The scaling elecronics in the Pioneer media boxes (made by Sharp) are actually quite a bit inferior quality to that on the plug-in-cards for the cheaper Pioneer plasma models like the 433CMX and 503CMX, plus you can buy 3rd party cards for more features too. Avoid the media box models!

Second, a media box is upgradeable or can be changed out with a newer model for future connection methods.
|The better plasma displays like Panasonic and Pioneer have plug-in cards instead of the media box. And there have been upgraded 3rd party cards for them unlike the media boxes. Also the media boxes from Sharp have had known inferior quality scaling than the cards.|
