    Things move pretty quickly in terms of product life cycle these days; though I think a replacement for the PV500 within 2/3 months of its UK launch is a touch optimistic.

    As Horny says the 8 Series Display models from Panasonic Business Systems will be along soon enough - simpler specs than the PlasmaTV models so potentially less to go wrong.

    Best regards

    Zebraman - I'd edit that post before you get a Ban :)

    As the HD and Joe have stated the PHD8/PWD8 panels will be out sometime towards the end of August and beginning of September. If you're specifically waiting for next incarnation of Viera TV's then they'll appear around March to April 2006, Panasonic tend to update their models in yearly cycles with the plasma panels getting released around autumn and the plasma TV's getting their turn in spring.

    Well, you've got the Samsung PS42P5H out now and in a month or two you'll have the PS42P5 with an extra hdmi port and scart socket at least if you can call that a newer model, so newer/different versions can appear fairly quickly.
