    Hello-

    I'm trying to decide between two Panasonic models:
    TH-42PX20U/P or the TH-42PHD6UY

    Any comments on the difference between the two?

    The TH-42PHD6UY seems to be a "commercial" plasma with no speakers, but is significantly cheaper.

    Thanks in advance,
    Peter

    The 42phdy is a true hi def panel and has a contrast ratio of 3000.1 and a res of 1024x768.

    the other model has a built in tuner and i think has acurity processing and a contrast ratio of 4000.1 but has a lower res of 852x480. (in uk this is a different model)

    personaly my money would go on the hi definition panel as the other one will down convert anything above 480p to its native res.

    also depends if u want the tuner but if u use digital box/sky why bother.

    hope that helps

    I believe the TH-42PX20U is the HD equivalent of the TH-42PA20, ie it includes a tuner and built in sockets.
    The only place I have heard of availability of it is the US, and we will probably never see it in the UK.
    Panasonic consumer UK do not see a requirement to sell either HD version to the uk, probably due to our broadcast standards.

    Steve.

    Yeah steve is quite right the all in one is a us only model and i think it has a hdmi input as well. did a google search on it. nice set looks tops.
    dont see why panasonic wont release it here. i expect will see it in uk next year as a new product.....

    we do have a hidef pany but is considered to be a comercial model.
