    Ask 5 people, get 5 opinions. I am going to have a demo of them next week as I have made the same choices (pioneer and panny). Nothing like seeing the beasts side by side. I suppose there is always some subjectivity in the matter.

    Regards,

    Well as PVR said everyone has their own opinion, but most people including the experts tend to agree that the Panasonic 4 and 5 series are excellent. I own a TH-42PWD4 and all I can say is "excellent". You won't go far wrong with either a 4 or 5 series, just superb!!

    Demo is on thursday, will let you guys know what the verdict is ...

    Just a dilemma, as I am seeing a small company, they can never match the prices you can find on the web. Maybe I should just pay for the advice and buy elsewhere.

    Any views on that?

    Phatboy.. check out www.keydigital.com

    There you have a plugin card with better scaling, 2-2, 3-2 pulldown.. that´s as much as I know.

    Pay extra 1000quid, seems quit a bit.

    We compared the Pionneer and the Panny on sunday 4th at Brent Cross (see seperate post) Viewing & Comparing a Panny verses Pioneer

    It was not an ideal comparision, but there wasnt that much in between them. Yes perhasp the Panny was darker, but the colours of the Pioneer seemed more impressive.

    Im expecting delivery of my 433 MXEV this weeek :D

    There are reviews on this site to consider, There is a Pioneer 50" which was highly rated in the July 2001 issue, it cost £9,000 then but must be possible to find at a lower price.

    On what site.. homecinemachoice. Well homecinema and what hifi and those sorts aren´t really that deep reviews, they seem to have their hands full and review alot, so they don´t really check out the gear that much technically or compare against other stuff. But it´s always nice to see a good review.

    The dealer here is gonna get a 43" Pio next week, can´t wait to check it out :)
