Not at all to be a grinch, but please post info in the existing 12g thread.


15 pages of speculation?

Time for a new dedicated thread.

There doesn't seem to be much difference between the P42G10 and P42S1.


It would be nice if they listed the MSRPs.

I don't see any differences between the 42-inch versions of the G10 and S1.


They both feature:


Neo PDP design

THX certified

1080 lines of motion resolution

40,000:1 native contrast ratio

Infinite Black panel




Which one should I get? I guess the least expensive one.



Edit:


Upon further reading the G10 series has the web menu and image viewer -- features basically useless to me.


I guess I'll be getting the TC-P42S1 in March.

Probably not much better than the 08 lineup if the contrast is listed at only 40,000:1

Up from the 80U's 20,000:1.


The new models have a 2,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, up from 1,000,000:1 on the '08 models.


I've learned not to put too much stock into the stated contrast ratio, as it's only part of the black level equation.


Surely there are other things at work here that will give the '09 models very impressive black levels.

I agree Shawn. Black levels will be much, much deeper than the 11G Panny's. I will bet the NeoPDP will be about the same street price as what the current prices are with the PZ800 and PZ850 displays.
