    Any body know the best price of the Panasonic TH-42PW6B (Silver).

    Seen the black one at £2337 but the cheapest I can find the silver one is £2749.45 (with scart board) from techtronics.

    Bit of a rip off just for a colour change.

    Thanks for that super price.

    No mention of scart boards though.

    don't suppose anybody knows which connections are include by default on this model ?

    By default I think the PW6 comes with scart as standard and the PWD6 comes without any terminals.

    I think digital directs PWD6 doesn't come with any terminal board as they don't mention it in the blurb.

    Places like nexnix and av-sales normally bundle the scart or TM6Y (composite/component) board with the PWD6. If you need a wallmount etc then the nexnix and av-sales bundles work out about the same as buying the screen elsewhere and then adding the extras.

    Many thanks for all your help.

    I gave them a call this morning and they confirmed that the PW6 comes with a scart board.

    Not sure that I need the scart will probably connect by freeview via VGA using the JS converter as I believe it's much better quality.

    Will also need to get the component board for an additional £130.

    Excellent price in all.

    Just need to decide now if it's panny or hitachi.

    I have used them.....unfortunately my particular PW6 had a problem from new, but sorted out quickly thru' there customer service dept.
    A pain to get to on the phone though....just used the sales line and asked to be transferred instead!!
    You could also look at soundandvisiononline.com.....same prices as DD, but easier to get on the 'phone.

    cheers mate,

    which one is better isn't digital direct bigger. Now i'm really confused !!!.

    well I guess digitaldirect changed your screen quickly which is a good sign....

    oh do you know if the scart provided is capable of S-vid\composite
    av sales claims it does :-
