I've read several posts that mention the choice of commercial vs. consumer plasma displays.

Can someone give me an explanation of the meaning of these two terms and some of the advantages and disadvantages of each.

Thanks.

Consumer usually includes integrated tuner, speakers, and stand. Commercial does not. Commercial can be significantly cheaper for the same pic quality(by $1000 or more). The tuner is not needed for DVD or dish (nor digital cable, I think). For analog cable, your VCR tuner will do. The included speakers on the consumer models are not of high quality and most people prefer a seperate audio/surround system. The stand can be bought for 150-200 or may not be needed at all if wall mounting. There may be other differences as well such as input options that varies from make to make.
