I'm wondering if they are better or worse or? Thanks for the help in clearing this up for me before I buy!
The biggest difference is that the C2 does not have any sort of Anti-Reflective filter like your X1 does so it's very reflective compared to your X1. The X24 (Costco and maybe Sam's Club) is the replacement for the X1, and seems to basically a C2 but with an Anti-Reflective Filter added. Last year the C1 seemed to have more pop than the X1 and we attributed that to the fact that the C1 was basically an X1 with no AR Filter, so the same should hold true between the C2 and S2.
The C2 and X24 have more shades of gradation than the X1
The C2 and X24 have one less HDMI input than the X1
The C2 and X24 should have better contrast than the X1
I've been entrusted with picking a new TV for my ill sister-in-law and i will be getting her a 50X24 at Costco primarily because it has the AR Filter. She's watching a lot of TV during the day, and she has to keep her blinds closed to see her current TV and it's depressing, and i'm positive that the X24 will work great with her blinds wide open.http://www2.panasonic.com/webapp/wcs...392531|329233|
