Thanks for the clarification and quick response glencol, it's much appreciated- the whole plasma buying experience has been really intimidating to be honest because every store spouts forth absolute crap and their knowledge is appalling- It would be nice if there was some 'quality control' in some of these stores hiring policy.

Yeah i saw that price Scalpel but my quote of $6699 is 12months interest free (with HD STB) and i'm not 'liquid' enough currently to be able to whack it down in one hit.

NEC XR3W here i come baby!!!!!!

You can get all details of the NEC PX-50XR4W here and the latest 42" model and ask for price. http://www.qsphere.com.au/50xr4w.html

The 50XM4W is the black model. AV Actions prices are reasonable but not the best and they charge extra for stand/wall bracket.

Wonder if the hitachi 55" plasma have a fan. Both the hitachi 42" and 37" do not have fans.

edit...the fans are probably a good thing where panel is wall mounted or located where there is little airflow or where used in hotter ambient temperatures.

The demo 55inch unit I've seen in HN martin place is on a table, so you can have a good look behind the unit, I had a good look and couldn't find any fans or hear any so like the other hitachi units it appears to be fanless. I think hitachi can do fanless because they usually move a lot of the electronics into seperate media boxes to help reduce heat problems inside the panel.

that website has this model number for the 42" PX-42XM2. Bloody hell!!!! I'm over all these different codes, is this the XR3W just with a different code or an entirely different panel? If so why don't they have the XR3W?

For anyone in or near Sydney looking at the 42 or 50 inch screens from NEC, My recommendation would second that of BigAl.

Whilst I wont give the exact price, the price on the 50 inch was a quantam leap better than other on-line retailers I contacted (needless to say, the shopfront stores are even more pricey), and included the stand / mount. :blink:. It is considerably better than "cosmeticus"'s offer on Ebay.

Thanks again for the reccomendation. Needless to say, I have no particular affiliation with any retailer.

Now I just have to convince my wife that this is a good "investment" - maybe the old CRT's intermittent fault will just have to become permanent.

BTW - anyone know anything about the NHD-1000 NEC HD STB? (I will post this in the STB forum).

Scapel, I bought mine from gsphere and can recommend, very professional. I have no affiliations with them. Regarding the NEC NHD-1000 HD STB I will reply in STB Forum.

Anyone know any retailers in Newcastle with the NEC's on display ?. 

I have seen the 42" Viera and am impressed so if the NEC is better, I may have to buy one.

Thanks.

Rob

Why would you want a plasma with analogue inputs? Dont you want your digital display to be future proof with at least a DVI in let alone HDMI!

Many new DVD players, receivers and HDSTB's are appearing with these outputs......

For the guys with the NEC 50inch Plasma,  turn the deep blacks off and turn the contrast down to 34 and youll find the colours are just so much better.

Angelo  :blink:

Hey angelo, whats the next upgrade :ph34r:

On a serious note, good to see you are enjoying your plasma

Cheers

the NEC 42 inch models PX-42XM3W or PX-42XR3W run out for forum members only for $5500

Hi all,

In your opinions, how do these stack up against the Hitachi 42PD5000 and the Viera 42 for PQ and functionality? (Note: I'm not equating the Viera and the Hitachi, just interested in using both as benchmarks to compare the NEC against).

Ta,

Ian

Hey Glenncol,

I was wondering the same thing (hence my post on PQ, etc) since these were only released about a month ago, weren't they?

Now that you have given it the thumbs up, I'm really tempted to blow my budget totally out of the water and just get one of these now - so that I can get back to life and move onto some other problems. :blink:

Has anyone seen one on a shelf in Brisbane where I can check it out?

Cheers,

Ian

OK!!!! Final question before I load the 12-gauge, don the deerstalker and unleash the hounds ... How does this NEC 42" stack up against the Fuji 42"?

As far as pricing goes eHome in Melbourne is very very competitive to the prices listed and maybe better but more to the point have commited them selves to providing excelent knowledge of the product and a fantastic back up service to boot

Thay do ship all over Australia and more to the point have a shop front that is totally decked out with the NEC range where you can go and auditioned what you are buying.

it concerns me a little with all the box mover companies poping up all over the place where thay have no shop fronts and ship directly from the distributor.

you have to ask yourself the question will they care if there is a problem

When looking for the NEC 42XR3W i rang NEC and without hesitaion they put me in touch with eHome as being the best place to go

It's a shame I'm no longer in Melbourne! However, the 12-gauge and hounds usually ensure good after sales support. :ph34r:

Yet another reason why I don't like purchasing anything over the 'net. How much has one really 'saved' if the hounds can't find the b****** later? :blink:

Looks like I paid a little more than I should have(which is a first for me) BUT

I must admit when I had a problem with the Nec the retailer rang Nec and they were out the next day.

Its going to be changed over as soon as the new one comes in.

In turn Im now using the original plasma till that happens.

So in my case I dont have any dramas paying that little bit more .

Glenncol, when you PM'd us for tech help we offered it to you. :blink:

You can ask the DBA about our reputation http://www.dba.org.au/index.asp?display=news&newsID=591 we were asked to provide technical set up for the recent retailer night. We are DBA members, we have no shop front hence the costs and savings are passed onto consumer. We've been in business 20 years and if you havn't seen us before then perhaps that's the reasons for your comments. If anything we are possibly the best qualified to provide tech support as we DO install and sell these items.

Thanks

Nothing can do more harm to any product than announcing a run out sale on a model just released so clearing this up would be great.

Also while on the subject peopel oerating with out shop fronts if you were to get a call froma customer wanting to audition the new NEC could you accomodate?

... and this is my problem!!! (Though in this case, I feel comfortable enough to go on Glencol's and Angelo's recommendations - who else in the world has tried so many plasmas at home with top-notch setups?!!)

I've just put the hounds back in the kennel after a hunting trip through central Brisbane in 25deg sunshine (does that answer your question, Glen?) - and the little beggars didn't pick up even a sniff of a 42XM3!

HN tried ransacking every other store in the country when I showed them the 12-gauge cash - but they only have the V models (VGA ie. 852x480) in their system, not the X models (XGA ie. 1024x768), in 42".

JB don't carry them and I couldn't find a Betta. That exhausted the likely price-matchers (though I might try calling my favourite Betta and a mate at "The Real Clive" on Monday - though I don't hold much hope for either of them having current models).

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

glenncol,

Not a run out sale, perhaps the terminology could be taken the wrong way. Run out as, at that price they have been running out aka moving very fast out of the store.

In regards to people viewing it, as mentioned we do not have the shop front. Hence the price.

We're installers first, but offer items for retail sale through the web that we do actually install. http://www.dba.org.au/index.asp?sectionID=88

alebonau, Point taken thankyou. You'll notice the signature provides a link and our Logo is on the DBA main site.

Thanks
