The HD Guru hates to burst everyones bubble, but when he saw the press release that stated the 63" Philips Plasma model 63PFP7422D was 1080p at $3500, he suspected the information was wrong (if it sounds too good to be true it probably isn't true).



Checking with a high level Philips executive, its been confirmed the 1080p model retails for $5999 not $3500


The one for $3500 is 1366 x 768.


Yeah, The HD Guru has seen CNET and other websites report the $3500 1080p 63" Plasma, however, they are all wrong. The HD Guru "fact checks" before reporting.

I understand what you are saying, but I looked up and down on HDGuru and found nothing on your reporting...At least this type of information would be documented and corrected immediately.

Well, the Philips website says $3,500 and HDGuru says he saw a press release that says $5,999.


Clearly, there is a conflict and we can't know which is the 'right' answer as of today.


I did think that $3,500 for a 63" 1080 was super-cheap, maybe too cheap. On the other hand, given a 5-month wait and Philips ramped up production with LG, $5,999 isn't that much of a bargain.


I think the 63" 720p model, if it retails for the $3,599, is still a good deal relative to what Pioneer and Panny charge, unless they drop their non-1080p prices a lot in the next few months.

so if the first post in this thread is actually by the Guru, why doesn't he post it on his website, I am sure it would be BIG news for many people, including myself, when he gets his FACTS straight and actually writes about it on his website, then I will believe him, reason is he has nothing to say about Philips whatsoever on his sight, only Panny, Pio and Samsung talk, makes you wonder.
