    It would certainly be on my shopping list IF it was better than the series 6 panel.
    AV Sales have it listed but are using the specs for the series 6.

    Starburst, that's because on paper they are not really any different. The differences are mostly the input cards you can use, there are some quite exciting ones for the 7 series, I can't wait to get my hands on them.

    I would have had no problem buying the series 6 panel earlier this year when my RPTV died BUT for the first time I decided to wait and see the soon to be expected replacments. I'm quite amazed I've gone so long without a decent sized telly but now the panel is on the horizon I hope it'll be worth it.
    I'm sure it will be though and if it isn't there is a Pioneer I might take a longer look at:)

    The 6 series is great, the 7 series still will be, and those funky new cards! Think I'll be going for a 42PHD, there's no point in a 50" for me, mine hides behind a 7ft projection screen when not in use.

    MAW the specs for the 7 series on most UK sites are flat out wrong. It's not just input cards, they upped the number of shades displayable on standard analogue video connection from 1024-1536 to 1536-2048. They changed the phosphers to make the screen to have the same burn-in resistance as CRTs and upgraded some video processing features.

    It's new glass, and new electronics, can't say PW6=PW7 cuz they are not by a long shot. :)

    Er' I have the .PDF's. As for changing the phosphors, that's what the hype says. But don't get me wrong, I have no problem with the 6 series resistance to screenburn. They are already bomb proof.

    So does this mean the 7gen stuff is nuke proof? :p

    What about the added colours and improved I/P conversion + all those (could be useless) processing effects? :)

    You'll have to get out a magnifying glass to see the difference I think, but why is that a problem. The 6 is lovely, we are splitting hairs to find fault with it. I'm sure that cumulatively the treaks they do each year do improve things, just that each new model is now such a small amount 'better' than the last, because there simply are no quantum leaps left to be made, except in manufacturing process. That might make them affordable to a majority, rather than the top 2% of earners.
