Thanks for that I"ll have a look. Noticed the Pioneer 433 and Panasonic E10 are available in black but no freeview.

The ES20 is available in Black in the USA http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...f=pd_bbs_2/102-0080721-1466526?_encoding=UTF8
but of course, no Freeview over there.

Can't say have seen one in this country in black.

You could try contacting Panasonic UK and asking if the new models coming out shortly (ES15 i think is one?) will be available in black.

Zebs,
Just had a look at the 2006 Panasonic range and they are the usual silver with some black on the display, I think I"ll wait a little longer and see whats available in a month or so.
Going to upgrade my Panasonic PW5 next month, poss with one of the new Panasonic screens , so may well choose a recorder to match.

I think the new models are coming out in UK in March and April.

Edit: Ah, sorry i just noticed you said the 2006 range. Looks like black isn't the new black at Panasonic then
