I'm told from Hitatchi that 42PD5200 has the same panel and is equal to 42PMA500, except that PMA500 has no tuner and DVI-input. Lack of DVI-input is not acceptable, so that "monitor" is out of question... However, Sony has a plasma "monitor" that have DVI, model PFM-42X1N (1024x768, 1billion colours, 3000:1 contrast ratio). This Sony "monitor" outperforms that Hitatchi 42PD5200 (1024x1024, 16.7mill colours, 1000:1 contrast ratio) - on paper spec... Plasma "monitors" are not reviewed as much as plasma "TVs" by the AV-magazines. Therefore I have no ideá how this "monitor" performs playing video/TV compared to plasma "TVs". I will ONLY use DVI-input, so I don't care about scart, composite and s-video. Also I don't care about built-in tuner, and neither (of course) speakers.
