    7-series isn't alot better, it lacks several features from the 6-series which you must pay extra for with the 7-series.

    You don't get YUV on the HD-15 input on the 7-series which in turn makes you run out and buy a component board for it......

    There are several reports from fluctating brightness over parts of the screen, this is a real problem in the U.S on several forums, not as many problems reported here in Europe.

    HDMI board is useless on the 7-series in our part of the world....

    Can't figure out one thing that the 7-series is better at as they look the same .

    I hate silver. I remember it from the 70's and it went out of style then. Black always looks good. The charcoal looks black anyway ;-)
