They have a Panasonic 27" TV DVD Combination now instead of the toshiba. I had an order placed for the Wega, but cancelled it and placed my order for the Panasonic. Good decision or bad? Just curious what everyone thought about it.

I am kind of actually lucky I missed the STV last week by a few hours. The panasonic does cost more than the Wega, so it is a better deal. Just hope it is a decent TV. Plan to use it in my dorm room, so don't need it to be too much )

just saw that, nice

is that the best offer though. Or is the LCD monitors better?

I have the WEGA, but it looks like that Panasonic would be a good choice if you don't already have a dvd player in your dorm.

are those LCD one only used for computer moniters?

Not the Samsung 17" SyncMaster 710MP. It got TV Tuner built in, so just hook up an antenna cable into it and watch TV on it without having a computer hooked up to it. Or you can work on your computer AND watch TV at the same time with the Picture-in-Picture capability. Pretty hot, IMO.

Man if only Free Flat Screens was open to Canadians...Imagine the possibilities.

I think the Wega is still the better option if you've already got a DVD player. I'm assuming the Panasonic is [ue174fe1f7a]this model[/ue174fe1f7a][=http//][ue174fe1f7a]this model[/ue174fe1f7a], since it's the only 27" I can find with a DVD but no VCR

This model (Panasonic PV-27DF25) doesn't have component video input and since I made the switch to component video I can't live without it (especially for gaming).

Can anyone confirm that this is the right model?

Hmmm.... Do you guys think Gratis would earn more if they did flatscreens for Canadians?

I think that they would earn a little more.... But probably not too much.

This has caused quite a dilemma for me since I'm about to put in my order.

I'm sure that the Panasonic DVD player has just as good of a quality connection as component video since it's hooked up INSIDE the TV. However, the Panasonic TV lacks both component AND S-Video hookups. What happens when blue laser DVDs come out??? Then you'll have to use RCA cables to hook it up!

Well, maybe I have answered my own question. I think I'm sticking with the Sony.

Panasonic TV's are good all around tv's, but i would go with the Sony. With the price of a OK dvd player at about $50, it is an easy decision.


10-08-2005 15:10:25

Well, as I said, it is good for my dorm room, that is all. Not like I would even use the connections on the Sony, so I am not worried about it. In the future I will end up investing in an HDTV that comes with everything that I will probably use. For now, the panasonic is just fine for me )

Wish I would have went STV today... Guess I will be waiting another week
