    about 1.5 yrs from now... having ordered one, just want to know likelihood of recovering price

    its a £1400 Philips 9618

    do you reckon the advances in Plasma screens by then will more than halve its value?

    I was considering renting the above at £17.50 per week but it works out at 910 per year , so I thought I may as well buy it and sell it later!

    i've seen a 2 month old 36" philips go for £500 18 months a-go!
    but looking like £600-£900 now
    1.5 years from now would be £400-£700?

    hm ok, that means buying it is £400-700 cheaper than renting it over 1.5 years

    the 9618 can be rented for £17.50 per week

    if i were you i would buy someyhing cheaper say:samsung 32" 100hz pure flat ws32z46vs £499.99 www.be-direct.co.uk

    renting is costly and i would only do-it if for less than 10 months anything other 10 months is half way to a new tv
    you could sell the samsung for £200-300 easy
    thats less than £4 a week for you .

    when plasmas and lcd prices half then you can buy one with the money you'll save

    but seeing you have a philips tv on the way its a bit late to send the tv back now.

    well its on the way

    i did consider 32" tvs since there are a lot of good deals on them however that extra 4" adds more viewing fun ... dont know whether the premium paid for those is worth it yet!
