    From what I was told the Toshiba is a re-badged panasonic, identical in every way except the badge on the front and the Tosh only comes in Silver. In my opinion these plasmas offer outstanding picture quality, I am VERY happy with mine.

    They come with three sets of inputs:
    PC Input (15 pin connector)
    AV - this can either be single composite OR S-Video, you cannot use both at the same time - connecting s-vid disables the composite input.
    Component inputs - which can be R/G/B H-Sync V-Sync or the Pr Pb Y type.

    The component and composite inputs are usually phono connectors but I have seen some advertised with BNC connectors so best check before ordering.

    John Sim is currently about to release a new box of tricks that converts an RGB signal to component, so if you don't want to buy a new DVD player you could use this (once its available) to connect a DVD player that does not have component output to the component inputs of the Plasma.
