a rather silly mate of mine bought a naff 50", they have to watch it from the kitchen as the sofa is about 3 feet from the screen

wish I could afford one of these, great screen and a decent price. 42" is as big as I can go so I'm praying someone discounts the panny's in the sales.

The Panny's have built in speakers and are very good quality...

The Pioneers are probably the best around at the moment but do not come with built in speakers.

That review has convinced me to go for the 500A. I've got the cash and the will all I've got to do is persuade the better half.

Just do it! She'll eventually come around and if she doesn't, well, you'll always have a gorgeous screen!

Has anyone connected these to a laptop/pc?

I am thinking of going for one but have to make sure it doesn't cause issues when connecting my laptop to it.

I have a HDMI output on my XPS M1330 so will be connecting it to the display.

I had to return a Philips 9603 because it was rubbish at displaying the picture from the laptop.

I don't want to have to return it for the same reason as the Philips.

You'd probably be better off asking on or reading through the thread on the AV Forums
500+ pages of discussion about the 9g Pioneers

I can only vouch for my experience, but I hook up my 5090 to my Acer Aspire 5920g via HDMI and it looks fine to me in 1080p.

I think you can buy speakers from Pioneer for it...

Own a 436 screen - will never buy another brand of TV now - simply stunning sets. Hope for a upgrade next year...

I think there are companies still selling the 8G 42" Pio panels, which are also awesome.

I've just googled 428xd and 4280xd (the 8g pio models) and they are out there but they're still going on for the price of the 5090. My budget is about half of that sadly so will be stuck with something along the lines of a px80/pz80 I reckon.

It's shocking how quickly you get used to a larger screen - IMO if it's anywhere near borderline go for the 50"

I have received an email confirming delivery of my 500A for next Monday...My Speakers and Slim wall bracket are coming tomorrow, so I will be ready to set up on Monday evening.
I now need to put my Pioneer LX5080 up in the bedroom if the other half will let me

If you've got the Pio bracket use the template they send with it otherwise you will end up with the screen off center. The pio bracket is a doddle to put up and you can do the screen one manned as it isn't that heavy, just awkward.

What's the PIP/PBP functionality for this like? Can you watch two freeview channels at the same time?
