    Hi

    Could some one tell me if the cases of both the 37 and 42 inch are identical( cept in size of course)

    All the original pics of them seemed very similar but after checking the panasonic site the 37inch seems to have a different style to the 42.

    http://www.panasonic.co.uk/plasma-tv/th37pv500ped/index.htm
    (now identical in look to the SD version)

    thanks

    I'm pretty sure that the side edges (with the speakers) stay about the same size as the screen size increases, so the 50" looks a bit more Pio-like. Panasonic do seem to be 'featuring' more black edging on the screen itself, which confuses things as well...

    TH37PV500:
    resolution: 1024 x 720

    TH42PV500
    resolution: 1024 x 768

    hate to say it but I think the 50 chasis looks better than the 500 one.
    Not a fan of the shiny "gloss" type finish of the 500. Just my opinion tho.

    Ordered the 37 "500 all the same tho.

    Same here. But I've gotten used to it and it doesn't look that bad at all now.

    How much diffferent would this make in viewing?

    I guess that the 37" version wouldn't have any scaling with HD images? Whereas the 42" would be better for "normal" PC usage?

    Or am I missing something here?
