    I put down a £1500 deposit on a pioneer 436xde today..I should be receiving it in about one to two weeks time..
    (Full price is £2270 excluding vat for screen only (speakers & stand is extra)..
    (Note this is from a guernsey retail store..So prices are very high over here)

    It's taken me about 6 months of researching to finally choose this TV screen..
    I started off wanting a toshiba 32"LCD and then that changed to a toshiba 37"LCD and after seeing how much better SD tv looks on the pioneer plasma to the LCD screens.I then changed to looking at 42/43" plasma displays..

    Set up has recently changed when my sony amp and sony dvd player died. They have now been replaced with a denon 2807 amp and 1920 dvd.

    Connections as follows
    Xbox 360 - component - amp
    sky - rgb scart - component adaptor - component - amp
    dvd - hdmi - amp
    amp - hdmi - plasma media box

    Amp then switches everything and tv is left on same channel.

    I have the Pio 504, which is a couple of generations older. It's still superb, and IMHO, Pioneer make some of, if not the best plasma's going.

    Enjoy your new panel, I'm sure you will. :)
