    Hi everyone,

    Seems like there is a lot of confusion created by Panasonic with the new Viera line being introduced in the overseas market while keeping their existing "plasma display" range all at the same time so here is the topic that will clear everything up.

    I think you'll find that in addition to the above the UK models are using gen 6 glass as well!!!!! ( looking at the us/jap and U.K. specs, U.S seems to have more available colours etc ) so the uk seems only get at best a 6+ panel, not that its not a good panel anyway
