BruZZi, Just saw the pic of the PD60U. Looks the same as the PD50U but the specs on the width of the 60U show that it is 42" where as the 50U is 42 3/64"
The dimensions in mm are basically the same:
PD50U= 1068mm x 701mm x 97mm
PD60U= 1068mm x 701mm x 96,5mm
It's kinda hard to convert mm to inches.
Also the 60U looks like a darker shade of grey than the 50U. Can you confirm if there is an actual difference between the 50U and 60U?
It does look darker but I think it's just that pic.
I'm kind of disappointed in Panasonic that there is no change in the look.
Me too. The 60U design is much better IMO.
Maybe the 42"ED is reaching near the bottom on the price/margin scale so they are trying to invest as little as possible in R&D for the ED to remain profitable.
That's pretty much it as the 42PD60 comes with only one HDMI input.
BTW: The Manual for the TH-42PD60U is already available for download:http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPER...D60U-MULTI.PDF
