    Does anyone know the difference between the two Panasonic Plasmas TH42PWD5 and TH42PW5B?

    Except for the price difference of about £450 I cannot find any difference between these two models.

    Does anyone know:confused: ?

    from what i understand, neither of these are hdtv-ready? is that correct- the resolution (852 x 480) isn't high enough? please correct me if wrong, the higher model is?

    The high resolution 42 inch Panny is the TH42PHD5 - 1028x768.

    Apparently it doesn't suffer from the same amount of flicker as the lower res version but I cannot confirm as I never found one on display to look at.

    @ vonhosen: Thanks for the links!

    As it seems the TH42PW5B is technically identical to the TH42PWD5, but has much more inputs - Component/RGB, S-VHS, Composite and 15-pin VGA instead of only the 15-pin VGA connector.

    Did I get this right?

    BNC or DVI terminal boards are accessories with WD5BX.
    BNC board comes with the W5B
    Also WD5BX is black
    W5B silver

    @lab: The link you posted is a comparison between the low res (852x480) and high res (1024x768) model.

    I cannot afford to buy the high res model anyways, therefore I was interested in the differences between the two (or are there more?) low res models.
