    I'm looking for the best 50" looking model and picture.

    Don't need input for computer on it.

    I have the Pionneer in mind. What u think?

    Please help, I've had enough reviewing and I'm buying this week! :suicide:

    The Fuji has just been reduced in retail price to £4500 so some skillfull negotiation may see it at a more competitive price, still. As Dilsher says, they are all good screen and you'll find plenty of supporters of each on this forum.

    Hi Hornydragon, what does that mean? It's got HDMI, the panel native size is 1280x768...What is wrong with the HiDef on that display panel?

    nothing it is Hi def, what i meant to say was
    the panny scaler combo (7 series panels) will do HiDef with a scaler but it may Judder due to FRC (Frame Rate conversion) if HD isnt that important to you its worth considering as a seperate scaler will outperform the built in electronics in every currently available plasma under £6k

    mate ,
    as i have just said in another thread.
    wait!
    if youve waited this long another two and half months wont kill you.
    i really feel at that time you would be in a prime position to say whats best.
    there two all new products coming,i feel it'll be worth it.
    if not ,the products that you feel that you want now,will be discounted further at that time.
    And i would that to all people looking to purchase 42-50 plasma screens or looking to spend 2-2.5k+
    in fact theres even a good few ranges of lcd coming.
    in the end the choice is yours

    I've just taken delivery of a Fujitsu P50XHA40US. I can't say that I've A/B tested it with any other screen but this is my first plasma and I am very, very happy with it. No complaints whatsoever.

    a display is a plasma panel no speakers, (cause you have a super duper 5/6/7.1 system already) No tuner (you have Sky+ Cable etc already) where as a TV is a monitor with a tuner and some normal quite ropey for the money speakers in one box.......................

    If you want a TV then wait and look at the Pioneer506 series and the current PV500.

    If you want the best picture currently available then look at either a Fuji50"US or a Panasonic 50" commercial unit with an external video processor (i'd recommend Lumagen HDP(I am the distributor))...oh and no matter what you get have it calibrated by a professional ISF calibrator after you've had it a few weeks (best £250-£300 you'll spend on your video system).
