Hello, this my first post to this thread. I am planning to buy 42-inch HITACHI plasma display for use with HCPC (using DVI connector of plasma). Now I am wondering whether I should buy 42PMA500E or one of 42PD5000-series panel. I am planning to use Nebula Digi-TV card so I wouldn't need built in tuner ( 42PD5200) or AV-box (42PD5300) or even fitted video board (42PD5100). But the problem is that I have not yet clear understanding of differencies between 42PMA500E and 42PD5000-series plasma panels (I mean panel itself)? Actually one of the finnish Hitachi resellers told me that they are excatly same panels, absolutely no differencies. But this is hard to belive because the price of 42PMA500E here in Finland is 4000 and the price of 42PD5200 is 3750 (cheapest 5000-series panel). If the panels itself are indentical then buying 42PD5200 (of course) would be better deal. So, is there any technical differencies and which model would You recommend for use with HCPC (watching digi-TV channels and DVD, no gaming). Thanks in advance.
