Difference betwen PX60 and PX600

There is a lot of talk about the PX60 but little about the PX600. Now that the new Panasonic is on sale could someone tell us the actual differences between the PX60 and the PX600?

I think PX600 has the following features which are not on PX60

Surround sound....
PIP (Picture in Pciture).....
SD Card slot...

Looking at the brochure from italy that has been posted I think the only differences are that the 600 will have better sound, an sd card slot and a pc card slot.

From what I can tell from the spec the actual picture technology seems to be the same.

Thanks for that Superwof. At last some information about the new models! The 600 appears to be different in any significance only in the speaker system.

I seem to recall reading there is a more advanced remote control as well.

Perhaps better build quality and menu system tweaks?? Just guessing though.

Looking at the Italian brochure the Px600 look alot sleeker hanging on the wall, but that is obviously all down to personal taste

Edit...

Don't worry Superwof I won't delete those thanks ;)

Edit Edit...
Maybe a PX60 owner will be able to advise if the manual received with the PX60 also has PX600 on the front.

I have been waiting for the TH-42PV600 to go on sale. Now I am wondering why I should wait when the TH-42PX60 is already available.

Are the only differences:

  • PIP
  • Memory card feature, which is not that great anyway
  • Slightly better speaker system
  • More visually appealing look (less silver at bottom of screen and a wider black borders).

Are the PQ and connectivity the same too?

See the 42PX60 owners thread. There is a link to a full spec sheet comparing the two screens. Apart from the points you make the specs appear identical.

Oh one other difference. The 600 range panel dimensions are measurably larger.

I think that narrow black/silver borders of PX60 looks more stylish; I don't see any reason's to wait PV600.

I saw the PX60 yesterday, and I thought it looks very cheap. Its been built down to a price thats why its only £1899. I think the PV500 looks much nicer. The picture was great though.

does not look cheap imo, looks really good up on the wall.i have had many people come around and see mine and they are amazed by thing.
how people can say it looks cheap is beyond me,everyone has different tastes,if we didnt it would be a very boring place !!!

It is my opinion, but you usually, (not always) get what you pay for in this world. I don't have a plasma yet but I was learning towards the PV500 before it got discontinued, but I can't bring myself to buy the PX60. I fear I'll have to spend more and go for the pio 436 now.

I dont think we will be able to tell if there is a difference in PQ terms until someone compares them both, or someone could email Panasonix, maybe Panasonic in Asia to ask if there are different engines in both.

I disagree.
I've seen the PX60 next to the PV500(both on cabinet stands) in Currys, The PX60 is much more stylish, those slim borders/bezels make the 42" PX60 look smaller than it really is ( about the same size as the 37" PV500). Also the colours on the PX60 are much more vivid thanks to the 50% increase in colur gradation over the PV500. Contrast ratio is also up 33% to 4000:1 (max 10000:1). If you hate Silver, then you may not like PX60 styling, but overall it looks great especially on the cabinet stand. :thumbsup:

Anyone know anything about the new remote?

I was wondering if you can now select an input easily rather than having to cycle through them all until you get to the one you want.

I prefer the look of the PX600 over the PX60. I really dislike the PX60.
How much more do you think the PX600 will cost over the PX60? I'd rather wait for that one if the price isn't so great.

After pressin the TV/AV button and in AV mode. You use the reg, yellow, blue and green buttons to navigate different AV inputs. One button is for "next" screen with PC and component etc.

Works ok for me - but it isnt a one button enter from scratch.

Does anyone know for definite if there will be a UK model of the 37PX600 ?

I noticed in the Italian Panasonic catalogue that for DVB tuner it mentions this is available on the "E" model only for the 50" and 42" PX600 models and all 3 sizes of the PX60, but just a blank for the 37PX600.

Have searched the mass of info about new Panasonic range on the forums but can't seem to find a definitive answer.
Apologies if I have missed it.

Thanks

I suspect there will be, the Panny swiss website already has one up on their site.

hi,
as i have seen both the pv600 and the 60 side by side ,i can tell you that the picture is the same.
the sound on the 600 is better and remote control is designed different .
the black bezzel is wider and thats basically it.
