    the Hitachi 5200 is not 'HD Ready' - Hitahci released the 7200 to take care of that problem - Althought the 5200 is still a cracking scren if you don't mind ALIS (Alternate lighting of surfaces - Do a search on google for ALiS)

    The LG PX11 again is not HD ready, and some people rave over it and it is good for the price, but there are plenty better.

    The Pan PE50 is nice and is one of the best SD (Standard Definition) panels - so again not HD Ready

    And the LG PY10 - not seen much of this.

    But if you have £2.5k to spend then i would suggest the Panasonic PV500 with Cabinet and free DMR-ES10 DVD recorder.

    HD Ready (720p and 1080i) and plenty of inputs.

    I'm sure someone else will be along soonish to add their opinion, but what i will say is make sure you have a demo of the screen you buy and take some of your own DVD's to check out (no animation as these look good on most screens) - dont judge the screen on some crappy RF feed.
