brightness?
Very promising though. Owner on the AVS Forums over the moon with his.
This NEC Plasma has now caught my eye. I had my heart set on the Pioneer 433 (which can be had for £2999inc now), but now I've seen this, its thrown a spanner in the works! Will the NEC be better in general then Pionner? I really need a plasma that is fully HDTV compatible....
Just spoke to Liam at av-sales. First time I've called them - he seemed really helpful. Stock levels seem good direct from NEC, except for the silver stand. Although Liam did say he could get them quite quickly.
That'll be mine. I've decided to go with my original plan and buy a 42HD Panny, which until last week had always been my intention. Why? well the specs on the NEC are certainly impressive but there are too many concerns for me that won't be answered by the end of this month (purchase time). Black level performance (in a dark room) big concern, contrast ratio not published, brightness level not published etc. I not happy to buy relying solely on comments on the AVS Forum (although a very helpful thread), with no other UK feedback at this stage. Also I'm not encouraged by a UK review of the 42VP4G (grey pixel noise etc).
