  1. well ... in Singapore the large TV prices are about twice as much as Australia... so... plenty of stock over here at about AUD$8k .... not cheap ... but it is what it is .... at least I'll get it fast ... I just hope my cabinet will hold the weight... the old 50" NEC is pretty heavy.... so it should be fine ... the 50" moving to the bedroom (large bedroom), and the 40" in the bedroom moving to the library .... enough TV's alredy ...
  2. good to see Foxtail... I ordered mine yesterday.... I was tossing and turning between a projector or upgrade from my 50" plasma.... I think I'd use the plasma more often... so pulled the trigger.... should arrive this Friday ....
  3. I was thinking about picking one up and shipping up here to Singapore... in Singapore, the 60 pio is a bargain at 18k (discounted ... rrp is 24k)... and, hard to find ..... my hope now is that panasonic bought Pio plasma .... sooner rather then later we'll start to see some pio technology difuse through pana's model range... anyway, I have until September to convice the CFO, since we'll be shipping the remainder of our gear in storage from Sydney to Singapore, and it would be a convenient time to ship it all up here .....
  4. bargain.... I have mine and there's no discerning PQ from the 983 and the DVDO VP50 ... I love it... i use it with a Sony W400 40" ... top PQ ...
  5. I'll be interested to see what it looks like... I'm thinking of upgrading my 50" in the lounge to a 60" full HD... the problem since relocating to singapore, is that any panel above 32" is much more expensive here then Australia... the 60" Kuro here is selling for $14k AUD after discount.... .. that's crazy pricing....
  6. I just bought the new Sony 40" W400A ... for the 32, IMHO, the Panasonic 700 is the best there is .... I originally wanted the panasonic, but I couldn't get any stock in Singapore, so I started looking at the Sony 40" and since I inteded to use as a bedroom tv/PC TV, LCD was a better option for this set up..... the Sony looses a bit of colour when you look at it in an angle, even though you can still see the picture... the pana 32 700 is perfect from any angle you look at it ... if they made that in 40" 1080p ... I would have got a panasonic instead.... the difference between the 70 and 700 model, besides the better contrast is the sound ... the 700 has very good built-in speakers... perhaps it may not justify the price difference (aud$300) here in sing between the 70 and 700 model... but looking at them side by side.. the 700 won hands down... beating even Sony ..... if your budget streches that far and you can get hold of stock the 32 700 is great. there is also a 37" 1080p model being launched soon ... I haven't seen one in person, but "What Hi Fi" review suggests is no improvement over the 32" 700 PQ .....
  7. you can get the 875 for around $S 1,850 - then take the GST off at the airport also .... S$1,000 more for the 905.... S$ 2,850 .... not bad really.... some things are even cheaper in HK ... I'm here this week.... just spotted a 500Gb external storage for aud$95 .... and yes, that's with the HDD inside... soo cheap....
  8. Thanks Lyle for the PM ... been too busy with work to check the forums lately .... the move to Singapore didn't help either! I did upgrade to a 500 Gb Seagate SATA II ( It could have been a 750...) .... the third FW upgrade recognized the correct disk size and I did a reformat and it worked fine.No problems mounting the drive, etc.. tight space, but easier then the old 5000's for HDD upgrades .... better internal layout. However, the disk was a 'standard PC' issue... and therefore noticeably noisier then the one the toppy comes with ... so my suggestion would be to make a special order for a seagate 750Gb CE edition, which is much quieter and optimised for CE devices .. I've been in Singapore since mid October... so I haven't kept up with later FW updates on the 7000 ..... Good luck... I'd definitely suggest at least a 750Gb SATA II CE Edition ... prices are pretty good these days ..... Any questions, please PM me.... Cheers, Marcelo
  9. I'm very happy with the PS3 as a blu ray player..... it is much better then any other stand alone player under $2k .... plus its much more versatyle..... media server, games machine, etc.... the Xbox should come with a HD DVD player as standard.... hopefully the next version will ....
  10. Thanks Dave..... I will take my Norton's out also! Hope that works..... Cheers & Merry Xmas, Marcelo
  11. Guys, I don't know what I did to my PC, but the Vista Media Center will no longer connect to my Xbox 360 .... I tried resynching it, I enter the code many times, etc... and nothing, it can't find the Xbox as the 'extender' ..... 360 My 'system restore' won't work either.... again, don't know why .... I tried registry tools, etc... no avail ... the funny thing is that I can see my Xbox in the 'media share' centre, my firewall settings, my port listings, UDP, etc.. all are fine..... I'm trying to find a way where I won't have to reinstall Vista .... Thanks in advance for any ideas or suggestions .... Cheers, Marcelo
  12. paid about $1,000 for mine earlier this year.... still love it though .... fantastic PQ and discs from Amazon ..... at the price you mentioned above... its seriously a no brainer!
