    We have a panasonic 42pe50 with cabinet stand, have been and still are very happy with it, (3 years old now).

    We want to go up to a 50 inch and pass this 42" down to one of the kids, we don't do gaming, watch Virgin CableTV so would like to be able to watch the free HD they offer, although there isn't much of it !

    Have no dish so freesat not an option.

    Watch lots of football :(

    I think we want to stay with panny but open to suggestions ........ ??

    Our budget is round £1,000.00 mark, and want to try and get something with the 5yr guarentee if possible.

    Also do Panny not do the cabinet stands like ours any more, I do like the stand we have now.

    Thanks in advance

    The latest Panasonic 2009 models will be out shortly. Check out the HD Ready P50X10, around £899.
    The Full HD 50PZ80 is being discontined and you may find it less than £1000.

    Panny still do the CAB stands on certain models and sizes, I believe the 42" plasma with CAB is now unavailable, but other sizes still do come with them.

    Ive just bought a 46 PZ80 with the CAB stand, the 50 is also available but I think (from what local dealer said so might be a bit of bully) it is the same stand so the 50 does overhang a bit. Not sure if this is the same for all models.

    Not sure if the new models are coming with the CAB Stands you could be as well ringing Panasonic direct to find out.

    One of you`re kids will be very happy. I had same tv and recently bought the 46pz80, and moved the pe50 into son`s bedroom.

    I am happy with my new tv, but unlike you I do not fancy getting the same kind of stand , and bought a black enclosed av unit, and have placed tv on top with pedestal supplied.
