    The two Thompson 42" screens (42WP95U and 42WS95UF) are actually one and the same plasma display its just the inclusion of the Front End Box (FEB94U) that marks the distinction.

    If you are not planning on using the DVI input on the display and the ability to plug in SCART connectors and have a terrestrial TV tuner with Teletext is more appropriate to you then possibly the Panel with the tuner (42WS95UF) is for you.

    What looks interesting with this panel over most of the other manufacturers offering an external TV tuner is that you retain your other inputs even when the tuner is connected - so if you find the tuner degrades the signal on any of your high quality (DVD) sources you can bypass it.

    We have only just been offered this range of panels and are awaiting a demo unit before we decide if we will add it to our product line up so I cant say if the picture quality is up to speed or not.

    Best regards

    Me too - trying to get tech specs is proving a bit of a pain.

    All I have so far is:
    852 x 480 pixels
    450:1 contrast ratio
    160 deg viewing angle
    Class B IR and RF filters
    2 x composite video in
    1 x S-Video in
    1 x RGBHV video in
    1 x RGB D-Sub in
    1 x Component RGB?
    1 x DVI

    And the tuner has 3 x SCART (2xRBG) (1xS-Video)

    As these screens are a joint development with NEC I guess we can look to see if we can cross reference from the current or previous NEC model line up.

    I'll get back to you if I can get my hands on more info.

    Best regards

    Joe
