I have still new in box from BB a PN50B450 I got one week ago. The C450 is now in stock at the same store for the same price I paid (2010 models are lower priced). With an hour of driving I could exchange it (or maybe get them to refund me 10% or so, which is what they'd mark mine down by if they had to sell it again). Assuming I don't get a 'buzzing' unit like some posters here, are there any claimed improvements in picture quality or features over last year's B model?
The BB site indicates the C adds a USB port, loses a Composite input, and possibly loses "Internet connectivity" (but might just be BB's site does not have complete specs yet). The power consumption is a little lower (was already low), and the interestingly the weight has gone from 77 to 52 lbs! That's gotta mean something... maybe related to the leaner power consumption? The thickness has decreased 1/20", which implies different construction.
But is the picture and sound the same as last year? Thanks for any guidance on whether i should exchange mine.
