I've read several threads tracking Dell's prices on the 503, but I haven't seen much regarding the 433.


I'm leaning toward purchasing the Pioneer 433CMX over the Panasonic PWD5 for upgradability and elimination of the screen door effect that I've noticed on the SD Panasonic.


The current 433CMX price from www.plasmaextreme.us is $4247, and www.1800plasmas.com is $4229 both including the PDA-5002 and shipping.

I ordered the Panasonic on December 5th with next day delivery, the date change to delivery shipping on December 10th, I contacted Dell and was told on backorder, I then called Electrograph and they told me they expect a shipment on December 17th and I've been on that road before not sure if it's the right one.


I need this set guaranteed by Christmas, and the representative at Electro graph told me that they had a good supply of the Pioneers and that they can ship out as soon as they received confirmation from Dell or if I called them back with my new order number, in case they're slow to enter, so I decided to spend a few extra dollars for the pioneer and now I'm glad I did.


I called Dell canceled the Panasonic order and ordered the Pioneer.


It was a different representative.


I couldn't take the chance of not having the plasma by Christmas.

I'm in the exact same boat.. I think I'm going to cancel the order as well and go w/ a pioneer.. did they pricematch a particular web site or did they just give you that price?

I think it means: When you stand very close to a screen you can see the screen (the horizontal and vertical wire mesh) then when you back away it seems to disappear, I've noticed this on the Panasonic and to my old eyes it takes about six to eight feet for the screen door effect to disappear.


I'm sure there's a better exclamation but to me this is how I interpreted it.

Does anyone know if Dell sticks their logo on it, or does it just come directly from Pioneer? HH: You'll have to let us know when it arrives!

ugh.. I an so frustrated with these people. The guy I spoke with said they didn't carry them, and to call back tomorrow to speak with the guy I ordered the screen with because he can't (won't) help me. I'm beginning to hate Dell, and am tempted to cancel the order just out of spite.

HuskerHarley--dayum, you must have the magic touch or something with getting those great Dell price quotes; first the Panny, now the Pioneer. Now I can't decide whether to go with the Panny or the Pioneer, backorder or not notwithstanding...then again, I still need the wife to release the funds for purchase.:( With my luck, even if/when she approves, I betcha the Pioneers will be on backorder by then...:mad:

Here's how I got my 433CMX from Dell for $3852 shipped thru the small business section back in sept.


Dell part number for the 433CMX is Part#: A0014773


1 Ordered the 503CMX thru the Small Business and apply what ever coupons and discounts you have. Got an order number.

2. Called customer service and told them that I wanted the 433CMX instead, give the part number.

3. Make sure all the discounts that were applied to the 503 order is on the 433cmx.

4. Wait for confirmation and shipment.
