Th42pw6 V TH42pw5



Please help, I am just about to invest in my first plasma and have narrowed it down to a 42 inch Panasonic. I have found a bargain buy TH42PW5 for ₤2100, but can't find a PW6 (in silver) anywhere for less than ₤2800. Is there much of a difference between the two to warrant spending the extra ₤700.

Also is it worth buying the media box with it?



thanks for that, any ideas on the comparison between the two sets?

Bit tricky, some PW5 owners tend to think the 6 series was a step backwards. However, some PW6 onwers think the 6 series solved two main issues with the PW5, namely the buzzing problem and the screen flickering problem.

I have a 6 series and love it, but didn't compare it to a 5, only other plasma manufacturers.

Given the slight difference in cost between the PW5 and PW6 that I found, I would go for the 6 series, especially as the 7 series is due out Sept some time...

You could also look at the PWD6 which is the same as the PW6 just in a black (charcoal) finish - this is a little cheaper again and almost exaclty the same price as the PW5 you have been offered.

Good Luck! ;)
