Ok, I've spent what seems like forever getting to the bottom of what the PW7 plasma tv offers you above and beyond the PW6 or PWD6. And the conclusion, not very much at all. I've spoke to loads of suppliers and panasonic themselves, and here are the results. 1. Other than the HDMI capability and several further component boards, the PW7 internals are essentially identical to the PW6. 2. There is no increase to contrast, shades of gradation, colours or the MACH system. The UK PW7 will not have motion picture disturbance (MPD) noise reduction or the 3D colour management system. These feature and improvements to contrast, shade gradation and colour will will all feature on the US and Japan versions, but not for the UK. 3. The screen is of a better quality than the PW6 and burn in problems have been reduced because of this. The PW7 screen is essentially the same as that of the PE30 (quote from Panasonic) On another seperate point, after further discussions with Digital Point it transpires that the model they are selling is the TH-42PW7B, the official UK model. Their return to base warranty is back to themselves (at your own cost) for their engineer to fiddle around first before it goes back to Panasonic UK if it can't be fixed. The TH-42PWD6BX also appears to be the UK model also, but the TH-42PW6 is not necessarily the UK version, even though Panasonic UK supplied it to DP! So at the end of all that I shall be ringing AV-Sales up (as they've not got back to me) and ordering a TH-42PWD6BX very soon Hope this helps somebody!
