    It will accept a Hi-Def Video signal and panasonic quote 60,000 hours to the half brightness point. 8 hours TV a day 60,000/8=7500 7500/365.25=20.5
    thats 20.5 years YEARS at 8 hours a day that actually longer than a CRT....... which have 30-40,000 hour lifespans.............

    Accept it, but only display it at the best resolution of the panel, which isn't hidef? Right?

    Just checking as I'm looking to buy one of these too, possibly.

    Correct general still looks better than SD video tho as the anle has loads of extra data to to play with.

    Thanks. Wether you know it or not, you've been quite helpful when it comes to plasmas. You pop up in every post just about. :D

    The pw6 looks to be an excellent choice. My 'only' concern is that the pw7 is already plummeting in price with brackets and boards included in the price.

    If you know of anywhere offering the pw7 + bracket + scart/component for close to the pw6 price with interest free I'll be highly impressed. :laugh:

    Well the Novatech deal does it all delivered for the pw6 for £1545.

    10% deposit with the remainder paid within 12 months.

    As close to that as possible.

    I've seen the pw7 alone for £1678, but no bracket or board included.

    No budget as such as it's the deferred payment I want. ie, too skint to pay outright now, but want a quality display if possible. Want my cake and eat it. :)

    I know what you mean...... AV-sales i think will do deffered but they dont advertise it i would give them a call and ask for aa quote on the kit you are after ie Panel boards and mount buying all from one place with bits and cables etc and spreading it will probably get you a better overall deal than doing it peicemeal... i would strectch to the PW7 if you can....

    The HD version I'd stretch for if I had the cash, but from the countless posts between the SD two, there doesn't seem to be too much difference to shout about considering the price gap.

    I can only pitch it once or twice to my wife before she sniffs the word upgrade. :blush:

    All I can say is that I opted for the PW6 due the price at the time I put it on the wall

    and................................................................

    IT'S FANTASTIC!!!!


    I am sure there are why's and wherefores for all the screens but can recommend the PW6.

    #I watch lots of films and football + moto GP
