    I have decided to purchase a Panny PW7 but can't figure out what the difference is between the TH-42PW7B TH-42PWD7BS :confused: They are both silver, both same res and spec... same panel I am guessing so what does the "D" stand for in PWD7? I will be only be connecting via VGA and DVI so don't need and other connections although I see you can get a media box for the TH-42PW7B. Can someone please explain quickly what the difference is if any so that I can order today :D

    i went for pw7 and am very very happy with it.....don't have media box but have not seen good reviews for it here...only thing in its favour seems to be ease of use...would recommend using component and vga inputs (vga comes as standard)

    yes you can add 3 terminal boards to both 42" screens and there are some limitations Scart, HDMI and DVi can only go in slot 1 and 2, D-sub terminals and component can go in all 3 so you can have 3 component inputs but only 2 scarts
