I've been doing some research to try and find exactly when Panasonic stopped making their plasma EDTV's, as I'm looking to upgrade mine (specifically for 480p gaming, I've got plenty of HDTV's for other uses). I'm hoping someone here happens to be savvy on this topic.
The biggest problem I'm having is finding the equivalent consumer models for industrial/professional panels. I believe
the last professional model they made was the TH-xxPWD8UK
(37" and 42" are what I've seen IIRC). My best guess is that the TH-PDxx50u
is the consumer version of the same TV, mainly because it's got the same contrast ratio and is listed as having an "eight generation plasma panel", but I'm not positive.
As for the last consumer model they released, it appears to be the TH-PDxx60u
though I'm much less sure about this one. I pretty much just added onto the number at the end in an attempt to find the newest one that returned Google results; not exactly a scientific approach.
Can anyone confirm or deny any of this research, or have anything else to contribute? Any help would be appreciated!
