I believe when it was released in japan the translated amount came out to $2800, but for the american version and the amercian release its $2000, and some places are going to be selling it for below $1500.

The 7000 was indeed sold in this country beginning near the end of August by the gray goods importers. It was sold for $3000 and that included a translated manual as well as a translation stick on label set for the remote and front and real panel. I used one that was purchased by a local video service bureau.


As to pros and cons- I think the decision lies in these two issues:

1. Do you NEED 1394 I/O ? If so then buy the 7000.

2. Do you want DVD-RAM or DVD-RW for your rewritable media?



From what I have seen, working with both Pioneer and Panasonic, it really boils down to the above two issues. I'm happy that the Pioneer unit is being offered at a more competitive price structure as this will generate more demand for the product.
